Wireless Extender kills my internet connection

I currently get my internet connection from a friend in the next
village. We have a couple of 802.11g AP's with directional antennas to
send the signal from his house to mine. The AP at my end then goes
into a Linksys Router, so that my network is seperate to his. From my
linksys Router I have a netgear ME102 AP for my wireless lan in the
house. Unfortunately the signal doesn't reach to all corners of my
house so I bought a DLink DWL-G710 range extender. This seems to work
well with regards to repeating the signal from the Netgear AP.

My problem is, after about 5 mins of use, the internet connection dies.
I can still connect to all machines on my local network through the
extender and AP, but I think the DWL-G710 is interfering with the
Wireless connection to my friends house. His connection is on channel
6 and mine is on channel 1.

Any help will be appreciated.

Quite possibly, you'd do better to try to relocate the ME102 to
somewhere central in the house. You'd be surprised at how much
difference moving it to the other side of just one wall can make.
