Configuring DLINK 900AP+ Access Point in Repeater Mode

I have 2 DLINK 900 AP+ Access Points. One is connected to a switch. I want to use the other to repeat the signal.  I see how to select Repeat Mode and enter the MAC address of the access point I want to repeat.  However, which MAC address do I enter, the Ethernet (LAN) address of the 900AP+ or its Wireless MAC address.

The documentation says the Ethernet (LAN) MAC address. However, when I called Dlink on a related issue they said to enter the Wireless MAC address .... I tried both and I don't see any improvement on my connection either way.

So, please advise which MAC address should be entered into the repeater device.
How can I tell that the repeater is working properly, since my understanding is that the repeater is transparent and when I look at my connection, it looks like I am connected to the original access point.

i'm gonna approach this from a logical viewpoint. The Repeater AP is going to communicate with the radio interface, so you need to put in the MAC address of the Radio interface.

You can read this from the status menu of the Laptop when you connect it to the Root AP

Try this and see.
