Belkin 7130 range extender causing me headaches!

Hi all,
Ive got a Belkin WRE 7130 and its been working fine, for the most part.

However, if I turn it off and then turn it back on it seems to flip out, it doesnt seem to connect to my router (via the bridge that was working fine before the restart), and all PCs connecting via the WRE dont get proper IP addresses.

Ive done some diagnotics, I connected directly to the router and it appears that I couldnt ping the 7130 (, from PCs connected to the 7130 I cant reach it unless i manually config their IP addresses and set it as the gateway, also I cant ping the router through it (

All I get is "Limited Connectivity", any ideas guys?

    I would press the reset button and try reconfiguring the range extender. Sounds like it may need that. If it stll does the same it is time to get a new one. I like the D-LINKs myself.
