Good Day,
I am trying to set up a repeater with a Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 Wireless-G MIMO access point/repeater with DD-WRT v.24Beta installed. I found a few different places (on the web) that have very specific instructions for setting up a repeater in this fashion, but I can't seem to get it working. I follow all the steps exactly but can't get access to the web over this thing. I've tried setting up in client mode and that doesn't work either. The access point I'm trying to extend is a Cisco Aironet 1230.

I notice that after configuring everything in the instructions, I go to the wireless sub-tab on the status tab and click the Site Survey button, and I see the access point there. If I click the Join button at the end I get a confirmation. Then I click the Close button and the page refreshes and goes back to the wireless setup page back on the second tab, but still nothing works.

And help would certainly be appreciated.
