hi chucky charms

Thanks 4 the reply
the situation was eventually solved due to the fact that i found a spare wireless router.
I found it so much easier to run a cable to the second wireless router and used that as an acces point.
Worked like a charm.I know this may sound baffling (about me not solving the eventual problem about the repeater,but i had a client on my back who wanted his wireless network extended).

But thanx 4 anyway your reply ,it opened up my eyes to a few things
