Well if you are getting the DHCP broadcasts from your first router that kind of elminates anything from being blocked. Have you tried to ping the inside interface of the router? Or maybe another computer attached to the router?  

hook a pc up to the repeater directly (if it has a 4 port switch) and see if you have the same problem? If it is just one with a single ethernet port then obviously you can't do that.

Post the "ipconfig /all" and "route print" output from the command line of a PC both connect to the repeater and router if you can.

its a sitecom wl330 it only has one ethernet port i'll post results tomorrow evening the message i get back from my xbox is that it cannot relsolve dns, iphone doesnt acknowlege an internet connection and laptop does the same.

System -> IP Management -> Default Gateway on the WL-330 should be set to the LAN IP address of the WAG10N - is it?
And are you using a 192.168.xxx.xxx network with a (/24) subnet mask everywhere?

If both of those are yes, it's probably a security mismatch. Try disabling the wireless security on everything temporarily and see if stuff connects through the sitecom ok.

excellent help
Neither of those tell what the System -> IP Management -> Default Gateway setting in the WL-330 is.
You need to look in the sitecom's setup menus to find that (and it should be set to
I really wish Linksys would align with Cisco, Intel, Apple et al and stop supporting wide channels in the 2.4GHz band... it's becoming the source of more problems than any other single cause.
