Can't get two WPN824v3 Routers to work in Base / Repeater Mode

I have two v3 routers and I'm following the directions here:

http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/68

The Base Station works fine but once I put the other WPN824v3 in Repeater mode, assign its IP address, and fill in the MAC address of the base station, the router resets itself and becomes inaccessible with a 169.x.x.x address.  I have to hard reset to connect to the router again.  

What am I doing wrong on the repeater router?  I've tried setting the LAN address and turning off DHCP but neither change worked.  Thanks for any help you can offer.

Are you setting the IP of the repeater to a new address in the same subnet as the base?

Rick, I tried it both ways - first as an address on the Base network and again as its own subnet.  Both times failed.

Faulty router of all things.  These were both brand new and so it didn't register with me at first.
