access point setup in repeater mode

Ok I have a netgear cg3100 router, I would like to setup an access point in repeater mode so that I can extend the range of my existing wireless signal using the same ssid.

I think I have connected correctly but not sure.

if i ping the tplink it pings ok.

the signal strength further afield seams just as weak as before

maybe you will spot a setup error or advise how to test this.

regards in advance, i did notice that the repaeter wifi setup appears to keep changing channel numbers.

screen shots attached.

regards in advance.

Yes i have it plugged in as it was close to a switch,  ok so if i leave it plugged in and just set it to ap. If its set to a different channel will i still get seamless transfer from different zones? ie just one ssid?
