Connect WNR834B to wireless hotspot

I have a Rangemax WNR834B dd-wrt v24 that I would like to use as a repeater to boost the signal from a WiFi Hotspot where I live. When I log into the hotspot, it does ask for a code. I have tried the walk-thrus and tutorials on this but can't seem to get it working.

I have two netbooks running windows 7 and a wireless printer that will connect to my router. I have tried various methods to get it working, but my router does not recieve an IP address from the router. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Connect WNR834B to wireless hotspot

I set up a re1000 range extender for a neighbor, same wifi hotspot. All he has to do is open the browser and it prompts him to enter the code and it works fine, isn't that the same thing as what I'm trying to do? The hotspot will allow you to connect to the router, but no internet access until you enter the code.

Sounds like basically the same thing to me, what's the difference between an extender and a repeater?

extender JOIN the existing network
repeat uses are repeating signal which trust the mac address and must configure on both sides to connect
