Using WNDR3700 with WN802Tv2

I recently purchased a WNDR3700 to take advantage of it's 5GHz/802.11n features. The product works fine, although my RF range is limited, so I also purchased 2 x WN802Tv2's, which Netgear confirmed were compatible with the WNDR3700.

I assume the only parameters I need to set in the WNDR3700 are in the 'Wireless Repeating Function', where I have set the 'Enable Wireless Repeating Function' and have selected 'Wireless Base Station', with the WN802Tv2's MAC address entered.

However, I am struggling to set up the WN802Tv2 correctly and am guessing the problem is in the 'Bridging and Repeating'. Can anyone offer me advice on what should be set in the WN802Tv2?

WNDR3700: V1.0.4.68
WN802Tv2: V3.1.3

I don't use repeating myself, but I'm pretty sure that's the options for setting the '3700 as a repeater with another Access Point as the base station, but in your setup the '3700 is the base station. I don't think you need to do anything with the '3700 wireless settings other than possibly change the encryption if the 802T's don't support WPA/WPA2.

Yes, I forgot to mention.... Seems I can only use WEP for security when setting up a repeater (WN802Tv2) to work with the WNDR3700. I've set that up, but it's the WN802Tv2 I'm really struggling with.

I've enabled 'Bridging and Repeating' in the 802 to 'Wireless Point–to–Point Bridge', but I find that whilst my PCs will connect to the internet via the 802, other devices like my WiFi radio fail to connect.

I had to install the older firmware on the WN802Tv2, 2.0.1 I believe, before I got mines to work. Hope this helps.
