These netgear access points / extenders are a waste of time .... what is the point buying another expensive netgear product when top end netgear routers like DGND 3300v2 only support WEP security on the G wireless std.
The original question was about trying to connect two routers wirelessly to one another like point to point bridge kind of thing. These extenders can offer the best security and the best wireless experience but what is the point if the routers themselves do not support these features in the context that the poster requires from his netgear products.

In fact the ‘base router’ is unaware that data is being repeated and treats the repeater just like any other wireless client. Some repeaters/extenders also use two radio devices so they can even re-transmit on a different non-overlapping 2.4GHz channel which means no significant loss of throughput.
June recommended those range extenders specifically for those reasons.
This manual might clear up a few points;
