WN1000RP not "routing" ?!
I'm having a strange behaviour here with one of the WN1000RP repeaters.
. Full Static IP addresses, all in same subnet;
. WiFi access point : Netgear WG602v4,
. Not broadcasting the SSID ;
. Access controll set on MAC address through the access point;
. Only one router (IP level only).
. I've done it "manual", set up an IP address in local & routed network;
. DNS : OK;
. The repeater is able to check for updates (and it says "there is no new udpate") ;
. Firmware version : 184.108.40.206 (already camed wit it);
. Added the MAC address of the repeater to the access point;
. Added the "translated" addresses of connected devices to the access point (one per device);
. Set a new password;
. SSID broadcasting disabled (so WPS has been automatically disabled);
Problems & observations :
. All three leds are green;
. It has never asked me for password while trying to connect (always direct access to the interface);
. I can ping any device (including the router) into the local network, I also can ping external IP addresses from connected devices through the repeater. But cannot access any website ! It sounds like DNS is not allowed to pass trhough the repeater (!?)
. Did I forgot to "enable" something to make password being asked before each connection to the repeater admin interface ?
. How does the repeater work with DNS ? does it perform some kind of proxy service ?
Thank you in advance for your help !

2. Wait for the Status light (Second light) Turn solid green.
3. Search for wifi network and connect to NETGEAR_EXT. (It is an open network so no password needed).
4. Open a browser and go to www.mywifiext.net
5. Follow the prompts.
