Setting up a WAP4400n as a repeater

I am trying to setup a WAP4410n as a wireless repeater in a remote area of my property and having much difficulty getting this accomplished. My wireless router is a WRVS4400N. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello AllenSorry to hear that

Hello Allen

Sorry to hear that your having an issue with this. 

Not knowing exactly at which point your having issues, I am going to a quick run through of how it should be set-up.

1) Set up the first WAP4410N in Access Point mode and check the box that says: Allow wireless signal to be repeated by a repeater. 
2) Enter the WIRELESS MAC Address of the second WAP4410N. 
3) Make sure you get the wireless MAC from the status pages, not the wired MAC. 
4) Set up the second AP in WDS Repeater mode and do a site survey. 
5) When it locates the first AP, enter the security, etc. and it should establish a permanent wireless connection.

If this does not help, a little more information would help. What part of the process is not working? Does the WAP's connect and you just cant get an IP?

Please let us know.
