So I am currently deploying a Wi-Fi Network based around Cisco WAP-321. I use the CP function with a Radius server to authentify my users. So far so good, when a user connect to one of the AP and uses his credentials, he can login and access Internet without any trouble. But I also use some Wi-Fi repeaters (Netgear WN-1000RP) to extend the range of my wireless network in places I can't install an AP. The repeaters effectively extends the range of my network, and I can connect on them without any trouble when the CP is turned off. However, when I turn on the CP, I access the login web page and enter my credentials, but no matter what, I can't login while connected on the repeater. After some research, it looks like I have to manually enter the MAC address in the MAC trough list of the AP. Except such a feature doesn't seem to exist on the WAP-321. I have tried using WDS bridge and Workgroup bridge, but without success, since I think it's only compatible with WAP-321 and WAP-121 devices.
So I am kind of running out of ideas to make this work, and I would be very grateful if someone could help me out.
Thanks in advance, do not hesitate to ask me for more informations if needed.

it simplifies manual conversion of a WAP with a static ip address to a
