I am not well versed on the 877w, but i do know that having a wap200 repeat a enterprise or consumer device can be tricky. What i would try first is setup the 877w up with no security and see if it will repeat the signal at that point. If it connects at that point increase the security and verify connection. If it won't connect with no security/ i would verify that you have the wireless mac-address of the 877w and not the physical address, check to see if there is an option in the 877w to allow its ssid to be repeated. Try this and let me know how it goes.
The WAP200 definitely was configured with the wireless MAC of the 877W, but wouldn’t repeat.
Time being of the essence, I decided to disable wireless on the 877W and go with two WAP200 units, one in AP mode and one in Repeater. In AP mode, there is a setting to “allow wireless signal to be repeated”. Maybe there was a way of setting this on the 877W.
This took almost no time at all to set up, and provides great wireless coverage.
No problem mark, glad I could help. Yeah the wap200's are very good devices and are pretty simple in configuration with one another. Let us know if you get the 877w to work and what you did to accomplish this.

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