  1. just converted from isdn to DSL - here is my problem

    in order to get the d-link 300t to connect through my router I had to set
    the d-link 614+ to get the DHCP automatically - no problem their everything
    works fine (can connect wired and wireless) - my problem starts when I try
    to use the d-link 800ap+ in repeater mode (large house - former abbey - 3ft
    thick walls) set the MAC address to the routers MAC address (as I did when
    I used isdn and everything worked fine) but no luck - all the lights glow
    etc. but no wireless connection through the 800AP+ - the 800 is set by
    default to static IP - tried changing it to DHCP still no luck - tried
    setting it to the 300 MAC address - no luck - could this be caused by the
    router being set to auto DHCP (which it has to with to 300t) - anybody HELP!

    Have you tried plugging into a PC and changing to wireless client mode.
    Once working in this mode, change to repeater mode. It should retain the
    settings and work.
