Default WNDR3700 with WDS - how to connect to admin console on repeater?

Hi Folks,

I've recently tried to setup WDS between my existing DG834G and a new WNDR3700. I eventually got the WDS connected between the two routers after stuffing up the MAC addresses a few times - but that's another story.

My trouble is now - not being able to access the admin console on the remote router/repeater (WNDR3700). Is there any way to do this? Or have I done something wrong?

Here is an overview of my setup:
DG834G is connected to the internet and setup as the "Repeater with Wireless Client Association" with the MAC address of the WNDR3700 as the Remote MAC address. It has a IP address of and provides DHCP for the range I've also setup a few IP address associations for various devices in the DHCP range, including the WNDR3700 - but this doesn't seem to be getting allocated.

The WNDR3700 is setup as the repeater on the 2.4Ghz Channel, but when I tried to set the IP address to the same IP allocated on the DG834G I kept on giving me an error. DHCP is turned off on this router.

So I'm able to connect to the Ethernet port and/or wireless-n on the WNDR3700 and connect through to the DG834G and also the internet - which is all good, but I don't seem to be able to access the admin console for the WNDR3700 - which I need to be able to do to setup USB shares, etc.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

DHCP is disabled on 3700
do not use if DG uses

3700 (DHCP disabled)
