Unhappy Using DG834GT as a repeater

Can anyone help me figure out how to set up two DG834GT routers, one as a master router with internet connection and the 2nd GT as a repeater?

I have the WDS firmware installed on both but it only allows me to enter the SSID of the network I want to repeat, and once enabled it makes the wireless network invisible and unavailable. So clearly there is some sort of conflict.

I can't find any guides on the web at all, they all refer to different Netgear equipment.

Hi Johneboy,

Below are instructions how to set the repeating function on WNDR3300. In this example, we will be using the WNDR3300 as the Base station and we'll use the WNR3500 as a repeater. Please note that there are differences in the web interface but the idea is the same.
