Default DGN2000 configuration to use as access point

Hi,

I moved to a condominio where they supply wireless Internet. Since my connection to their router is low and I have a DGN2000, I would like to use my device to connect to their router (moving the DGN2000 into the bedroom where there is much better wireless connection to their router) and then connect to the DGN2000 to use it as a repeater.
Can this be done and if so what do I have to set up/change? I reseted the DGN2000 to the factory setting.

Here are the ipconfig /all settings while connected to their network:
Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection 2:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :

Thank you very much for any help.

Thanks again mate.
Since the condo is frequently visited by guests with their Laptops, MAC addresses of the individual PC's can't be added (Access Control has to be turned off).
Bummer... :-(
Do you have any other solution?

Cheers :-)

Thanks again mate. I pu4rchased and connected the WN2000RPT.
Is there any way to set up this device as an additional firewall or separate me from the existing network (so nobody else on the existing network sees my network/PCs)?
