Using WAP54G to boost signal

    Hi Everyone

    My boss has a WRT54G transmitting a wireless network from his shed (where his internet connection is), he has got a WAP54G to put in the house to receive the signal and transmit it around the house.

    I have read that the WAP54G can act in "repeater mode", I assume this is where it is simply passing on the signal from the WRT54G. How do I set it up in this mode?

    I have setup the WAP54G with the right IP address for the network, the right SSID and the right WEP key. The laptop in the house can see the network and connect, but I'm not sure what to put as the gateway. No matter what I try the laptop can connect to the network but can't access the internet.

    Note that "Obtain IP address automatically" never seems to work on the laptop.

    Thanks for any help you can give me.
