WMP54G and WRE54G- Block MAC

    I have just recently purchased a WRE54G Repeater and have successfully configured it. When I connect my laptop to my network it shows a single SSID. The laptop has a Intel ProSet wireless card in it. The software is smart enough to combine both SSID's into a single SSID Profile and use the AP which has the strongest signal.

    The desktop on the other hand is not so smart. The desktop has a WMP54G card in it and shows two networks with the same SSID (one for the repeater and the other for the router). For some reason Linksys's Wireless Network Monitor wants to choose the weaker of the two signals and use that. Every so often it connects to the repeater.

    My question is there any way to tell the Wireless Network Monitor to ONLY use the repeaters MAC? I want it to ignore the MAC on the router.

    If anyone has a solution to this I would be grateful!
