I have a TrendNet TEW-639GR wireless router working with a EnGenius ERB9250 Wireless repeater. They seem to be working together but I have some questions regarding the setup.

1) Both are using the same channel, is this correct? They show up as two separate signals on a WiFi scanner with the same name, on the same channel, with two separate mac addresses.

2) How do I force my portable devices to connect to the repeater rather than the router? When I go to the Windows 7 "connect" page I see only one network choice (because they are sharing the same name). Sometimes the portable devices will connect to the router other times they will connect to the repeater.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide

Isn't that the point of having a Repeater? To connect to the stronger signal?

I've heard a few other people complain about that also. I have no experience with them, and know of no solution.
