    I have a similar problem to thread with same name dated 31-Jul-2010-that is now closed. I'm using Qwest internet with Actiontec PK5000, and I have to use my Netgear WNR2000v3 as a repeater.The Netgear is working as a repeater however I can't get internet through the LAN connections on the repeater. After checking the settings over and over again I'm beginning to think the repeater will only work with wifi. I need to hook up my desktop in the office, DirectTV, and Blueray player LAN connections to my repeater. If their is something you might know about that I am overlooking, any help is greatly appreciated.

    To use the ethernet you may have to use Wireless Bridge (or AP Client) mode. I don't know if it can work as a Repeater and Wireless Bridge at the same time.
