Default Wifi repeater bother. N1 only connecting to network.

Ok, so I find network stuff pretty confusing...

I basically managed to set up a tplink wifi range extender (which I already owned) in my flat because the router supplied by my ISP is crap and can barely make it through walls.

Strangely, though my N1 connects fine to the internet via the router, when I walk out of the room and it connects to the range extender, the wifi logo changes to white instead of green, the internet cannot be used, but it remains connected to the network.

It can be got to work by restarting the router while the phone is connected to the extender and away from the router, but if at any point it connects to the router, then reconnects to the extender it will again turn white and loose connectivity with the internet.

It's pretty odd behaviour, but I imagine it's something to do with IP addresses, DNS and the like. The extender should only really be repeating signals, but somehow this must be confusing either my phone or the router.

Is there something I can do about this? Any help will be really appreciated!
