Problem with Repeater

Have a question or want to start a discussion? Post it! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

For quite some time, I used a ZyXEL WAP3205 wireless repeater with a
Westell 327W (provided by Verizon).

Recently, I switched to Comcast and bought a Netgear WNDR3700v4 and a
Motorola SB6121. Everything that connects to the Netgear works fine.

However, I cannot figure out how to configure the Netgear ZyXEL so they
function as repeater and base station (if that is the correct terminology).

The Z shows up in a list of APs (I'm using Wifi Analyzer on a Samsung
Galaxy S3) but will not connect UNLESS I run an Ethernet cable from the
Z to the Netgear!

Can anyone help?

Both devices have the same security/password, channel, and SSID.

Thanks.
