Verify that the DHCP feature of the router is enabled. Alternately, you may want to set the PC to use static IP configurations rather than "Obtain an IP address automatically". Sometimes WinXP WiFi configuration messes connections when none WEP or WPA is used.
You may want to fix set your PC's WiFi config to IP Add:192.168.1.2; Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 and Default Gateway: 192.168..1 (that is of course assuming that your NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Router uses the 192.168.0.1 IP add).
If this still does not work, pls post back so we can figure out tricking the WinXP WiFGi config to connect.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

With Vista on the Laptop it should be just a matter of double clicking the router in the network settings, vista should automatically configure the connection.
This has happened to me before and this is what I did just to see if it worked, and it did flawlessly.

The laptop may not have the correct wireless settings same as the router.
What is the Operating system of your laptop and does it have a builtin card?

SOURCE: Wireless repeater
Might it be that your problem exist because both the 2Wire HW1700 wireless modem and the D-Link DWL-G710 have their DHCP features enabled? During the setup, use static IP adds, disable the DHCP function of the HW1700, follow setup instruction/procedures of the DWL-G710.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

The reason why people use a Encore wireless repeater is because some wireless remote client computers are out of range from the main network's access point (wireless router), or the wireless client is in the dead spot or the device you want to share to the network have no wireless interface card.
The function of a wireless repeater is basically to extend the wireless signal coverage. Wireless repeater does not authenticate, screen, secure, connect to the internet, give IP address to clients, broadcast names, etc., these are the wireless router's job. Repeater only repeats what the main wireless router does to the wireless clients.
1. Hooking up hardware connections:
As of this moment your repeater is not connected to any router or network. It has to be configured further to be able to be connected to your current network and access point router.
3. Connecting your Repeater to your existing network access point or router:
If you are using Windows 7 and your existing access point security wireless is set to WPA2 (AES), make sure your Windows 7 wireless security type properties is set to WPA2-Personal. To check go to Windows 7 Wireless Network Connection, look for your REPEATER router, right-click on it then click Properties, check the settings in the "Security" tab.>
When checking the wireless site survey, you may see two routers with the same SSID (names), these are your Access Point and the REPEATER tied together. This also means you are within the reachable range of both Access point and REPEATER.
5. To check the Repeaters user interface
At this moment, the Repeater is invisible to any client. The client's IP address is drawn from the DHCP server most likely to be also your wireless router. Therefore the IP address of the repeater is also invisible to the clients. Follow steps below:
