Don't you need another router or something if you use this one as a repeater?

Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then Click on wireless then wireless security enable WEP security then enter WEP code it is your password to connect wifi. Then enable MAC filtering and add mac address of computer where you want internet . Then save settings and restart router. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

I think that you messed up when you set the MAC addresses ..the idea was if you have a static IP address..to set the Wlan first by choosing the static Ip ..and complete the ip ..sub net mask ..and default gateway ..just like in the TCP/ip protocol when you set the computer directly ..
If your provider have your initial computer's Mac address..(most have this protection on static IP addresses..) than you have to clone the mac of the router with the MAC of the computer that you made the setting with ..(I believe you call it AC ..probably from admin computer ) ..in such way your router will be seen on the network like it will be the initial computer with the initial LAN card that is registered to the provider..
in case of a non static one ...choose to obtain the IP addresses autobatically ..and clone the Mac with the AP one only if the provider requires for to recognize the right client ..if not ..it is not necessary ,,
IN case you have a DSL modem..things became more complicated cause even if the connection is like in the non static IP ..and its made auto ..you will have to change the IP of the router ..and so the ranges that will operate in ..order to provide Ip'es for the ports ..cause ...the router and the modem usually have the same IP address from factory ..and it will be a conflict ..and will not connect ..
so with a modem ..the Wlan will be ..the new IP address of the router ..the subnet mask ..255.255.255.0 and the modem became the default gateway ..and the servers are the same as was from the provider...
but when you will configure the ports ..the default gateway will be the router with the new IP ..the subnet masc will have 1 in the tail and the servers will be the modem IP ..
anyway I dont think is the case..cause I thing you have a optical cable connection ..but just in case..to have an idea..
so ..once the internet connection made...make the settings in the AC unit ..and connect it via one port to be sure you have internet connection ..yu can even try to connect it with the automatic IP in the TCP/IP protocol ..cause at this point the router should provide and IP and the rest of teh configuration ..but if you see something is not working ..choose user defined..and correct them manually ..
put the IP ..with one value in the tail more than the one of the router ..and the default gateway the IP of the router ..this for the first port ..and so on ..the next one will be with 2 units more in the tail digit ..ex..
router IP (in our case will be the default gateway too )
the first port IP will be ...
and so on ..
the sub-net mask will be the same 255.255.255.0 cause it is a closed network ..
and the dns will be the ones that you used on direct connect ..or if you have a modem ..insert the modem's IP address..
after you did the connection on the lan ports ..go to wireless, and enable it ..and choose a middle channel from the 12 available ..than give it a name to recognize it in the network ..and it is enough to make a WEP encryption to insert a 13 characters password..cause only in a range of 100 m will be able to connect on your router ..and if you live on a house ..I dont think you need any protection cause most of them will be out of range ..
and a password is enough for the rest ..cause I don't think any hacker will get under your window to crack your network ..If you leave it without password..even if anyone connects to the network ..this will not affect your performance ..cause it is a parallel regime
In conclusion do not complicate things without a use..
another thing ..usually only one kinda protection will work at the time ..if you want to make them selected by the Mac address.its fine ..remove the password and make the access by selected and preset MAC addresses....but remember a mac address is much easier to clone ..(with a simple program free on internet or from the driver ) than a password of 13 characters to crack ..and if someone ever gets one of your mac addresses ..can easy connect ..but I dont think that a password..even simpler will be that easy to break ..specially cause the number of people with potential access is limited with the ones living in a 100 m area..

you must plug the WL-330gE into a device that has both a wireless connection and an active ethernet port. If the ethrnet port is active you should see two small lights on either side of the ethernet port on your device after the .WL-330gE is plugged in Once that's done you can run the detection software and it should find the device. Select configure and a browser will open and you'll be taken to the ASUS configuration website. Log in using the user name and password in the startup guide. If the configuration page opens up in diff language, select the drop down at the upper right corner of the screen and pick the first item in the list which is English. Select the tab which matches the configuration you need and follow the instructions.
