Extend Network Using DLink DSL G604T 2000AP+

Following on from a previous post I have now obtained the neccessary hardware but can`t get set up.

My setup:

BT Home Hub connected to BT Socket

Connected to the BT Home Hub via Ethernet is a DLink DSL G604T DHCP disabled and set up as an AP providing wireless coverage using WPA Encryption, this Network is called Jambonet, there is another wireless network sent out by the BTHomeHub but I do not use this as it only allows WEP.

Three PC`s connect to this Wireless Network OK, what I would like to do now is extend my wireless coverage to my garage to do this I have bought a DLink 2000AP+ and a DES1005 Switch. It is my intention to use the 2000AP+ as a Wireless Client attached to the DES1005 Switch and connect to the DSLG604T Jambonet

How do I get the 2000AP+ to talk to the DSL G604T AP?? Ihave tried everything I can.

Using my Laptop to configure the 2000AP+ I can access it by forcing the LAN adaptor TCP/IP to use a static IP
The 2000AP+ uses a managament IP Address of

I have disabled encryption on the DSLG604T to simplify getting a connection and have set the 2000AP+ to Wireless Client.
When in ADvanced settings if I do a site survey it finds both Wireless Networks but when I select Jambonet it inserts the MAC address of the G604T. I then exit and reset the LAN TCP/IP to use auto IP and I get the "This network has limited or no connectivity message, with an yellow and black exclamation mark.

What do I need to do is it an IP adress issue??

The BT Home Hub is allocating IP`s to my network its IP is Subnet Mask

My main PC is allocated IP for instance.

There doesn`t seem to be much info on doing this ??

Thanks in advance
