Turning my Buffalo Airstation into a Repeater

Recently my ISP sent me a new modem when I upgraded my wireless plan, and it happened to be a modem/wifi router combo unit: an Ubee U10C022. Before that I was using a Buffalo WHR-HP-G54.

I was under the impression, based on the box, that I'd be able to use the Buffalo as a repeater natively. However, it does this through WDS, and either that isn't compatible with my Ubee, or I did something wrong. Actually, I know I did something wrong because I can no longer connect to the Ubee wirelessly (although ethernet cables still work).

So my questions:

1) How do I troubleshoot my wireless connection to the Ubee?

2) Can my Ubee and Buffalo communicate natively, without having to flash any firmware?

3) If I do have to flash the Buffalo's firmware, would you reccomend Tomato or DD-WRT to someone who's never attempted this before?

Thanks I advance!
