Did I buy the wrong Repeater Bridge for my Wireless Notebook? - Buffalo AirStation WLA-G54C)?

    From my manhattan hotel room, I can see many, many connections as
    available wireless networks, many of which are public access hotspots.
    I can log on periodically but the connections drops frequently due to
    distance. After reading an excellent review of the AirStation G54
    (WLA-G54C), I puchased one and tried configuring it while at home
    where I have 2 other computers on a wireless network.
    After configuring the AirStation via it's LAN IP address and sepping
    up WEP password, the instruction said I needed to reset and add the
    WEP password again. Well, I wasn't able to even connect to the
    AirStation's IP address again and called support. The tech was not
    able to get me connected again and in his frustration also mentioned
    that I had purchased the wrong product when I mentioned why I bought
    it. He said this Repeater Bridge required that I know the MAC address
    etc of any other networks I intended to connect to and instead, I
    should go and buy the Buffalo Ethernet Converter (WLI-TX1-G54) and he
    would also recommend purchasing their wireless card antenna
    (WLI-CV-G54a) and probably the PCCard as well as it may not work with
    my Orinoco card (recently purchased and accepts external antennas).
    I need advise so I do not buy another product that I do not need. I
    guess I need to return the Repeater Bridge?

    Thanks,
    Arawak
