Help with setting up PicoStation M2

I'm new to this forum. I just got a PicoStation M2. It's connected to my Linksys EA4200. The setup instructions in the manual that came with the device are neither clear nor extensive. I'm having lots of trouble just getting the device info plugged in properly so it will work.
What I'm hoping for this that the device will rebroadcast the signal from my router so I can pick it up on computers housed across the street.
Is that a clear, comprehensive outline on how to set up the PicoStation M2? I've looked on this website and have had no luck turning one up.
Any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Help with setting up PicoStation M2

What you are thinking is called WDS repeating, which is not a standard protocol and may or may not work between different radio manufactures.
Look here, wiki.ubnt.com/AirOS_Wireless_Repeater_Configuration

I thought PicoStation was supposed to connect to my router & boost the signal so I could get a connection 100 feet across the street. If not that, what?

Now I can't get do anything to change settings. The home page of the PicoStation won't display: Internet Explorer cannot display the web page. What now?
