Cannot get repeater to work

I have Pepwave Surf On the Go and I have set it up in the past as a repeater without a problem. I did a hard reset (paperclip) and tried once more with the only change being the selection of the wireless network from the refresh list (the strongest signal), entered the encryption key for the selected SSID, and then clicking on “configure automatically” followed by a save.

The Dashboard page shows WiFi being scanned but no signal acquired. Any ideas?
