How to fix problems with my range extender?

Specs: Windows 7
I just bought a range extender to give me a better signal in the new addition on my house. I got the extender all set up, and found out that it won't work with the router channel set on auto. So I have the router and extender set to the same channel right now. The extender shows up on my network map, but whenever I connect to it I get about 30 seconds of internet access before losing it. So what can I do to fix this?

More Info:
Extender- Hawking Technology HWREN1 Wireless-300N Range Extender
Router- Linksys WRT120N
The extender is setup in a spot where it gets a full signal from the router.

Look at the event viewer to see if there are any errors.

As an alternative, can't you run a cat5 cable to a switch in the new section? It would be so much more reliable.
