Not enough information la bro to help you out, maybe you can give your network structure.

I'm giving this a try, not sure if this will help because I'm not from TP link and don't know how the product works. My guess is that you are only extending the range for access by PCs or notebook wirelessly and not the MIO setup box. So I'm guessing your setup is something like this:-

Phone Outlet>---Modem/Router>-----MIO setup box

and the WA701ND is somewhere in the middle..

Since you have already set-up the device as a "Repeater", I will assume that you have access to the control panel on the 701, have you input the MAC address of the Singtel router and also do a search of the Singtel SSID? If all fails, try changing it to the "Universal Repeater" mode.
