Change the repeater/bridge into:
192.168.2.10 IP
192.168.2.100 GATEWAY
255.255.255.0

No need to set Custom DNS, as you will receive the DNS settings from the its gateway (192.168.2.100).

What is 192.168.2.1?
Router: TL-WR1043ND - Gargoyle 1.5.4

I was puzzled by a similar problem, gargoyle 1.9.1 firmware and WiFi repeater clients not being able to access the internet, same clients could access the internet directly, either via LAN or WiFi of the gargoyle router.
I worked around the problem by setting DHCP reservations for the hosts connecting via the repeater and then creating a white list for their IPs. Seems to have solved the issue, likely a problem with the firewall getting spooked by the repeater packet forwarding.
Would be curious to know if this is a bug or a feature.
