    I dont think that I will ever get this thing working, can you guys think of anything else I can use to expand my wireless network? Even if it is another brand of expander I can use that as well. Any recommendations?

    "I have had the worst time trying to setup a wireless range expander. I can not get the red light to go off at all. I have exchanged out the range expander 2 times already, I am going to exchange another today. I have spent a total of 5 hours on the phone talking to the sorry Linksys Tech support. That had me doing the same thing for about 4 hours. I have tried all different kinds of firmware. I am at a point now that I do not know what else to do. I have joined this forum in hopes that my nightmare will be solved. My routers are WRT54G and the wrt54gs. I have even place all of the antennas of the routers and range expander within centimeters of each other and yet they still cant find the range expander. Please help I am almost at the point of tears now. "

    From reading that post... I would say he has two routers... a WRT54G & WRT54GS

    I had trouble setting mine up as well. Make sure your trying to set it up on the computer with the wireless card in it. Also I had to reset the expander a couple of times to get my to work. When your setting it up make sure that you have WEP disabled on your router as well as MAC Filtering and have it set on Channel 6 for your intial setup, you can change everything after.
