I set it to repeeter mode and did a site survey and nothing.I know this is not true for my pci card picks up many.any idea fo basic settings to repeet a conection to another router so I can conect my laptop?please point me to thread or something as I can find little info on this new version,make it simle if you can for I am fairly new at this.thankyou in advance.

    this would work great except that I cant make changes to the host router which is a open lynksys router set to default settings.brainslayer said that ver24 has a repeeter mode mode that can do it,but didnt give me any info.dont mind reading just need to find what to read.I set the wireless mode to repeeter but dont know what other settings to make.thanks for taking the time to answer.

    just do the following:
    1. set wl0 (primary interface) to repeater and provide the ssid you want to repeat
    2. disable ssid broadcast
    2. create a new virtual interface
    3. set the virtual interface to AP
    4. set the desired ssid for the virtual interface (doesn't need to be the ssid you want to repeat)

    NOTE: the repeater function of v24 is just a normal client mode (not client bridged)! so be sure to configure it correctly and it will work like a charm.
