    Hi there

    Any assistance greatly appreciated :confused:

    I have a Linksys WAG200G as my ADSL modem and as the wireless range is too short I need to extend to the other side of my house. I do have an ethernet cable running to where I would like to place the access point or signal extender.

    Can I add an access point on the end of the ethernet cable and what one is recommended? How do I configure?

    Any other options apart from replacing WAG200G unit? As always cost is a consideration. :biggrin:

    Thanks
    Wayne

    Hi,

    You can add a WRT 54GL which is cheap and powerful with DD-WRT firmware...

    Use it with an other local IP address (192.168.1.2 for example), an other wireless channel, but you can use the same SSID...
