I have a Linksys WRT54G which is set up to transmit the wireless signal but has the Sveasoft firmware. I was trying to to set up the WRE54G for my far away room but it isn't connecting at all. Even when I place it next to the router itself and press auto mode it doesn't work. It always shows me the link button as red. For some unfathomable reason the expander cant even be reset with the button and I cant update the software to the original Linksys firmware either. PLEASE HELP. Thanks to everyone who pitches in or even bothered looking in here.
