    Has anyone set up a WAG54G & WRE54G together as I am having some problems.
    It seems to stop working after a few hours and needs to be switched on and off to start working againg.
    I am running
    1.02.7 on the WAG
    1.05.08 on the WRE.
    WEP 128
    Both units have different SSIDs
    Any help would be great.

    The WAG54G is not a supported device for the WRE54G. Are you using the version for EU? The latest version in the US is 1.04.17.

    other posts show users have setup the two units together.
    WRE has factory firmware no updates available
    WAG us UK latest too updated from factory version and has settins for WDS.

    Usually you use the same SSID for the WRE54G as the the access point. Do you have SSID enabled?

    Yes they both have ssid enabled and now changed to the same but still not working. The WAG seems to keep dropping the wireless settings and can only connect to the WRE but no get an IP!!!!

    This exact config works for me. Both need to have the same SSID, WEP key and should use the same channel. Does your connection work when you switch off the WRE?

    WRE54G and WAG54G

    Firmware 1.02.9 Dec 22 2004 has WDS settings (Wireless --> WDS settings --> enable) This solved the problem for me.

    Success
