    Hello,
    Thank you for your reply. I will answer your questions. According to your previous e-mail,
    I need to set up wireless channel same (11) on both WAP54G Access Point and Repeater.
    But the problem here is: I can set up wireless channel to 11 at Access Point WAP54G
    But unfortunately, I cannot set up wireless channel on Repeater other then 6. It only
    accepts channel number 6 on repeater. I am using firmware v.2.08 for European
    versions of WAP54G. I tried v.3.04(I guess it is US version), in that version of firmware
    it accepts to change the channel number on repeater other then 6. But problem in
    that version is: repeater does not function(communicate) with other WAP54G
    Access Point which is connected to router. My question is: on both WAP54G
    (Access Point and Repeater) should they both have same channel number or could
    it be different ? So for the time being WEP is not working, so I cancelled it now
    I am using Wireless MAC Filter as you suggested it and it works fine now but no WEP.
    I prefer to have WEP though. I also cannot enter the setup page of WAP54G wirelessly
    when I am in another room, but when I am next to it I can enter the setup page of
    WAP54G Repeater.
    Now the answer for other part of the strange problem about MAC addresses problem for
    WAP54Gs:
    1. Repeater WAP54G–EU (European Version) Firmware v.2.08 for European versions:

    - LAN MAC Address : 00:90:4c:60:04:00
    - Wireless MAC Address : 00:90:4C:60:04:00

    - MAC Address of Repeater underneath hardware : 001217702709
    ( I double check, and also on the box of WAP54G, above MAC Address is written.)


    2. Access Point WAP54G-EU (European Version) Firmware v.2.08 for European versions:

    - LAN MAC Address : 00:90:4c:60:04:00
    - Wireless MAC Address : 00:90:4C:60:04:00

    - MAC Address of Access Point underneath hardware : 00121760B933
    ( I double check, and also on the box of WAP54G, MAC Address 00121760B933 is written.)

    Before I bought the new WAP54G as a Repeater last week, I tried to setup my old WAP54G as a repeater
    with my wireless router WAG54G, but I was not successful at it because as you said it WAG54G and
    WAP54G cannot communicate wirelessly. In order to do that I upgraded WAP54G’s factory set firmware
    To v.3.04 (I believe it is a USA version), I dowloaded that from Linksys(US) website. Next day, I bought
    New WAP54G to use as a repeater with my old WAP54G. So when I checked on setup page of new
    WAP54G, it’s MAC Address was same as the one underneath the hardware. But after I upgraded its
    Firmware to v.3.04, and when the repeater did not work as a repeater, I upgraded again its firmware to
    European version of firmware 2.08. After this, both WAP54Gs’ MAC Addressesd changed from what
    its’ underneath hardware.
    My question is: is there anyway, I can go back to its factory set firmware of WAP54G ? I already tried
    What you described hard reset many times, and also factory default setting on setup page.
    When I enter on setup of Wireless Repeater Remote Access Point's wrong LAN MAC Address:
    (00:90:4c:60:04:00). Repeater stil Works, but it is wrong MAC Address. How can I solve this problem ?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks alot,
    Tolga Ozsahin
