    I have a Linksys WAG54G European ISDN ADSL Router and I need to extend my wireless network to share my Internet broadband connection with my neighbour that lives like 10 meters from here but with 2 walls, so I need to install a WAP54G in her house in repeater mode.

    There is another option of buying a Wireless range extender WRE54G, but its more expensive than a WAP54G, so I prefer the WAP54G.

    I need to know what's the best firmware for WAP54G in repeater mode, the wireless network is using WEP encription and MAC filtering. I need something stable and that powers the antennas of the WAP54G to the maximum so I will cover all her house at 100% signal level.

    I would recomment the latest version Linksys Firmware for the WAP54G, which is version 2.08. Use the EU verison, which has a May 13, 2994 date. If you want top wait for Avenger to release his firmware HyperWAP, that verison will enable to increase power output. Increasing the power also increases the noise output and possible interference with nearby wireless networks, so you should only increase power output till you get a stable connection. The latest version is based on Linksys firmware 2.07, which is not the latest Linksys version. Avenger has promised to release a new version shortly. Sveasoft software has Freya, which is also based on a earlier version of the Linksys firmware. When doing a firmware update, do it from a wired ethernet connection and reset the WAP54G before doing the firmware update.

    Ok, thanks. Well I'm going to buy a WAP54G V2 used and it has Mustdie firmware, is it good ? In your opinion, for a power user, coz I'm IT engineer, Mustdie is the best or other firmware fits better in WAP54G for repeat signal from a Linksys WAG54G ADSL Router ?
