    I haave a WRE54G working as an extender with my WRT54G/Tomato, however, it it not helping extend my network to where I want to go. So I put in a CAT-5 cable and wonder - can I use the WRE54G as a wireless access point? I tried plugging it into the LAN, gve it a different SSID and channel, but no luck.

    thanks

    Many extenders are just that...extenders...Check the Linksys web site and see what the specs are for the WRE54G. Those specs should let you know if you can use it as an AP.
