I wanted to add the WRE54G to give my computer a stonger signal (thus higher data speeds). Unfortunatly when I added the extender my signal was stronger (went from low to excellent) but the data throughoutput was less. I went from a high of 6 Mbps to 1.5 Mbps. This was setup without encryption and with the latest firmware from Linksys on the extender and my router (WRT54GS). Has anyone else experience these problems? Has anyone found a solution?
