    WRE54G firmware 1.04 vs 1.06 - missing MAC manual entry

    After upgrading to v1.06 I cannot manually enter the MAC address.

    v1.04 included:
    ACCESS POINT MAC ADDRESS 00:00:00:00:00 This is the remote access point's WLAN MAC address

    v1.06 only shows:
    Link Status ----------

    I need to manually configure this POS and cannot find an archieve of v1.04.

    Can anyone help.

    Thanks,

    (EDIT: WRE54G Version 1)

    There is no known 3rd party firmware for the WRE54G. did you try resetting the expander once you upgraded the firmware??

    Sorry for the confusion again,

    The only way I could get my WRE54G to work with my WRT54G runing dd-wrt v23 sp1 was to degrade the WRE54G firmware to v1.04.17 which allows for manual entry of the MAC address of the WDS node.

    The older firmware can be found at:

    ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/

    just look for:

    WRE54G_1.04.17-hdr.zip

    I configure my nodes with different SSIDs which was not possible using the WRE54G with upgraded firmware.
