Hello Everyone: I've just purchased a WRE54G (v 2) to extend my signal range coming off my WRT54G router (v 2 -- Firmware 4.20.6). After plugging the device in - I can't seem to get the thing to work properly, below is a list of everything I have done (in order). I should mention that all devices on my network use linksys wireless cards, which are all "G compatible". All help is appreciated, thanks! Dan PS. My router is setup as follows: SSID: << UNIQUE >> Encryption: None SSID Broadcast: ON MAC Filter: ON, PREMIT ONLY MACs IN LIST ** The MAC address of the WRE54G is in the list ** SSID Broadcst setting on WRE54G: OFF (Per Linksys advice) Wireless Channel: Auto Starting IP Address: 192.168.1.100 IP Address of my wireless PC: 192.168.1.103 IP Address of my WRE54G: 192.168.1.240 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Gateway IP Address: 192.168.1.1 ------ 1. Plugged in device, both lights are blue 2. Tried to configure the device with the disk that came with it. The thing always came up with the error similar to "Cannot find a WRE54G on your network, make sure it's plugged in..." 3. Tried to ping the WRE54G [ping 192.168.1.240] -- works fine 4. Opened the web-utility for the WRE54G, configured it with my UNIQUE SSID, left the device IP alone, setup the subnet mask, and set the IP address of my Gateway. 5. Saved my configuration. 6. Lights are still blue on the WRE54G 7. Go to my wireless PC (approx 15 ft from WRE54G; the WRE54G is approx 65 ft from the base station) 8. Look at the signal strength via the wireless icon in the taskbar (near the clock) (Windows XP SP2), it says "low" with a speed varying from 1 - 6 MBPS. This is what I had before I installed the WRE54G; except maybe the speed part, it would always stay 1 - 2 MBPS. I would think that after installing the WRE54G at least the signal strength would say "good" or "excellent", right? 9. Double click the wireless icon and open up the Windows XP Wireless Network list. I can see several other networks in my area, funny thing is, if I look at mine, I see that the signal strength is "good" or "excellent", but this is not reflected in the taskbar icon... Any ideas?
