I'm the first to admit i dont know a whole lot about the specifics of my router. I just know this is the one i have. The router works great, always has. I have several wired computers on it, and my dads wireless laptop. Recently i got a laptop, and im a little ways away from him on the property. My laptop will pickup wireless but its VERY weak. So today i bought a Linksys wireless range expander, model WRE54G. First thing i did was plug it in, and hit auto config. I noticed it goes all blue (active, working) and my wireless comes right up with excellent signal.....for about a minute and the expander starts searching for the signal again. Regarldess of wether it is right next to the router or with me. So upon some reading of the instructions (haha...) i see it says compatible with: (WRT54GS) Firmware ver. 2.07.1 or above. So i do what i think its right, and shoot to linksys.com. The only firmware update i found my router would actually install brought it to version 1.05.2. Since then i have been scouring sites such as yours trying to figure this out and trying to use third party firmware, etc. All i have done is confuse the shit out of myself and got nowhere. No other firmware will work, it always says "update are failed" or some junk. I'm confused, i just want my expander and my router to get along, any advice?
