    I have tried extending the range of the WRV54G, using an indoor 7dBi omnidirectional antenna in the first place. This helped covering some spots, but not the toughest one.
    I therefore tried using a WAP54G, untill I thought to understand that this one could not be used for repeating the WRV54G signal, according to some document.
    Are there any workarounds, if this would be true? (such as appropriate firmwares?) I am using the latest official ones from linksys BTW.
    In case it would be better to use other equipment/other configurations: it would be nice to read about your ideas/experience.
    For clearness sake: the toughest point is about 20m away frow the router, with several walls in between.
    Many thanks in advance.

    The WRV54G doesn't support WDS so no wireless repeating.

    Your choices are either to replace it with a router which does, such as the new WRV200, or have a wired connection to an AP located near to the problem area.
