How to access setup page on WRE54G

    I recently acquired a WRE54G Wireless Extender version 1 and upgraded the firmware to version 1.05.06. I was able to connect it to my D-Link DI-524 router using the push-button method and the Extender works like a charm with a strong signal on the back porch where the router couldn't reach. Now I'd like to secure the network but I can't access the setup page on the WRE54G. The default IP of course doesn't work and none of the IPs llikely assigned by the router do either. The router shows the MAC address of the WRE54G as connected but doesn't show an IP for it. BTW, there's no ethernet port on a version 1 so I couldn't use a patch cable.

    Any ideas?

    Bill Guest worked for me. Be sure to manually set the IP address / subnet mask on your PC to something like / because the WRE does not contain a DHCP server. If the IP address in your PC is not on the subnet then the two will not be able to talk.
