    Hi all!

    does anyone have experienced problems when connecting two wap54gpe devices, one as AP and one as repeater?
    it seems that we experience random pachet loss...

    yes having the same problems. I Have a call scheduled from a senior tech at linksys to address this hopefully.

    Does it do this about once a day, and then a reboot of the main AP fixes it?

    If so, having exact same problem

    what kind of security do you have? we've 4 wap54g, one in AP mode and the other 3 in repeater mode, with the last firmware runs fine (WEP). But WPA doesn't run well...

    We turned off encryption all together to test, makes no diff

    Take my advice, stay away from the wap54gpe, they are total junk. They leak water after a few weeks, the lan connectors corrode. Not only that, these things suffer horrible problems with packet loss, and need rebooted quite often.... If you want to be a guinny pig, go ahead, but be forwarned.

    We are trying to get our money back on the 7 we have now, 2 of them already died on us, and the rest function terribly.
