WRE54G Setup Woes

    I can't get this thing set up. I am pretty experienced with things like this, but no matter what I do, it doesn't work, and my "Link" light is always Red.

    Details of my network:

    Wired Router: BEFSR34, IP =, DHCP turned on
    Wireless AP: WRT54G, IP =, ESSID ="blah", DHCP turned off
    WRE54G: version 3, firmware v 3.something (1/12/2006)
    WEP is on

    So I couldn't use the auto setup thing. I connected it to a machine using an ethernet cable, and changed the machine's IP to Then I was able to go to, and change the settings. While my changes seemed to be accepted, Link is always Red.

    Please tell me what to enter for all the parameters on the screen (other than WEP, which is completely obvious)! I think I am doing it right, and I do claim to understand this kind of thing, but maybe not :smile:

    Is there anything else I should be looking at? I don't see a more recent firmware on the linksys site.

    Is there an issue in that my gateway and wireless access point are not the same IP, as they would be if I got rid of the BEFSR43 and just used the WRT54G?
