    I,ve been trying to extend my wireless network without success. Many hours spent on the phone with the very helpful support team at Linksys.
    Finally told I need the WRT54G range expander Version 2 which (apparantly but unable to confirm) has an ethernet port. This is apparantly the only way I can setup a Linksys expander on my sympatico bell speedstream 6300 router wireless network.

    Pls can you confirm the Version 2 does in fact have an ethernet port and will this fix my problem.

    Any help would preserve my sanity.

    Many tks howardp6
    Very interesting, now I just have to figure out how buy one.
    My local store in Canada said they can only provide Version 1.

    Any idea why the setup disk doesn't support MAC? My struggles with Version 1 had to be performed on my PC.

    I hope Version 2 will actually work with my MAC Airport aireless system (after I set it up on the PC)

    Boy...this is a painful business.

    Thanks again for your help

    The set up disk is a waste of time, and so are their script reading tech support people in india. I found this article at Tom's hardware that walks you through a manual set up.
    Also make sure that you go to linksys and download the latest firmware for it.

    Good luck its not the easiest piece of hardware to get going.
