    Hi there.
    I've been trying unsuccessfully to use the WAP54G (V3) to repeat the signal of my WRT54G router (V7). The scenario I'm dealing with is as follows:
    In our apartment the wireless router covers about half the rooms. The lounge is not covered. I wish to connect a media PC which is located in the lounge wirelessly to our WLAN, and decided to buy the WAP54G. I've followed all the guides found on the internet, setting up the WAP with the correct MAC address, disabling DHCP, setting both SSIDs and security settings the same, but I'm having no luck at all.
    Can anyone help?

    Check chanel - they must work on the same chanel.
    If still this won't help - set different SSID on them. Then conect manualy to first and try to ping another device. The same with second one.
    Then You will get some answers what is wrong.
