    Hello All,

    I have a Linksys WRTSL54GS Wireless Router connected to my cable internet provider , and mainly acting as an Access Point, since the internal DHCP of this router is disabled.

    I have a second Linksys WAP4400N Access Point , which I want to use as a repeater/amplifier to extend the range of my existing wireless network and get a better signal coverage. How would it work.?

    I just want to understand the settings I have to make on the Router or the Access Point or both to achieve this. Do i simply have to configure the same SSID and Wireless channel on the access point to match whatever is configured on my router.

    Any other specific parameters and details would be highly appreciated.

    The WAP4400N does not support repeater or bridge mode. You should have purchased a WAP54G access point which supports bridge, repeater, client and acess point mode with a limited number of older equiptment or a WRE54G repeater. The best you cna do is to use the WAP4440N as an access point by connecting a Ethernet cable of length less that 100 meters from one of the ports of your router to the Ethernet port of the WAP4400N
