    I have bought a WRV54G and a WRE54G to extend my wireless range. The range gets extended thus the two machines can see each other but the IP traffic is not coming through. The router cannot ping the extender and when my laptop is active it can only ping the extender. Can anyone tell me how to solve this problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    The WRV54G is not a listed device that will Linksys has stated will work with the WRE54G only the WRT54G, WRT54GS and the WAP54G with the appropriate firmware on the Router/Access Point. Some people have reported that the WRE54G will work with the WAG54G, when it has the latest firmware.

    OK! That's just great. This is the only range extender that LinkSys offers. How can I ever extend the range of my WRV54G in this way?

    Kind regards,

    You may use a WAP54g with the repeater function (and latest firmware to use the WPA)...
    I am not sure of the WRV54G compatibility, can someone verify ?

    Nope the WAP54G can't be used as a repeater with the WRV54G.
