Default Re: linksys range extender WRE54G problems!

I just got one of these things, the utility that comes on the CD is a
waste of space. Here's how I got it working after an hour of frustration

1) Disable WEP on the router
2) Hit the autoconfigure button for about 10 seconds (you might need to
reset to factory defaults if you've been playing around)
3) Go to 192.168.1.240 , the web interface should appear password is admin
4) Upgrade the firmware (I couldn't get the thing working with the box as
shipped. I found I had a V1 of the extender and you'll see there are
firmware updates on linksys.com
5) with the latest firmware enable WEP on the extender and any other
settings you need
6) re-enable WEP on the router.

I've found it now works great.
