OK, I have my Linksys
WRT54G v1.1 router set to repeater mode. I have added a Virtual AP and
everything works fine. It gets an IP form from the router across the street.
But the instead I enable MAC Cloning it drops the WAN IP. What is wrong with
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. goodluck!

1.) disconnect your internet cable
2.) connect your router to your computer
3.) in internet explorer type 192.168.1.1
4.) enter your username and password
5.) click on Lan
6.) In the ip address box change your router ip to a new ip
7.) Click on DHCP AND ENABLE THE DHCP SERVER
8.) Click on wan
9.) In Wan settings choose static ip address
10.) set the static ipaddress to the ipaddress you entered for your router
11.) set your subnet mask
12.) In the isp gateway enter your modem ip e.g 192.168.0.1
13.) as your primary dns enter your modem ip e,g 192.168.0.1
14 save changes and exit
YOU CAN HAVE THE ROUTER AUTOMATICALLY ASSIGN AN IP ADDRESS TO EACH SYSTEM OR YOU CAN SET IT AUTOMATICALLY
FOR AUTOMATIC ASSIGN JUST CONNECT THE CABKLE
FOR STATIC IP(recommended)
double click on the network icon to the buttom of your screen e.g LOCAL AREA CONNECTION
Click on Properties
Double Click on Internet Protocol(TCP/IP)
Enter the ip address you want the computer to have using the same 3 bloacks as your router e.g 192.168.1.10
Enter your sub net mask
Enter the ip for your moden in defaul gateway e.g 192.168.1.1
Enter the Prefered Dns as also your Modem ip 192.268.1.1

You will need to change the dafault ip of one of the device.
Connect using a calbe lan first browse the ip 192.168.1.1
then change one of the device 192.168.1.2
Then set one as (ap repeater) access point router..
ok try this
A dark "DOS" windows will appear
At the prompt, type: ipconfig
Note the "IP Address" (probably 192.168.1.2)
type: ipconfig /renew
Note the IP Address
If it has changed, then you are ok. Type: exit and press [ENTER]
If it did not change, then try this on the other computer.
If that didn't change either, the go to the Control Panel
Find the wireless or wired network adapter and Right-Click
In the Properties window, double-click "IP Address"
See the IP Address assigned? change the last digit by one number.
Example: if the IP Address is 192.168.1.2 then change to 192.168.1.3
First of all contact your isp and get your connection settings. If you are able to setup the router using the cd provided then good. If you are still having problems then go ahead and contact linksys (remember linksys charges for the support). I suggest get a technician to assist you in setting up.
First change your LAN ip range on WRT54g, leave the wan interface as dynamic IP client. Connect your WAN port to the DSL router interface. ping your DSL router interface (most probably your DSL router will be having 192.168.1.1). Make sure that your laptop is not assigned with any static IP (Incase you use the laptop in home n work).
Are you trying to setup both access point to repeat the signal of the router?
The correct way to setup the AP's as repeater is to access the setup page of your router go to status and go to the wireless subtab, check what is the MAC address that is what your suppose to configure on the AP's not the LAN MAC address which is on the local networks subtab on status.
Access the setup page of the AP's and go to AP Mode, make sure that you choose the repeater and copy down the Wireless MAC address you obtained from the wireless router. To enable roaming, meaning your wireless computer/device will connect to the AP/router closest to its location, change the wireless channel on all three device for example WRT54G will be on channel 1, 1st AP as repeater on Channel 6 and the last AP to Channel 11 but the other settings must be the same(Wireless name(SSID) and Wireless Security).
Note: Setting up an AP as repeater to repeat or extend the signal of another AP that is set to repeater is not recommended since the signal will deteriorate due to the number of hops the packets will be sent.
Hope this will help you setting up those WAP's which for me is quite useful since you can set it up to act as a repeater, AP client and a bridge to a WRT54G router.
Requirements for WAP54G & WRT54G Repeater Mode function:
* WRT54G: Firmware 2.02.2 or higher
* WAP54G: Firmware 2.06 or higher
Go to http://www.linksys.com/download to download the latest firmware upgrades for both devices.
Accessing the Router?s Setup Page:
Open a Web Browser (either Internet Explorer or Netscape).
1. Type the IP Address of the Router into the Address Bar (192.168.1.1 is the default IP Address).
2. Click GO or press the [Enter] key.
The User Name and Password prompt will appear.
1. Leave the User Name field blank.
2. Type admin in for the Password (the default Password).
3. Click OK or press the Enter key.
The Router?s Setup page will open:
* Click on the Status Tab.
* Click on the Wireless sub tab.
Write down the Wireless MAC Address and the Channel number values located on this page. If the Encryption Function is Disabled, go to the WAP54G Repeater Setup section below.
If Encryption Function is Enabled:
Note: WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is not yet compatible with wireless repeater mode. You must use WEP Encryption if you wish to use security options with this configuration.
To gather WEP encryption information, click on the upper Wireless tab, then the Wireless Security sub tab. Write down the Passphrase.
WAP54G Repeater Setup
Be sure that you have the WAP54G plugged directly into one of the WRT54G?s numbered ports for the duration of the setup.
Accessing the WAP54G?s Setup Page:
Open a Web Browser (either Internet Explorer or Netscape).
1. Type the IP Address of the WAP54G into the Address Bar (192.168.1.245 is the default IP address).
2. Click GO or press the Enter key.
3. The User Name and Password prompt will appear.
4. Leave the User Name blank.
5. Type in admin for the Password (the default password).
6. Click OK or press the [Enter] key.
The WAP54G?s Setup page will open.
1. Set the Channel value to the same channel as the WRT54G router that was obtained from earlier steps.
2. If WEP encryption was enabled on the WRT54G:
* Select Enable for the Wireless Security option.
* Click on the Edit Security Settings button and enter the same Passphrase as the one of the WRT54G router that you recorded. Click Generate to populate the WEP key fields.
* Click Save Settings to save your changes and close the encryption window.
Click Save Settings to save your changes on the Setup page.
3. Next, click on the AP Mode tab.
* Select the Wireless Repeater option.
* Enter the WIRELESS Mac Address from the WRT54G that you recorded. (Disregard the fact that the page asks to ?Enter the LAN MAC ADDRESS?).
Click Save Settings to save your changes. Close your web browser.
You can now place the WAP54G Access Point in another nearby location (with its power adapter plugged in) so that it can repeat the wireless signal that it receives from the WRT54G.
* The ?SSID? of the WAP54G does not have to be the same as the WRT54G. This can be used for initial configuration; using a different SSID will enable testing of network connectivity, and will show that the WRT54G is associated with the WAP54G.
* If MAC Filtering is configured on the WRT54G, no extra configuration is needed. Wireless clients will still need to be added the MAC Filter list of the WRT54G, but the WAP54G does not have to on the list.
