Ok, what you need to do is reset your Linksy wireless connector box, hold button for 30sec. After, you need to try to connent it to your phone and or computer. Try to see if you have a connection.

You need to buy a Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander to boost the signal
  • Move your wireless router to a central location in your network, keeping in mind that the router should be at waist level at the very least, not on the ground.

  • Plug in the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander in the room where your wireless router is. You'll move the range expander later, but for setup purposes, it should be in the same location as your wireless router.
  • Press the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander's "Auto Configuration" button for five seconds, which will allow the range expander to detect your wireless network and configure itself with the appropriate settings.
  • Unplug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander and relocate it to a location closer to the Xbox 360.
  • Ensure that the antenna for the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander is pointing upward, and keep in mind that the higher the range expander is placed, the better performance you will get out of it.
  • Plug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander back in, and your wireless network should have a much greater range, ensuring that your Xbox 360 is able to maintain a good connection to the network.

    I need to know that what type of router u r using.

    If it is Linksys router just follow these steps,

    with the help of the Ethernet cable connect the range expander to any one of the 4 ports in the router...

    ur computer shuld be directly hook up to the router..

    open internet explorer in ur computer..in the address bar type in 192.168.1.240(ip address of the range expander)

    it will prompt for a username and password...leave the user name blank and the password will be admin.

    u can see the linksys range expander set up page...

    u can find SSID at the bottom of the page...

    ur router's SSID and the range expander's SSID should be same..and also the password should be same..

    If the ssid or password mismatch between the router and range expander u can find these kind of Error messages...

    Good Luck....try it and revert back

    Wireless G ranges expander


    when using the range extender you have to make sure you set the SSID, channel & wireless key in the range extender the exact same as the router also it has to be in the same IP range so if the router IP address is 192.168.0.1 the range extender IP address has to change from 192.168.1.240 to 192.168.0.240. once that is done restart the range extender and disconnect the ethernet cable & it the 2 lights should light up blue.

    Linksys Range Expander...


    Hi,

    Initially, it is possible that the WRE54G has not been configured to talk with WiFi AP/Router downstairs and all that is needed is to configure/set it up.

    Setup (to be done in the same room where your WiFi AP/Router is installed and preferably with your daughter's laptop which can already connect to your network when it is near):
    1. Download the LinkSys WRE54G Setup Wizard from the LinkSys site;
    2. Use a LAN cable connection to the WRE54G Ehternet port (located underneath a flip lid in front panel) to one of your daughter's laptop;
    3. Power up the LinkSys Expander;
    4. Press the Range Expander’s Auto Configuration button for about five seconds. Normally this should be sufficient for the Expander to auto-detect and auto-configure itself;
    5. Power off;
    6. Move the Expander to your intended place of installation;
    7. Again using your daughter's laptop, expand/install the downloaded LinkSys Setup Wizard. Soon as the program is running, follow the on screen instructions. Please don't forget to Save before exiting.
    8. Move your daughter's laptop to its intended location and try the system.

    Should you still need a User's Guide, it is available here.

    Another possibility that we cannot discount is that the WRE54G is also not reaching your router downstairs. Perhaps what can be done is installing it not a floor down from your daughter's but halfway between your daughter's floor and your office downstairs.

    Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.
