The actual max distance of the range expander is about 50 feet, and sorry to say but it cannot bounce the wireless signal from it on a wall....

When I connect my Linksys WRE54G to PC with lan cable. Always get the message "Site survey fail"


> Site Survey fail

It's your wireless adapter that is "sniffing" for available Wireless Networks, and is finding NO networks.

Disable your wireless adapter, and connect the Ethernet cable, to exclusively use the "wired" connection.

Hi, I just got Linksys WRE54G V.3 and was trying to install the CD. But I keep getting "Site Survey fail" message. My house is using a router made by Apple, and does not have extra space to...


The range expander helps to extend the range of wireless network...
Anyhow the range expander has to be placed withing the range of your Apple "wireless" router (Make sure your apple router is wireless router, if it is a wired router, then there is no use of range expander...! U need to buy an Access Point instead)...
your range expander must be connected to the computer(using an ethernet cable) from which you are trying to configure...
Site survey searches for the available wireless networks in range...
It should show your existing wireless network...
You need to select your appropriate network and you need to configure the Range expander wireless settings according to the Apple router's wireless settings...
exactly the same SSID(Network name), Security type and encryption technique, password PSK (security key) has to be selected on your range expander as in the APPLE wireless router...
Thats it...
You are done...
Your wireless network range would have extended now....

Cannot access Wireless-G Range Expander (WRE54G) from my PC using the IP address 192.168.1.240. I have tried to reset the expander multiple times and still not able to access.


If you're connected to the expander then go start-run type "cmd" and hit enter, then in the black box that opens up type "ipconfig" and hit enter, the line that says default gateway will be the IP address of the expander.
Otherwise there should have been a cd with it that has a utility that scans the network looking for it, I know netgear do one but I'm not sure about Linksys. Let me know how you get on.

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.

Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander WRE54G does not work


Yes you can call Linksys about it if it is under warranty. Warranty is 3 years. Most likely just a configuration problem. Just give Linksys a call and they should be able to get you up and running

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.

Before you plug it in the wall, insert the installation disc and go through their tutorial. When you do that you'll plug in your range expander, press the auto configuration button on the side and wait for both lights to turn up blue. Then you can unplug the range expander and put it else where.
