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....

Dear I did everything mentioned above but still light is red


Hi Friend, In this case I would recommend you to please reset the range expander once again and connect the range expander with the ethernet cable once again. Match the settings of the router to the range expander I mean while configuring the range expander, the wireless network name and the wireless key should be same and the channel should be same and the security type should be same.
If it still doesn't work then I would recommend you to please try to change the channel to 1 or 9 or 11

Site survey failed


Hello,

You can connect your expander to your PC via ethernet cable and then assign a static IP address on your PC.

To assign a static IP address, just double-click on the monitor icon on the lower right hand corner of your PC and then view status and go to properties. Look for TCP/IP v4 and click properties.

Select use the following IP address:

192.168.1.2
255.255.255.0

and then click OK.

After successfully assigning an IP address to your PC, let's test the connectivity by going to command prompt.

Go to Start>Run>and then type cmd and hit Enter.
Once you're on the black screen type ping 192.168.1.240.
If you get replies then your good to go...

Let's now access the Web UI of the you Wireless expander.
Open a browser and then type on the address bar 192.168.1.240 and then hit enter.

It will prompt you with WRE54G's username and password. Just type the password to login to the Web UI. The default password is admin.

Once your on the Setup page, you have to configure your settings exactly the same as your wireless router (e.g. wireless security, IP address range) except for the SSID. You may want to change the SSID on your WRE54G for you to easily identify where your wireless computer is connected.

You can leave the WRE54G's IP address to 192.168.1.240 if your wireless router's IP address is on the same range like 192.168.1.x

Then on the Gateway address type your router's IP address. If you're also using Linksys the default IP address usually is 192.168.1.1

Then you can configure your wireless settings same as your router. After that, same the settings and see if the light on the WRE54G becomes BLUE. If yes, then you're good to go! You can unplug the PC from the WRE54G and then set your PC's IP address back to Obtain an IP Address Automatically. See static IP address procedure above.

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.
