Question about Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander (WRE54G)
When I connect to my Embarq wireless router directly, my computer works fine, but has a low signal. When I try to go through my Linksys wireless range expandeer and try to connect, it connects just fine with a very strong signal, but I frequently get a message that I am unable to acquire an IP address. I hit the repair button and I get the message that it is unable to acquire an IP address, that I should contact my network administrator. If I unplug the range expander, I can immediately connect up with my Embarq wireless router, but once again the signal is very low at the distance I am trying to use it at.
Hey i have a similar problem. i am pretty sure i have set up the ip add, channell, ssid and wep correctly but i still get the connected with limited connectivity message.
What do i put in the WLAN MAC field? i am thinking i put my routers mac in there but it has a 'clone mac' button that puts the mac of the laptop i am using.
Also do i need to do any set up on the actual router?
I have a d-link router and a sitecom wl-130 rang extender

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 18.104.22.168. Hope that helps.
