Leave the wireless router settings unsecured then place the range expander as near as possible to the router. press autoconfig buttons and observe the lights...

I have two netgear routers wgr614v7 and wgr614v10. how can i use one of the as a repeater?? wgr614v7 does not have wireless repeating function..

Most routers (Wireless-G) have about the same range. However, the actual range in real-time environment is much less. I think that your network would work fine if you place the router at a suitable location i.e. at the central location/ height. Also, based on my on-site experience, I suggest that you may relocate the router to another location depending upon your network environment. It has always helped me a great deal. Placing the router avoiding obstacles such as concrete pillars, walls, steel cabinets etc in the signal path have remarkable effect on range and overall performance of the network.
2. There are two ways to increase the range/ coverage area (i) Adding external antenna of appropriate type (ii) Installing additional Access Point (AP) connecting it with the existing AP wirelessly in line-of-sight (creating WDS) OR connecting the two APs with wire, which is a better option as it provides robust and reliable connectivity between APs.
3. So, in short, to extend the range, it is recommended that you may place the additional router at an appropriate location as described above and connect it to the existing router through wire (CAT-6 Cable). (The router would communicate through wire and the range of your networ would extended up to the placement/ location of the additional router. Rename the additional access point for easy identification and make it secure.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I have a clearwire modem. I have to locate it 80 ft from my two home desktops and laptop. i need to know how to best do this. i have an e2000 router that i was hoping to use a wre54g range extender...

The Linksys E2000 router is N series router and the WRE54G is G range expander.
WRE54G is only computer with the WRT54G and WRT54GS routers.
You have E2000 router. I believe that router is capable of broadcasting the wireless signal upto 100 fts.
As Linksys says that router is capable of signal up 200 - 300 fts, but it is not.
You can try changing the wireless channel on the router to increase the signal.
Open the setup page of the router.
Go to wireless tab and change the configuration view to manual.
Try changing the channel to 11, 9, 6 ,1. See if that works.

I have wireless-G WRT54G2 V1...the signal coverage is weak. If it is more than about 5 m then the signal is lost. Any clue how to fix

the easiest solution is to buy a wireless expander.
this will expand the range of your current router.

however before buying check the following:
your router is not near wireless land telephones, near a tv, or near any other obstacles that could block the signal.
try to put your router somewhere high.

I have a THOMSON ST585v6sl with AOL running off

Well it may be possible, only if your wireless router supports WDS. Also, note that in DG834Gv3 , v4, v5 supports WDS. If you have v2 or v1 then it wont connet wirelss with your existing network.

Please reply if your existing wireless router has WDS and the version of the NETGEAR router so that I will provide you with the required steps to make it work wireless.

if you already have a wireless setup the latop (if it has wireless) will pick up the wireless router (if security on the wireless network, just type in the security password). Type into your browser to access the routers configuration page.

Choosing a stronger router

You can get this one its WRT300N this a router that uses the latest wireless N technology which means a wider range and faster speed but using this router in order for you ro use the wireless N technology you may need a wireless N adapter also on your computers.
But if you want since you already have a existing wireless network juts get a wireless range expander to repeat the signal of the router so it will reach your XBOX this is the model WRE54G.

Wireless - G router

If the Linksys is not yet configured use the desktop to put the CD in and follow instructions to add the Linksys Router to your existing network setup.

Once inside there are a few more steps to getting a desktop PC to see & network with a laptop PC within a router/wireless environment. Once the Linksys is setup you may want to repost something to get the computers talking to each other.

Take care...

Getting The WRE54G To Connect With The WRT54G

The WRT54G, WRT54GS, and WAP54G all must have the latest firmware versions available installed in order to connect with the WRE54G Wireless-G Range Expander. Here are the minimum firmware version requirements that you must meet: * WRT54G (all versions): at least firmware version 2.02.2 * WRT54GS: at least firmware version 2.07.1 * WAP54G (all versions) : at least firmware version 2.07 To Identify your WAP54G Version Number: To find out which version of the WAP54G you currently have, flip your Access Point over to look at its underside. Near the serial number label, near the Linksys© logo, you will see your model number and a possible version. Labels for the WAP54G version will look like one of the following: * WAP54G (no version means Version 1) * WAP54G ver. 1.1 * WAP54G v. 2 For WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 Users ONLY: (if you have a WAP54G Version 2, you may proceed with the 2.07 or later firmware upgrade) NOTE: Before upgrading the WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 models to firmware version 2.07 or later, make sure your Access Point?s current firmware is version 1.09.1 beforehand. The version 1.09.1 code performs an important OS upgrade for these versions of the Access Point -- it must be loaded before using later firmware.
