Extending the reach of youir wireless internet


To significantly increase your Wi-Fi coverage (often by up to 40 percent) is to add a wireless repeater or range extender. You should place this repeater at the outer (but good) range of your existing router's coverage and it should repeat the network signals between the existing router and any Wi-Fi computers and devices that wirelessly connect to the repeater.

Netgear ext


Once the range extender is in "discover" mode it will find your existing wireless network. It will then take the name of it and add '_ext' to it. giving you a second wireless network. For instance, if your wireless network was called my-house, the extender would create one called my-house_ext.

Is the router set to allow extension of the network?

Is there MAC address filtering set up on the router?

Are you certain that you are connecting to the correct router? To be sure, change the SSID to something unique and not the default of "linksys".

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...

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....

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 purchased a wre54g range expander and have tried everything but it doesnt work


Who is the manufacturer of your wireless router?
check the IP address of your router.
connect the computer to the router and check the Ip address of the computer and the default gateway number. Default gateway is the IP address of your router. suppose the default gateway is 192.168.1.1. then open the set up page of the router . check the wireless settings of the router SSID ,channel and the security settings. Do not change the settings on the router.
If you are using WPA2 security settings them that will network on the WRE54G.
Now your range expander and the router IP addresses should be in the same range. Suppose you router IP address is 192.168.x.y and the IP address of the WRE54G is by default 192.168.1.240.
Now the x in the router IP address should be 1.
If it is, then connect the WRE to the router and open the set up page of WRE. change the wireless settigns on the WRE and power cycle the WRE and the router.
It should work
