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 192.168.0.240. once that is done restart the range extender and disconnect the ethernet cable & it the 2 lights should light up blue.

You need to buy a Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander to boost the signal
  • Move your wireless router to a central location in your network, keeping in mind that the router should be at waist level at the very least, not on the ground.

  • Plug in the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander in the room where your wireless router is. You'll move the range expander later, but for setup purposes, it should be in the same location as your wireless router.
  • Press the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander's "Auto Configuration" button for five seconds, which will allow the range expander to detect your wireless network and configure itself with the appropriate settings.
  • Unplug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander and relocate it to a location closer to the Xbox 360.
  • Ensure that the antenna for the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander is pointing upward, and keep in mind that the higher the range expander is placed, the better performance you will get out of it.
  • Plug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander back in, and your wireless network should have a much greater range, ensuring that your Xbox 360 is able to maintain a good connection to the network.

    Hello
    This not a big deal for a wireless network to work on downstairs, you need to check your connection and settings of the routers/computers. or just put a repeater for improvement of signal strength.

    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

    Forgot password for my netgear range expander


    Reset it and reconfigure it. You need to know the configuration of your wireless router to make your range expander work again. Can you still connect to the Internet without the range expander?

    I just bought a Wireless G Range Expander and when I try to set it up, I continually get the "Site Survey Failed". What am I doing wrong?


    I believe your using a WRE54G, but which version? The latest version has ethernet port so you can connect it directly to a pc to set it up.
    Try to access the expander's set up page by typing its address of 192.168.1.240 and you will be able to configure it from there.

    Having Problem Acquiring IP Address


    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 19.168.0.240. Hope that helps.
