Yes there is a way to extend the range. it involves flashing a 3rd party firmware into your router. another way is to buy better antennas for it. radio shack has a pair for your router that are made by gigaware that will add 7dBi to your range. That is an easier solution. if your want to try flashing your router (my personal favorite way), then let me know and i will walk you through on how to do it. ; )

My router routes to my laptop within my house and

The possible cause is the router is not able to extend the signal to that range. Try using a range extender to boost your wireless signal. Signal strength depends on the router. So adding a range extender should solve this issue

Try to configure your new router and you have to reconfigure the Range extender to tally with the new router. The IP Address that the range extender should have should depend on the DHCP server of your router that provides the IP Address.

Linksys WRK54G versus WRT54G Firmware


The WRK54G is actually a stripped down version of the WRT54G that was bundled with a wireless network adapter and sold under the kit name WKPC54G.

From what you say in your question I gather that you have a WRT54G already in place as your access point, and it is what is connected to your WAN. To use the WRK54G as a range extender repeater you should do the following:

1. Turn off DHCP
2. Turn off NAT
3. Assign a fixed IP that is in your Class C Block
4. Define the WRT54G as the Gateway

With this configuration it now should function as an extender/repeater, and any clients connecting to it will be serviced by the DHCP on the master router.

I hope that this helps.
