    I know how to reset (clearly marked on side of expander) but I would like to know how to fix the problem of having to reset it, almost daily! It is getting somewhat frustrating. There are many devices on the network (3 that access through the WRE54G, others through the main router) could this be causing these problems??

Can my wre54g range expander work with a wireless N router


"Using a Range Expander is not recommended if you have a Linksys Wireless-N Router." This info was found at the bottom of this link under the note.
http://homekb.cisco.com/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?vw=1&docid=afe65b013aea4e1a92424e635a6aa619_17831.xml&pid=102&slnid=3
I found a list of router that it should work with. All the routers listed are G routers though.

You should check to see if you router model # is in this list.
Cisco owns Linksys FYI.
Hope this helps you. Even though it says that it is not recommended to use it if you can still try it to see if it works. You can always go back to the way things were.

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

Can't login 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.240 Above are the gateways of Linksys Range Expander WRE54G but can't login. Please advise.


Leave the router on. Press the reset button in on the back for 30 secs. Then unplug and press in again for 30secs. This will reset all settings to default and 192.168.1.1 will be the router IP. THe range expander needs to be reconfigured with the original disc. This can be found at www.linksys.com The expanders are offten tricky, mine kept changing the 3rd octet to 2. I.E 192.168.2.1 Might test that to see :)

Cannot access Wireless-G Range Expander (WRE54G) from my PC using the IP address 192.168.1.240. I have tried to reset the expander multiple times and still not able to access.


If you're connected to the expander then go start-run type "cmd" and hit enter, then in the black box that opens up type "ipconfig" and hit enter, the line that says default gateway will be the IP address of the expander.
Otherwise there should have been a cd with it that has a utility that scans the network looking for it, I know netgear do one but I'm not sure about Linksys. Let me know how you get on.

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?

Ok so I have a wireless adapter and I recently lost the password for it I was wondering if you had anyway to reset it or find it. I know it was just a bunch of letters and numbers nothing I set up.


The password you are referring might be WEP or WPA which assigned by your router. So you need to reset your router not the Wireless adapter. After you reset the router's Network Key (WPA/WEP)
You can reset your Range extender too; Press the Reset button on the back of the Range Expander for about ten seconds. This will reset the unit to its
default settings

Good Luck
