Question about Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander (WRE54G)
installed according to your comment.
But negativ, can not receive an IP Ads. ( result169 .....).
AP is not DHCP Server ! AP is sending the requests to a DHCP Server inside the LAN.
If I connect to the AP ( after switching off the Repeater , or closer to the AP )
all is ok.
No I am using the repeater as a different AP, that works but this is not what I want!!
Any comments ?
I had the same problem. Went through tons of emails and finally twigged onto one that had the solution. Sorry that I do not have the link but I think I know the solution.
The problem is probably in the router. Computers on the network can ping 192.168.1.240 and you can even open the application when you enter the address into your browser, correct? You are only half done.
On your router make sure that the Wireless Distribution Service or WDS is enabled. This is extremely important. You will need to enter the mac address of your WRE54G into the field in your router's advanced settings under WDS. That will connect the two devices together. Just as the WRE54G needs to know the mac address of the router, the router needs to know the mac address of the WRE54G.
I have ver 3 and when the connection was made, both LEDs went blue and the Link Status on the in the browser changed from ------- to the mac address of the router.
Give that a try
