Question about Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander (WRE54G)

WAP54G as AP -- WRE54G no DHCP

Good morning,
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 ?


best regards

Jan

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

Access Error for Internet Radio in Yamaha Receiver 6295B


Use Auto/DHCP to configure the Yamaha receiver. Use DHCP on main router/AP to assign IP address. DO NOT reserve a DHCP IP address for the receiver on the main router/AP. Doing so will break all internet access for the receiver, but it will still connect to the LAN.

Ideally, there shouldn't be any configuration needed. Access points are transparent and only work as a bridge between wireless and wired network so devices should obtain their IP info from your DHCP server not the access point by default.
If you face problems, then there might be a DHCP server in the access point, disable that.

good luck

AP loses IP


What exactly do you mean by AP loses IP?

Are you saying the AP access point is no more able to get IP from DHCP server?

or the AP is no more able to provide IP to the connecting users?

Trying to connect Blackberry to EnGenius EOC Access Point - BB keeps saying it fails to get an IP address from the AP - how do I fix?


It sounds like your AP is not set up to be a DHCP server. If you want to use devices with your AP that expect to receive addresses over DHCP, then you either have to enable the DHCP server on your AP, or enable one somewhere else on your network to which your AP provides access.

Hey !
you said that you that you reset the WAP54G , the default IP address address of WAP is 192.168.1.245.
The IP address that you tried ( 192.168.1.1 ) must be the IP addres of the sonic firewall which might be acting as a DHCP server.
To access the WAP54G set up. you will need to connect the computer to the HUB and the WPA to the hub with the cable and then try to access WPA with the IP address 192.168.1.245

Unfortunately cyber this does not have a mode or option to act as a repeater .I have check their website and check the specification of the device..You may want to get the WAP54g from Linksys as well for it has that option (act as a wireless repeater) or get the WRE54G wireless extender or repater for Linksys router.

Hope this was informative.

DHCP option is disabled when LAN IP is Dynamic on DWL-G700AP


that is right the access point does not have a dhcp server. that will give an ip address to all of your computers or device connected to it wireless. If you have a modem with a dhcp server there will be no problem with the IP but if the modem does not you must have a router and now an access point.

Lost contact between PCs connected via AP


Set all the PC's to have a manual IP rather then using the DHCP from the router.
Also set the Gateway and Preferred DNS on the network cards to the routers IP (IE 192.168.0.1)

Getting The WRE54G To Connect With The WRT54G


The WRT54G, WRT54GS, and WAP54G all must have the latest firmware versions available installed in order to connect with the WRE54G Wireless-G Range Expander. Here are the minimum firmware version requirements that you must meet: * WRT54G (all versions): at least firmware version 2.02.2 * WRT54GS: at least firmware version 2.07.1 * WAP54G (all versions) : at least firmware version 2.07 To Identify your WAP54G Version Number: To find out which version of the WAP54G you currently have, flip your Access Point over to look at its underside. Near the serial number label, near the Linksys© logo, you will see your model number and a possible version. Labels for the WAP54G version will look like one of the following: * WAP54G (no version means Version 1) * WAP54G ver. 1.1 * WAP54G v. 2 For WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 Users ONLY: (if you have a WAP54G Version 2, you may proceed with the 2.07 or later firmware upgrade) NOTE: Before upgrading the WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 models to firmware version 2.07 or later, make sure your Access Point?s current firmware is version 1.09.1 beforehand. The version 1.09.1 code performs an important OS upgrade for these versions of the Access Point -- it must be loaded before using later firmware.
