The range expander helps to extend the range of wireless network... Anyhow the range expander has to be placed withing the range of your Apple "wireless" router (Make sure your apple router is wireless router, if it is a wired router, then there is no use of range expander...! U need to buy an Access Point instead)... your range expander must be connected to the computer(using an ethernet cable) from which you are trying to configure... Site survey searches for the available wireless networks in range... It should show your existing wireless network... You need to select your appropriate network and you need to configure the Range expander wireless settings according to the Apple router's wireless settings... exactly the same SSID(Network name), Security type and encryption technique, password PSK (security key) has to be selected on your range expander as in the APPLE wireless router... Thats it... You are done... Your wireless network range would have extended now....
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.
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.
Before you plug it in the wall, insert the installation disc and go through their tutorial. When you do that you'll plug in your range expander, press the auto configuration button on the side and wait for both lights to turn up blue. Then you can unplug the range expander and put it else where.
