Yes you can call Linksys about it if it is under warranty. Warranty is 3 years. Most likely just a configuration problem. Just give Linksys a call and they should be able to get you up and running

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)...

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.

Wireless range extender


Get the Access Point instead, costs almost the same, works the same plus more (less headache too).

I just bought a Wireless G Range Expander and when I try to set it up, I continually get the "Site Survey Failed". What am I doing wrong?


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.

No Power


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.
