For this router you can use the Linksys range expander model WRE54G v3 take not of the version number that is important since the older range expander don;t work on all routers.

Cant find a strong enough connection


You need to buy a Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander to boost the signal
  • Move your wireless router to a central location in your network, keeping in mind that the router should be at waist level at the very least, not on the ground.

  • Plug in the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander in the room where your wireless router is. You'll move the range expander later, but for setup purposes, it should be in the same location as your wireless router.
  • Press the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander's "Auto Configuration" button for five seconds, which will allow the range expander to detect your wireless network and configure itself with the appropriate settings.
  • Unplug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander and relocate it to a location closer to the Xbox 360.
  • Ensure that the antenna for the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander is pointing upward, and keep in mind that the higher the range expander is placed, the better performance you will get out of it.
  • Plug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander back in, and your wireless network should have a much greater range, ensuring that your Xbox 360 is able to maintain a good connection to the network.

    No connect to router wireless, no wizard


    Hi,

    You have to make sure that the settings on your wireless router is exactly the same as your wireless expander. Before you place your wireless expander to the spot you want to extend your wireless network, you may want to test it first when it is 10ft to 15ft away from your wireless router. Just to make sure you got it working. And then just keep on moving your expander every 10ft until you reach the farther spot that the expander can reach with good connectivity.

    I need to expand my att dsl coverage with an range expander but don't know which one to use. I have a 2wire modem but can't get an answer from ATT about which range expander to use or where to get it


    Linksys makes a simple range expander you can use. Most expanders do not need to be connected to the network by a data cable. Just put it within range of your main access point or wireless router, and it "bounces" the signals out to remote wireless devices.
    Try the Linksys WRE54G ($70-$100)

    Hi David,


    I need to know that what type of router u r using.

    If it is Linksys router just follow these steps,

    with the help of the Ethernet cable connect the range expander to any one of the 4 ports in the router...

    ur computer shuld be directly hook up to the router..

    open internet explorer in ur computer..in the address bar type in 192.168.1.240(ip address of the range expander)

    it will prompt for a username and password...leave the user name blank and the password will be admin.

    u can see the linksys range expander set up page...

    u can find SSID at the bottom of the page...

    ur router's SSID and the range expander's SSID should be same..and also the password should be same..

    If the ssid or password mismatch between the router and range expander u can find these kind of Error messages...

    Good Luck....try it and revert back

    Hi,

    Initially, it is possible that the WRE54G has not been configured to talk with WiFi AP/Router downstairs and all that is needed is to configure/set it up.

    Setup (to be done in the same room where your WiFi AP/Router is installed and preferably with your daughter's laptop which can already connect to your network when it is near):
    1. Download the LinkSys WRE54G Setup Wizard from the LinkSys site;
    2. Use a LAN cable connection to the WRE54G Ehternet port (located underneath a flip lid in front panel) to one of your daughter's laptop;
    3. Power up the LinkSys Expander;
    4. Press the Range Expander’s Auto Configuration button for about five seconds. Normally this should be sufficient for the Expander to auto-detect and auto-configure itself;
    5. Power off;
    6. Move the Expander to your intended place of installation;
    7. Again using your daughter's laptop, expand/install the downloaded LinkSys Setup Wizard. Soon as the program is running, follow the on screen instructions. Please don't forget to Save before exiting.
    8. Move your daughter's laptop to its intended location and try the system.

    Should you still need a User's Guide, it is available here.

    Another possibility that we cannot discount is that the WRE54G is also not reaching your router downstairs. Perhaps what can be done is installing it not a floor down from your daughter's but halfway between your daughter's floor and your office downstairs.

    Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.
