Re: extending range of wrt54g router
Yes there is a way to extend the range. it involves flashing a 3rd party firmware into your router. another way is to buy better antennas for it. radio shack has a pair for your router that are made by gigaware that will add 7dBi to your range. That is an easier solution. if your want to try flashing your router (my personal favorite way), then let me know and i will walk you through on how to do it. ; )

You can install a wireless range extender. Try a Netgear Dual Band WiFi Range Extender, this device extends the wireless range of your existing wireless router, it connects to your wireless router using a wireless connection without the need of a LAN cable.
Hi , I was also facing same problems.I have solutions please follow some steps:
1.Restart Your Main Wireless Router And Modem.
2.Now Turn Off Your Belkin Range Extender And Wait For 20 seconds (unplug From Power)
3.Please Plug Your Extender Back To Power Outlet And Restart Your Computer.
The possible cause is the router is not able to extend the signal to that range. Try using a range extender to boost your wireless signal. Signal strength depends on the router. So adding a range extender should solve this issue
Try to configure your new router and you have to reconfigure the Range extender to tally with the new router. The IP Address that the range extender should have should depend on the DHCP server of your router that provides the IP Address.
I have 2 x Belkin N1 vision dsl (cable) routers. One is connected fine with Virgin 20 meg broadband. Is it possible to use the other N1 vision router as a range extender up stairs to get better signal , without using any cat5 cabling ? I.e router-to-router
The WRK54G is actually a stripped down version of the WRT54G that was bundled with a wireless network adapter and sold under the kit name WKPC54G.
From what you say in your question I gather that you have a WRT54G already in place as your access point, and it is what is connected to your WAN. To use the WRK54G as a range extender repeater you should do the following:
1. Turn off DHCP 2. Turn off NAT 3. Assign a fixed IP that is in your Class C Block 4. Define the WRT54G as the Gateway
With this configuration it now should function as an extender/repeater, and any clients connecting to it will be serviced by the DHCP on the master router.
