Unlike Linksys’ other “repeaters” that require a hardline to be dropped to it which is actually a little more wree54gthis systems “sees” a signal, latches on like a leach, then re-distributes it at an amplified feed. See all 2 brand new linksya. I have a neighbor that rarely uses the Internet and as a favor to them, I extended my home network into his home to allow him to use my wireless signal.
How will it benefit my wireless in my office or home? I’m trying to follow your instructions above – but I can’t get past step 4.
Generally, your best chance of success will be with Linksys Wireless Access Points. So, why would you want one? I wonder, can’t two routers work the same as those ethernet boxes? Wait until your client utility tells you that you have a connection before proceeding. Show More Show Less. Those steps took me a few hours Most non noobe users are not going to leave their IP configured in this way.
This “relay station” or “repeater” approach saves wiring costs and helps to build wireless infrastructure by driving signals into even those distant, reflective corners and hard-to-reach areas where wireless coverage is spotty and cabling is impractical.
I have even done it with tin pie pan. This button is located in a small hole on the left side of the Extender. I suggest starting by using the Point-to-Point bridging feature or its equivalent, since it’s the simplest and most likely to work. Different routers have different locations and terminology, on my router it is called Bridging. Only gave it a good rating wrs54g of how hard it was to set this thing up.
Once working it really does fantastic. Promote cracked software, or other illegal content Offensive: Push and hold the button until you see the Link light turn steady red.
I did not follow this point. This post has been flagged and will be reviewed by our staff. Gateway needed to be all “0” for it to work as an extender. Thank you for helping us maintain CNET’s great community. Make secure connection I have a Linksys system. CNET’s Forum on networking and wireless is the best source for finding help, troubleshooting, and getting buying advice from a community of experts.

This is what will allow the extender to extend the network. But this thing is definitely not for the faint at heart.
If you’re asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem.
Range Expansion is more like a self-fed repeater. I needed to enter the MAC address of the extender which appears on a bar code under the device.
Also, my router is in one end of the house, so I took a piece of cardboard and covered it with tin foil and put it behind the wireless router blocking the antenna’s view of the linkzys end of the house.
Nothing in my house ever has less than 4 bars, not even in the closets!! X range such as It is simply a pass through. Sorry, there was a problem flagging this post.

I have a newer HP dm3 laptop, Delland older Toshiba under Linux in our home that all work good and get no signal dropouts now with the extender. Crappy internet, problematic mobile solution. Aside from changing the channels – what else can I do to prevent the drops? The lowest-priced brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging where packaging is applicable. Most Read This Week. How do I prevent these drops of signal? The installer software that comes on the CD goes through a setup path that is to set the device up through your current wireless but it can’t connect to the device unless it is on your network “Wired”.
You will need to push in and hold the button until you see the link light turn a solid red. Let that bar low signal get amplified by the Range Expa nder. Thanks…Atown Read full review.
