However as you stated the CD installation is not worth a crap and I am still stuck with this thing and can’t get it to work!! If I make it secure, Can my new laptop with Windows 7 also use it? May have just found a easier way. Nothing in my house ever has less than 4 bars, not even in the closets!! It turned out that I had different WEP codes on my client side since although I used the same pass phrase it didnt generate the same key on the router and client. It “extends” the range of your wireless router by being on the same frequency and channel. Proffitt Forum moderator January 1, 9:

Linksys WRE54G V.3 “EASY SETUP INSTRUCTIONS” – Forums – CNET
That’s what I want to know! But this thing is expanfer not for the faint at heart. I tried several times to use the setup software to configure the repeater and kept getting an error stating the site survey failed. The WRE is now congigured to your network, Security settings, everything. 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”.
Ok, I connected the expander directly via cable per your instructions and updated the firmware from 3. Just ammend it to say version 2 and above lolthat will be fine, I had a feeling that you were talking about version 2 and up anyway, I was just responding because, I guess I was venting myself from the restlessness that that freaking version 1 has caused.

Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander WRE54G – repeater WRE54G WRE54GCU | eBay
Proffitt Forum moderator December 4, However, you can just ignore it, because contrary to what Tech Support will tell youyou are still OK. It is a repeater only. Does exactly what it is said to do. Windows expznder does support WEP encryption but being newer it tends to like WPA, but should work just fine with WEP, so rescan for wireless networks on the new lihksys and enter key to connect, and if all goes well you should be connected 64 bit WEP on Win 7!
Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander (WRE54G) Help
Cat-5 the wre54g to the router. Can’t really return it, it was bought on Ebay and it has been about 3 months.
So, why would you want one? I would not recommend purchase of this device. CNET’s Forum on networking and wireless is the best source for finding help, troubleshooting, and wre54v buying advice from a community of experts.

Linksys WRE54G Wireless-G Range Expander Setup Wizard
So, expand your wireless network’s effective coverage the easy way, with the Wireless-G Range Expander. There was a presentation given at an internet security conference a couple years ago where the FBI demonstrated they could break WEP security in less than 3 minutes. You have to follow the directions from the manual, not the installer software, llinksys a wired install and know enough to get around the sad fact that the instructions to install wired are partially copied from the wireless install and have wre4g been changed to reflect the “wired” setup but give instructions for a wireless network.
