How to configure Linksys Range Expander (WRE54G)


As our need increases people try to find a way to increase the range of the current wireless network. That end with the invention of Wireless Range Expander. To increase the range and accessibility of a wireless network from an access point or wireless router we need to add Wireless Range Expander or simply calling Wireless Repeater in our network. Working of Wireless Repeater/Expander is like this device will receive signals from Wireless Access Point (Wireless Router) and repeat the same signal. So the available signal range doubles. In this tutorial I am going to write steps to configure or install one of the famous Range Expander - Linksys WRE54G on your network.

JohnFx said... I must be missing something, but in step 1 you say to connect it using an ethernet cable, but the WRE54G doesn't have an ethernet port on the device. At least mine doesn't. 6:21 PM

Siju George said... Hi John, It seems you have WRE54Gv1 (Wireless Range Expander ). This version of linksys range expander does not have any ethernet port. So the only option to configure it is by the auto config button.

Siju George said... I hope by home you mentioned the web based setup page of WRE54G Linksys Range expander. The default login IP of Linksys Range Expander is 192.168.1.240 but you might had changed the Range Expander IP address during the configuration. If that is the case you can do either one of the following solutions. 1. Try to remember the login IP or 2. Reset and reconfigure the Range Expander How to Reset a Range Expander 5:57 AM Post a Comment
