So, why would you want one? I will make it easier for you. Those steps took me a few hours Unlike Linksys’ other “repeaters” that require a hardline to be dropped to it which is actually a little more reliablethis systems “sees” a signal, latches on like a leach, then re-distributes it at an amplified feed. Unfortunately there are some severe limitations on what you can do for security, and if security is something for you to consider, then be aware!

I would not recommend purchase of this device. Nothing in my house ever has less than 4 bars, not even in the closets!! You have to follow the directions from the manual, not the expandwr software, for 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 not been changed to reflect the “wired” setup but give instructions for a wireless network. Does exactly what it is said to do.

Also, the factory configuration uses a “0” in the third octet of the IP address Most non noobe users are not going to leave their IP configured in this way. Once working it really does fantastic. But this thing is definitely not for rahge faint at heart.

After reading extensively all the information I could find on this repeater I found that it does not work well or at all with some MIMO routers or routers that either auto select their operating channels or have the ability to transmit on one channel and receive on another Do I even need this thing? Show More Show Less. Now on the reality side, for people with upstairs down stairs configurations or maybe a church setting with a separate gym these things are perfect let your consumer level Linksys router distribute WiFi to the ground floor for example and plug the WRE54G in upstairs.

Windows 7 compatibility is a little spotty, only because of the more intense use of Linlsys instead of mainly depending on IPv4. See details for additional description. Linksys 3 Port Wireless Routers.
