Product Details

Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander, Model WRE54G

Features:

  • Freedom of Wireless
    Unlike adding a traditional access point to your network to expand wireless coverage,
    the Wireless-G Range Expander does not need to be connected to the network by a data
    cable. Just put it within range of your main access point or wireless router. It is designed
    to “bounce” signals into those distant, reflective corners and hard-to-reach areas where
    wireless coverage is spotty and cabling is impractical. This “relay station” or “repeater”
    approach helps to build a wireless infrastructure and save wiring costs
  • Wide Compatibility
    The Wireless-G Range Expander works with most Wi-Fi certified access points and wireless
    routers. And it works in with both Wireless-G and Wireless-B devices so you’ll get the
    benefits of increased coverage even with a mixed network
  • Easy Configuration
    Installation is a snap with the Auto Configuration button. Just plug it in and press the
    button. The Expander is designed to find your wireless network and configure itself
    automatically

WRE54G did what it was supposed to do

By 

from Texas

About Me High bandwidth user

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Fast
  • Fast Connection Speed
  • Reliable connection
  • Secure Connection

Cons

  • Surprised

Best Uses

  • Home network

Comments about Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander:

Excellent product in that it does what we bought it to do: expanded our WiFi coverage to remote areas of the home.

Was surprised that the setup program modified the TCP/IP settings of my laptop to have a specific IP address rather than the DHCP I wanted.

Easy to correct. Cisco tech support was helpful, but didn't know how the SETUP program did this.

Service and delivery comments:

ABT is the best!
Fast delivery.
Low price.
Will do business again.
