Default Re: cant connect to wireless

Do you have everything configured correctly in the settings and such for internet access? This is an extending device, these devices require a lot of care and setup. Please explain more about your network and how it is setup.

Try updating the firmware to the device if there is a firmware update.

Just asking: Are you sure it is a "WRE54GS" ?
