- Getting the WRE54G to connect with the WRT54G, WRT54GS, or WAP54G
The Wireless-G BroadBand Router (WRT54G), Wireless-G BroadBand Router with SpeedBooster (WRT54GS), and Wireless-G Access Point (WAP54G) must all have the latest firmware versions installed in order to successfully connect with the Wireless-G Range Expander (WRE54G).
Here are the minimum firmware version requirements that you must meet:
- WRT54G (all versions): at least firmware version 2.02.2
- WRT54GS: at least firmware version 2.07.1
- WAP54G (all versions) : at least firmware version 2.07
- WAP54G (no version means Version 1)
- WAP54G ver. 1.1
- WAP54G v. 2
Before upgrading the WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 models to firmware version 2.07 or later, make sure your Access Point’s current firmware is version 1.09.1 beforehand. The version 1.09.1 code performs an important OS upgrade for these versions of the Access Point. It must be loaded before using later firmware.
NOTE: If you have a WAP54G Version 2, you may proceed with the 2.07 or later firmware upgrade.UPGRADING FIRMWARE
