I have a Linksys Wireless N router. I was told that it can also use wireless G products. However, I purchased a Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander and cannot get it to work. I can't find N Range Expanders anywhere. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

Try these settings on router set the wireless channel to Wide band and set wide channel to 9 and standard to 11. Try security mode either WEP or WPA with TKIP. Make sure the firmware on Range Expander support the encryption on the router.

I'm sorry. I was sure that I had given you all the points and chosen your answer. I'm not sure what I did incorrectly. This site confuses me every time I'm on it. I do apologize.
