I'm wondering if the Hawking range extender 300-N will work with the Linksys/Cisco WRVS4400N router.

I know there are problems with some consumer routers only working with repeaters made by the same manufacturer.  Is the same true for business products?

For example: the WRT54G router is one of the few models that will work with Linksys's repeater.

Hawking is pretty open to other vendors. This should work.

I have a few hawking extenders, at least one of them coupled to a Linksys WRT router.
Streange but true: Linksys repeaters and bridges are difficult to connect with other devices.
Lately I had trouble building a bridge between 2 linksys routers. Between a Linksys and a Buffalo all went fine.
