I have one WRT54G2 and two WRE54G, I've d9ownloaded latest firmware for all three devices. Also I setup WEP encrytion and have connected with 3 ups each device separately. The problem that we have is that sometimes client PCs, take about 30 minutes to get a IP Address, and sometimes they dont. WRE54g's have both lights BLUE, indicating that they are well connected. I come to test it and it works fine. This behavior is sometimes, (of course when I am not there) :(

the configuration is set up this way:

Ip> via DHCP

the security on three devices is setup to be:

WEP with a shared Pre KEY.

Both WRE54g  have the same config as shown.

In routers advanced settings, I also have this config, (default)

 Authentication Type: AutoShared Key    (Default: Auto)
