In reading around I came away with the impression that I could secure my wireless network (WRT54G) with WPA2-Personal security and still be able to use a WAP54G as a repeater. Testing this setup, however, didn't work for me. After failing to extend the network, I disabled security on both the router and the access point and was then able to extend the signal.
Did I do something wrong? Is there a trick to get this to work? If I downgrade to WPA will that work? Or will WPA/WPA2 security just not work in this setup despite countless web sites that say otherwise? Thanks for any help or advice you can offer.
