I'm having trouble setting up a Linksys WRT160N router to work with a Linksys WRE54G wireless access point.
I've tried the auto setup on the access point (just holding the button on the unit while it is near the router), and the wired setup (theirs and manual) with the enclosed disk, and the best I can get is a strong signal that lasts around 1-5 minutes, then drops to very low or none.
I've tried different setting on the router: mixed, G only; auto channel, or 6 or 11; channel width on 20 only or auto, etc.
I'm trying to get the signal to reach from one end of a house to the other, with a garage and appliances in between (concrete wall construction). Less than 100 feet.
This post says it's possible:
What exactly does "you should setup auto mode on router" mean? I thought I had.
This is embarrassing. What am I doing wrong? (I realize there's a chance the access point is defective, but I want to be sure it's not a fleshware problem first.)
