I bought a Belkin range extender to try to get around a large tree that blocks my line of sight to a second building some 300 ft away. I can get a very low signal down there from the Linksys router alone, but it drops out etc..
The Belkin will not setup or work with the security turned on. There is a small note in the setup leaflet, that says I have to turn the security off on the router while I punch the auto connect button that programs the repeater to the router, which makes sense. The Belkin then works, but when I turn security back on, it does not work.
I called Belkin. They agreed that it wouldn't work with the security turned on and said I needed to call Linksys to find out how to work around it. Since I don't speak Hindu that was about all I could get out of her.
Can anyone help me with this problem? It seems to me, that if anyone sells a repeater which they advertise as a universal range extender, it has got to work with security.
