    I just wanted to know if I were to purchase a netgear wireless extender (b/g supported) would it work correctly with my linksys speedbooster (b/g supported)? or would it have problems? Should I stick with linksys products if I want a extender or does it matter?

    As long as they run the same wireless standard (and they do) I do not think they will have any problems.

    It shouldn't matter but for what it's worth I have the same router and I bought a linksys extender and it works really well.

    BLAH! I went ahead and ordered the Netgear RangeMax Wireless Router and RangeMax Access Point. I was reading reviews about them and seen that people were having alot of dead spots upgraded to the 108mbps router and all there deadspots were gone. Also, how do you go about setting up the access point? Does it have to be hard wired or is it a plug and play thing to extend the network?
