    I am having a hard tie here, hope someone can give me a hand

    1.AirPort Express and Linksys WRT54G. I have not been able to connect wirelessly to my Home network (when I connect the airport to the ethernet it does connect)

    2. I need to extend the range of my home network, and was thinking to use my airport express to do this (according to manual it names this as WDS), anyway I have not been able to do this... Does the base station would be my Linksys? I do I do this?

    please, some help... I believe that answer would be long, but just send me some ideas, manual of product is not that specific and helpful.

    I really appreciate your help

    believe me. Nothing works, just when it is connected to ethernet directly... why?

    I tried for a long time to get my Aiprort Express to extend my WRT54G and never got it to work. I was using OpenWRT on the WRT. Others here have reported success with OpenWRT or DD-WRT.

    e.g. http://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?pid=34022

    I broke down and got the Airport Extreme when I absolutely needed it to work and it does.
