    I have two wifi routers in my house, Linksys WRT54G which is connected to the internet through ethernet cable and ADSL modem and Asus RT-N13U is used as the wireless repeater since my house is big and WRT54G's signal strength is not strong enough to cover my home.

    When i'm near the WRT54G, iTunes wifi sync works flawlessly but as soon as i move move to the repeater area, wifi sync just doesn't work at all. My iPhone 4 won't even be visible in the iTunes.

    Is anyone else facing this problem with repeaters/multiple wifi routers?
    I will be glad if you guys can help me solve this problem....

    Try unplugging them all and then plugging back in again.

    Are you certain that the Asus is set up to bridge the connection, because it sure sounds like a classic case of just being on separate subnets. And/or the firewall is still on on the Asus.

    ^^Asus has a simple web based UI for configuration. I just have to select which network you want to repeat...enter the password and you are done! it doesn't display any technical details such as bridge mode, firewall, etc.

    Btw, the Asus router is NOT connected with the ethernet cable to the linksys. It wirelessly repeats the signal.
