I'm trying to set up a wireless expander by Linksys - WRE54G... I cannot access their setup page just times out or gives 401 error. Help please. I contacted Linksys and they are no help at all.. just said to try again. I've been trying for 5 days now!

Are you sure that the device is set to that IP address?

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

You need to use a cable tto connect to that router so in your computer, go Start then Run or use the Windows key plus R , then type in the following into the Open box, including all the spaces:-

cmd /k ipconfig /all

then press Enter and from the black form that shows up, take a note of the numeric code beside the Default Gateway icon - something like

Type exit to close the black form.

Open Internet Explorer and enter that code into the URL address bar as though it was a website. You're then at the login page to the router's settings utility and admin will usually be the login with either admin or password as the password which in a Linksys the login is usually linksys and there is no password.
