Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender Problems

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am using the Linksys RE1000 wireless-N range extender in my living room in conjunction with a Samsung UN55ES8000FXZA. For whatever reason after an extended period of time using the extender or while it is idle it will lose connection. So far the only way I am able to receive signal again in the device is unplug it from the wall and plug it back in to reset it. Is this a common problem with range extenders? If so what causes it and if not what can I do to alleviate this issue? Also the internet is coming from the standard Comcast Xfinity wireless N router/modem.

It is not common for any wireless connection to just drop, and not reconnect unless a reboot is done. One of the guys at work used a 2.4 Ghz N extender, and I think this was it. I also know he asked me about issues he had with it. Let me ask him tomorrow what all problems he ran into.

Ok great thanks, I know its not common/acceptable for devices to drop but it seems like with this one in particular it is. The weird thing is that sometimes the connection lasts for a few weeks other times its a couple days before a reboot is needed.

Ok apparently the guy at work did have this same unit, and he was also having to reboot it to re-establish the link. Sounds like there maybe a design flaw with these units.

Get your self a linksys wrt54g router, load up DD-WRT firmware and set it up as Client Bridge.

If you need faster wifi speed, then get a Linksys WRT610N or any WRT xxx N single band router and install DD-WRT firmware.
