Guess I expected more from a Cisco product. I am now unable to access the configuration menu via a wired ethernet connection. I tried several times to use the setup software to configure the repeater and kept getting an error stating the site survey failed. Most non noobe users are not going to leave their IP configured in this way. Now, the setup program says that it cannot find an extender on my network. Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag. Symptoms then become of machines not being able to see each other, or loss of external networking.

Maybe the guy in the outhouse only needs 54mbps instead of llnksys Who knows! Limited access meaning I could not get to the location where one would change the type of security.
