Disadvantages Complicated install, not cheap
First of all, there are three versions, and you have to be careful because the 1st one is far inferior to the Version 2 (V2) and Version 3 (V3). V3 is the easiest one to identify, other than the fact that on the underside of the item it is clearly marked as a Version 3 it has an Ethernet cable
Before I begin, there is an auto config button on the side of the range expander. You simply hold the button down for a few seconds and the device will automatically find your network and hey presto. Well only if you have a simple network with little or no security. Below like most, is the out come if you have MAC filtering, WEP security and a disabled SSID broadcast (all the tech terms are explained as you read on!!)First attempt at installing resulted in the expander not being found. Second time and the same result. Third time and again no expander was found and nor was my router. So I called Linksys technical support on 0800 026 1418 for free and went through my problems with the advisor in their Philippinescall centre. The support is 24/7 and I was calling at 23:45 UK time.
So we went through the installation process as follows:Enable SSID (broadcasts your wirelessrouters name)
