I have an Edimax range extender that works well , but I have now bought another which I want to use to extend from the other Edimax. Is this possible and if it is how do you set them up.

I have answered the problem myself. I have been in touch with Jessca Tai of Edimax. She infomed I needed the latest firmware, even though they were new extenders they didn't have the latest firmware (needs to be 1.04) Set up the first repeater IP address 192.168.1.80 Mask 255.255.255.0 Gateway 192.168.1.254 IP address of BT router Select Repeater mode Change SSI name Edimax 1 Put in a different user name and password, else other people can log onto the repeater and see the WPA key This will repeat the BT router

Set up the second repeater IP address 192.168.1.81 Mask 255.255.255.0 Gateway 192.168.1.80 IP address of BT router Select Repeater mode Change SSI name Edimax 2 Again put in a different user name and password, else other people can log onto the repeater and see the WPA key This will repeat the BT router

When trying ensure the repeaters and router aren't to close as it will not work reliably.

The pair are now working very well
