      I'm not sure if it's possible to do that using the Linksys wireless client. In my setup where I used the WRE54G it was always so much stronger signal wise than the router it was never a problem as to which device the client adapter would connect.

      In the Windows XP client program I think that you can tell it to connect automatically to whatever AP you want and only connect if you tell it to do so to another AP. This works even if there is more than one AP with the same SSID in your location, I think....

      When trying to establish a solid connection, the linksys monitor offers me a choice between the router and the range expander, the latter giving a much better signal (> 90%) than the first (< 50%). Still it is often impossible to force my PC to choose the Expander(WRE54G), it keeps going back to the router(WRT54G). Both have the same SSID. Often, after a few trials ("connect", them giving the PSK password), the connection
      with the expander is established; once this is done, it stays on. Also, sometimes, it switches automatically on. The two lights on the expander are both blue, the whole time. How can I force the monitor always to connect to the WRE54G in stead of directly to the router?
