I am trying to extend the range of my home network to reach both floors above mine. I've been given 3 linksys re1000 range extenders but I can't understand if they can work in a cascade. I can get one working perfectly fine, but fail with the others. It looks like the second extender I add further away tries to connect to the main router (thus having poor to none signal) instead of the first extender (which gives a good signal as I tested with my laptop).
Is it possible to make them work in sequence?
I have tried manually configuring each of the extenders, giving different IP addresses, I installed them and I got to the computer on the farthest side of the home: it was showing strong signal, connected to the wireless network, gave me about 20 seconds of very fast browsing, then I was disconnected. I can reconnect but the link is very unstable, and keeps dropping.
Thanks for any help
