Is it possible to use the built-in Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps) port to extend the network with an Ethernet cable without placing the extender in an area where you still have at signal ?
because i dont want to decrease the wireless through-put by 50 % .
I would like to Expand the network network by running an Ethernet cable from an RE4200(Basement floor ) router to the end of the RE1000 built-in Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps) port in the second floor..

The Linksys RE1000 Wireless-N Range Extender includes a built-in Fast Ethernet (10/100 Mbps) port, which works as a wireless bridge to instantly connect any wired Ethernet device to your network. To ensure the proper configuration of the range extender, you need to know the wireless settings of your router or access point. These settings are:
• Wireless Channel
• Wireless Security and Network Key
Here is the link for manually configuring a range extender: http://www6.nohold.net/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?vw=1&docid=206954591ff54e36884bb4636fcfd3d9_Manually_configur...
Once your range extender gets sync with your router you can make the RE1000 as a Bridge...

Well, the feature that you are looking for is not available in RE1000. So, for that you need to have an Access Point..

I mentioned in the previous post that you need to have an Access Point. So, the Model Number for the Access Point is WAP610N. The key features are:
• Add high-speed Wireless-N to your existing network
• The perfect partner for wireless video streaming
• Operates in the 2.4 and 5 GHz radio bands -- choose the one with least congestion in your area
