    I have a linksys bg wireless router at one end of a rather long convoluted
    ranch house. I'd like to connect a cat5 cable from the router to a linksys
    wap at the other end of the house, so wireless access will be available
    throughout. Once the cable is connected, how do I configure the wap. No
    encryption is necessary

    It's not hard, but I don't feel like doing homework right this
    minute.
    Why don't you:
    1) go to the linksys site and download the instructions for this WAP.
    Read it.
    2) Go to linksysinfo web site and find a sticky or tutorial for
    setting up an AP as ...an AP!



    OK. I did your homework a little more. Typing "setup linksys WAP"
    into google (something so simple even your average novice could do
    it!) yields:

    Thanks for the info, I had done some searches, but nothing specific to my
    needs turned up. I wasn't aware that Linksys had this specific info on their
    site. I assumed that this was more complicated than it is. For what I'm
    doing, it's pretty much plug and play. Thanks

    That link looks like a photo of the best governor Texas never had, the
    one they failed to elect.

    I kinda doubt that you are that same cigar chomping musician guy from
    camp, um was it Echo Hill ? ... anyway if so, howdy !

    Needless to say, everything I do with computers or networking, is plug and
    pray

    Oh, OK. It's the photo you linked to. Looks like Kinky F. Who
    does live in NY at times.
