I have a Belkin Wireless G Universal Range Extender (Model F5D7132). It has been working fine as a wireless access point plugged into my router with a long cable. But I now have a new router and want to use it instead as a range extender. (picking up a signal from my main wireless router and boosting it).
I have pressed the reset button on the back. Plugged the unit direct to the PC with an ethernet cable. Loaded the Belkin CD that came with it. But I get stuck on the set-up.

It seems I have to set an IP address. And enter a subnet mask. This plunges me into a bit of a fog. I have tried obvious things like 192.168.2.50 and the subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 (which I got from the black screen thing on windows (sorry, don't know the right term for that)). But the response I get is: Unable to save data.

Can you help?

That configuration is incorrect. A 192.168.x.y address should have a subnet of 255.255.255.0

If you got a 169.254.x.y address, then the 255.255.0.0 would be correct.
