  1. Helo!

    I bougth the WRT54g and wanted to connect it to my laptop.
    The laptop sees the connection but it doesn't connect.

    I tryied with all the settings but i can't do it.

    I made the sonnection nonprotected, and put the mac address and all the other setting should be with no protection. So that he doesn't ask even for the Key. But it doesn't want to connect.

    i don't know what should i try anymore.

    Thanks for your suggestions and help!

    My suggestion: bring it back to the shop and swap it for an equivalent D-Link, 3COM or NetGear router.

    Loads of problems with LinkSys on this forum alone!
