I'm not sure if it's the router or if there's some setting with the DHCP that I haven't configured with but there's a very annoying problem with my router. When I try to connect with it using almost any WiFi enabled device, most of my objects won't connect to it UNLESS there's another object trying to connect to it at the same time. My PSP and laptop connects to it MOST of the time without this nuisance, but my iTouch and PS3 aren't so lucky. Could someone guide my through settings I should have enabled or something like that?

I have a WRT54G router and mine is set up Automatic DHCP and under wireless its set to mixed mode and I am using WPA PSK encryption I have no problems at all connecting. Also if your gaming on your PS3 its best to use a wired connection its much faster. You could try resetting the Router to defaults (there is a reset button on the back).


Edit: typo (need more MtDew)

Thanks for your reply, and I forgot to tell you that I already switched my PS3 to an ethernet cable. It's very random if my things would connect or not, because I got up this morning and my iTouch automatically connected but yesterday it just wouldn't. I'll go check my settings and set them up like yours and I'll post back.
