I have an old Linksys WRT54G router (can't remember which version, 1.1 maybe) I have been using for years, with 2 computers (1 wired WinXP, 1 wireless dualboot XP and Ubuntu). Has always and is still working great.
Lately I have tried connecting other computers, but don't seem able to.
One example is a friends computer that I bought a new D-link wireless usb adapter. installed it at my home, set it up in the same room as my router, it sees the network (along with others in the area), but after putting in the ssid and the pass phrase, it wont connect. I called D-link support, and after running some troubleshooting, they said it has to be the router, since the adapter is able to see the networks, therefore it is working sort of thing.
Have also tried using a new linksys WMP54g Ver 4.1 adapter on another computer and same sort of deal.
Could it be that the router is just so old, it can't connect to newer adapters?
Could a full reset possibly correct the problem? I'm not at home right now or I would try, unless someone has some trouble shooting I could try.
Thanks for any and all help!
