I have the DIR-825 operating downstairs. My computer is using a brand new Linksys AE3000 that I bought to access my router's 5GHz frequency band. I know the AE3000 works because it is picking up all the 5GHz signals in my area (I can tell because inSSIDer lists them all, as well as Windows 7 network connections lists them).
However, my personal 5GHz SSID seems to be inaccessible to me.
When I highlight it in the Windows 7 networking notification window, I see:
Signal Strength: Excellent
Security Type: WPA2-PSK
Radio Type: 802.11n
If I attempt to connect, I'm prompted to type in my network security key. I assume that to be the password I setup for the network. I type it in and then the wheel spins and nothing happens; eventually, a dialogue pops up stating, "Connecting to the network is taking longer than usual," followed by, "Unable to connect to *******" I tried typing in my pre-shared key instead of password once and no different result
All settings are the same for connecting to my 2.4GHz band, which works fine (just has a lot of competition in my apartment complex).
Any suggestions on how to fix this problem? I see "excellent" signal strength as an indication that there is some setting plugged in wrong, not a transmitter power issue.
Your thoughts? Thanks so much, I appreciate the help!
