unless you are running into the initial problem that most older hardware had. You may need to do a firmware upgrade on your device that is connecting to the router. Firstly you can not use WPA, you can use WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK or WEP.
Secondly you can change the SSID to what you want, and the channel to 1 or 11.
However, it didnt work, until I disconnected, turned the power off my Wi Fi, unchecked the tab in the authenticate dialog box, clicked ok, then switched the Wi Fi power back on, and reconnected.
In the next window click on the "Authentication" tab, Make sure "Enable IEEE 802.1x...." checkbox is UN-Checked, the rest of this window should be greyed out.First, click on the wireless icon in your taskbar and under Related Tasks, choose Change advanced settings.Now click on the Wireless Networks tab and select the network in the list at the bottom.After about 30 minutes of fiddling around with various settings, I was able to figure out what the problem was.Here’s how to connect to your wireless router if you are getting this message.Click on Properties once you select the wireless network that is having problems.
