Just bought the WRT120N
1 Laptop Vista Home Premium
1 Laptop Windows XP Pro
With Wizard Setup run with enclosed CD, setup went flawlessly. PPPoE connection with Username and Password required by ISP - no problem. Security is disabled since I'm in a rural area with no users within a mile.
Basic Wireless Setting:
Default 1st Change
Network Mode: Mixed Mixed
Network Name: xxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxx
Channel Width: Auto 20mhz
Wide Channel: Auto Auto
Standard Channel: Auto 1-2.41Ghz
SSID Broadcast: Enabled Enabled
Two "wired" computers came right up.
The "wireless" Vista Laptop came right up with the Default settings The "wireless" Windows XP Pro Laptop shows "Limited or No Connectivity" with the Default settings.
Per a phone call with Linksys techs (which took an hour and produced poor results) I made the changes listed under "1st Change". This resulted in a reversal of the "wireless" PC's connections. The Vista PC no longer connects - the Windows XP Pro PC now connects.
XP Pro computer has an Atheros AR5005g network card.
Vista computer has Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN network card.
Am assuming there's a happy medium to be reached between 11 different Standard channel settings and experimenting with Channel Width for each Standard channel setting.
Am hoping someone can help cut through the experimentation.
