What is the client vendor of the wireless hardware, Intel?  Make sure you have have the latest drivers from the hardware vendor.  I had challenges when I upgraded the firmware on the sonicwall, which would update the sonicpoints.  When this happened, but my clients couldn't connect until the wireless hardware drivers were updated.Also, is security set to Auto on the sonicwall or TKIP?

I would roll down your firmware and see what happens..

Are you sure you have the General Release firmware or did you install the Early Release? (Beta)
