Troubles with a public WiFi connecting with Nooks and Kindles

I'm supporting a small public library that is using NetGear ProSafe Dual Band Wireless Access Point WAG102.  Using 802.11b/g, channel 11 with no security assigned.

While smartphones and laptops connect with no issues, Nooks and Kindles see the SSID but fail to connect.  Normally with a fail to authenticate error.

It was an unsecured network and once I placed a password on the WiFi, all of the devices started working.
Strange, normally this kind of behaviour affects Apple iPhone and iPad.
Try to set the network to G only instead of B/G

Does this help?

Thanks for the quick reply,   The Wi-Fi was originally set to G only, I changed it to B/G just recently in hopes it would fix it...

This is mentioned in the Nook's FAQ. Don't know if you have tried it or not.
A lot of times deleting a device's profile and trying it again works.

"Tap the network you want to connect to, and select Forget. Tap the Wi-Fi network again to connect. If you are still having issues, please call customer service at 1-800-THE-BOOK (1-800-843-2665)."

I've previously tried the deleting of the device profile with no success.
