I am using a cisco router and asus RT-N66U wifi AP.  My pc and android devices seem to connect to the wifi with no problem but we are having trouble with macs not connecting.  Anyone have any idea what might be happening?

Make sure that the settings you are using are compatible with Mac - I can't think of any common setting that causes an incompatibility, but this is just to be thorough. Also, if this is certificate based you may need to ensure that the proper trust is already in place. You can also try updating firmware/drivers on the AP and Mac. I have seen a lot of drivers issues across numerous manufacturers lately especially when first trying 5Ghz, 802.11n/ac, and Windows 8.

Out of curiosity, did one of my suggestions resolve the issue? If so, could you specify which one so that other users who read this know what actually corrected the problem?

I am also a teacher at my school so have not had time to address the issue.  I suspect that the real problem is with my wifi ap's.  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Wireless/Q_28323245.html  I have been resetting the router and the wifi everytime I have the problem and that fixes it.  I am starting break now so hope to work on the solution.
