Devices of such age will require wireless-b even in cases they support wireless-g. Also they may not support WPA2 or AES.

I have several other devices of the same model that do fine.   And the specs on the device indicate it supports all the newest wireless.  These are currently being sold by Motorola.

Works on virtually any wireless LAN

The 802.11a/b/g tri-mode radio connects to both 2.4GHz and 5GHz WLANs for cost-effective voice and data connectivity in the office and hot spots; 802.11a (5GHz band) support enables segmentation of voice traffic to ensure voice quality
