are you using the WZC to connect or the linksys utility? have SSID unique
and broadcast on? What type of security are you using?
(wep/wpa/wpa-psk/etc)? have b/g compatibility enabled? (not all pre-n's talk
to other manufacterers pre-n's, and the security settings don't always work
the same between manufacturers)
just for fun, i'd say give it a try with b/g compatibily enabled, ssid
unique, broadcast on, and security turned off....
