Are there known/previously experienced compatibility issues between wg511v2 and Belkin Pre_N Wireless Router?
Has anyone else successfully used one of the wg511v2 cards with this new router? If so what if anything did you have to do to get them to work?
We recently added several Belkin Pre_N Wireless Routers/Access Points (F5D8230-4) to our network. Once configured all of our new Belkin cards as well as mixed bag of Proxim, Orinoco, and older Netgear cards worked flawlessly. However we have added a signifigant number of new wg511v2 cards and none of these is able to connect/stay connected to the new Belkin APs.
We have tried the Netgear's current release of the driver/firmware/client listed on the site as well as trying the beta release also listed as of 1/4/05. For our testing, we disabled WEP, enabled broadcast SSID and allowed access to all wireless clients in place of restricting the MACs of wireless clients, but disabling all of these settings did not affect the ability of the wg511v2's not being able to connect. At the same time all other clients were able to connect with or without the security settings in place. On occasion we were able to see the AP in a scan with all security tools disabled, but when attempting to connect the card would fail to communicate with the AP. We are not new to the wireless game...however this is the only card (wg511v2) that we are having problems incorporating into our network.
Our wireless environments include:
APs/BridgesRouters: Orinoco 1000, 2000, 4000 Proxim Tsunami MP11 Netgear MR314, MR814v2 Belkin Pre_N(F5D8230-4)
Wireless Cards: Orinoco Gold (prisim) Proxim a/g Orinoco Gold Proxim a/b/g ComboCard Netgear ma401 Netgear wg511v2
BTW: we have tickets open with both Belkin & Netgear, but no responses yet.
Thanks in advance,
