router woes

Hello I have a linksys wireless router and a firewall router. I run a line from my cable modem to the firewall and then to the wireless router. I have two computers hooked directly into the firewall router and a powerbook which i want to use wirelessly. Everything works but the powerbook. Does anyone know why this is?

Difficult to tell what the problem is with so little info. Have you used this wireless router bebofre? Is this router or access point? It is b or g? However, I suggest configuring this ap as open as possible. In other words, set linksys to bradcast essid, turn wep off, make sure mac filtering is turned off. Try pinging your wireless ap to see if you can even reach it. Try using different channels. Also see if your linsys can see your pb (go to advanced -> wireless -> mac clients or something like it). Do you have a win based wireless device, sometimes it is easier connect using windows. If you can do that, at least you'll know that your linksys ap is configured properly. Hope this helps.
