Hey there everyone. Just made the switch over to Apple, and have loved it with the exception of this issue. I have a Linksys wireless router WRT54G (version 5) with the newest firmware installed. The router works perfectly with my old windows laptop, both wireless and wired. The macbook picks up the network, says it is "connected" to the network, but stays permanently in the "getting status" stage. It won't work wired or wireless. However, if I plug the macbook directly into the dsl modem, it works fine. Initially I called Apple, who said they couldn't help b/c it was a Linksys issue, but assured me it was a common problem, it was due to the router being set up for a PC, and said something had to be changed with the security settings (more digits in the password if i recall correctly) and that it was a very quick process with Linksys support. Well.....after about two hours on the phone with a completely baffled support guy from Linksys....his only solution was that it must be an apple problem. He ran me through the typical string of banal solutions (reset the router, et al) put me on hold about 15 times, and nothing came of it. We did try to switch the router from WEP to WPA but that didn't seem to do anything. Has anyone else had this problem? I've searched around and not found much about it, but Apple support seemed to know of it right away. Any help would be HUGELY appreciated, as this is begining to drive me insane.
