    Hi everyone. I know enough about wireless networking to be dangerous and I'm afraid that's what brings me here. I need some help from the linksys tomato community. I had a Belkin N+ router that after updating the firmware I was unable to get my son's PS3 connected to it. I picked up a WRT54GL router and soon discovered that the interface was cumbersome and I didn't see where I could assign the devices in my home a static IP. Surfed the web, found tomato and installed it. With that up and running, I first tried getting online with my Ipod touch. That was no problem. However, I have an Onkyo receiver and a TPLink adapter and when I try to connect to the network it simply says "Connection Failed". I have no idea why my ipod can connect but my receiver cannot. Any ideas what I need to look at? Thanks for any help!

    BTW, the PS3 also will connect. Not sure what settings are preventing my receiver from connecting.....perhaps it's the tp link adapter?

    TP-Link stuff usually works, what kind of adapter is it? Anything special? How is it being used?

    It's the tp link tl-wn722n. Interesting in that last night after work I plugged that adapter into an old computer and got connected to my wireless network just fine. So I guess it's not the adapter. Having said that, I had been connecting my Onkyo Receiver to the net when I had my Belkin N+ router. Now it doesn't connect with the Linksys using the exact same TP Link adapter. I even turned off security and it still didn't connect. My receiver can see the wireless network but won't connect. As a last resort I'm going to do a factory reset of my receiver and see if that solves the problem......I'm thinking it has something to do with the fact I was connecting the Belkin and switch routers. But I'm puzzled and not thrilled about losing all my settings on my receiver by doing a factory reset.
