    I have a linksys wireless router wrt54gs v.2 and I set it up and it only allows one computer at a time to connect with it. I do not think i have any security things on it and i just set it up for anyone and everyone to use it. I need help to figure out how allow multiple computers (and my nintendo wii) to all be connected at the same time.

    I'd start with going to your routers webpage interface, click on the security tab and then wireless security--to verify that you have not set up secuirty (which of course is a bad Idea!). Next check the chan. # you are using and verify that you are not using MAC address filtering. As a last resort if you were comfortable with setting the router up originally I'd suggest resetting to factory defaults and reconfigure the entire network

    Now I think shuxiang means its bad to not have wireless security set, if you are using wireless make sure you have minimally setup WPA with a strong password, do not, let me say this again, DO NOT use wep. If you are not talking about wireless, go to your general page and make sure you have dhcp setup for as many hosts as you want to let connect. Post everything you checked and we can go from there.
