    I have the above running 1.00.24 firmware. It is generally flawless with Broadcom, Atheros and Intel 2200 clients.

    I have two laptops with 3945abg and they cannot see the Linksys in a site survey.

    Why is this? I cannot even connect manually using the SSID.

    I am running WPA.

    I can even see APs that are further away from me!

    Check if MAC filtering is enabled in the router.

    Also, are you using Windows XP? Do you have the latest updates installed? Specifically KB893357

    i don't have mac filtering on - that's useless in this day and age just like WEP.

    In any case, mac filtering does not afflect visibility in a site survey.

    I am having the same problem in vista as well so I don't know if that update is relevant but I will try it.

    For visibility you have to enable the SSID broadcasting !

    Try a hard reset !

    Is the wireless led on ?
