Well, I got DD-WRT installed and working about... 3 hours ago. Since then, I've done nothing but try to get the damn security to work right with absolutely no luck. I'm definitely no pro when it comes to networking so I'm completely and utterly lost.
I first tried using WPA2-AES. Made up a key, connected via my Windows XP computer with no problem. Yay, working security, right? Nope. When I try to put the same key in to connect on my PS3 and on my roommate's Vista notebook, it says the key is wrong. So I figure maybe it's just WPA2-AES. Tried WPA-TKIP, same exact problem. XP computer connects, others think it's wrong.
I have no idea what the issue could be but I know one thing for certain - I am not entering the key wrong - I've typed, copied, retyped and pasted the thing probably 200 times now with no success. Both of the other units (Ps3 and Vista NB) connect fine when the network is unsecured, but I can't leave it unsecured.
At this point I feel like the router is only allowing one computer to connect to it since I'm always connecting the XP computer first. Any ideas? I'm getting extremely frustrated here.
