    I received a Linksys WRT54G wireless G router/hub as a Christmas gift and I have 2 wired connections and 2 wireless G connections hooked up to this and they all work just fine with it.

    I also have 2 wireless B ethernet connections with one connected to my HTPC using the ethernet connection and the other connected to the ethernet connection on my ReplayTV. The wireless B connections do not connect to the router for some reason.

    Any suggestions on how to get the router to recognize the wireless B connections?

    Thanks,
    Parker

    when u log onto you router (192.168.1.1 password: admin), in your settings there should be 3 differnt settings mixed, g only and b only. make sure it's in mixed. Try B only to see if u can pick up that one. also call linksys and see if they can help out.

    Yeah, I sent an email to them but haven't heard back yet so I am waiting on them to repond and thought I would try here.

    I have the router already set to mixed. I will try the B only setting and see if that works.

    Thanks,

    Well, I attempted to talk to Linksys by phone but they weren't any help.

    I have gone back to my BEFW11S4 for the time being. Eventually I have get a wireless G conncetion for my HTPC and when I get an XBOX 350 I will get the wireless connection for it.
