Have a Action teck router from Verizon (FIOS).I have Mac adrressing ,WPA.I have 4 different laptops on the network plus a desktop.The two Thinkpads will not stay connected.They connect for about 2-3 min and drop off.The two thinkpads (model 6475DZ6) are my Kids business machines and they can't stay connected.If I connect directly to the router with a wired connection they stay on and work ok.So I figure I have the right mac address and right shared WPA key.Any Ideas.

The wired & wireless connections have different MAC addresses. Why don't you disable MAC filtering and WPA as a test? You really only need WPA. MAC filtering is a waste of time.
