Hello,

I recently switched from DSL to cable. No issues on DSL. Since switching to cable, I haven't been able to connect more than one computer to the wireless access point at one time. I have three computers, one running W7, one on xp, and one on Vista. All three of the computers have been able to connect to the WAP when connecting alone.

I am using a wap54g linksys access point. Setup is internet --> coax --> cable modem --> ethernet --> wap

Few question for clarification:

1 - you said you have a linksys access point. Is it an access point or a router?

2 - when using DSL, were you using a gateway provided by the ISP? Gateway is a modem plus router in one box.


If you were using a gateway and an access point, the cable ISP provides only a modem. You need to replace the access point with a router.

Thanks for the response. I did have an access point, not a router. The DSL modem had a router included in it. I bought a router and it works fine.

Thanks again!
