Need help getting my wireless internet to work

Post by Racktacular » Sat Dec 06, 2008 6:31 am

I set up my Ooma yesterday. I have it set up with my modem and my wireless router (Linksys WRT54GS). I had no problems setting up the Ooma and it works just fine. The internet on my desktop PC (that is hardwired) into the router works fine. I have no problems getting on the internet and that is how I making this post. However, I hardly ever use my desktop PC. I always use my Macbook which connects to the internet wirelessly through the router. I set up the Ooma late yesterday and never tried to use the Macbook until this morning and I have no internet connection with my macbook. When I connect my Macbook directly to the router it works fine, but not wirelessly. The Macbook actually shows that I have a wireless internet connection but doesn't connect at all.

Can someone help me as this is a huge problem that I will have to return the Ooma if this doesn't work.
