Vista won't connect to wireless storage
I have searched every where for answers but have not found anything that solves the problem.

I have recently acquired a laptop running Vista Business. I have managed to connect this laptop to my home network which consists of one desktop PC running XP a second laptop running XP Home and one desktop PC accross the street also XP. All of these connect wirelessly to my network. So far so good.

I have two wireless routers, one connected to the other. (D-link 524 wireless G) and a Linksys WRT350N with usb storage. I keep my d-link as it never fails me but when the linksys behaves the range and speed is amazing.

My problem, my new lap top running Vista Business sees the wireless storage device but when I try to logon it does not accept my credentials. All other machines can acces using the same credentials but all others are running XP.

The storage device is a 320GB Digital Research

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
Curly.

Thanks to everyone that read and tried to help me with this one. I found the problem and figured I should let everyone know what it was.

The issue had to do with the firmware on the Linksys, it needed an update in order for the USB storage to be read by Vista. Found it reading the revision detail on the firmware. Hope this can help someone else.

Curly.
