I agree it's very odd. The clients, a noka n800 and a hp laptop with a
netgear wg311 work fine with my main access point. Sometimes they connect,
but it is very rare. I will try to debug. No more suggestions?? Does my
config look sound. I see a few other people have had this problem, but
there seems to be no resolution.
