I have had it set to WEP enabled and have had no issues maintaining multiple concurrent pc's connection to the internet. I recently tried increasing the security to a WPA level. Upon doing so I could only maintain one pc connection. I returned it to its previous setting to confirm that the setting seemed to be the culprit. Do I need a firmware upgrade? Is there a setting I overlooked?

Re: security connectivity issues
Is the PC connection you're able to maintain once upgraded to WPA a PC that is physically connected to the router? if so, that would make sense because WPA (and WEP for that matter) are only wireless security protocols and have no protections for hard-wired connections.
In order to convert your system to WPA security, you must first make sure all of your hardware is WPA compatible (that isWPA Drivers are available for it).
For your PC wireless connection, if you're running Windows XP you can go to the microsoft website and download the WPA client. It is available in the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 815485. install the update and reboot. you will then be able to enable WPA security on your client.
Then you'll possibly need to update the drivers for your hardware for WPA support (router, wireless NIC, etc) if they did not already come enabled.
next you get to configure the router for WPA. you'll want to make sure you're set to WPA with preshared keys (no authentication server required), use TKIP as the algorhythm, and leave group key renewal at it's default value. and of course Select a key that is not likely to be guessed. write the key down as you'll need to configure your NIC using it.
to configure your NIC, once you're in the configuration menu select WPA-PSK for your authentication, TKIP for the encryption mode, in data encryption set it to TKIP, and in the network key put the key you selected earlier.
At this point you should be able to access your wireless router (or other access point). These instructions were kind of generic since i do not have the specific router you're using available to me, but the settings i discussed should be pretty universal when it comes to WPA security.

The first thing to do is reset the router. There is a button on the router that you press with a paper clip.You will then have to access the router with your browser and a cat5 cable connection to change all the settings that you might need to change for security. DHCP should be enabled and there should not be an issue with the number of concurrent connections.
Please follow the steps in order to resolve the issue:
1.Connect the wire (which is coming out from the modem) to the WAN/Internet port of the router. 2.Connect the computer to either of the four LAN ports of the router. 3.Turn on the router and press and hold the RESET button for 30 seconds and turn it off for another 30 seconds and turn it ON. 4.Type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of Internet Explorer and hit enter. 5.Leave the username blank and type admin in password.

you have to check if you have the wep key enabled. when you put in the wep key, it should also be enabled so that your wireless network should say security-enabled wireless network. make sure to disconnect and connect again on your network after changing the settings to refresh your connection.
hope this helps.
