Yes, it's true.

Just recently I was reading a router's web page about this. The router maker admitted to the but and had new router firmware. Check with Linksys for updated firmware.

Thanks, I have the WRT110 and can't seem to download the firmware update. It's an older update, maybe I just need a new router.

Sorry but the choice of "question" really hampers a discussion where I might suggest the Networking forum settings.

Wi-Fi setting

Well I think you need to see your Wireless setting as to how many devices it allows to connect to Wi-Fi at one time. May be it does not allow more than 2. Increase that number.
