I Cannot connect multiple laptops to my wireless network

by KVN76 / June 30, 2008 7:19 PM PDT

Hi network experts, I am having problems with my wireless network. I have a Linksys WAP200 connected to my speedstream 4200 ADSL modem. I have set WPA security on the linksys. When I connect one wireless laptop I get internet access, when I connect a 2nd laptop this one gets internet access but the 1st one stops. Any help would be much appreciated.

That's a WAP, not a router.
