I'm having a problem with broadcom adapters not being able to connect to our 1240AG access points when using WPA-PSK. Other manufacture's adapters work just fine.

this problem could be old drivers or old chipsets that don't support the new encryption methods. have you gotten the latest drivers from the card manufacturer.

Some of the devices having the problem are new systems using the latest drivers and/or chipsets. It's all broadcom adapters that seem to have the problem.

I have to agree with the post about drivers regarding the Broadcom cards since most of my Broadcom problems were fixed with the new drivers. What is the version/date of the drivers you are using.

There is one other possible issue. It has been a long time since I saw this problem so I forget the exact details; however, there was a bug in the 1240 AP which caused client connect issues if you had WEP,TKIP, and AES enabled on the AP. Some clients would connect and others would not. I would not have seen this problem since I ususally don't use WEP, but I had to get one WEP device working and hit this bug.
