I am having problems connecting some HTC smartphone devices to a CISCO 851W router. The devices receive the SSID but when we try to connect to the router they can't. The router works well for other devices (latops, PDAs) and the smartphones have worked well with a Linksys router, so the problem is specific to this the conncetion between this router and this devices.

Any help about this is welcomed.

Can you post some of the logs on your 851W?

What parameters are you using? (WEP / WPA {TKIP | AES}) etc ...

My 8525 didn't work well using AES. TKIP was OK.

It hardly worked at all with the factory / MS mobile drivers. I added Odyssey (now from Juniper ~US$35.00)and it connected nearly every time, and even worked with EAP-FAST.

Good Luck
