I recently purchased the WAP4410N to be an accesspoint for guests in our building. We configured it with WPA2 personal secuirty and B,G,N Mix. It seems to be working for all of our clients with PC's, however we have had conncection issues with connecting the Macbook Pro and Iphones to this point. Today I even updated the firmware to 22.214.171.124 with no change. There has to be something in the setup that I did wrong, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I did a test with my iPhone and works fine with WPA-Personal and WPA2. but this is just as a simple Wireless Connection not using AP Mode Tab.

With the latest release of firmware for the WAP 561, 551, 371, 351 a new
feature was added that would allow customers to upgrade the firmware for
their clustered access points from the main access point.The basic steps
to accomplish this is:1) Download th...
Special thanks to Alex McDonald for sharing his favorite tip:My favorite
tip is the ‘write default’ command on autonomous wireless access points,
it simplifies manual conversion of a WAP with a static ip address to a
LAP with a DHCP address.This saved a l...
