I was not anticipating it not being able to reach channel 11, so I set it to channel 1. Also, it cannot do 802.11n, so I set it to 802.11g. My cell phone seems to be able to use it.
Also, for some reason, my pogoplug syncs up to the same switch better than my laptop does. Using iperf on my laptop, I get a max of 95Mbps, yet on my pogoplug I get 180Mbps over the LAN. That is just too wierd.
