If you can't get it to work with 653, then this is likely to be a true
incompatibility. It would be good for you to post on various forums and
mailing lists to see if anyone else has this AP and have been able to
connect. Also, if no one has gotten it to work we would like to get the
exact make and model number to try and get it in  house and do some

Thanks for your help!
