The Operating System on the computer should not matter. With WRT54GS you can connect 33 computers wireless to the router. Whats the firmware on the router ? For updated list of firmwares for linksys devices, click here

For instructions to upgrade the firmware, click here

For help with Wireless Security, click here

And the wireless security on the router, i would suggest to use WEP 64 Bits.

Dont put the passphrase, into WEP key #1 type a 10 digit number.
it has to be only numbers and 10 digit long. Click Save Settings. And the 10 digit no is ur wireless password.
