can't connect tablet to router

I have a wrt54gs linsys router with speedbooster.  I bought my son a tablet for xmas.  I cannot connect the tablet to the network.  It finds my network, searches for an IP address, and then disconnects.  It will connect for about 2 seconds, and then shows disconnected.  My PC's, and WII work fine, although getting the WII ad netflix to reconnect after a power outage is like rocket science requiring field support every time.  My tablet wont stay connected, and the book tells me that the router must accept 802.11b/g, and that if it has 802.11n, then it needs to be reconfigured to accept 802.11b/g.  Is this my problem?  I cannot find anything on the router except 802.11G.  What can I do?

Why? Do you have wireless security on your network? Are you being asked for it when you connect?


This might help..
