Wireless Dongle Connectivity

Netopia Wireless Router
First, I have not done any firmware updates in any of the equipment. I used the dongle in the TV and it connected to the internet without trouble. Moved the dongle to the 1600 and have tried connecting without success. The 1600 recognizes the network exists but fails to connect, regardless of the setting on the 1600 or on the router. I have tried all options of encryption for connecting (WEP, WPA, WPA2 and open). When trying WPA or WPA2 modes, the 1600 wouldn't even attempt to connect versus WEP and open where it would attempt and fail. I have also used auto IP and have manually enetered the IP, DNS, Gateway, etc.
Will a firmware upgrade help here or are there other problems I need to fix?
Also, spent about an hour on the phone with the ISP tech without success.
