I've never been able to get my Verizon-supplied MI424-WR to work with my 
MP2100 with a WaveLAN Gold. I have, however, managed to connect to an 
AirPort Express with 128-bit WEP. The only two solutions I've found in 
the last two years are disabling encryption entirely or trying a 
different router.
