Connecting Wirelessly via Mac OS X

Specs: Macintosh OS X 10.8.4
Belkin F9J1102v2 Serial # 1231HF2201927 new item. Connecting to Macintosh Computers and iPad and iPhone. Spent multiple hours trying to consistently get a wireless connection either through customers New(est) 15" Macbook pro or my 2012 Macbook Air. Problem is that it wont connect wirelessly but will connect via ethernet. When trying to connect wirelessly it sees the network and then times out. I am using the default password (aa8d4649) that came with the router, which has been replaced because of this problem. Comps are running 10.8.4 with all updates to date. It may work for a day, or two and then it goes off. I have tried disabling the 5GHz network and just using the 2.4 (Customer has to use 2.4 network because his printer doesn't connect to 5Ghz). Router is right next to computers. Strangely enough clients kindle device WILL connect to the network from her bedroom which is about 50 feet away). If I disable all wireless networks, computer continues to operate on ethernet only (which one would expect). I have replaced telephone cable and internet filter with new items.I have tried (twice) reverting to default value and setting up again from cold. I have read the manual carefully and have not been able to establish and info that will solve the problem. I respectfully request your help.

Don't try to set up or use wireless on the Mac with ethernet cable plugged in to it at the same time.

Yes I was aware of that but unfortunately, ethernet was the only way it would connect. I found a temp fix which is to degrade the security to 64 bit from WPA2 personal but thats not a real solution. Thanks for the reply
