My powerbook won't locate my network at home, while other computers do.
I have a Powerbook and when I'm at home I cannot locate/connect to my home's local network (airport express). Both my parents have Macbooks and they connect with out any problem. It's frustrating since I am able to locate to all the networks in my neighborhood, but not the one in my house. Any suggestions?

Try this program, it should show all the networks in the area and if you home one doesn't show up but the others do then you might need to move closer to the access point, or the SSID broadcast could be turned off. http://www.macstumbler.com/
If you know the name of the wireless access point you can input it and you should get connected. If you have the Wireless connection in the bar at the top, choose Join Other Network, and type in the name to connect.

Thats the issue. I know the network at the house is not closed. My brother can bring in his Macbook and pick up the network right away.
I have also tried to locate the network, by "joining another network" via the network preferences and typing in the name and password. All i get is a connection timeout.
