Ibook G3 Airport card compatiblity problems
I recently purchased a G3 ibook from USA. I am in the Uk and have managed to connect to wi-fi internet at home, but when I go to the studio I cannot connect. The network does show up, then I enter the password and it keeps saying "password is incorrect". But it isn't - so is there a problem with the compatibility of my Airport card and is there anything I can do?
Below is the spec of my laptop.
Any help will be enormously appreciated - I am not very techy so I'm not familiar with a lot of the terms, just to warn you!!!

You'll need to tell us what kinda of encryption your WiFi network is using.
If it's WEP type, you'll have to enter a $ before the password to get it to work. If it's WPA/WPA2, the old AirPort cards may not support that standard without a software update.
