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!!!
Thanks!!

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.
