    My home network is a 3com wireless router.

    My iMac is connected wirelessly and I have an Airport express wirelessly connected to the router.

    Recently I chaned the encryption on the network to WPA (from WEP)

    Since then, the express has a habit of losing connection to the network. If I unplug/replug the express it connect again.....

    Anyone know why?!

    I have a 63 digit key

    I have used 'WPA-PSK(no server)' on the router

    'WPA Personal' on the iMac

    'WPA Personal2' on the express

    Thanks

    If there are issues, your 3com router might have some funky issue with authorizing the Airport Express. Try setting the Airport Express to WPA only (not "WPA or WPA2"). If that doesn't work, just revert to WEP, unless you are really that worried about someone hacking your network, in which case your Macs would still probably be safe.

    As far as I can see I can only select WEP or WPA2 Personal....?
