    Hey, I can't get our G3 iBook to connect to our AirPort network anymore. It's the last-gen AirPort Extreme base station (domey type with a modem) and I've successfully used our wireless security in the past.

    We use WPA/WPA2 Personal with a 40 character password. The iBook has worked before with this configuration, and it works when there is no security set up, but even though our town is filled with computer illiterates and there are only 2,000 of them, I'd like security.

    What should I do? Thanks.

    Anyone? I haven't tried WEP, but it's cake to crack, so I don't want to, anyway.

    Power cycle base station, see if another device can connect to it? Update Airport basestation software (firmware)?

    Restart iBook? See if iBook can connect to another network?

    Depends on OS version, you might need to choose the proper WPA setting otherwise it won't work, you might want to try different WPA choices.
