    I have a Linksys four port wireless router of the 802.11b flavor. it works flawlessly with my assorted macs on Airport, and other wireless cards.
    I was fortunate to be a prod new owner of a 1.25 powerbook and it has APE. It see my network, but I cannot access the net, my local machines, or shared printers. It is able to see when i turn off all security, and when I have my network closed, I can find it ok.
    My normal airport works fine with DHCP, so why will this APE not work with my set up?

    I have a similiar setup and have a 12 inch powerbook with a wireless extreme card. In order to get it to work, I had to enter my 128 bit WEP key as a hex number. Then everything was fine. I also had to enter the SSID manually because I turned off the SSID broadcast from the router (strongly recommended).

    Good luck
