Hi everyone, I bought a new MacBook (2 GHz, Core 2 Duo) this past weekend, and it works great, except for one problem -- I can't get it to connect to my wireless network at home. Airport recognizes the network/router, but when I enter the WEP key to get access, the MacBook always tells me that there's an error connecting to the network. I've spent a lot of time searching this forum and the support forums at Apple.com, and it seems that there are some compatibility issues between some wireless routers and the latest Macs, but I've found no solution. Here's what I've tried so far: 1. The WEP key on my router is ten digits, grouped in twos (so, e.g., 01 02 AB CD 78 EF). When entering the WEP key on the MacBook, I've tried placing a $ in front of it. I've also tried placing the WEP key in quotes. This is suggested in Apple's online documentation. 2. That didn't work, so I tried various formats -- $ and quotes, spaces, no spaces, etc., and no luck. 3. The wireless router I'm using is an Actiontec provided to me by Verizon. My Windows PCs run perfectly fun on it. I called Verizon for help and, well, let me just say this: if you've ever had to call Verizon tech support, you know how, in most cases, your problem only intensifies. Within minutes, even my PCs couldn't connect to the router. So I hung up with them and reconfigured my router so it would work again. 4. I called AppleCare. According to the rep, if the WEP key doesn't work at all, I need to contact the manufacturer of the router. 5. Actiontec's online support says that I have to follow Apple's instructions for formatting the WEP HEX key for Airport ... so, back to Apple's online instructions to use the $ or quotes ... except that doesn't work. 6. I've also tried using the other WEP options in Airport (HEX, ASCII), and no luck there either. 7. I also checked to see if the problem is the Airport card itself, but I took the MacBook to my university where there's free wi-fi, and I was able to connect easily. So now I'm not sure what to do, and I really need to connect my MacBook to my home network wirelessly. Do any of you have suggestions? Thanks!
