    Hooked up to my G3 clamshell is a D-Link USB wireless network adapter. With my PC i just go to establish a wireless network connection and setup to automatically connect to my network connection. I am really horrid with networking, so I didn't encrypt the connection or password protect it because well, I don't know how... But I have had to type in my connection name for it to appear otherwise my PC can't find it. So, how can I do this with my Mac?? Is there some kind of wireless network wizard I can use and just type in my network name to get automatically connected or is it al lot more complicated?

    I had difficulty hooking up my mini and laptop pc to Linksys as well; although I had best results installing the software and setting up the mac first, then installing the software and notebook card to the pc, letting the hp notebook find the network on its own...
