    My powerbook G4 (running panther) has an airport card that will connect via ethernet to a d-link router but not wirelessly. I want to be wireless. I can obtain an IP address but can not ping or connect to the router or internet. The Airport gets full signal and says that i am connected. However, there is another wireless network from a netgear router that I can connect to quite easily.
    What is the difference?

    Please someone help...

    WEP mis-config? D-Link on same channel as Netgear?

    Have you tried logging into the D-Link and checking what the WLAN settings are?

    Can anyone else connect to the D-Link, or has it been working before with any other wireless connection?

    What IP are you getting? You sure its not a self-assigned one?

    usually routers dish out IPs in the form 192.168.x.x, what does yours look like?

    the ip address that is automatically given is 192.168.0.100
    which i think is a valid number.
    my roommate who is the administrator can see my mac address too...
