    I have an old Mac tower 867mhz running 10.3 ?? when I attempt to connect to the interject via Airport card it won't connect after entering the password I get a " Connection error timeout" and another message that reads " Your WPA networks are not available. However, my MacbookPro Ox X 10.9.4 connects with no problems??!!?? How can I fix this ???????

    What type of encryption are you using?

    Airport cards are pretty much limited to WEP and WPA/TKIP networks. They won't connect to WPA networks using more advanced encryption.

    To expand on what Bunns is saying. you need to make sure your router is using TKIP encryption. AES encryption will cause the exact problem you are having.
