    i've just got my sister a emac G4 1ghz

    i installed the airport extreme card from my G5 cos she wants it in her bedroom but it's not connecting to the router,

    my router is a Thomson TG585 V7

    i never had this problem with old airport, it only seems to be with extreme
    although the card was connecting to the network from my g5 was basically inches away from it, the Emac is on the floor about 2ft away i goto connect and it just keeps timing out, i've made sure the wpa key is correct and even tried manually entering the network config details but to no avail, is there any hope ?

    Are you sure the wireless router is transmitting the right wireless signal compatible with the Mac? If the router is wireless N and the Mac is wireless G, the router will need to be in the mixed signal mode.
