It's been a few days since a power surge killed my network card. Ever since I have been trying to set up a wireless network. I have an Aria Extreme cardbus adapter and an AEBS. Initially I had a DI-624 router but could not get the WPA connection working, so I gave in and bought the AEBS. Everything started promising. I ran the set up assitant, everything was looking good. I used the admin program to get all the security stuff set up, everything was looking good. I'm getting a signal on the card and on the base station. I try to get on the net, nothing........ I am really at wits end here. I have reset the base station, started over, same thing. Under sys prefs/network settings it says I am connected to the net using airport. Could it be some sort of DHCP issue with my cable modem? I use Comcast. And since my network port got fried, I am using a D-Link PCMCIA ethernet adapter to get on the net wired. Sorry for the lack of info, but I am so frustrated at this point I can't think clearly.
