    Hi all,

    I have been trying to connect my g4 cube to my wifi and receive this issue: :the password you entered is not correct for the selected airport network."

    After some research, I discovered that it could be the wireless security but that ended up not being true as I switched from WPA2 to WPA and still received the same issue.

    Now my thoughts are simply to purchase a wireless adapter but have no experience with this. Has anyone gone down this path and have been successful?

    Thank you!

    What MacOS are you running? OS 9 or MacOS X ?

    I think the answer you need is here:

    So, if your wireless router can change to those settings you should be good to go.

    Otherwise, I don't have a recommendation for a third party dongle.

    airport does not play nice with newer apple routers when you turn off encryption and have it set to a/b. I suggest an older router hooked to an ethernet port on your current router as its the only luck I had, so basically setting up a new network.
