I have finally decided tomorow is the day: I will get to pick up my very own, brand-new Apple PowerBook 17-inch! YAY. but, I have one final question, which Apple Store doesn't really answer that well for me: I currently have a 256-bit data-encryption wireless networking (D-Link). all the PC's in the house are connected. I am concerned only because on the internet, Apple seems to say that it will only work for : 40-bit hex 40-bit ASCII 128-bit hex 128-bit ASCII it never once mentions 256-bit. i was told when I purchased the set that 256-bit is not as common as 128-bit, but offers more security. is it possible for an Apple Airport Extreme card to connect to an encrypted 256-bit wireless network? i know for a fact that the network is a 802.11g. (pardon me- i'm not that techno-whiz when it comes to all the fancy language in computers!) i really need to know this by tonight (Apple Store for some reasons won't clearly answer me). because if it doesn't, then it [Powerbook] is completely out of the question. also, is the connection still fast when using an Apple AirPort wireless card in a PC-network? I am not too sure. thanks again!
