First, hello to all, and glad to have found this forum. I hope someone with more knowledge can help. My Gear: Mac PowerPC G4 w/ dual 1.4s Mac Powerbook G4 (single 1.33) Cable internet (Road Runner) Cable plugs into Netgear wireless router, then to desktop My Problem: New Mac Powerbook, which I just purchased today, "finds" the signal, as I can see the name of the network. However, I can't get on the network or otherwise use the signal. I think it's because I don't remember the password, or the guy that set it up for me encrypted it, or something. I don't know. Question: Is it worth the cost of having my tech guy back to my house to get the signal to work with new powerbook? Should I just buy the airport with that 54 set-up? Any suggestions on troubleshooting my present problem. For example, can I find the info I need on the desktop G4 that I need to make the powerbook work. Very frustrating. Thanks, Scott BTW: The powerbook I bought today is the 17". Beautiful, but I feel a little like mini-mi in the commercial with the thing on my lap. Still, big enough for all the board and committee meetings I attend for demos.
