    Hi all in need of some help here.

    I have a new router ( Belkin ) connected to my cable modem.

    I have it setup for Dynamic IP like my ISP uses, security is WPA/WPA2 - Personal PSK ( WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK )


    Basically my pc and other Windows laptop of my partners finds and connects to the network, the MacBook see's the network but it seems to have issues sending the passkey, it just either comes up as "connection timeout" or it accepts it and cannot connect to any website I attempt to.

    Totally stumped here.

    Have you tried with other wireless networks? Preferably other passworded networks if you can find any.

    No other networks in my area, and I doubt i'd know any of their codes ;)

    Well when it does connect the speeds from speedtest.net are woeful to say the least, If I am lucky I may get 700kbs... my normal speed from my less than rubbish ISP are around 7-8MB from my 20MB connection.

    Is it possible at all my Airport card is on it's way out?
