    i received a white iBook G3 500 with an airport card. i am running an SMC7004AWBR Barricade wireless router. i am running 64 bit WEP encryption. in TCP/IP control panel, i select airport card, then dhcp. the machine picks up an ip address from the router, but i don't know where or how to enter the WEP key, and i can't get on the internet. any ideas?

    thanks in advance for your time,

    when you join the network it will ask you for a password. if it doesnt than wep isnt turned on on your router.

    I'm not sure Airport can do 64 bit. I know for 128 bit I have to enter the key by starting it off with a $ sign.
