    I arrived in Germany yesterday as a foreign exchange student and I have one huge problem: my macbook cant connect to the internet. My macbook can find my host families network, but when I try and put in the password, it says I am putting in the wrong password and I dont understand why. Additional details: I'm running mac os x lion, I have the latest version of the macbook pro, and the it is a devolo router that the family has. also, my macbook says the network requires a WPA2 password.

    I appreciate all of your help! I have 2 months to get my college apps in and I can't have this of all things keeping me froming going to college!

    If your running OS X Lion, perform an update. Hopefully, that solves your wi-fi connection/drop problems.

    Pretty hard to do a software update without Internet access.

    You will also will require an usb to Ethernet adapter.

    MacBook Pro, not Air. All MacBook Pros have a built-in Ethernet jack.
