    Newbee here, hello to all........
    Also newbee to Mac my girlfriend has one. Trying to get her Mac to connect to the internet vid D-Link router. When I click on my wireless the box that comes up shows a place to enter a password and i do so but the connect button is not active only the cancel button is active? What am I doing wrong? Did find another box that gives about 6 choices of connection types this is greek to me. In the list of wireless connections there is one unsecured and it does connect to it.
    Thanks.

    Sounds to me like it's expecting more characters in the password (I know mine requires 8) - try entering a couple more digits to see if it enables the connect button
