    I just bought a new iMac with an airport card. The rest of the computers in the house are pc's. I'm able to network with them with out a problem when I have a physical cable running to the iMac, but have no luck when I go wirelss. I'm able to pick up the signal, but it keeps asking for a password to log on to the network, and we don't have a password to log into the network. I'm running a linksys wireless b router and linksys cable modem. We tried entering in the WEP Key as the password, but it will not accept it. Any help would be great! Thanks

    had the same problem

    From what I can tell the passwords for wireless networks don't work cross platform or perhaps they need to be translated to the correct format.

    I bought a linksys wireless router and was unable to connect because the password didn't work on my mac. Unfortunately, my solution was to leave the router without password protection.

    Perhaps someone else has a better solution. Goodluck.
