    I have a WiFi network set up using Linksys WRTG54 router with WEP 128 bit encryption and SSID broadcast is disabled. I am not able to wirelessly connect to the router from my Powerbook G4 running Mac OS X 10.2.8.
    I am not able to connect to the network by typing in name of the network in the "Closed Network Name" and I choose 128-bit ASCII and type in the password Details about the password set up: On the Router, I type in a alphanumeric "Passphrase" and it then gets converted to a Hex code - I typed the "Passphrase" on the network connect dialog box).
    Not sure whether my Airport card needs a firmware upgrade - The Apple System Profiler diplays only "Flags" and "Ethernet address" for the card but no other detail.
    I am able to connect fine when encryption is turned off on the Router.
    I am a newbie to Mac and any help would be appreciated.

    looking through rose-tinted spectacles...
    Are you putting a $ in front of the hex code?
