    Just got a new MacBook, when I try to join my home network, it won't let me type letters (the keyboard stops working) after the first letter of my password. The first letter of my password is $, then it won't let me type most letters after that. For example, I can type $c or $s, but if I try to type $u the 'u' won't show up. :confused:

    I've read a lot of threads about putting a $ before your password, but this is a little different for me. We're using the Verizon FIOS router that comes with the modem (I think it's a D-Link built in).

    Any suggestions?

    This is wierd because both my old MacBook and the other MacBook in my house haven't had any problems with this...

    can you type it in another program and then copy-paste it into the password dialog box?
