    I'm sure that somewhere in the thousands of posts here there may be an answer but so far havent found it yet .
    Ok , just updated a mac powerbook pismo g3 with an airport card ,internal one , updated airport software to 3.1.1 comp running osx 10.2.8 . comp sees the WRT54G , I updated the firmware to version 1.01.1 but will not connect . The comp will connect to the linksys in the house 300 feet + away as well as every other unprotected network driving through town but not this one at home . wifes powerbook G4 titanium running osx 10.3 will connect with no problem .when trying to connect it returns with There was an error joining the selected airport network .

    The same thing appears when entering the correct or incorrect password . Will not connect with or without WEP turned on .

    Is there anyone who can guide me through what needs to be done to get my powerbook online with it . Will connect with ethernet wire but not wireless.

    Oh , also a palm lifedrive will not attach to this either so any help with that would be appreciated also .

    Thank you

    Mac has issues with 1.01.1 AFAIK. Assign a static IP to the MAC (with or without WEP... remember to use $ symbol in front of the WEP key if u hv one) and it shd work.

    This issue aint there in 1.00.9.

    Been there done that still wont connect .

    Any other suggestions ?

    the linksys started out with 1.00.9 but would not connect so updated it last week to 1.01.1 and still no luck . Same reactions with both firmware options.

    Any suggestions of an affordable replacement for this that would have ethernet ports as well as wireless and work out of the box with airport card and airport extreem cards as well as windows wireless setups . Something that can be bought at brick and mortor comp usa , best buy or circuit city locations ?
