    What are you using for an access point? Cause if it is anything other than an Airport Base Station, the encryption won't work, and you will not get it to work. At least from what I have read. But with most AP's you can control the MAC address's that are allowed to use the base station. Which is what I have done.

    I have a D-Link DI-614+ router, and a DWA-900AP+ AP. The encryption seems to work fine. I got it all workin in a matter of minutes. I am supposed to be able to download at 22mb/s with this, but I am only managing to pull down 11 which is standard. I have the "Enhanced" model, and it said 22mb/s. I must not be doing something right. Oh well, it will just take me 3 hours to move 5.6gb of movies from across my network. DoH!

    That is my setup as well, and I just recently encrypted our network. Works perfectly.

    Just tried it on my Linksys access points, and my iBook will not connect to the wireless network with the correct password. Maybe I need a firmware update, I will look into that.

    Hmm, mine worked just fine. I have D-Link though .. I tried 256bit encryption, but it didn't work, seems the powerbook only supports up to 128bit HEX , so I went back to that and it worked fine.

    when you go to connect, did you tell your mac that it was a 128 hex key, not a password? i fumbled for a bit with this one too at first.

    I told it 128 bit Hex w/password. The password is the hex key, ie. hex is 00000000000 password is 00000000000.

    ..I am alomost positive thats how it worked for me. Really tired right now, hence the reason i am not 100% sure
    I will double check tomorrow when I get back from class and will post what works.

    Ahh yes, if your router is set up as 128-bit hex, then use 128-bit hex on your laptop. and then type in the numbers that you have entered in your router for the 128-bit hex. ie. 0000000000, then add 0000000000 in the box.
