    airport help
    Hey guys. I finally made the switch from pc to mac. and im super happy.

    Just one problem. i cannot seem to connect to a certain wireless connection.
    i have no problem connecting to my home network off of a Linksys router with WEP encryption (128bit). but when i try to connect to the network at the office, i keep getting told that my password is incorrect.

    the office network is off of a D-Link Router and uses WPA encryption. the ssid of the network shows up in the drop down menu when i click on the airport network, i put in the password and it doesnt connect. I noticed that there are 4 different types of WPA security settings, not sure which one to pic.

    when i try connecting with my PC laptop, all i had to do was put in the password, no user name...

    any help would be great. thanks guys.

    This is a shot in the dark, but try putting a # (pound) sign in front of the password (eg: #password). This forces the password to a hex conversion, and helps with some wireless routers.
