hi folks.

i've just installed an old airport card in my g4(dual), which the machine recognizes..

what i can't do is pull the plug on the ethernet cable in order to go wireless... no amount of fiddling and faffing with the airport nor the vpn settings(should i be faffing with the vpn settings?) seems to help..

i'm being asked for a WEP password, (which i don't think i even have), and the network name, (i've used the router's IP address)..

still no joy.

i either get an error message or at best with the vpn it stays 'connecting' without actually making contact.

the router is a belkin 54g - model f5d7630-4a... if anyone has any suggestions or a web link i can look at, please let me know..

cheers

ah.. the irony isn't lost..

but there's that little wire you have to plug into the card before you go wireless.

doh!
