Hi. New Mac user here.

I currently have a home network set up in my house, running 2 PC's connected to a Dlink Dual Band N (DIR-628) router. Both PC's are ethernet connected for work. I have an Intel I-Mac downstairs which I am trying to connect wirelessly to the same network. I turn Airport on, and it is finding the network name. When I type in the password which I set up when configuring the router for the first time, it says "network requires WPA password", and I get a connection timeout.

When I setup the router, I set it up for WPA, and there is only one password which I was ever prompted for. I'm using that password on the MAC, but it keeps giving me the same message.

any thoughts?

thanks very much.

Ok, I figured it out. I am such a noob.

For anyone else reading this that might be experiencing the same thing, its not the password you want, it's the security key.

sorry for being a tool.
QUOTE Thanks
