Guys, it's the weirdest thing... on my Acer 6530 I'm able to logon to my Linksys Wireless router just fine, but on my MacBook it's just not happening.
Anybody know why?


QUOTE Thanks

The first thing that I would check would be to make sure that you are using the correct SSID (Network Name) and the correct password. If that doesn't work try removing the network from the computer (System Preferences -> Network -> Airport -> Advanced) and then add the network back to the MacBook. You could also try restarting all of the network hardware (router, modem, computers) and see if that works. Lastly, did you change any setting(s) on the router recently that could have messed up your MacBook's ability to connect to the network (i.e. a MAC address filter, etc.)?

Best of luck.
