Hi,

I have an airport express, which my Mac connects to perfectly well via ethernet. I have a PC which only says "low connectivity" to the network (although, there is really NO connection). I entered the password correctly etc. The airport express is in WEP format.

Any ideas? I've already tried changing the channels on the AE, but nothing seems to help.

Thanks in advance.

Wow strange it might be a bad antenna on either the pc or the airport. But I can't say for sure, so here are some things that might help you.
Apple - Support - AirPort + Time Capsule

AirPort: Potential sources of interference

Thanks. If that doesn't help I'll call apple support and let you know how it turns out.

I called apple support. Solution: Change PC wireless settings (Windows Vista) to TKIP rather than AES.
