My new MBP arrived yesterday but i'm having difficulty connecting to my wireless network. I've played around a bit but was unable to connect - and it wouldnt accept my WEP password either. Then sitting in my bed last night it connected, albeit at a very slow connection, for about 5 minutes, and i have no idea how. However this morning it is back to not workling again. I'm not an experienced mac user so any help would be appreciated.

Check this post and read what I told the user. See if that maybe why it will not take your WEP Password.

Thanks dtravis7 that's exactly where i was going wrong. God i feel stupid. Thanks a lot.

It's working perfectly now, however i just shut the mbp down and restarted it to see if it would connect straight away but i had to go through the same procedure before it connected to the internet again. How do i get it to save the settings and connect automatically as soon as i log in?

Thanks again.

yeh that's working now. Thanks for your help. For future reference, if i take the mbp to a hotspot will it automatically find the signal or will i need to actively search for it?

It should find the Hot Spot automatically, but if not, click on the AirPort icon up by the clock and select the HotSpot and it will connect.
