    Linksys WRT54G -- help!
    I have a new Linksys WRT54G version 6.0 software and I have a major problem (or I think it's a major problem...)

    I can connect to it with my MacBook Pro ONLY if I am using Windows. Any time I try to load OS X and enter the password it tells me "There was an error joining the AirPort network..." I tried setting the Airport settings under sharing to accept WEP encryption... what am I missing? I just want this router to work...

    Try putting a $ in front of the WEP key.

    Wow. I can't believe it was that easy. Thank you, D3v1L80Y. Now I can go sleep sound in the knowledge that I have an encrypted wireless network.

    Linksys has released a firmware upgrade for the WRT54G v5 and v6 that should fix the problem. Apparently there was an issue in the way the router assigned IP addresses to Mac clients.

    I tested it out using my Intel and PPC computers. The new firmware seems to fix the problem.
