I have a Belkin "Pre-N" wireless router. I have kept my network open in the past and everything has worked flawlessly.

Recently I have read how hiding SSID, using MAC address as well as WEP can all be fooled so I went with the WPA feature on the router. This works fine on my XP notebook but worked for a short time on my iMac. Now it won't work at all (iMac won't see network, let alone connect to it using the correct password), if I disable security it will pick up the wireless signal but not WPA.

Should I try WEP and figure good enough?
