My G3 powerbook running 10.3.9 had been connecting just fine to my Airport Extreme basestation - the white UFO shaped one ! This was using WEP security. Last week I needed to reset the basestation in order to get a new XP laptop to connect. At the same time I switched over to WPA security,
My G4 Desktop & Powerbook as well as a Vista and an XP laptop connect just fine. However, tonight I tried the old Lombard and it is failing to connect - it is not recognising the password. I can't for the life of me figure out how to reset the Lomabard's Airport to accept the WPA (personal) password.

Any ideas gratefully received

OK folks problem solved. The Powerbook only had Airport v3.1 installed. I updated to v4.2 and the option to input a password for a WPA Personal network was there and worked fine.
