hi, i bought a macbook pro yesterday and have tried to get on to my wireless network that i have in my house.

When i click on the airport simbol in the top i click on join netgear network

it then asks me for my key or password, i then enter this and it tells me there is an error and can't connect

i have accessed my router through my pc which is connected through ethernet and my sisters laptop connects fine wirelessly

i have changed averything that needed changing in the router setup page
i have checked wpa-psk and set up a key code and this does not work with my mac

i have also disabled the security and still get the same message.

i am just wondering if i need to configure the airport and if so how? there are no signal bars appearing on the icon.

please help!

Is there an Airport firmware update, or software update? I think 6.3 is the most current version, and it certainly would cause this type of issue.
