the procedures are identical as with any other wireless network on the face of the earth. the only difference is the type of router used.

I wish I would have known about this months ago.

Problem: Can not get windows vista to connect to Airport Express.

This actually works for the Nintendo Wii as well, it is a simple solution and it works.

Solution: Go into your airport administration utility (assuming you have a mac computer as well, I'm not sure of the equivalent in windows) , click on the router, then click configure. On the top menu bar click on password. A window will come at that says "Hex equivalent password (WEP)": XXXXXXXXXXXXXX...it is very long. Punch that in as the password. Bammmm! You're in.

Apparently other systems don't encode the wep password the same as apple computers do.

Good Luck.
QUOTE Thanks
