I just put an older Powerbook G3 back in to service and it connects to the wireless internet at work but can't get it to connect at home. I am using a Lucent Technologies wireless card and the OS is 9.0. Any suggestions on how to connect to wireless at home?

At lease bring up the OS to 9.2.2 for a fighting chance.

My bet is the make of wireless router at home. I had no end of issues with D-Link and never connected but first time with Linksys.

As was suggested you should start with the following:

OS 9.1
OS 9.2.1
OS 9.2.2

Also after you complete the upgrade, don't for get to run the software update. That should pull in any missing enablers, and stuff.
