    Hey all!

    I seem to have som, or more A problem with my MacBooks AirPort:

    When im at my at my in-laws house, my MacBook wont connect to their D-link Wifi network... It says "Wrong password" or "Timeout in connection" ALL the time!
    And the odd thing are:

    1: My MacBook connects PERFECTLY to other wifi networks like my own, my dads, my school and my moms!

    2: my iPhone and all other things like, their PS3, a iPod Touch, PCs and my BF's MacBook Pro connect with out any problems!!!

    Does anybody have a solution to this?

    Its kinda pissing me off, that i have to either drag i million feet long cable through the house, or have to use a USB modem (witch is about 2 mb/s and not 20 mb/s)

    Try putting a $ sign in front of the password when you enter it. Let us know if that worked or not.

    Your MacBook and BF's MacBook Pro - the same OS and are both set to Location - Automatic? Apple menu for Location.

    Ok try setting up a new location for your in laws place and make sure you enter the DNS numbers for their ISP and then when you visit select that location and when u leave go back to auto. Try it with Using DHCP and IPv6 off and see how that goes.
