    So I just moved into an apt. and we just got internet access. We hafta go wireless however because of space.

    Now i'm trying to secure my linksys WRT54G router with WEP/WPA and everytime my roommate goes to connect he types in the shared key the mac wireless thing says "there is an error" and won't let him connect. I know I'm retarded but can someone help me out here? I'm just not a mac guy. He is running version 10.3.9 of panther.

    What am I doing wrong?

    First of all, are you using WPA ore WEP? That may be your problem.

    I've tried both. I would prefer to use WPA.

    I remember readding something in the apple discussion forums about people having issues.
