I recently bought an Airport card for my Ibook and am trying to connect to the Airport express connection the rest of my family are already on. my ibook is showing that the Bt connection is there but wont accept the password used by the other computers.My Ibook is 800mhz and runs OSX10.24, the other computers are a G4 IBook with OSX10.3 and a Dell PC both are around the same age and have inbuilt cards, the wireless connection operates with Airport express and a ADSL D- Link Router. I was wondering if it might be something to do with the operating system my older Ibook is on and whether updating my system to 10.3 would help? If any one has any advice or ideas I'd love to hear em!!
Muchos Gracias

Welcome, Carly.

I know (maybe) enough about iBook to make this one post.

Is the network using WPA or WEP encryption? I think that Airport Express supports WPA, but Airport does not. I don't know what is the earliest OS version that supports WPA.

If WEP is being used there is no guarantee that all devices will translate a password the same way. Best to use Hex key(s).
