Trouble connecting Airport Extreme Card to existing Wi-Fi Network

Hello experts,

I'm trying to connect a Power Mac G4 with an airport extreme card to an existing home wirless (wi-fi) network running off a linksys wireless G router but I can't get the Mac to see the network at all.  The airport status indicates that airpor is on but not associated with a network.  I've tried connecting, using the other network option and entering the WEP key info but I get an "error connecting to network' message.  I'm pretty sure I'm using the most recent version of airport software and I updated the firmware on my wireless router to the most recent version. I tried disabling the wep and was still not able to see the network.  Any other suggestions?  Thanks.

Ed

Try putting a dollar sign in front of the WEP key.

Thanks. I tried that before I decided to disable wep altogether and neither worked.

Did you install the card yourself? Did you make sure you connected the antenna properly?

It did turn out to be an antenna issue.  The card is working great now! Thanks.
