You have to use the password for the G4.

It sounds as if he is not able to connect to the network wirelessly rather than trying to connect to the g4 from his new macbook. If that is the case, then you need to be sure that you are using the same kind of encryption for the passkey. You might want to back up a step and access your airport through the macbook while connected to it through ethernet cable. Change your encryption method to none and  make sure the ssid is being broadcast. Then save settings and disconnect from the extreme and see if you can now connect wirelessly with both computers. That will establish that there is nothing intrinsically wrong with your airport card in the g4. Then reconfigure your base station with whatever encryption you want and choose your password. Then retry your new password.

I can connect with my macbook, but not with my G4 power book. My internet provider suggested that
maybe is because I am running different software, one is leopard and the other tiger.

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

haha  that means go away we have no clue.
Did you try my suggestion of reseting the router to its default no security and then trying to connect. This would help eliminate hardware as an issue.

eh or try changing the SSID first and trying to connect on the other computers- depending on the security - mac like to remember things even if they are wrong :p changing the ssid is easier and faster then deleting the keychain file for the wireless

Depending on your Airport cards, your MacBook probably supports the 802.11g wireless standard (faster) and your PowerBook probably supports the 802.11b standard (slower). Be sure your Airport is configured to support both g and b standards.
