Dear expertise
I brought a MacBook 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS10.4.10 cannot use the wirless via router.  However, when I installed the Window xp in my macbook, I can connect with the wireless via the same router (the security mode has WEP, WPA Pre-shared key & WPA radius), .  I reset the router in no Encryption, reset, let the macbook (in window xp) access the internet, and then change the router in WEP.  Finally it can connect!  But in OSX , it still doesn't work.
Please give me some advice.  Thanks a lot!
Use WPA preshared key instead of WEP. WEP can be cracked within a few minutes. Plus with WPA you really just have to enter the passphrase from the router on the Mac. It is not so complicated compared to WEP.
With WEP you cannot use the passphrase from the router on the Mac. You have to enter the WEP key. Use the first WEP key. Also make sure that you have selected transfer key 1 if the router has this option.
On the Mac you have to enter the WEP key with an "$" sign in front. This tells the Mac that you enter a hexadecimal WEP key, e.g. $A1B2C3D4E5
