Mac Error Joining Airport Network

This will keep out pretty much anyone from your wireless network. I dont want to keep my network open and unsecure, so the problem keeps bothering me. After saving the settings -- even if no actual changes were made -- AirPort access is restored in some cases. His setup went flawless, and all was fine since Christmas.

Close Yeah, keep it Undo Close This video is unavailable. Note that this workaround will require you to re-enter network configuration settings and may cause other lapses in functionality. Since I'm not that good with macs, I don't want to try anything that will make the situation worse. I'll try the $ symbol before the wep key.

Another solution is to open the "Internet Connect" app, choose the "AirPort" tab and in the "Network" pull-down menu, choose "Other".

The only reason I can see for this problem is the way the Airport card establishes communication with the router. These are actually secure, whereas WEP is nearly trivial to break within minutes.

Will it help if I reformat my mac? then when i try to reconnect, i just receive the error message "there was an error joining the Airport network...". I bought my first Mac 2 days ago and after working with my existing wifi at home (WPA) for one day, it started acting up. There's got to be something wrong inside the iMac.

What has me a bit puzzled is that when I view the Airport under System Profiler, it shows the Airport as 2.0, which is too old to work with WPA encryption. You will be prompted for your WEP or WPA password if one exists.
