I'm having some weird issues with my Powerbook G4 ( "PowerBook5,7", "PowerPC G4 (1.2)") connecting to my Airport Express at home. A few weeks ago I installed my brand new Airport Express at home and made a WPA Personal security password as recommended. Everything worked fine for a few days until one day my computer suddenly seemed to not find the signals anymore.
I tried all types of problemsolving from the book, but nothing seemed to help.
What confuses me is that my roommate (who also has a PowerBook G4, "PowerBook5,7" "PowerPC G4 (1.2)") has no problems connecting.. she gets the signals fine!!??
THEN, I reset my A.Express for open access again and got back on.. for a few days.
Then I suddenly lost all traces of the signals again!!?? My roomate is still happy going and my computer picks up all other signals from the neighborhood.
How can this be? I did nothing but turn my computer on and off and suddenly all signals are non traceable any longer..
I hope someone can help me, I am as you probably can see from my request not a computer literate exactly..
My G4 was bought in the U.S and my roomate's in Norway. On her computer the first security setting came up as a "WPA Personal" but my computer called the same one a "WPA2 Personal".. any hidden clues in this?
I have tried erasing all network history to let the computer search for new connections also, but all it picks up on again is my neighbors...
