I've got a problem connecting to my home network, but with the AirPort configuration program i succeeded in creating a WLAN network which is "seen" by my notebook, which is running windows vista.
Network Card: Netgear WN311B (PCI)
Router: Netgear DG834NB
MAC Filter (this shouldn't be the Problem, cause with windows vista, which is also installed on my computer i can connect easily to this network)
Mac OSX 10.5.5 (iDeneb v1.3 release) also shows the same MAC Adress for the network device as windows vista does.
WPA/WPA2 personal combination mode.
I followed the guide and added "<string>pci14e4, 4329</string>" to the kext file (this is what vista shows me in the device manager). The only problem was that i got an error while setting the permissions...
thanks for help, lg Bummskopf
Edit: after trying to access a network with my old router the zyxel prestige 660hw with no security options at all, i found out that it is working with it.
then i tried again with the netgear router, now with ssid broadcasting activated, the result was that i can see the network but not connect. Cause of this reason i removed the MAC Adress Filter, but it did not work (not a surprise).
This brought me to the conclusion that it is the WPA/WPA2 personal combination mode...
Does somebody know how i can access en encrypted network like this with Mac OS X?^^
Another question: when i was connected to the old zyxel router my network utility said that the standards a,b,g are supported, is this because it is this router? (this router does not support n draft, but my card WN311B does) i read about that in another thread but i cant find it anymore.
