Notice the bar icon on the sceenshot.
Anyhow, I'll update the first post to reflect this method when I have a moment.

But I think this has got nothing to do with the success of 10.4.8 kext connecting to secured wifi connections.

I don't know if others found out a way to connect to a secured wireless connection with the Tiger kext? ... but I think I have found a solution:
You have to use the 'Assist me' -> 'Diagnostics', to connect to your secured connection, it worked fine for me. I took the liberty to include screenshots in this post, so you can see how I did it...
The new kext method
.For 10.5.0, follow the same procedure, but edit the /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AirPortAtheros.kext
warning:w leo a lot of computers get this problem -consider this a "work in progress":
Unverified solution (please post here if you can confirm)
if anyone knows a fix that will persist through a reboot, please post!
sudo networksetup -setairportnetwork "your wifi name" "password"I don't know yet how to create a startup item, but I'll research this tomorrow. It's bed time for me. See you.
