House network not accessible after upgrade to Leopard
I hope I have the correct forum here.
I have just upgraded from OSX (10.4.Y) Tiger to OSX (10.5) Leopard and everything went really well ..... except for just one thing! My computer (iMac24) will not now access my local network through my Netgear (wireless) router ... it's asking for a password that I do not seem to know!
Just to explain briefly ... my house network consists of my iMac24, PC shuttle, PC laptop and 2 printers. My broadband provider is TalkTalk, which I have had no problems with. Currently everything works OK ... in the sense that all computers can access the internet and both PCs can access my iMac. However, when I login on my iMac, I am told that "None of your preferred networks are available. Select the network you want to join from the list". The list shows the various wireless networks in my immediate neighbourhood ... including Netgear. When I select it, it asks for a password ... and will not accept anything I key in. I have been just cancelling this and carrying on ... without access to my network. I might just add, that I can happily access my Netgear router/modem via its IP address through my browser and of course to do this I have a login and password which it happily accepts!
The ironic thing is ... I am not actually using the Netgear wirelessly at all ... all my network hardware is hard-wired to it!
Should I revert to using my previous (trusty) non-wireless PTI PAE-CE64?
Can anyone suggest a solution?
Many thanks ... in anticipation
