In the upper right hand part of the screen, click on the WiFi icon (looks like a broadcast signal).  Select "Join Other Network."  Put in your network name and password.  They are printed on your router.  If it asks you for the type of encryption, select WEP, which is the most likely default encryption.  Once you have done this, when you will be on your network.  When you shut down and restart, the mac should remember than network as your default network.

If the above doesn't work, download this from Etresoft:




Open it, and let it scan. Then click "Copy To Clipboard". Then paste and post the results in a new post (Not quoted).


It is a "System Profiler" (similar to Speccy on Windows), that lets me know the hardware of your machine as well as your networking info.
