Connecting an Apple to my wireless network

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Y2hyaXMgcw==?=, Apr 5, 2006.

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I have a wireless network at home that my 4 XP laptops use constantly.
    Currently, it is not a secured wireless network. I want to secure it. From
    reading the other posts, I think I can manage to secure it, however, how will
    that affect my wife's Apple laptop which also needs to connect to the
    wireless network. What settings do I need to make on the Apple (OS X) to
    allow her computer access to the network as well as to be able to share
    documents on her hard drive?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It won't be any different with the Apple than with the Windows machines.
    Whatever wireless management software she uses on the Apple will see
    your wireless network and ask for the key to be entered. You'll enter
    the key and the Apple will be online.
