Hi there,
I have a dual 1 GHz PowerPC G4 running 10.5.8.
I just had an airport card installed and the computer is recognising my wireless network. However when I try and connect with the network , I firstly enter wpa password, then the computer either says 'connection failed' or 'administrator'.
I took it to a local computer repair shop and it connected to his network no problem.

Can you help me?

cheers simon
