    Green light never appears?

    Is this the icon by the clock? There should be two small blobs that should be transparent, the first one lights green when it finds the network. The second one lights when you are authenticated.

    I presume you are providing the incorrect credentials, or you're selecting an incorrect type of authentication such as a WEP/WPA etc.You should check what your router likes and select that.

    Hope this helps.

    Check your routers settings, it may have MAC address filtering enabled! simply type the MAC (Media Access Control; not the apple computer) that is on your wireless card in and allow it. hope this helps!
