I recently got 10.04 running on my ibook powerpc g3 dual usb, and when I looked at the wireless networks in range, I couldn't select my home wireless network (it was greyed out), which is secured with WPA2.

Help D:

Probably means that either your network card doesnt support WPA2 (considering the age of a g3 that seems very plausible) or the driver doesnt support it. Id suggest changing the access point to WEP

P4man is correct. The original airport card (not the Extreme) can't do WPA. Only WEP works. Even that seems to be a challenge as I see many people trying to get a secured WEP connection. It will probably give a "bad password" problem. Good luck.
