How to connect a SMC2635W Wireless Card to an Apple Airport wireless network.
When you first try to connect to an Apple Airport with WEP enable the SMC Wireless card displays the error: Unable to connect.

Hmm.

No further explanation.

The reason is that you need to plug in the WEP password into the SMC software to allow it to connect to the Airport.

This is what you have to do:

1. Open the Apple Airport Utility and note the password that non Apple users must use. That means PC users. It looks something like this:

I'm not kidding you, it really looks something like that.

Next, go over to your SMC software and key that into the KEY field.

APPLY the change and you'll be able to connect to the Airport WEP network.
