Hello Tony,

The Lucent WaveLAN/IEEE setup is as follows:

Mode: Infrastructure
Channel: 1 (Ignored)
SSID: David
WEP Key: string use WEP unchecked
the password of my local network

Nothing checked in Advanced Setting

You write, "Set the router to Open System, rather than Shared Key." I
take it this is an AirPort setting? I shall have to check that, but I
assume it is so, as visitors can use the AirPort with no problem
(after Joining, of course).

What I find particularly worrying is the -48404 error. All I can
discover is that it is an "Expected a number" error, which gets me
nowhere! Do "conflicts" exist between Newton software? Perhaps I
should clear everything off and start from scratch!
