Chances are you are using OS X 10.4.11 or lower, when you connect with that version of the OS, the default connection to a wireless network is WEP, but if the network requires WPA or something else you have to manually select it, then put the password in.

Add a apple computer to our network

When you opened the box and switched the mac on for the first time, After you have had the dinky introduction video and the request for your language of choice, one of the first things it would have done is scanned for wireless networks and shown you all that it could see. It would then ask you to chose which one to use and (if necessary) type in its password.
That, normally, is all you do. From then on the mac logs in to the network automatically.
It would probably be a good idea if you could explain what happens or how you are trying to add the mac to the network, because normally it's a couple of mouse clicks and typing a password.

Macbook 13.3" won't log in to wireless

You need to check your network card software your problem may lay there. I've seen this problem many times in the passed. I will install a wireless network card or software on someones computer and two days later it will not connect everything looks fine. No matter what I do it will not connect. Remove net software for the card or on board wireless reinstall and boom it works fine.
routers may need reset or configured off the internet or the start up cd. I take this a wireless router hooked to internet gateway. don't know not enough information you may need to tell me a little more. first try install of net-card software then set you working router to unsecure no pass word need see if you connect then change it to you wpa password protected.
