Question about D-Link Xtreme N DIR-655 Wireless Router
I have just installed the Dlink 655 but am having problems getting acces with one computer. (old Apple with OS x 2.8. It keeps asking me for the password. When I put in the password it sys it is incorrect. I have loaded the altest airport software 3.1.1 for the OS system I have. I know x 4.1 is recommended is there anything I can do other then get a new computer or upgrade my ald mac?
I had this problem it turns out the password format is a standard 13 charactors, if yours is shorter the computer auto fills the rest, different manufacturers use different charactors. My workround was to add extra "a"s to make 13 in total on the router, match the computers on the network and off you go.

Chances are the router is not transmitting B format signals (which is what most older macs ran). Most newer routers transmit G and N signals and will only transmit B it they are told to.
However, if that is not the case, it could be one of the mac's little foibles. When WiFi started macs often sent out the login-password in a way that many routers couldn't interpret. The work-around was to put a $ directly in front of the password. So for example, if the wifi password is fred1234 and your new machines are sending that out and being accepted then your old mac should send out $fred1234.
Let me know which answer works.
