      connection timed out on imac now that i have macbook.

      i own a macbook and an imac. i bought the imac first and it had a strong signal for connecting via airport to our netgear router from skybroadband. then i bought a macbook, which connects fine, but now on the imac when i try to connect i get 'connection timeout' and can't connect.

      i've been told by people on the apple forum to temporarily disable the security on the router but dont know how to do that...

      does anyone have this problem or know how to solve this?
