If you have a wireless router that is more than 5 years old, you may want to start looking for a new one.

Well this doesn't sound like any fun: enough Intel Macs running 10.4.8 must be having a problem connecting wirelessly to some 3rd party routers that Apple had to publish a support doc on the topic.
