"Mac mini - no wireless card " if you have no Wireless card you can not use Wireles.

You do not set the security protocol, when connecting to the Wireless Router the software decides what information is required to allow two way transmission of data

As regards Norton, best thing is to ditch it, itis an overpriced piece of crap bloatware.

Thanks, but I have used wireless before - i have a 4 port router, so I connect the modem to the router that way - no need for a wireless card on my mac mini. Used a netgear router before with success. Thanks anyway.
