920 won't connect to MacBook wifi.

920 won't connect to MacBook wifi.

I'm sharing my internet connection from my Macbook pro, and have been connecting with my old Lumia 800 without problems. Today I took the plunge and bought a 920. On my way home, I connected via wifi to McDonalds without any problems. When I arrived home I tried to connect to my Macbook using the correct password, and the 920 gave me a "wrong password" message.
I then changed the password on the Macbook to a 40 bit WEP code - still no joy. I've tried rebooting both the Mac and the 920, switching channels on the Mac wifi channel and am now getting peeved, as my old 800 still connects without fail.
Occasionally I get the "wrong password" message, other times I get "Unable to join".

Any one else having the same problem? Any suggestions?

Remove the encryption temporarily and see if the 920 connect. It should indicate if the issue is wiuth the encryption or the connection.
