Hi, and welcome to Apple Support Communities.
The iBook G3's original AirPort Card is not capable of handling encryption beyond WPA. It will not work with WPA2-encrypted networks.
Also, it needs a network that supports the 802.11b standard used by the original AirPort Card. If you are using a router, it needs to be set to mixed mode (b/g or b/g/n) in order for the original AirPort Card to access the network.

The network is in mixed mode with a wpa encyption, but it is not picking up any signals from any networks at all unless i clear the PRAM before i turn on the computer and even then it wont connect to a network, and after a couple minutes all the networks will disappear. im just wondering if that would be a bad card, antenna or what or if their was another way to troubleshoot the problem. as i have made sure the antenna was connected correctly and the card is inserted properly.
