I had a Dlink DI-624 with WPA-PSK encryption. Is there any way to get this to work on 10.2.8?

From AirPort Card: When You Can Join a WPA Network:

To join a WPA network, a Macintosh computer must have:
  • an AirPort or AirPort Extreme card (see Note)
  • Mac OS X 10.3 or later
  • AirPort software version 3.3 or later for the AirPort Card (available via Software Update)
  • AirPort software version 3.2 or later for the AirPort Extreme Card (available via Software Update)
So no, apparently not. Even then, Apple's WPA-PSK implementation seems to be incompatible with my Belkin 54g (fails to join, with cryptic error messages in the terminal). I've heard that the same thing happens with D-Link WAPs too, so even if you had 10.3 I wouldn't count on being able to use it. (Filed with Apple, Problem ID 3720619.)
