Okay, just bought a Linksys wrt54G router.

What I want to do, is hardwire to my desktop, and have it wireless for my laptop or any other laptop that may come into the house. At this point I don't care if the neighbors use it!

I rebooted the desktop, nothing running, and put in the install disc. BTW, I am on DSL internet here, with a static IP address.

I get through the wiring directions, in order. Then it scans the puter for it's settings. When that is done it asks for a password. It did not come with an owner's manual. From what I read in the online owners manual, the default password is "admin". Which was already highlighted. I even tried changing that, no dice. Hit enter, it scans again....... asks for a password.......... over and over again. I can't seem to get past that. I have rewired, rebooted, started over more than a few times. I thought possibly my firewall was causing a problem. Zone Alarm, but I disabled it, still no luck.

What am I doing wrong ? Or is it the software that came with it?

Any and all ideas would be welcomed, I'm lost and do not want to call Linksys if I can help it.
Thanks guys and gals.
