Hi. I am (re)setting up my linksys wireless router (2.4ghz) but forgot the password. So I decided to do a hard reset. I was able to use a computer connected to the web via the ethernet connection to get to and I thought I had set up the new password. Then when I tried to access the internet via wifi from my Mac laptop, and I noticed that the name of my router had been reset to "linksys" and the connection was not password secure. So I did another hard reset, and enabled teh security settings, renamed the router, and then reset the new password again.

Now when I try to access the internet via wifi from my laptop I can locate my network and it indicates that it is password protected -- so that seemed to work -- but it says that my password is "invalid"

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
