    I've a G4 MDD networked with Mini for approx. 3 years now via a LinkSys BEFSR41 wired router. Ethernet cables are CAT6's with gold-plated ends. Did an erase/install (+ updates) of Panther on G4. ISP is Comcast Cable. Just upgraded my Motorola modem from Surfboard 5100 to SB 5101. My network settings are ok...file sharing is turned on...I can ping each 'puter from the other (showing my connection is good). I held the reset button on the router in for 30 seconds to restore default settings. When trying to connect (to the Mini from the G4), I get the window asking for my password....but it tells me it's wrong. By default, the password is my admin pw.....yet, it won't work. I have internet access (showing that the router is still good according to Cisco). From the Mini (trying to connect to the G4), I get the same result. Will some kind soul help? TIA

    So what was the actual problem that prompted you to do a stupid crazy amount of things?

    Perhaps you will share the answer with us?

    If you're getting the login window when trying an AFP connection, and it says your PW is wrong, then it probably is...unless there is something else you aren't telling us.
