where do you type in a password on a wireless Ethernet device? Its with Qwest DSL, and i have to use a serial number from the bottom of the router


Thanks

on my iMac which I just got, click the wireless icon on the top right.
It should show a list of wireless networks it detected. If you configured
a name for your wireless AP it should be easy to spot, otherwise it would
some generic brand/model name. When you select your wireless network
it should prompt you for the passwd.

Initially my security was WEP-Shared which my iMac couldnt attach to.
But changing to WEP-Open made it work.

Hope this helps ...

J.
