    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 ...
