    My TC will not connect to the internet after I set everything up. The backup however does work; I can see it and connect to it through the finder, also I can store files on there and open those files in a PC I have in another room. But I cannot connect to the internet.

    What I CAN do though is reset it and have default settings on my TC, then I am able to get a connection (the default network name is "Apple Network f55f8d" if you happen to be my neighbor, you can get free internet right now). But I can't access the HD because it asks for a password...but there is no password assigned to it!!!

    I have searched all forums I can find regarding this, and have tried all the tricks I know of: resetting the modem and TC, rebooting the computers, going into system prefs/network and putting airport first, etc...

    Anything I am missing?!

    How long did you wait before trying to get to the Web? Are you able to see what IP it is getting? (if it is a 169.254.x.x or not?) I know mine took a little while (a couple minutes) before it grabbed the IP and DNS information so I could "get out".
