I'm a complete dope when it comes to this. Basically, here is the situation.., I have the Linksys WAP54G. Basically, I have my Mac (the iMac, which is where Comcast installed the modem and plugged the ethernet into), a Toshiba laptop with Windows, and an older model PC with Windows (all in different rooms, not to mention a 360 and Wii, sheesh). Comcast refused to help when they came over to install our internet, saying we had to call anybody in the world other than them, but I have a coax cable running into our modem, and an ethernet cable running from the modem into the Mac. What we're wanting to do is just run the ethernet cable into the wireless router, and that should just give us all wireless internet access. Right? I mean, it seems to want to work for the Mac minus one problem: when I'm setting up airport (is that what I need to do?) it tells me a password is required. So I typed in just random stuff and it said it's not the right password. I undid everything, and tried again a few hours later and suddenly it tells me it's name is Gerald. So I guess that's somebody else's wireless connection or...something Linksys set up...who knows. Anyway, typing in that, or admin, or any other password I try comes back with "incompatible security". Now, I went straight to Linksys' website first and asked their forums what to do and the ONLY advice I got, hours later, was "download the manual". Well, I did. And all it is is a guide through the install disc. Which is for Windows. And it doesn't mention anything about a password other than the one I create so nobody else can use my wireless internet. WAY TO GO LINKSYS FORUM. So, can anybody help me set this crap up? I'm unbelievably frustrated as whatever someone tells me to try results in me having to disconnect my internet and not have it for support. Thanks. Sorry if this is in the wrong board. I'm not sure where it goes.
