When I was connecting to the computer on my network (two PCs) from my MBP and it asked for a password, I left the field blank and just hit enter. Try that.

It should be able to be left blank. If not, see if you can get your router's config settings and look up the password. Good luck!

thats the thing
i remember a few years back i was looking up how to get bittorrent to dl faster and it mentioned router settings and had links and everything but i cant find them
so new question
does anyone know how to get to the router settings
once i get there i think im good
i might not sound too knowledgable right now but i know little to nothing on networking etc.
my mom and I are happy switchers i would like to add
my 11year old sister and 2 year old brother are in photobooth right now... time to kick them off$2000.00 till i get my 24" imac.

Set up port forwarding with a number like 50,000 and then set the port as 50,000 in Azureus, or whatever P2P software you use.
