    starting up with mac
    i just started my brand new 24 imac and for networking it was asking for a password...

    i dont seem to know it and im not sure if it changed as we switched dsl carriers from sbc to dsl extreme but we are still using the dsl extreme wireless router

    anyone know how to find out the password..
    just called dsl extreme and they made us connect the ethernet into it

    but i would like to have less wires as possible so thanks for the help

    Specs:
    15" MBP, 2.16GHz Intel C2D, 2GB Ram, 120 GB HD
    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!

    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

    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.
