I have no idea what I'm doing. Please assume you are speaking to someone who knows nothing about computers.
I plugged in my new Netgear Wireless-N 150 Modem Router. I turned on the airport in my Macbook and connected to it. Working perfectly.
The instructions that came with the modem say that the CD won't run the setup wizard on Macs. Okay, so I follow their instructions by typing in http://routerlogin.net. I then enter the Router User Name and Password as "admin" and "password" as instructed to get to the setup wizard so I can secure the connection and...... and the screen is telling me that is incorrect and I can't go any further.
Really need to password protect this internet connection, please help?
