I decided to start playing with this tonight, dug up the setup wizard
CD, and it's got two big cracks in it. :-/

So I head over to linksys.com, download the wizard from there, but
I can't get past where it prompts for a password.  Default password
doesn't work, any password I would have set doesn't work, reseting
it to factory defaults doesn't fix it.  Google.  Bring up link on
broadbandreports.com that says you really need the original CD, other
people using the downloaded version have the same reults I do.



Anyone feel like helping a guy out? =)
