This is driving me nuts.

Was on the phone with LinkSys support for a half hour today and at the end they
just recommended I take the thing back and exchange it.

I still might do that, but can't shake the idea that I'm just doing something
dumb.

Running the LinkSys setup CD, everything goes fine - including it's acceptance
of the Admin password of 'admin'.

But when I try to open up the WAP's setup page via IE, (using the default
address 192.168.1.245) it seems to be getting to the device, because I get the
password prompt dialog.    But when I type 'admin' into the PW field and click
OK, it just loops around and presents the dialog again.

What I'm having trouble understanding is how the CD's dialog can work ok with
'admin' as the PW, but the web page's "Enter Network Password" can't.

There's no upper/lower case issue... I'm definitely typing in lowercase.
