well, you gave me great instructions - thank you - so i followed everything - and then got to a place (after I had received the connection to the extender on my PC) and a screen asked me for a (server) username and password XXXXX which i have no idea what that is supposed to be - i tried 3 different ones - and of course you know what happened - i received a screen that said denied access - unathorized - from the 3 attempts....i'm not sure what that will do or not - i'm uncertain how to doublecheck what i need to know - or how to fix what i was denied....there were no 'help' buttons on the screen - just a blank white screen with those black letters - denied - unauthorized.... does this mean anything? is there something that i still need to do? how would I know? thank you so very much for your help.....i could not have gotten this far without your second note....
Default username is admin and password XXXXX passwordPlease try with them and let me know
