  1. Ok, so I'm trying to create a network to serve all my media files from my desktop between my laptops.

    I have a Linksys WRP400 and as usual linksys tech support is useless... When setting up the router via the wizard, it requests a PIN from me that is supposed to be located on the device or in the documentation, but I can't find it anywhere. So I can't set up my server... Anyone have any suggestions??

    A PIN as in a password?

    Ifso, try:
    password
    OR
    admin
    They're sometimes used as the default password, if you haven't changed it...

    I'll look into this some more.

    EDIT: Hammer Vs. Linksys WRP400
    Hammer wins!
    PIN is inside... Maybe
    Broken Linksys WRP400

    An extra note, try looking in the documentation, again, its very easy to overlook things.
    The way people and companies are these days, its most likely in 1 font, so you can't read it.
