Hi, thanks for the quick replies..  I am not trying to do anything
special.  But I dont know where to get my MAC address, etc.  and when I
tried to change my password and click accept changes, it does not look
like anything has changed or that the router has been seen..  Do I need
to reboot after setting things up?  I lose connection when I am setting
things up and I cant seem to get it back without physically unplugging
the router.  It just seems like Im missing something that is causing it
not to work either from Ubuntu's side or the router.(PS I am running
Dapper, not breezy.  sorry)
