"Password" prompt stalls install at Step 7!

    I get to step 7 of the setup and I press next, it checks computer settings, goes to 100% and a password prompt comes up. I assumed this was asking for a new password from myself so I type it in and the setup process just stays at step 7. I tried again, typed "admin" just in case and NOTHING!

    It keeps getting stuck at step 7 thanks to this password prompt!

    Can somebody please explain how to get around this???

    I just bought the WRT54GL and its driving me crazy how I can't get to step 8!

    I had this same problem with a WRT54GS. I just cancelled out of the install and went straight to the router webpage at, with the default username left blank and the password of "admin". Then configured the router myself.
