Initial setup help please :)
After a lot of online research I decided to spend $200 on a Boxee... I read the instructions and it looks very straight forward.
But when I try to connect to my wifi using the boxee setup guide, I select my router name, enter my password (which is correct, I have checked twice) but the next page shows "Wireless network was connected, but Boxee can't connect to the internet".
I have added the Boxee's MAC address in the mac filtering section on my router.
Is there a firmware update that is available? How do I check my current firmware version? Can I do a firmware update by connecting the boxee to my laptop?
I was really excited about getting this going but I've obviously missed soemthing.
Thanks! any help would be great!

Make sure you read this thread and then this one.
How to manually update from USB.
Let us know if nothing in there gets you going, and respond with as much information about your network setup as you can manage (router model, WiFi settings, etc.)

I tried changing it to dog but it says i need at least 8 characters. I have put an 8 digit number and still get "unable to setup wirelss netowrk, please check your password and try again".

Hmm, no idea then
I was using this for testing, 12345678, before I got everything pretty much correct and then upgraded to a harder password.
make sure all your networks have the same password. try to re-enter the password in your router, save and reboot it
