I have a WiFi router with a PC hooked up. How do I set up my Mac Mini to the same router? Ethernet? Then how do I fill in the blanks for AirPort?

    Plugging it in via ethernet would defeat the point of having a wifi router wouldnt it? You could run an ethernet cable, but I assume the objective is to use wifi instead. 

    You dont mention how your router is connected to your PC. If its through Wifi, you can use the same password on your mac. If you dont have a password, it's likely you set it up using a one-touch technology - WPS? To find out or create a password, you'll need to login to your router interface. If you post the model/brand, we can help out a little, but pulling out the manual and searching for the default ip, and username/password combo would be the easiest. From there, you can set up a password which you can use on your mac. Try these links, one will likely bring up the interface to your router (from your connected pc, of course )
