I have just built my first computer:

MSI Z77A-G41
16GB 1600Mhz RAM
128GB SSD & 500GB HDD MSI 7770GHz GDDR5 video card

I installed windows 8 fine onto the SSD. I then put in the WiFi card I got, TP-LINK (TL-WDN4800) in to connect to the internet and download drivers for all my hardware that I just put together. I boot up windows it asks for the WEP key to connect to the wifi. I give it, then it asks for a login; I don't have one. So i think I must have to install the included drivers first. Do that, asks to restart, BSOD (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL).

SO I plan on reinstalling windows 8 because safe mode won't work, it goes straight to the BSOD when booting. Once I do that I'll get more up to date drivers I guess, but my question is what do I put into the login info for the wifi? I tried admin:password and it didn't work.

Try removing the card...there may be something wrong with it. Anyway, there's no way for us to know what credentials your wireless is configured with, you need to talk to whomever set it up. – Shinrai Dec 21 '12 at 0:02
It's my dad's wifi, no credentials. I just logged in with my laptop with windows 7, didn't ask for a password. I remove the card, I have no way of connecting to the internet... – Ben Dec 21 '12 at 0:10
If you remove the card and problems clear up (ie, it's defective) you'll be replacing it anyway. And if it's defective you won't be using it anyway. And if no credentials are necessary you shouldn't need a login:password - those are credentials. – Shinrai Dec 21 '12 at 0:59
@Ben, your question is not clear. The post reads as if you want to know about the BSOD error, but it turns out you just want to know the default username/password for the router. I suggest (otherwise your post will be closed), you edit the question and make it about the default username and password, then add another question about the BSOD :) – Dave Dec 21 '12 at 9:39

The default username and password are both admin
