Default Gw Code Key?

I recently bought Guild Wars through Steam, and I'm not quite sure how to link my Guild Wars account with my Steam account. I can view and copy the CD key, but when I go to add the CD key, it asks me to enter the name of a character on that account (How could I have made one? I haven't even logged in yet )

Yet when I hit enter (character name field blank), I constantly get an error telling me to check my internet connection. I can confirm that my internet connection is fine - I'm not sure why it's giving me that error.

Is there any alternate way to connect my GW and Steam accounts besides the method used through the client?

GW accounts are not created through steam as far as I am aware -- you just get the GW CD key through them. If you never played GW before, you will need to create a new account first. Just launch the game, at the login prompt, choose "Create Account or Add Access key" then on the next screen check "Create a new account" and then press next again.

Edit: You can also create a NCsoft Master Account and add the GW CD serial key that way. But personally, I never have done it that way -- I always used the client.

I didn't use Steam, but I thought it was a little confusing too. Only the first time you can log in without entering a character name. After that you need to make one and use it. Because I already managed to lose track of it once in a trail account, I decided to dedicate 1 slot to a name I wouldn't forget or lose track of.
