Hi there, i have a problem with my Linksys WAP54G wireless access point.
My access point is connected to a hard wired ADSL router (Netgear DG834). 2 other computers are also connected to this router. In terms of producing a signal and accessing the internet via the wireless point, there is no problem.
However, i just cannot seem to access the in built web configuration utility on the Linksys access point. Currently the wireless network is unsecured as a result of there being no access to set up the necessary security procedures.
In the documentation etc. the default address for the WAP54G point is 192.168.1.245. Typing this ip address into any web browsers on any computer on the whole network (both hardwired computers and wireless) brings no result.
The accompnaying Linksys CD software (which i believe isn't really necessary to set up the network) recognises and picks up the wireless router. However when i try to change settings via this CD software i cannot access the router because any password I try is incorrect (the default password is admin i believe). Interestingly the CD software displays the WAP54G's IP address as 18.104.22.168 (note the extra one before the adress).... what does this mean? Typing this IP address into any web browsers on the network brings no results as well.
I have tried resetting the WAP54G using the reset button, and even resetted the NETGEAR router but no success on accessing the LINKSYS web config utility. Interestingly too, when using the NETGEAR web config utility there is no recognition of the Access Point being on the network. Im wondering if there is perhaps a conflict between the Router and the Access Point? Im really not experienced with networking so i wouldnt know.
The wireless access is working, but i have no ability to secure it or change settings. Any ideas or solutions ?
All help appreciated.
