    Hi all!

    I just bougth on Ebay an used SMC Access Point (SMC2755W).

    It was previously configured by someone, and so I don't know the IP
    address and probably the Login and password have been changed from

    I tried to press the reset button on the rear of the unit, the Access
    Point seems to reboot, but the factory defaults are not restored. I
    tried to press it for more than 5 seconds, but with the same results.

    I can say the factory default settings are not restored because:
    1) The SSID is not restored to the default (should be "ANY", and it's
    still "Imperial Airport")
    2) The IP address is still unknown (it should be as

    Any suggestion?

    Well, appears to be off-the-air at this moment, but I bet you can
    pull a user's manual from there for your SMC2755W.

    In the meantime, try holding the reset button in for a solid 60 seconds to
    restore the factory defaults. On many routers, a "short" button press will
    simply reset the router if it hangs, but the actual settings won't be changed.

    My Linksys router requires a full 30-seconds holding the button down to
    restore the factory default settings and password...

  4. If it's the same as the other SMC router products, you have to:

    1. Disconnect the power
    2. Keep the reset button pressed
    3. Then reconnect the power and release the reset button only after
    the lights in the front flash in some sort of pattern. This should
    happen in about 10 seconds after powering up the device.
