    Hi,

    Who can help me to find the IP adres of mine Linksys Access Point WAP 54g?

    Normal is it useal to fill in the IP 192.168.1.245 in the browser but I get
    no answer of it.

    The Access Piont is conected with a switch and the switch connected with the
    server who gifs the IP automatically.

    I can use the wireless connection, but I want to change something.

  2. 192.168.1.245 is the default IP address. You may have changed it.
    Try:
    http://192.168.1.245/
    with the "slash" at the end. Some browsers seem to insist on it being
    there.

    You might also be able to force a connection by assigning a static IP
    address.
    arp -s 192.168.1.245 00-00-00-00-00-00
    where the mess at the end is the WAP54G MAC address.
    Does the server deliver the IP address for the WAP54G? Probably not,
    but if it does, check the DHCP cache or log to see what IP address was
    assigned to the WAP54G MAC address. The MAC address is printed on the
    bottom of the access point.
    Use nmap to scan for the IP address.

    C:\NMap>nmap -T5 -sP 192.168.1.0/24
    Starting nmap 3.55 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap ) at 2005-03-17
    12:20 Pacific Standard Time
    Host 192.168.1.1 appears to be up.
    Host 192.168.1.50 appears to be up.
    Host MICRON (192.168.1.100) appears to be up.
    Host DELLBERT (192.168.1.101) appears to be up.
    Host NET44GATE (192.168.1.102) appears to be up.
    Host 192.168.1.255 seems to be a subnet broadcast address (returned 1
    extra pings).
    Nmap run completed -- 256 IP addresses (5 hosts up) scanned in 19.71
    seconds

    If you get too many devices, run:
    arp -a
    immediately after scanning and see which IP address was assigned to
    the WAP54G MAC address.

    OK, if you've lost the MAC or something you won't find the AP by wireless
    means.
    I'm guessing here because you don't give much detail.
    You need to hook up with wire & usually you punch in 192.168.1.1 to get into
    the setup program on the router. Of course you'll need to punch in the user
    & password to get in?
    Then again I might be wrong. Depends........
