Cannot ping

I have a dlink DWL-2100 access point which I have plugged in and to configure it, you open IE and put in the ip of 192.168.0.50

It will not open, nor can i ping it.  Would it have to do with our firewall?

Hi mmacdougall,
You first have to connect the access point directly to a machine and configure the machine with a fixed IP address on that network (192.168.0.51 for example) and then you can access the web interface. You can then change the access points IP address to one on your network range and reconnect the access point and your machine (after putting the network settings back to how they were) onto the network.
