I was at an estate sale last week, and bought a box of computer stuff...In it was a WAP54G v2...

I plugged it in, I get a signal but it is encrypted...there was no install CD in the box...

I understand the WAP has a Web Server, and I am trying to figgure the IP address so I can access it and set it
up for my network...

I have tried,  0.245, 0.254
and,   1.245,  1.254

Research indicated one of those IP's should work...unless the user reset to some completly different IP range,
I would think I could get in thru the web server...

Thoughts, Ideas???

I was able to reset the WAP...the SSID changed from what it was to "Linksys"...that would put it on the
default IP range of 192.168.1.x....

However, I run my network on 192.168.25.x, so the WAP is not in my subnet....

My network is a static IP into  2Wire router...I run that static straight thru into a Linksys RV042 and my LAN off of that...
I thought I would just change the subnet on my RV042, and that should pick up the WAP IP, but I cannot class B the RV042...

So, Kinda stuck...

Remove the WAP54G from your network and connect a lone workstation to it via an ethernet cable with the interface set to a static IP address of (the last octet really doesn't matter, just don't put 1 or 245). Then open up IE or Firefox or any browser and go to and that should bring you to the GUI. Change the IP address of the WAP to 192.168.25.x and correct subnet mask and point the default gateway to the interior IP address of the nearest router.
