The default IP address for the AP should be 192.168.1.254. Assign your PC a static IP that is on the same subnet (192.168.1.x). You should be able to access the web interface now @ http://192.168.1.254. The default username/password shuld be admin/admin.

On some linksys wireless devices, the address can also be 192.168.1.126.
Follow the same procedure above for setting your PC's IP address. Make sure you have a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
Also, sometimes you have to access these new devices with SSL - use https:// instead of http://
Cheers!

BTW - if you still can't access the AP after you do this, keep your PC on the 192.168.1.x IP and run the included setup CD - that will find your AP and you can configure it like that.

Do I need to have the access point connected to me with an ethernet cable or can I do this wireless when i change the ip address. I have this access point connected to my linksys cable gateway box and I am able to access the cable gateway.

You and the access point need to be plugged into your linksys gateway, once you change your computer IP address you should be able to access it.

Well, actually it can be plugged in either with a switch or router AS LONG AS the laptop is configured with a 192.168.1.x address.
Again, if you can't access it by IP at first, just run the included setup disc - that will usually find it for you and get you setup with a basic config.
Cheers!

Oh, and the switch/router doesn't have to be Linksys... it can be from any manufacturer.
Cheers!
