Netgear WAP WG302 - Cannot access after firmware upgrade

We had a Netgear Wireless Access Point WG302 that needed to be configured.

The firmware was from 2004, so I went to NG's site and downloaded firmware.

I uploaded the firmware from the web admin interface.

Now, I cannot access the WAP at all.  

I have tried to reset using the reset button and unplugged it - waited and plugged the power back in.  The lights come on and otherwise, LED indicators look OK.

I cant reach it's default IP address nor the IP I gave it.  

The MAC is 00-0F-B5-72-AE-19 but I forget how to use ARP to see if I can "see" it.

I am on a service PC where I can change the IP of the desktop to teh default 192.168.0.210 required.

What else can I try?  

TIA

Dean

Just to make sure, you are trying to connect via a patch cable, not wireless correct?

Have you gone into Network Connections and changed the IP addy, subnet and default gateway accordingly, to be on the same network as the default IP address of the gateway?

According to NG, the default IP is 192.168.0.228. Can you ping it?

Yeah- using same patch cable as I used to initially configure it.

Cannot ping the default IP.

I cannot web into it at all since the firmware update.  

The workstation I used was still configured to when I set up the unit to be on our network.

I changed the IP to be on our network- went to another PC and proceeded to change other settings and updated the firmware.  Now- nothing.

Here is some info that should help. In the second post it mentions using a null modem cable to connect to the WAP, and upgrade via hyperterminal.
