Hi

I have a SBS2003 server setup with 2 NIC interfaces one for WAN and one for LAN.  I have also installed a Netgear WG602 Wireless Access Point .  I need to set security on the AP , however I am having difficulty working out the IP address of the AP as the Internet works on DHCP on the Server so the default gateway is the server.  Can anyone tell me how i find the IP address of the AP so I amy access the settings menu via browser?

Thanks for your help

The internal, LAN-IP address is normally set to a default, private number.
Linksys routers, for example, use 192.168.1.1 for their internal IP address.
D-Link and Netgear routers typically use 192.168.0.1.
Some US Robotics routers use 192.168.123.254, and some SMC routers use 192.168.2.1.
No matter the brand of router, its default internal IP address should be provided in documentation. Administrators often have the option to change this IP address during router setup. In any case, however, the private LAN-IP address remains fixed once set. It can be viewed from the router's administrative console.

Depending on where you connected the AP, you could also lookup the IP there (eg router, managed switch..)
Another option would be to connect your Laptop/PC directly to the AP and listen for broadcasts, this can be done with any basic packetsniffing software.
