I have 2 Linksys WAP11's.... I tried updating the firmware on them, it completed without error. However, they are now non responsive, I cannot use them and cannot even get to a setup page. I have reset them several times by holding the reset button over a minute. I cannot access them via the default IPs or my own manual ips. Any ideas before I toss them?

Do they power up at least?

Try using this to upgrade the firmware once again, and verify your Version number once again.....

ftp://ftp.linksys.com/pub/network/tftp.exe

This method doesnt need a login to the device.... If it doesnt respond this way, and you have tried a reset by using the button (which you have), then I am afraid they might have been bricked..... In teh event of multiple ones, I would call thier support. You might have found a bug in thier code.....

Use the following to scan your subnet, to see if you can identify them by name...

It was a no go..  they are in the trash... Even Linksys couldn't get them going... so a note to others, apply the firmware at your own risk... I just lost 2 AP's because of it.
