DLink DWL-8200AP Revision B

My DLink DWL-8200AP Revision B does not have an IP address after firmware 2.10 upgrade. I upgraded two of these AP using a wired connection and have the same problem both devices.

Everything seems fine during the firmware upgrade. It's just that the AP no longer has an IP so you can not connect to it to configure once the firmware upgrade is complete. Tried to reset the device by holding the reset button for 15sec and can not access it using the 192.168.0.50 address.

Sorry if I didn't not give out enough information. By default, these AP do not have DHCP service turned on. The default setting is 192.168.0.50. I gave my laptop wired NIC an IP of 192.168.0.51 and connected it to the AP to upgrade the Firmware. After waiting 15min to for the firmware upgrade to finish, I tried to reconnect to the AP with no success. Did not respond to pings at all. I tried to reset the device by holding the reset button for 15sec and still no luck.

Just to confirm, I tested your suggestion and It's just as I though. It did not help. Thanks for the suggestion though.

I called DLink today and after going over with I did to try and trouble shoot, they are just going to send me two replacement AP since both AP failed after the firmware upgrade.
