We have several remote sites with Dell Powerconnect 3548 and 3524's. Is there anyway to remotely change the IP address of the switch through telnet or its browser interface  to a new unique IP address on the same subnet? The switches are typically in a phone closet with no computers and therefore we can't easily use the serial port to configure it through the CLI.

I did see this post:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Networking_Hardware/Q_24307528.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+address+ip+powerconnect

-that states to remove the existing IP address first, but, If we remove the IP address first, we can no longer access it remotely to configure the new IP address or save the running config(unless we walk a user through moving a computer, hooking up the serial cable and we remote into that PC to configure it.)

If we try to add a new one before removing the existing one, we get a duplicate IP on the same subnet error.

thanks

possibly you can try to download configuration from the switch,
change ip address in it, then upload config to the switch into starup config and then reboot a switch
