how to program deployed WG102

Hey guys...so I installed a WG102 AP at a clients office about two months ago and set up 1 SSID with 1 WPA passphrase and saved that password on my BlackBerry...then my BlackBerry died before I could record it, although I already programmed about 15 wireless computers with that password when I was at the office. They are getting more computers and I need to figure out the wireless password...the only thing is, I don't have physical access to the device since they are 10 hours away and I usually do everything remotely. Is there a way I can connect to the device over the web by using it's MAC address?

Hello,

If your AP has a public IP you should try to find it's ip. Ask one guy in the office to go to : http://cmyip.com or http://whatismyip.com to get the IP.  But you won't be able to remote control this AP if it's not already configured to be remotely managed.  ( What you could do, to avoid "loosing"  it is to put a DynDNS account on each of the AP you deploy, like that you always know their IP).

If the AP is not configured to be remotely managed (over internet) and/or has no Public IP...then you have to remote control a computer inside the network...then control the AP using is private IP (you know it ?)

I can remote into a computer inside the network...let me try to run an IP scan on a local computer there and see if it can find it. Would it have gained an IP by DHCP that I could use to access it?

Not by just using its MAC address.  The "web" routes IPs.  Looking at the docs, I'm not sure it can be setup for remote management.  Most APs will allow you to try and connect from the LAN and you have to allow connections to the management interface from the WAN.  If you can figure out how to allow WAN acces you can walk someone locally through enabling it.

kupiszew: DHCP is disabled on the AP so even if I ran an ipconfig /all on the wireless client, it wouldn't give me an address to the AP, would it?
