I have a Dlink DWL 2100 Ap which was working fine but I did not know the user name and password.  So I have performed a hard reset back to factiry settings.

Using Advanced IP scanner the WAP when plugged in to my router shows up as at, Manafacturer giver as D-Link Corp and the MAC address is given.

But I can not access the WAP through my browser. If I ping it no response is given.  Does anybody have any thoughts?  Of course I could simply go and buy a new one but i see this as a challenge now!

Thanks in advance.
