Client has ASUS RT-N66U set up as a wireless access point.  I need to get into admin page to change name of 2.4 Ghz band.  Do I have to go out there again and connect to the danged thing with laptop and CAT5 or is there a way to log into the WAP interface and do the changes.

I only see 192.168.1.1 mentioned in the manual.

I presume you are talking about the SSID.
Presuming "Go Out there" means that you are not in wireless range. So yes you need to either physically or virtually get connected to the device.

if you have remote access to something that is on the wired lan then you can remote to that machine and configure it through that, otherwise if you only have access to devices that are connected to it via wireless then you can still do the configuration change but you may have some difficulty as you will lose connection when the change happens.

And the clients on site will have to rejoin it.

Cheers
Andrew

Actually, you just need to know the correct IP address.  In my case, the IP address had been changed by another tech and not documented (like I document everything I do, right?).

Connecting to the ASUS internal web interface is done by connecting to the IP address of the wireless access point.  A tech had changed the IP address.  Once I found out that, and got the address, it worked fine.
