How to access an access point with a different gateway address?
Posted on 2014-11-25
I am using a Buffalo WHR-300HP2D running DD-WRT firmware. The router gateway is 192.168.11.1.
I want to add a Linksys WAP54G wireless access point. The access point claims an address of 192.168.1.245. I cannot access it at that IP address. Tried 192.168.11.245; no good. I have used a scanner from 192.168.0 through 192.168.255 and 192.168.11.0 through 192.168.11.255 and both scans do not find the access point.
So I also tried connecting the access point to my PC with a cross over cable; same results. The WAP54G has been hard reset with the reset button. Can't figure out any other way to connect to it. So I need two things:
1. Connection to the WAP54G, then
2. How to change its IP address to 192.168.11,something
Ultimately I want to connect a Chromecast through the access point.
