PUt the wrong address IP of gateway in new wireless AP and can't get into it now

I had someone change the Ip settings on a new Cisco AP to static from DHCP and they got the correct IP in but the wrong default gateway. I can ping it, but can't get into it via the browser. I tried SSH and telnet and it did not work. I know we can reset, but I am we are not on site. Is there any way to get into it. ?
This is a WAP561 Wireless. Thank you,

Can you try updating its default gateway node with a static route directly to you?

Can you try to RDP to another computer on the same network and access it from there?

have you tried connecting directly to it via ethernet?  if the gateway is on the same subnet, then you can configure your laptop with that wrong gateway IP as your IP.

OP isn't onsite Jan :-)

@netcomp - when you say you can ping it, do you mean from the local switch/router?

Can you not temporarily change the default gateway in DHCP and remotely reboot the AP by killing its PoE at the switchport?

If it is a Cisco IOS based router and you know the gateway they gave it, you could try:

interface <Interface Facing the AP>
  ip address <wronggateway> <subnetmask> secondary

Be careful with that if the wrong gateway actually exists on another device!

I am sure  the wrong gateway address does does not exist on a device . So, we have a cisco ASA 5505. Wouldn't the new command interfere with anything else.  How would I remove it when I am done? Thank you,
interface <Interface Facing the AP>
  ip address <wronggateway> <subnetmask> secondary

To my knowledge, the ASA can only have on IP address on the inside interface.

If you have it laying arround, I would suggest using a layer 3 switch or a cheap router.

Before that, I would try @epichero22 suggestion and RDP to a pc on the same subnets as the AP and try connecting.

So if that IP doesn't exist why is DHCP giving it to clients as the default gateway?
