Thread: Lost Wireless Access Point IP address

  1. Lost Wireless Access Point IP address

    Hi

    Wondered if anyone knows how to help. I have the following configuration:
    - ADSL modem, (IP: 192.168.1.1, subnet 192.168.1.0, netmask: 255.255.255.0)
    acting as a DHCP server
    - A hub
    - A wireless access point hanging off the hub.

    In order to configure the Wireless access point, I need to use it's IP
    address to get the web front end. Time was when I can do this...not really
    sure how I messed this up but somehow I can't find the wireless access
    point's IP address any more.

    I've tried a large bunch, but since the manual says I should find it on
    192.168.1.1, I have a feeling something I've done when upgrading my PC
    recently has broken something. The wireless access itself works fine, it's
    just the configuration I can't do.

    Does anyone have any idea how I can get in touch with my wifi access point's
    front end again?

    Many thanks for any suggestions,
    Jake

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for responding, though I'm not sure I understand: I don't use a 'www'
    when I try to see the wireless access point web config: I just type
    http://192.... Etc. Any ideas?

    Best regards,
    Jake.


  4. Re: Lost Wireless Access Point IP address

    I have heard of people locking themselves out of their router/access points and
    the solution was to reset the unit back to factory settings by means of the
    reset switch......usually a small hole on the back of the unit marked as such or
    labeled in your manual.
    Of course then you will need to redo all of your settings..........just watch
    out for that security setting you changed that locked you out.

    I just had the same problem trying to find the address of a print server. I
    made up the script below that I ran in a DOS box. Running it as 'pinglist
    >list.out' will put the results in a text file 'list.out'.


    It simply tries to ping each address once. If the response contains the word
    'reply', you've got a live address. It will take a little while since each
    unused address will have to timeout.

    Cut out the command list below and save it as 'pinglist.bat'
