Reset AP-700 failed

I couldn't connect to AP-700 from LAN, when i try to ping to it's ip address, it replied 'Request Timed Out', but it's no problem when i try to connect from my Laptop Wifi.
Before this happen, i try to configure AP-700 with RADIUS security, could be invalid parameter, so this AP become failed to connect from LAN.
I try to push 'reset' button several time, but the configuration still exist.
Please help me to reset or reflash my AP-700 Proxim

Simple solution, firstly do not press the reset button to long as it will erase all software, or you will have to do this the hard way. google the software called ScanTool run that from either ethernet or wireless, this tool shows you the AP-700's ip, mac, and name (some techs run these AP's coadjacent so it shows the name as well). You can change the ip of the AP-700 from here most of the time with the proper pass, then you should be able to connect to it regardless. if this dont help ... Proxim/Support/AP700 you will find more of an in depth approach of these things there.

LAN cannot see on arp -a command prompt

sometimes you have to ping the device before an ARP request will be sent. If you are trying to find out the IP address, use a network scanner. Some wireless utilities will actually give you the IP address of the AP you are connected to also. If all else fails, factory reset the router and you will then know the IP address.

LAN Network, both PC's with static IP's and defaullt and DNS addresses are 192.1683.1.1 tried the other defaults. Both machines connected. when i ping each others IP's request timed out. please help

Can not really understand what exactly you have done. Please try the following steps:
1. Assign static IP on pc 1 as assign subnet mask as 2. No need to assign default gateway and DNS. 3. Assign static IP on pc 2 as assign subnet mask as 4. No need to assign default gateway and DNS.
Open dos and try to ping. In case if the ping fails then disable all the firewall on both the pc's and try again.
If you are running windows vista then in network and sharing center make sure network discovery and file sharing is enabled.

Have a D-Link EBR2310 How can I test it to see if the port to the to the computer is working? The port gren does not light.

You are saying you cannot connect through the router ... Change the ethernet cable and/or try other portson the router.

Does your computer connect to the WWW when you wire it directly? If it will work when connected directly then it should work through the router. That is your test.

Connection to linksys wrt300-n router drops frequently from wirelessly connected laptops - even when sitting in the same room mere feet away from the router. I've set it up to use MAC filtering and AES...

Try to Disconnect and Connect the Internet Manually in the Wireless Network Connection. Also this can be a problem with our Computer or Laptops Lan Card which may be having issues in connecting.

WLAN having consistant high latency with frequent all-out fail

I would suggest borrowing a different known working wireless adapter, and test trying that. Or test using a wired connection, just to prove it is the adapter. Perhaps the wireless adapter you are using is flaky.

Voyager A210 Laptop shows when connected to wifi "Limited or no connectivity"although others are connected on same router at the time. I have removed wifi program and reinstalled No difference

This is just a try. Find out the Default Gateway on the other computers. If they are using a static IP then you need to get on. At someone else's computer click Start and Run and enter Cmd and click OK.

Now type in ipconfig /all. Look for IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Servers. Write it all down. Then find an available IP address by using the Ping command.

In the same Window, type in ping and the IP Address of the computer you are at. That's just to show you what it looks like when you find an IP already taken. You'll see "reply from..." with the address you just pinged. Now ping again but change the last octal in the IP (the last number) in the IP address to something under 256. And ping again. Do this until you get a message "request timed out". You've just found an available IP.

Cannot Log on to my Router

These steps solve most of the problems with logging on to routers. 1. Connect a computer and a router directly with an Ethernet cable, putting an end in one of the router's LAN ports. Check that both ends are secure. 2. Check the Internet LED is lit. If it is not, troubleshoot the light status, as explained in the manual. 3. Check that the LEDs for the ports with cables are lit. If they are not, try moving the cable to a different port. If there are still no lights, then troubleshoot the light status, as explained in the manual. 4. Check the LED on the Ethernet adapter is lit. If it is not, then troubleshoot the adapter, do not continue with this document. If the Ethernet adapter was not made by NETGEAR, contact the adapter's maker. 5. Select Start > Run. Type cmd. Type ping If there is a message "Request timed out", type ping If that also has a "Request timed out" message, then your computer is not making a connection to the router. 6. Otherwise, your computer is connected to the router: * Make sure proxies are not enabled. If using Internet Explorer, select Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings. Uncheck "Use a proxy server for your LAN....". * Delete offline contents. Select Tools > Internet Options > Delete Files. Select Delete all offline content, and click OK. (This is to clear any possible previous router log on page.) * Try accessing with a different computer, or with the Netscape browser, if you have it. * Delete cookies. WARNING. Do not do this if it's possible Web sites you visit need cookie information such as your logins and passwords. 7. Power off the router, and power it back on again. 8. If you still cannot log on to the router, then do a hard reset on the router. (Described here: 9. If you know how, check the computer's IP address and DHCP. The IP should be in the 192.168.0.x range, and DHCP should be enabled.
