There is no IP address when the switch ships from the factory. It is set by the user and/or the network by DHCP. If you do not know what the IP address was set to, then you'll need to return the switch ti it's factory default configuration. There should be information in the manual for the switch about the default config.
What did you set the IP to? IP addresses are assigned manually or automatically by your network. You should be able to access it with 192.168.0.254 or 127.0.0.1. If your network is set for DHCP it assigns the IP automatically. If it isn't then someone assigned an IP manually and if that is teh case only that person would know what IP range they used.
Normally most internal LAN addressing is carried out by a DHCP server which issues IP addresses to anything that is connected to the network. IE your computer. most switches are set to obtain an IP address from them as a default. to find the IP address of youe switch you need to look at your DHCP server ( possibly your router/modem) and see what addresses have been issued. Once you have found the address it is a simple task to open your internet browser and type in the ip address of your switch. once there you should be able to configure your switch as per your requirements.
First, be sure to assign an ip address(in the proper subnet) to each VLAN.
Second, use the ip helper-address command in the context of each VLAN, the address used should be the address of the DHCP server
Third, Add a scope for each additional VLAN on the DHCP server.
The switch will route the DHCP request to the proper server based on the ip helper-address command parameter and based on the ip address of the VLAN that is passed tot he server, a DHCP address in the proper subnet is automatically configured.
These are non-manageable switches, not configurable thus no IP. You should be able to plug it in to your home wiring, however, if you don?t have a server or dhcp server you will have to assign IP addresses to your computers and other network devices manually.
