Can't connect to configure password through web address

Dear Sir or Madam,
My friend gave me his D-Link DWL-2100AP, H/W Ver: A2 F/W Ver. 2.00. I reset the unit so it can go back to its default settings. I have a wired router in my office (NetGear) that I can connect this unit to one of the pc's that is not being used and then I can have internet access using 'default' network with my MacBook Pro. My problem is that i need to set up a password to give it some security because when this unit is plugged in, anyone can use it to access my other office computers and it could be disastrous.
I don't know how to connect it so i can access it's menu to configure. I tried directly connecting the unit to my pc and also directly connecting it to my Macbook Pro laptop. Of course, no luck. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I can not configure a D-link dwl-8200ap
I have tried conectingit t othe router and also conecting it directly to the computer.
when i type the devices IP on my browser nothing happens.
I thought the problem was that it had a different IP configured so i reseted the unit via the little button on the back but agian nothing happened. I can not acces it.
Help please!

When you reset the AP, how long did you press the reset button? To reset the AP to factory defaults, the reset button should be pressed and held for at least 15 seconds. Also, once reset, the AP should have the following settings:

IP address:
Subnet Mask:
Default admin username: admin
Default admin password: <blank>

When connecting your PC, either set an IP address within the same subnet ( or choose "Obtain address automatically".

I hope this helps.

Connect your computer to the router.
Under Windows 7, click the "Start" button.
Type 'cmd' into the search-box, and press ENTER.
Look for the IP-address of the "gateway" (or "DHCP-server").
Type that IP-address into your web-browser.

Can't connect to configure password through web address

what you were missing is the fact that if you directly connect router to pc you will have to change ip on pc to match router i.e you are trying to connect to router through ip listed above then you should make ip on pc 192.168.0.***.

D-link dwl-2100ap in WDS mode Received Deauth: WLAN 1 11G STA

I have had similar problems with DWL-2100 and (much less often) with DWL-3200. I have no solution, but a workaround: changing the authentication mode. For example, if the units are using WPA-Personal, I change it (on both) to WPA2-Personal or WPA-Auto-Personal. It doesn't seem to matter which mode is used, it's just the fact of changing it that helps (eventually). You may have to go through the process more than once. Also, realize that although the web interface comes up 30 seconds or so after a reboot, it may take another 30-60 seconds before a link is established, so don't give up too soon while trying these changes.

Can't connect to configure password through web address

Here is what you can do. You need to access the setup page of your Dlink Access Point.
1. connect a computer directly to the access point (via ethernet). Then assign an IP address on the computer (IP: Subnet Mask DG: ). It is necessary for you to assign an IP address because your access point does not have the ability to assign an IP address to the a computer, its is not like a router.
2. After you assigned an IP address, you can now access the Dlink Access point's setup page. To do that open your browser in the address bar type (this is the address of your access piont) and it will ask you to put a username and password. Just type admin for both username and password field. And it will take you to the setup page of the access point.
3. To enable a wireless security, just click the tab on the left hand side that says Advanced, it will populate the options under Advanced and select security. On the main screen you will now have an option for security modem, you can select wpa-psk, then on the Key box you can type any password that you want (8-63 characters). Then click update there at the bottom of the page. If you also want to change the name that the Access point is broadcasting you can go to the on the left hand side that says Wireless and put any name that you want on the box that says SSID. After that click updat button again.
4. Now after updating the settings, You can reconnect to the network. And this time you will now be asked for the network key. Just type your network key. That's it.

Just reply to this post in case that you need more help.
