WAP54G reset issues

I've taken over maintenance for a small business and the owner wants me to install a Linksys WAP54G. The thing is bricked by the last person who tried to set it up. Is there any way to reset it using a strongarm method? I've tried everything from power-cycling the WAP while holding the reset, to using timers while powered on, cycling power for 5 sec. and releasing reset 5 sec. after power on. Nothing is working. Anyone have any ideas? I don't want to use it as a door stop just yet.

This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the WAP has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.245.
To access the WAP's setup page, you have to static out you computer to
IP:192.168.1.200
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
gateway: 192.168.1.245
Then you have to add the router's wireless mac address to the WAP. In the WAP, select "repeater mode" in the advance page. and type in the router's wirelesss mac address, that can be found in the wireless tab of the staus page.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I can not access the linksys access point, the 192.168.1.245 does not link.


the default address is 192.168.1.1. if you still can't access you can factory default by pressing and holding the reset button on the back for about 10 seconds. after it restarts the ip address will be 192.168.1.1 leave the username blank and the password will be admin.

First RESET your router to defaults settings.Press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router.
Then connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with default link http://192.168.1.1
or
http://192.168.0.1
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"

Hey !
you said that you that you reset the WAP54G , the default IP address address of WAP is 192.168.1.245.
The IP address that you tried ( 192.168.1.1 ) must be the IP addres of the sonic firewall which might be acting as a DHCP server.
To access the WAP54G set up. you will need to connect the computer to the HUB and the WPA to the hub with the cable and then try to access WPA with the IP address 192.168.1.245

WAP54G bricked power led blinking LAN connection shows as not connected


you did not specify where the wap is connected when you pinged it. Try this, connect the wap54g to your pc. Assign static ip 192.168.1.5 on the lan of the pc, then ping 192.168.1.245. if you can ping you should be able to access the configuration page. if the power is still blinking you can upgrade the firmware

Password retrieval


There?s not much you can do. Try to put the router?s default password which is ?admin? (lower case) and then copy the settings so you can reconstruct them after the reset of the router. Hope it works good luck.
