Try going to 192.168.1.1 if you can get there its most likely the way it is configed.
also try the reset with a pen

I cannot find the setup CD of my Linksys WAP54G Access Point, and I cannot configure it properly again. For some reason it is not working.


Problaby a hard reset will solve your problem.
There's a small red reset button at the backside of the device.
push it for at least 10 seconds.

My access point works fine for about an hour then the act indicator goes off and it becomes undiscoverable for my laptop. what is the solution?


Ensure that your laptop WIFI is correctly setup and specifically turn on the option:
'connect even if the network is not broadcasting its name SSID'.

If it does not help, try the followings in order:
  • Reset the router (make sure that you backup your current router setup or know how to reload i / reconfigure).
  • Change Wifi Channel on your router as the current channel frequency might be clashing with other wireless devices (handsfree?).
Good luck!

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

D-link access point is closed, how can I repair it personally?


You would have to connect it via RJ45 and burn new firmware into unit. The firmware would be downloaded into the computer that is connected to the access point, remember what directory you have placed the new firmware into. You will have to access the unit via windows explorer with it's http, some units through their respective manufacturers have unique address for each particular model. In case you have lost your password or other settings, reset the unit to defaults by using the reset button appropriately. The manual will show you the rest. Good luck.

Linksys WAP54G connection to WRT54G


Ok, so why do you need an access point upstairs and a router downstairs connected wirelessly? If you can't connect with a laptop or a pc, why whould you think you could connect the access point? The purpose of this configuration would have to be with the access point to the router via ethernet. What's the point? If the problem is range, check out http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php to enhance the capabilities of the WRT54G... and maybe building a parabolic antenna for it as well. Plans to do so abound at Lifehacker.com.
