Question about Cisco 857W (882658019555) Router

Setting up Cisco 857W

I am having trouble setting up a new Cisco 857W wireless router.
My SBS2003 network uses the IP
I managed to use the supplied software to reset the IP of the router to use but now I cannot accesss through ethernet at all.
I have tried using and also which was the original IP.
I do not want to mess with the IP and DNS on the SBS server so I wanted to set the Cisco to the same subnet as the server.
Shouldn't this be possible?
After several attempts to log in I decided to reset the router switching it off the straight after switchinf it on I pressed the reset button.
Does it matter which device acts as DHCP server as I think our AVAYA IP phone system may be acting as DHCP server (I'm not sure!).
Obviously I am new to Cisco but would appreciate any suggestions offered.
Many Thanks.
