Question about Linksys Wireless-G WAP54G 802.11g/b Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

Need help need help with WAP54g access point with WAP54g access point I recently had to help try to fix a small office network. Currently it has a netgear ds116 hub with a wap54g connected to the hub for wireless in the office. The wireless is not encryted. No one in the office knew the passwords and the person who set it up is gone. So i did a hard resest to restore the factory defalts. When I tried to login using 192.168.1.1 , I found that the person who set it up must have installed other firmware because I was greeted with a SONICWALL login screen and not the linksys login. I have used all the default admin/password configurations to try to get in with out success. I brought in and old WRT54gs i had lying around at home and just tried to swap in to replace the access point, but I couldn't get any data from the internet to come thru. If some could please help me instruct me on how try to fix the wap54g access point, or give me some instructions on how to configure the WRT54gs so that it will work properly it would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance for your help

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

OK. I have the Linksys WAP54g and I am trying to link another computer in my home to this one. I have ethernet and 2 wire. It won't connect. Please help me out here. Thanks, Russell


You must be more PRECIS with your question... What I understand is that you want to connect two computers to the WAP54G (wireless Access Point)??? an than you mention wires ??? if it's because the Access Point is set up to bridge with an other wireless network you can not hard wire two computers to the AP (since it has only one port) unless you have a multi port SWITCH staked/connected to the AP, if the AP is set up to broadcast a WIFI connection than you just need to set up the second computer with the same information as the one all ready working (SSID, ENCHRYPTION KEY, etc...) if it's because you are trying to NAT one computer connected to the AP to an other computer through hard wire, than you need a switch and a good understanding of networking to share a single network connection with two computers...

The wap54G is having issues. Computers trying to connect to it keep acquiring ip address and never connecting. Any advice on what might be wrong?


Hi williamrayes,

If you have a message that acquiring ip address you can Power Cycle the router for 2 minutes then try to connect again or you can try to check if the Network Key that your typing is correct (If the connection is secured). You can check the Network Key of your router by accessing the Wireless Settings Page of your router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security, You can personalize the Network Key if your want. Save the settings then try to connect.

Rate me if this helps so I can help others.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I trying to fix a small office network and need some help. I have a netgear ds116 hub that currently has a linksys WAP54G access point connected to it for wireless access. The access point is not encypted...


So have a hub and a wireless access point at office.
Do u have a router in the network at office ?
The default IP address of the WAP54G will be 192.168.1.245.
The Sonic firewall is a different thing.
I think you are accessing the set up interface of the sonic wall with the IP address 192.168.1.1.
Where is the access point connected ?
Is it connected to the sonic firewall ?
The access point does not have the DHCP server.

I hooked up a wap54g access point to a cat-5 line then connected to a router...but cant print to the printer on the network. any help?


If the wireless works okay, then you need to add the printer to your pc. Go to printers in the control panel, select add printer, and follow the prompts. If still no good , let me know if the make/model of the printer and whether it is connected directly to a pc on the network, or plugged into a router/switch with an ethernet cable.

2wire 2700hg-b wired router wont allow setup of Linksys WAP54G access point


the ip address of the 2wire router might be different from the ip address being used by the wap54g (ip address is 192.168.1.245 by default) that's why it's not being detected.
you need to directly connect the wap54g to a computer and set the computer to use a static ip address (ex. 192.168.1.240) and run the cd that came with the wap54g. you need to set the ip address of the wap54g to the same segment being used by your router to make them see each other

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern

ciao!

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.

Getting The WRE54G To Connect With The WRT54G


The WRT54G, WRT54GS, and WAP54G all must have the latest firmware versions available installed in order to connect with the WRE54G Wireless-G Range Expander. Here are the minimum firmware version requirements that you must meet: * WRT54G (all versions): at least firmware version 2.02.2 * WRT54GS: at least firmware version 2.07.1 * WAP54G (all versions) : at least firmware version 2.07 To Identify your WAP54G Version Number: To find out which version of the WAP54G you currently have, flip your Access Point over to look at its underside. Near the serial number label, near the Linksys© logo, you will see your model number and a possible version. Labels for the WAP54G version will look like one of the following: * WAP54G (no version means Version 1) * WAP54G ver. 1.1 * WAP54G v. 2 For WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 Users ONLY: (if you have a WAP54G Version 2, you may proceed with the 2.07 or later firmware upgrade) NOTE: Before upgrading the WAP54G Version 1 and Version 1.1 models to firmware version 2.07 or later, make sure your Access Point?s current firmware is version 1.09.1 beforehand. The version 1.09.1 code performs an important OS upgrade for these versions of the Access Point -- it must be loaded before using later firmware.
