Question about SMC EZ Connect (SMC2655W-KIT) 802.11b

1 Answer

SMC EZ Connect Access Point apparently not connecting to wired router

I've recently obtained an SMC EZ Connect 802.11b wireless access point (model number SMC2655W v1). I've connected it to a LinkSys EtherFast Router (model number BEFSR41 v 1.0). Also connected to the router are my desktop and my cable modem.

The status lights on the router don't light up or respond in any way when I connect the access point. The SMC utility does not detect the access point, and I get no response when I attempt to access it using its default IP address (192.168.0.254). The power light on the access point is on, but other than that, there is no sign of activity.

I've tried using different ethernet cables, and have tried connecting to different ports on the router. I've also tried the "RELOAD" button on the access point. If it matters, my max DHCP users on my router is set to 50.

Does this sound like a faulty access point, or am I doing something wrong here?

Thanks

The address you wrote is not a MAC address, it's an IP address. The MAC address is the physical network card address.
A MAC address has a form xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx, or as Microsoft likes it, xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx, where xx is a pair of hexadecimal digits (from 0 to F).
You can find out your cards' MAC addresses either by inspecting the card hardware, where often it's written on a label, or using "ipconfig /all" command (from the command prompt) - it will show you the physical addresses of all the installed network adapters.
If you have locked yourself out completely from your router and cannot access it's configuration page, you will have to reset it to factory default settings (see manual on how to do that) and re-configure it from scratch.

While connecting thru router,it showing limited access frequently


Do you leave the router switched on all the time? If not then this can be your problem as some routers can take up to 3 days to get full signal strength and keep it. When switching the router off and powering back up it has to search for the signal again. It will happen whether you are wireless or cable.
If you are wireless and router is always on it may be where it is located, walls can interfere with the signals so try moving it to another area to see if that helps.

I'm unsure of the exact part number here but using the model number I checked the manual. This looks like it's just an access point which extends a current network you have. If you only have your laptop, this device and your internet modem it may not give you the wireless connectivity you're looking for. On a normal setup you would plug your modem into a router, plug your laptop into the router and set it up with all your DSL/Cable connection information as well as wireless on/off. You can then unplug from the router and continue life. with this one it's only connecting to an existing setup (another router or another wireless network) and extending it.
If you are looking for a solution to give you a router that connects to your modem and gives you wireless or adding multiple devices on a single connection I would recommend returning this and getting an all-in-one router such as this: http://homestore.cisco.com/en-us/Routers/Linksys-E1000-Wirelessn-router_stcVVproductId97826160VVcatId551966VVviewprod.htm?icid=linksys-specs-e1000-learnmore-btn&src2=linksys-specs-e1000-learnmore-btn

Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password.

My wireless access point SMC


Thank you cgahongayire.

Follow these steps to retrieve the wireless key:

1) Connect a computer wired directly to your accesspoint.
2) Assign a static IP on the computer with the range of 192.168.2.x (x is any number from 3-253).
3) If it prompts you for a user name and a password, user name is admin and password is smcadmin and click Login.
4) Select Advanced Setup. It will give you the window for the access point.
5) Select Security under Radio Interface 2. You can see which security is set on your AP. If it is set as WPA, the shared key is your network key. If WEP, the network key across the selected key is your password.

Take note that these instructions are if the IP settings of the Wireless AP have not been changed. If it is, you have to ask what is the IP first.

My wireless lose the pasword key


-You need to access your router user interface using a wired pc to the router, by typing the router IP on the address bar of your browser then it will ask you for a username and password.
-Then on that page you will have options where you can enable again the wireless security just enable again the security from that there.
