Question about SMC EZ Connect (SMC2655W-KIT) 802.11b
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?
You doing something wrong there.
give the mac address of smc to the access point that's all you get it

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.
