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

1 Answer

WAP54G bricked power led blinking LAN connection shows as not connected

Purchased 2 pcs WAP54G ver1 . Power, connection and Act leds blinking on both units. 30 second reset did not help. 'ping 192.168.1.245' brought "Unreachable" . Lan port on PC reports that nothing is connected (WAP is connected via crossover lan cable).
Tried to short pins 15 and 16 on Flash , than powered the WAP, ping still unreachable.
Is it bricked? Is it likely LAN chip NS601680 failure? Thanks a lot.

You did not specify where the wap is connected when you pinged it. Try this, connect the wap54g to your pc. Assign static ip 192.168.1.5 on the lan of the pc, then ping 192.168.1.245. if you can ping you should be able to access the configuration page. if the power is still blinking you can upgrade the firmware

Tip

How to reset to factory defaults


If you've lost the address/password information for your WAP54g, or if you've bought a used one and need to reset the configuration, follow these steps:

Step 1: Connect the power to the WAP54G. The "Act" light on the front of the unit should be on.

Step 2: Connect a network cable (cat5, normal or crossover cable is fine) from the WAP54g to your computer.

Step 3: set your computer's network interface as follows:

  • Specify an IP address manually,
  • ip: 192.168.1.2
  • netmask: 192.168.1.255 (for Linux)
  • netmask: 255.255.255.0 (for Windows)
  • default gateway: 192.168.1.1

It doesn't matter what your DNS settings are for this exercise.
** BE SURE TO NOTE WHAT YOUR OLD SETTINGS WERE, so you can reset your computer when you're done!

Step 4: On the back of the WAP54g, locate the "reset" button. Use a paperclip or the tip of a pen to press and HOLD this button for 60 seconds. Yes, really, a full 60 seconds. If you release the button before that time, just hit the reset button again, and start the 60-second timer over again.

Step 5: After 60 seconds, release the "reset" button and unplug the power connection from the WAP54G, and wait 10 seconds, then plug the power back into the WAP54G. The "Act" light on the front should light up again.

Finally, on your computer -- point a web browser at http://192.168.1.245/
It should prompt for a username and password.
  • For Internet Explorer, leave the username blank and put admin in the password
  • For Firefox and Safari, put admin in the username and admin in the password

And there you have it!

Link led keeps on flahing and act led is not coming only


Try resetting the Linksys router.
To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

SETTING WIRELESS


1. Shut off the power to your cable or dsl modem for about 30 minutes.

2. Connect the ethernet cable from your modem to the Internet port on the router.

3. After 30 minute power on ONLY the modem NOT the router

4. Wait about 60 seconds and power on the router

Try it now.
