Question about Motorola AP-5131 802.11a/b/g Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

I have 2 AP5131 AP's on the same network with different IP's. I have been told they need to have separate "channels" in order for the hand held scanners to be used with them. How can I change "channels" on one of them?

Go to http:\\ip-adres-of AP5131
wait for login (java must be on your computer; otherwise click on link and install)
enter username : admin
enter password: ????
go to: Network configuraion => Wireless=>Radio configuration=>
and select a chanel.
Make sure when both AP's are to function on one network (+roaming) the channels on both should be different (f.i. choose channel 3 & 6). SSID and key;s should be the same
Make sure to save the changes on the AP.

Configuring NetGear N750 for Seperate Network


I recommend separate channels and different SSIDs for each router. Connect each device to each router you wish. Same channels with same SSIDs will create interference, your devices will not know which router to connect. Set up each router with a unique SSID and if you need a device to connect to both routers, ensure it connect to only one at a time.

I can't access the configuration page. I've tried everything: disable the firewall, ping the IP 192.168.1.245 with no answer, when i run the command ipconfig, it doen't show the default gateway of te AP....


If it is not showing as the gateway on an ipconfig then the router is not, for some reason, handing out IP. Have you tried resetting the router and if so, are you plugged directly into one of the 4 port LAN's in the back. You may have a bad router or may just need to flash it with some firmware. Is your IP in IPCONFIG a DHCP (192.168), or is it windows internal (169.254) If not 192.168 then you just very well may have an adapter problem. There are so many variables to diagnose on different levels of networking, but it appears that you have enough knowledge to figure this out. Also....try to hard wire a different computer to diagnose an adapter problem with the one you are using.

Wirless connection wont connect to network.


On the WLAN world, exist a encryption key for connection. You will be able to see the "antenna", but until you enter the key you will not be able to access the network or the internet. First, disable the wireless security and try. Once you have verified the connection to internet then you add security. Use WEP.

Cant get accesss to the configuration window


In order to get to the AP, and assuming you just plugged it in, you need to put everything in the 192.168.0.x domain. The AP defaults to 192.168.0.50, so you need to make sure that the router gives out IP addresses that does not include 0.50, or change the IP address of the AP. Likewise, the computer you are trying to log into the AP needs to start in the 192.168.0.x domain, with x being anything but the gateway address (normally 1), or 50.

My guess is you have a router built into the modem and it is giving out different addresses. You can set your network address by hand to be 192.168.0.pick a number like 5 and plug into the ethernet port of the AP (may need a crossover) to get to it.

Post back and let us know what you found.

Dlink 2100 ap


If you default the unit, does it still reboot?

If so, it looks like the unit is faultly.

If not, you might have a IP conflict, or channel problem. Check the two units are on the same channel, but have differant IP address.

when using the AP you have to make sure you set the SSID, channel & wireless key in the AP the exact same as the router and make sure when configuring the Ap that you set the default gateway as the IP address of the router.
