I've a purchased a used unit. I reset the jumpers to factory default. Have been unable to set the IP address for the unit. Used the arp command to set IP and mac address, arp -a will display the static address but cannot ping the address. Any ideas?
I finally got the unit to work. I reset the unit a couple times to factory default. arp -s command for the ip address, set up the port in my windowsxp for the set ip. Shut everything down and started it back and it worked. Thanks for the help
Really need a bit more information, like operating system for a start, but here goes: I am guessing that your subnet mask is different from your printers. What address that you set are you getting from the printer? On your PC, what is your IP and subnetmask set to?
All Linksys routers have a built-in web-based setup page that allows the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties.
NOTE: Before accessing the router's web-based setup page, make sure the router is powered on and the computer is wired to one of the Ethernet ports on the router (1, 2, 3 or4 ).
Accessing the Router's Web-Based Setup Page
NOTE:To access the router's web-based setup page using Mac, click here.
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
NOTE : For WRP400, the default IP address would be "192.168.15.1" and if you place the router behind a primary router with the IP address of "192.168.15.1", then the router will automatically assume a new default IP address, "192.168.16.1".
NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.
The router's IP address can be changed by:
1. Running the router's setup CD.
2. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page.
If you forgot the router's IP address you can:
1. Check the router's IP address. For instructions, click here.
2. Press the Reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds.
NOTE: This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased. The router's IP address will be "192.168.1.1" and the password will be "admin".
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
If you forgot the router's password you need to reset the router. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If the password of the router has been changed, type the router's new password in the Password field instead.
The router's password can be changed by:
i. Running the router's setup CD. Click here to learn how to download firmware.
ii. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page. Click here to learn how to change password on the web-based setup page.
