This is actually part of a bigger problem, but I thought I'd go step by step. I'm trying to update the firmware of my Linksys WAP54G access point. But I can't access the set-up page. I've followed all help articles on Linksys' website, but nothing worked.
I currently have the access point wired to the same switch as my pc (I don't have any cross-over cables to wire it directly), and I've done a hard reset, which should have reverted the IP-adress back to the default (192.168.1.245). But when I try to ping the access point I get a "request timed out". The only thing the articles asked that I couldn't do was assign a static IP to my pc. I don't know why, but I get this weird error when trying to open my network's properties:
Seems like a lot is going wrong here, and I don't know where to start.
