Another Firmware Upgrade Problem

    I flashed the firmware in my Linksys WAP54G v1.1 from version 1.06 to 3.04. (I realize now after reading the forums that I should have upgraded incrementally) It seemed to go normally until I tried to access the web interface. The static IP wasn't there. I tried the setup CD and it couldn't find anything. I ran an IP sniffer and it found it with another IP address that must have come from my DHCP server. I try it in a browser and the login box comes up but says "802.11b bridge"! I tried my password...nothing. I tried the default admin password...nothing. So I unplugged the AP from the switch, reset the AP (hard reset...30sec.) power cycled it, plugged it back into the switch and it goes right back to the DHCP aquired address but I still can't get into it with a browser 'cause the password has changed. All the wireless PC's reconnect to the domain with no problem.
    Does anyone have any idea how I can get into the web interface?
    Thanks,
    Pomp

    Try the default IP Address of 192.168.1.245 and entering the default password of admin, when prompted. Always do a firmware upgrade from a wired connection and reset the setting to factory defaults before doing the upgrade.

    As explained in my first post, the default IP address isn't there. The AP has obtained a 10.x.x.x address from my internal DHCP server. I originally had a static IP assigned to it. When I http://10.x.x.x the logon prompt comes up (and says 802.11b bridge, by the way) and no password/username combination works. Not the default, not my original...nothing. I've tried everything I can think of. I've even done a hard reset while unplugged from the switch, power-cycled, and then plugged back into the switch. It immediately obtains a 10.x.x.x address again and all wireless clients go right back to working fine. My only real problem is I can't access the web admin of the AP.
    Something I didn't do was reset the AP before upgrading. I'm afraid I've hosed the access by upgrading without going through all the steps, or by upgrading from 1.06 to 3.04 without loading the lower versions first...or both.

    Did you press the reset button for at least ten seconds, with the unit powered on?
