    Alright this is a bit wierd. I have two WAP54G's and they were working fine. I wanted to play around to see if I could repeat one signal from another and read that I had to upgrade to the latest firmware. I upgraded my secondary AP to 3.03 with no problem. So, figuring it was safe, I upgraded the other. It appeared to work then refused me wireless access.

    I tried pinging it and got nothing. Rebooted it, got nothing. I ran a scan on my lan and to my surprise it was now at 192.168,0.255. So I try to log in at that address and nothing. My LAN untility shows that there is no port 80 and no MAC address.

    Next I push the reset button to go back to factory defaults and surprise! It grabs, resets the WEP encryption and works. Almost works. I still cant login to the http: interface. I can surf it, but cant login.

    Any advice would be great!

    When upgrading to a new firmware version, you must reset the setting to factory default before the upgrade. Different versions of the firmware store variables in different areas of the nvram, so unless you reset the device the results may be unpredictable. You should always do a firmware upgrade from a wired connection.
