I have linksys WAP54G I connected to linksys WAG54G using network cable but when I try to access the access point through its default 192.168.1.245 and enter the username and password "admin" it does not take me to the configuration page where I should configure the setting it seems that the password is not accepted
can someone help me please in setting this up?


But when I run the AP setup to detect the WAG54G it detect it but when I remove the net work cable and connect DB direct to the AP, it does not seems to be working in the wireless network

Did anyone here succeed in a similar setup?

The default IP address for Linksys router is usually 192.168.1.1 try that...

If you can then access the router you should change the default name and password.

Then set the WEP password and use the option to check wireless connections for the MAC address of connected equipment. Once you have all your equipment connected using WEP access lock the access to these addresses.

As additional security you can turn of the broadcast of your network name.

What about the IP address for the access point I believe that it is 192.168.1.245, am I right?

I was able to access the router “WAG54G” using 192.168.1.1 user name admin and password admin, but when I try to access the access point “WAP54G” using it is default IP address which is 192.168.1.245 I am able to get the Menu where I should enter the user name and the password, but once I enter the user name “Admin” and password “Admin” it does not take me to the configuration page of the AP.



Then how can I make sure that the AP is connected to my wireless network?



Thank you for your cooperation.

Try leaving the name field 'blank' and enter 'admin' in the password field.

Thanks dear

I was able to access the AP IP address 192.168.1.245 as you said the username field should be blank and the password is admin, but the only problem left now is the important one, which how to set up the AP and connect it with the dreambox

My linksys WAG54G is connected to my PC



I am trying to connect my dreambox to linksys WAP54G and make my DB and AP connected wireless to my WAG54G

Is it possible to setup my whole system with these two things that I have or there are more devices need to be added!!



If it is possible, I do not know what configuration that needs to be done.


Thanks Bro :)

by the way my access point is connected directly to my DB not through a HUB, is the HUB important to be between them?

Shouldn't make any difference.

Can you get the Dreambox working on the Internet wired to your PC or do you use a router?

If you get it all working 'wired' then try and do it wireless that helps a lot!

just a question...when you set up the WAP54g, do you set its SSID to the same one as the WAG54g?

The SSID is unique.
