    Upgrading Firmware on WAP11

    im now trying to upgrade the firmware for the wireless access point, which is a

    Linksys WAP11

    However i either cant find, or cant login to the admin page. The admin page is supposed to be 192.168.1.251 according to the internet... however there is a chance it is setup differently (i didnt set it up) ... i know there have been some conflict issues in the past so it may have been changed

    i obviously need to get onto the admin page to update the firmware... any ideas?

    also i dont know which version of the WAP11 i have, according to the linksys website there are several, all with different firmwares, i guess the admin page would tell me this too

    thanks!

    go to start>run>"cmd" to open a dos window

    type ipconfig /all and push enter.
    under "default gateway" you should have a number 192.168.*.* with * being 1-255

    type this number into ie or ff and put admin/admin as the user/pass.
    if this doesn't work, try any combination of blank password, use root/root also until you get in.

    from the router page, try & look at the DHCP clients table (or ARP table), and go to one of their IPs
