Wifi stupid w/ Linksys WAP54G

Follow up to Missing AC adapters and no wireless in my house:

-- bought a new Wifi access point (now I have three!)

-- found my old AC adapter for Wifi AP #2. damnit.

So I dropped a new NIC into a computer central in the house, named its interface, setup a NAT/firewall so traffic can go out but not access the internal network (my NFS, etc), setup DHCP/DNS for the AP.

All works, etc.

But how the hell do I rename the AP's ESSID from "linksys"?

I thought I remembered these things having an IP address, webserver, and passwod, not being just a bridge.

This came with no instructions. What's this "One Touch Setup Button"?
