Wifi stupid w/ Linksys WAP54G [Nov. 5th, 2005|01:26 pm]

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"?

I seem to recall the WAP11 not having one, but it's possible that a firmware upgrade added one. This was late 2001/early 2002.

But yeah, I have a WAP54G, and it definitely has a web interface.

Heh, this bit me yesterday. There are two hardware versions of the WAP11, one with and one without.

for what it's worth, the WAP54G we replaced it with had a default IP of Wacky.
