When trying to configure WAP610n to use static ip instead of dhcp:
ip address: 10.254.254.2
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
default gw: 10.254.254.1
results in the error "The Subnet Mask is illegal".
Same error for subnet masks 255.255.0.0, 255.0.0.0...
My firmware is 1.0.00, I used the 832 build in the support area as well.

Seriously, what is the solution? I need to set a static address and no matter what, the web admin page says my subnet mask is illegal. In my case, I'm happy with ANY subnet mask. I just have one private network, not connected to any other network and my network has NO network infrastructure, i.e. no DHCP server. I can connect the WAP to a different network to configure it, but it will not let me set a static address.

I have a similar issue, trying to use a 10.1.10.147 ip for a client device and trying to use a 255.255.255.0 mask I get the illegal subnet mask also. But even if I change the mask to 255.0.0.0 I get the same message. I am trying to brows my network to locate a shared drive on anther WIN 7 machine on the same workgroup. I f I plug in to the network I can access the drive, but when I disconnect the cable and try to access the drive via the wirless router (wap610n) I can only borwse the internet. The laptop gets an ip address of 10.1.10.147 with a mask of 255.0.0.0 and a gateway of 10.1.10.1 I have thought this may be related to not entering DNS numbers for the cable router, but was thinking that DNS should be passed as a result of this being in DHCP mode.....
Ok, so any thoughts here ?
