I am using a Linksys WRT300N router and used the autoconfig method to sync the expander. Everything works great but I cannot get to the expander using the standard IP address of 192.168.1.240. I now am fully up and running but my network is unsecured because I cannot get to the expander to change the security settings. Any thoughts?? Has the WRT300n somehow assigned a different IP address to the expander when I autoconfiguired the expander?/ Thanks for the help
hi....the setup will not change the IP of the RE unless u do so manually....
what version of the RE are u using ? 1 or 2 ?
incase it is version 1 , scan for the available wireless networks and check if u are able to see the SSID of the RE.....select and connect to it....now try to access the Re vis http://192.168.1.240 ......in case u are using the version 2 , hardwire the RE to the router first and then access it via http://192.168.1.240 .
I have a very similar problem. I have version 1 and I'm trying to link up to the expander so that I can upgrade my firmware (an thus allow further configuration setup to expand my ActionTec Quest supplied wireless router).
I use the angryIP program and it finds all my computers but no indication of what address the range expander is at.
The other interesting aspect is that when I search for wireless networks on my wireless laptop, it shows the Linksys SSID as Excellant along with my main router network. The setup disk and downloaded setup both bomb out when I try run them - no changes ever seem to get saved before the warning comes up that it can't find my AP or that my range expander must not be powered on.
assuming you have a wireless notebook... Reset the range expander to set it back to factory defaults. Hard code the notebook's wireless card to ip address to 192.168.1.x, pick something you are not using, like 192.168.1.5 Reboot the notebook. Fire up your browser, enter 192.168.1.240 as the URL, that should connect you to the range expander, now manually config the thing and cycle the power on it. If you are using security, be sure you enter the correct security key and channel cause when you cycle the power it will come up whichever way you set it and if the security parts are not right you will have to reset the range expander back to factory defaults to try again.
