    Problems setting up Air Station Pro WLM-L11G Access Points

    Hi All, Happy New Year.

    I have been trying to access the setup screens via hard wiring with RJ45 cable the access point to a test linux machine with no firewall or proxy.

    This is some of what I have tried.
    1. Powered it up, pressed 'init' reset button.
    2. On a test computer, RJ45 cable to the above.
    3. Set pc's IP = 192.168.11.2 255.255.255.0 gateway/DNS = 192.168.11.1
    4. Connects to access unit. (I can also connect via Wifi )
    5. Open browser (with No proxy) http://192.168.11.1 Cannot connect.

    I have tried various Ip address's for the pc and browser none work.

    On the manual it says use the CD to set up .. I do not have a CD !.

    Any idea what I'm doing wrong ?.

    If you are using Linux then you have probably already thought of this but it's all I can think of...

    It sounds like you are assigning a static IP rather than letting the router DHCP server assign an address. Could it be that the router's IP is not what you think it is? Perhaps try using DHCP and check the default gateway address assigned.

    Well I did try that yesterday, but it did not work.
    Moved over to another test machine, it will not connect using DHCP, But it will using Static IP's .. odd .
    I have tried the reset button, it should go back to factory defaults ? , not sure it is .
    I've got two of these and they are acting the same, it's got to be something silly I'm doing.

    In the manual it says "the default IP and subnet address of the WLM-L11G is 1.1.1.1 and 255.255.0" I think that's a misprint !. But I did try 255.0.0.0 , with the pc ip = 1.1.1.2 and that also connected.

    In the manual I can see different ip's they have in there screen shots but none work to access the setup screen.
