Main issue: I moved my us robotics usr5451 from a set up where it was attached to a Qwest DSL modem and desktop computer running Vista. It was recently moved to a Zyxel 900 series modem that is not attached to any computer. All wireless machines (except my Wii) can still connect via the WAP to the internet. However, I am now unable to access the WAP to change its settings.
I'll try to make this as short as possible:
Previous config that worked: us robotics usr5451 hooked up to a 4 port hub. Hub was hooked up to a Qwest DSL modem and a desktop machine running Vista. Was able to type in »192.168.0.4
to access the WAP.
New config: us robotics usr5451 hooked up to a 4 port hub. Hub is hooked up to a Zyxel 900 series modem. I attempted to plug an ethernet cable between my laptop and the WAP (using the same ip address of my old config) to access it directly and it didn't work.
I'm at a loss as to what to do. US Robotics tool to detect the WAP isn't working. And since I have mac address filtering set up I now can't add anything new to my network without accessing the WAP. I have been unable to find anything on the web that deals with this scenario.
