Can't setup AP. Can't access 192.168.0.50.
« on: May 01, 2014, 05:11:45 PM »

I just got a DAP-1522.  The first step of the instructions is to connect it to a computer.

On my laptop I turned off WiFi, thus making sure the laptop was not on a network.  Then I connected to the DAP-1522 using the provided ethernet cord.

Next I tried to access http://192.168.0.50 in the browser, per the instructions.  I get the following error:



Also you can see the network icon in the taskbar is just spinning endlessly, trying to obtain an IP address or something.

I'm sitting dead in the water here.  I don't know what to do.

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your DAP? Look at sticker under DAP.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the DAPs web page under status.
  • What region are you located?


Be sure to input a Static IP address on the LT under it's networking adapter card properites. Use 192.168.0.49 and subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 Then try again to connect to the DAP. After it's set up, then change the LTs networking back from static to Auto Obtain.

Clear all browser caches.
Be sure to log into the Admin account on the router.

Setting a static IP on my laptop did the trick.  Why isn't that in the instructions?
