Lost Airlink101 AP671W setup cd

antk 392 208 January 4, 2013 at 11:11 AM
Hello all,

I purchased an Airlink101 AP671W access point via a thread I saw in hot deals about a year ago. It works well, except when it doesn't and I need to reset and reconfigure the thing with the included setup cd.

The problem? I lost the setup cd.

Any kind soul out there who has one who might be able to copy the program and upload it somewhere for me?

Thanks!

Nope, don't have it, nor do I know any outlets that would sell it except for maybe Ebay, have you tried there?

Seems you cannot download the setup utility that is on the CD from the website.

The setup software is not necessary. Reset the router using its reset button then configure it through a web browser by going to http://192.168.2.250 and entering admin for the user and password for the password.

You could try using the AR695W EZ Setup Wizard [airlink101.com] which seems to be the only version that Airlink offers for download.

No, software is not required but not sure if OP really has a desire to go through the user guide. The User Guide is the only option if the OP cannot find the CD online anywhere from any source.

Hey all, thanks for the help. So I went through the user guide, tried to hard reset the thing (holding reset button for 10 seconds). I connected it to my laptop and I'm not able to acquire an ip address. Tried resetting many times, unplugging all cables and letting it alone for a while. No dice.

Any ideas? In windows I get that LAN connection icon with the exclamation mark in a yellow triangle.

You did a hard reset and then tried to connect the laptop via wired or wireless? If you did a hard reset, you'd need to follow the user guide to connecting to the router via its IP address, over an ethernet connection, and run through the set up via the web browser interface.

Yes, I did a hard reset and connected via wired. However, windows tells me that it could not assign an ip address, so I am unable to get to the access point via the browser.

Since the thing is an Access Point and not actually a Router + Access Point, you may have to assign a static IP in your computer's network adapter configuration.

Oh, set a static IP address on that computer to the settings of the router.

So set static IP information on that computer to:

192.168.2.10
255.255.255.0
(gateway is optional)

Then proceed to set up the wireless settings.

Iagree

Follow this guide to temporarily assign your computer a static ip in the same subnet as the AP's default address (as above): http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/19...windows-7/

Thanks all, setting a static ip did it. Makes sense in retrospect. Bless you beautiful people for helping out a networking noob.
