I'm trying to set up a pair of brand new CPE 201s to connect my house with an out building about 30 yards away. I want to change the IPs to be on the same subnet as my router: from 192.168.0.254 to 192.168.1.254. This worked fine on the Client. But the AP becomes unreachable as soon as I save the new network config. When I apply the new network config, a dialog box opens telilng me to log in to the new IP and save the configuraiton.
"The LAN IP address has been changed. Please log in with the new IP address and save the settings for the configuration change to take effect.
Otherwise the configuration will be lost after the reboot."
But I can't reach it at its new IP (192.168.1.254), and I can't reach it on the old IP either (192.168.0.254). Each tme I make sure that my PC is on the correct subnet before trying to connect.
Once the AP is unreachable, I seem to have no choice but to reset it. For some reason the reset button on the AP itself doesn't do anything (grr, brand new unit, too); fortunately, the reset on power adapter works. Then I go through the process again. I've repeated this several times, and I'm not getting anywhere.
What's the solution to this?
