I recently bought a new PDA, along with a Bluetooth Access point. The BTAP's default IP address is The problem is, i don't have a bluetooth-enabled computer. The AP is plugged into my LAN, which my computer is plugged into, but i cannot access the settings page of the Access Point (so i can use it with my PDA). Is it possible to access the router on my wired network, instead of my bluetooth one to work with the settings?

Oh yeah..i forgot to add this-

My PDA 'sees' the Router, but when it tries to connect, is asks for a passkey. According to my BTAP's documentation, if it asks for a passkey, you need to lower the security settings in the setup page, which is what i am having trouble accessing. Thanks for your help!

I have no experience with this specific model, but in some cases you might have to enter a port number. For example, for the Bluetake it's 5000, and the URL is like this Look for this information on the documentation on your router.
