I recently bought a new PDA, along with a Bluetooth Access point. The BTAP's default IP address is 192.168.2.1. 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?
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!
Since the router is connected to your network, you'll find that you can access the configuration page from any computer in your network by simply entering http://192.168.2.1. You don't have to do the configuration from a Bluetooth connected computer or PDA. After changing the configuration to suit your needs, then you'll be able to connect using the PDA.
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 http://192.168.2.1:5000. Look for this information on the documentation on your router.
Is the second to last number in a LAN ip address like a 'group number'? As in, if my computer was 192.168.1.100, it couldn't access 192.168.2.1. But if i changed my ip to 192.168.2.100, would it be able to access 192.168.2.1?...just a thought
