Hello,
I have a WAP54G and let me know if there is any way to install a firmware without knowing the password for the device?
I tried to reset the device and no way possible as i only have the option to crush the firmware.

I have a solution?

Thanks.

flash via tftp right at router (wap) power up. You may succeed.

Problem is, without erasing nvram, the old password may still be active.

Would you have a V3 ~ V3.1 of the wap? Forget to set the board flag?

remember.. the ip of the wap is 192.168.1.245 when flashing via tftp prior to the firmware running.

you may want to try the stock firmware. That should rebuild the nvram.

Hello,
I've done it twice via tftp but change has not worked, the ip and password does not change either.
What other options do I have?

Thank you very much.

Thank you very much for the assistance.
