Hi I need help fixing my router it is a
Sonicwall TZ190
I got it secondhand and up untill recently it was working fine.
I wanted to change the settings but the username and password was long gone
so I hit factory reset on the machine.It restarted in "safe mode" and gave me several options so I selected boot current version in factory default and the device reset and stopped working. The lights register correctly when a lan cable and other laptops are connected but the router isnt working, the computer recognises the router but says there is a connection error and all vista repair options didnt work. Any help anyone can give with this is greatly appreciated!!

You will have to reconfigure it by reading the following: http://www.sonicwall.com/app/projects/file_downloader/document_lib.php?t=PG&id=188&dl=1

Just got it working there, i fiddled with the ipv4 settings gave an alternative ip setting then went back to automatically find and it had an ip address! Worked it from there Im now trying to set up a wireless acess point through the wired router. All wires are good and the internet is working through it however I cant find its ip address too! its a "netgear prosafe 802.11g wireless access point wg102". So at the moment when I use it its open access which is not an option so I need to get the ip address to configure it properly.

Ive tried the default ip given in the manual but its not the one any ideas how to find it?
Oh also yeh I factory reset it before I did all this.

You will also need to configure the wireless device wired to it from a computer.
