I am working on a new server (and yes, this is my first time setting up a server). It's a Windows 2008 R2 Server. Currently, I'm having trouble finding and configuring two wireless access points. The wireless repeaters are Motorola model AP-7131.
So far, I've enabled the Wireless LAN on the server. The access points are physically installed successfully and they have power. The ethernet cords for the access points are routed through a switch hub. For now (and only in adminstrator mode, the "Enhanced Internet Security" has been disabled). The instructions from Motorola are to A) Open a browser and
type in http://10.1.1.1
This is supposed to take me to the configuration screen where I am to sign in with the given user name and password. Instead, all I get is the message, "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page". So, after googling around I found a possible solution; connect the ethernet cord from one of the access points to one of the ports on the server. I tried that, to no avail...same bleeping message. After googling some more, I tried manually changing the IP address on the port to which one of the wireless points was connected to something similar (I think I used 10.1.1.9) again, unsuccesful.
I mentioned this is the first time setting up a server and I may be missing a step in setting up the wireless LAN...I don't know...there is no wireless adapter that I can find so I don't think it's that. I'm tired of googling, Motorola wants me to buy an expensive software service package for what will probably be a one time need and I'm at my wits end. Any suggestions would be helpful....
