Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I recently bought a pocket AP D Link G730AP and I've been stuck trying to configure it on my home PC. Once the device is turned on I need to conect it to my LAN network and change the LAN adapter's IP to the 192.168.0.x range (I used 192.168.0.15), however, I cannot manage to access the AP admin page that should show up on http://192.168.0.30. The Subnet mask is correct (255.255.255.0) and I've tried resetting the AP, reinstalling Windows (tried with windows 8 & 7) but the admin just won't show up.

The end goal here is to be able to change the AP's LAN address to the 192.168.137.x range which is the one used by Windows 7+ to use ICS to share internet with my Macbook and my iPhone by connecting from the mentioned PC, however I need to configure the AP first and is not happening, any ideas?

Just for reference, here is the dump from ipconfig /all on the machine with the AP.
