Changing the IP address of your 802.11n wireless access point

If you now log onto your 802.11n wireless router by opening a browser window and going to the management console's IP address ie http://192.168.0.50 (for the D-Link-1522 access point), You will get to a login screen. After logging in as "admin", you can change various settings. I have accessed the LAN network page here to change the IP address of the DAP-1522 802.11n wireless access point to 192.168.1.2 - this puts it on the same network as my existing router.

Devices that comply with the 802.11n standard are designed to allow you to access super-fast wireless networking at home or in the office to support video conferencing, Skype, BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and access your music, video and pictures from a media server without any loss in quality. Here's how you upgrade an 802.11b and 802.11g network.

Here, Cliff Saran explains how to upgrade to a 802.11n network from his own experience, using a D-link DAP-1522 Xtreme N Duo device.
