I have a guru plug. that i recently acquired . I just changed the IP address range for the wifi access point - now i cannot login. I cahnged the subnet form the deafult 198.168.1 to 198.168.10  teh ap point works okay and i connect to it from my laptop and im assigned IP

but i cant access the plug through http nor ssh @

i dont have the JTAG adapter so cannot login. i figure i can cnnect using an ethernet cable [im away from the office and home so have no cables]
but i think i may still have the same problem.

please advice. thanks.

may be you changed the ip of the guruplug as well by mistake

I assume you connect to the wifi point of the guruplug? and not from another wifi?

if so you could try to renew the ip address and see what ip si actually giving you the renewal....that should be the guruplug access point

as root

dhclient <interface of your laptop>

actually the guruplug is not connected to another router. i used the online interface to change the range of addresses which also changes the subnet - that all i did.  I am connected to the guruplugs access point and it assigns me the ip but i can neither ping nor ssh to the guruplug itself which should be at
