This one has been opened up and well searched with no luck.  And of course 
the ethernet snmp tool, wap11-gui, has not been buildable on linux since 
2.6.24, wayyyy back up the log from 2011.  I just did find a quad of pads 
to mount a teeny pushbutton to, labeled S901.  If the switch was installed, 
its operating stem would stick out, presumably flush, with a hole in the 
back edge of the pan, centered between the power socket and the usb port.  
The hole of course has not been drilled. ;)

This ones PCB is marked as "wireless AP, rev 3A1 5/18/2001".

I have downloaded the wap11 user manual from the linksys site, and will see 
if what I see makes sense while reading that.

According to the manual, the part I did read, windows has a tool to admin 
it over a usb circuit.  And its default ip is or some such if 
I read that right.

OTOH, I might be time ahead to go see what I can find for an AP at Staples 

Thanks, a lot.

Cheers, Gene
