Simple yet frustrating question: I had to pull back some Linksys SRW2016 and SRW2024 switches on a repo of leased equipment from an old customer. They went out of business and did not provide IP addresses of the switches for proper management. I am needing to either reset the unit or discover the IP address of each of these switches. Is there a tool or some way of getting into this unit to reset it?

I have tried to Scan for any IP address open for 10., 172., and 192 internal octets but getting nothing. Any ideas?

I have not tryed this but you might try connecting the serial cable and connecting with hyperterminal then pwrcycle the unit and issue a break command to bypass login security. Not sure what break cmd is for this unit but some web searching may help.
