Really need some help with a wirless router

My roomate and I recently got a Netgear RangeMax NWireless Access Point WPN802, and we attempted to follow all of the steps to set it up but when we get to one it just doesn't work. We first have to change our static IP address and subnet mask and then plug in the ethernet chord to a laptop. Next we are supposed to go to the browser and enter in an IP address into the address bar. Ex: http: . However when we do this (even though you are able to go to other websites), we just get "cant find this page" error. Trying it repeatedly doesn't seem to work. Anyone else have this problem or know what to do?? It's a pretty common router. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think your router is not "broadcasting". Try reconnecting all the cables and change the antenna position. If that doesn't work, you probably have a bad router.

This is an access point not a router. Does the access point have an IP address within the same range as your router?
