Angry D-Link WebSmart DES-1228 switch

Hi,

I'm having difficulties configuring a switch on my network. The solution may be simple, but I've tried everything and I can't seem to work it out.

Here is the problem:
The switch is functioning and is able to send traffic around my network as it should. However, the switch is not recognized as a device on the network and I can't connect to it to configure.

I've done a factory reset so the IP should be 192.168.0.1. The computer I'm trying to connect with is in the same subnet, but it just won't find the damn thing. I've tried a direct connection with nothing else on the network using manual IP setup and even with my router dealing with DHCP it doesn't seem to be reacquiring an IP.

Could somebody please help me?

Thanks.

Unless it's a managed switch, there likely isn't any configuration. What are you trying to do?

It is a managed switch. Read this pdf > http://www.dlinkla.com/sites/default...1252_v2.00.pdf

I just want to tweak some setings and use the switch to handle the DHCP then i can use the router I have just as a wireless access point.
