Can't access web-interface on SG 200-08 switch

I'm a networking newbie, but I bought the SG 200-08 switch to do Link Aggregation with and I can't access the web interface.  I'm on a mac running 10.7.3, and I've tried Firefox and Safari.  I've also tried on a friends PC with Internet Explorer 8.

On the mac, I can go into the terminal and can see that the switch has the correct IP address and is seen on both ethernet ports:

? (192.168.1.254) at 2c:36:f8:4f:fc:8 on en0 ifscope [ethernet]

? (192.168.1.254) at 2c:36:f8:4f:fc:8 on en1 ifscope [ethernet]

I need help with either accessing the web interface or with setting up the Link Aggregation on the switch some other way.

Thanks,

Steve

Ahhh, there's the problem.

You actually have to change the IP addres of your computer.  Look at these steps here:

http://www.ehow.com/how_2091900_change-mac-ip-address.html

Once you change your IP address (go ahead and match the settings I posted), you should be able to pull up the web interface of that switch (after plugging your computer directly into the switch). 

When you're done configuring it, make sure you click the save icon in the top of the window.  If you don't, restarting the switch will wipe the config you made.

What did you set your private IP, subnet and gateway as?

On my PC, I had to set the private IP (mine was 192.168.1.5), subnet (255.255.255.0) and gateway (192.168.1.254) in order to access it. 

Also, it looks like it takes about five minutes after the switch starts for the onboard server to fully initialize.

Also also, ensure that you don't plug the switch into a live network with a DHCP server until you've got it configured...otherwise, the switch with grab a DHCP address by default. 

I'm not sure how I would use those settings.  Sorry.  I've very new to this and don't know PC's very well.

The instructions in the manual simply say to type in the IP address of the switch into the browser.

I just tried again on the PC.  I powered up the switch and waited about 10 minutes to connect that directly to the PC.  In IE, I went to Tools:Internet Options:Security:Local Intranet:Sites:Advanced and added http://192.168.1.254  (I read in a longer Cisco manual that this was required when using IE 8)

After doing this I typed "http://192.168.1.254" into the IE 8 browser, and I get the error "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

That was it.

Thank you so much!!
