I have a TrendNet TEW-735AP Wifi Access Point that I've been unable to access the admin pages on. I don't recall having had any issues when I first configured it, but I was unable to access the page, and didn't remember what passwords I might have set, so I did a factory reset and tried to start from scratch.
The manual suggests connecting wirelessly to it's SSID (TEW-735AP, after a factory reset), then trying to access the admin page at http://tew-735ap or at http://192.168.10.100. I have no problem connecting to the SSID with my Samsung Galaxy Tab 4, but neither Chrome nor the Samsumg Internet browser can access either page. (tew-735ap instantly returns ERR_NAME_NOT RESOLVED, 192.168.10.100 hangs a bit then returns ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT).
The alternative is to connect a cable from my computer to the TEW-735AP's network port. I've tried that, in various combinations, either alone or plugged into the network, and I've never been able to load the site.
Currently I have the TWE-735AP connected to the router that is hanging off my cable modem, and while I can't connect to its admin page, it's working fine. My tablet can connect to its SSID and can successfully browse around the net. But can't access the admin page, either by name or by IP, from either the tablet or any computer wired into the local network.
If I try to ping tew-735ap I get "unknown host".
If I try to ping 192.168.10.100, I get: "From icp_seq=xxx Packet filtered".
My guess was that since my router's dhcp is handing out IPs with subnet masks of 192.168.1.255, anything in 192.168.10.? was going out the cable modem. So I set the computer to a static IP with a mask of 192.168.255.255, and with that attempts to load the page time out, and pings simply never return.
Is there something simple and obvious I'm missing?
