Re: Trendnet 430APB 54Mbps 802.11 AP

If you press the reset button at the back holding it in for about 10 seconds, that should set it back to it's default. Then in your address bar log back into it. The default username is usually admin and sometimes the password is admin too. If not it's either password or there is no password so you can just press enter on your keyboard. This way you can set it up the way you want to. Just be aware that if you use WEP 128 bit, you have to have 26 characters as a password. If you use WPA PSK then you only need 8 characters. You should be able to access this from the word wireless in your options list. I would run the setup again first and then do all the configuration next. Lets hope this helps you out.

How to install a wireless access point

It's pretty simple and has a website where you can pull the quick installation instrucitons if you don't have them. Basically, you set your computer network card (the wired one) to an IP address in the same set as the Access Point's default address. It may be or 1.1, so you give your PC a 192.168.0 or 1. something but 1 address, plug a cable into the port on the AP, open Internet Explorer, and follow the login instructions. We tend to put our AP's at memorable numbers like 221 222 223 etc, or 251,252, whatever so we know where they are. Anyway, give it an address on your network, turn on security if you need to, then unplug it from your computer and back into the network. Reset your computer's network card to either a proper address or Obtain an address Automatically, and the AP should work.

Engenius eap-3660 access points channels chashing.

This is a massive and expensive network, which appears to require a full signal and configuration audit. It's quite possible that many of your problems are stemming from the APs you have already deployed being situated in suboptimal and conflicting locations, which is an issue with three-dimensional wireless networks.
I really don't see your problems being debugged by anyone short of an experienced on-site wireless network technician. I'm saying this as a person who tuns a one-man company serving two rural communities with wireless internet service.

  • Support site here

  • Quick setup here
Connect your PC to the router with a cable to one of the LAN connections - Now you need to Log into the setup of the router - to do that open a web browser, use Internet explorer (some routers setup pages do not work correctly with other browsers) In the browser address bar - Enter IP address to the address location. When there is a screen needs to enter the User name and Password, both of the default Username and Password is “admin”
Now you can goto the wireless section or secruity section and set the type of encyption to WEP, WPA, WPA-PSK etc and then make up your own password. See Page 12 of the User Manual
On the PC Double click on the wireless connection in the system tray (bottom right hand side of screen) and then connect manually to your wireless signal - you will be asked for the password you set in the router.
Now you are connected.
You may need to remove any old wireless profiles you have on the PC/Laptops

Cant get accesss to the configuration window

In order to get to the AP, and assuming you just plugged it in, you need to put everything in the 192.168.0.x domain. The AP defaults to, so you need to make sure that the router gives out IP addresses that does not include 0.50, or change the IP address of the AP. Likewise, the computer you are trying to log into the AP needs to start in the 192.168.0.x domain, with x being anything but the gateway address (normally 1), or 50.

My guess is you have a router built into the modem and it is giving out different addresses. You can set your network address by hand to be 192.168.0.pick a number like 5 and plug into the ethernet port of the AP (may need a crossover) to get to it.

Post back and let us know what you found.

Cant connect to the AP menu TEW-430APB

clear your browser cache, close, relaunch your browser and try again
You probably cant access it because you are not authorized. If its locked on your rooftop then your ISP should configure your access and that you're not authorized.

Failure in transmision

So are you saying you have two different wireless Access points for a small network? Could they be interfering with each other? I looked up the products and they seem a little more complex than a small network might need.

Maybe try only one at a time, and since you can connect via wire, you should be able to access the router/abp via the web page, and see what channel it is on and the ssid, and verify that the wireless features are on. After that, try rebooting the apb, waiting a few minutes, and do a search for wireless networks.

I would not expect a random failure on both transmission and reception, so breaking it down to each component may help. Can any wireless network search see either ap when only one is active?

I wold recommend a single, simple consumer wireless router, dlink or netgear maybe, as they have seemed a bit more straight forward to me than the trendnet faqs I pulled up. If the investment is sunk, trying the above may help narrow the problem.
