Troubleshooting
1. All the settings are correct, but I can not make a wireless connection to the
Access Point.
1. Double check that the wireless LED on the Access Point is lit.
2. Power cycle the Access Point. Unplug the power to the Access Point. Wait 15
seconds, then plug the power back in.
3. Contact the manufacturer of your wireless network adapter. Make sure the
wireless network adapter is configured with the proper SSID. The default SSID
of the Access Point is TRENDnet638. If you have enabled any encryption on
the Access Point, make sure to configure the wireless network adapter with the
same Pre-shared key.
2. I have a wireless adapter that supports WiFi Protected Setup (WPS) push
button setup. How do I setup WPS between the TEW-638APB and my wireless
adapter?
1. Press on the WPS button on the front of the TEW-638APB for 10 seconds.
2. Refer to your wireless adapters for instructions on setting up WPS.
3. I inserted the Utility CD-ROM into my computer's CD-ROM Drive but the
installation menu does not appear automatically. What should I do
1. For Windows 7, if the installation menu does not appear automatically, click on
the Windows Icon on the bottom left hand corner of the screen,, click the
“Search programs and files” box, and type D:\autorun.exe, where “D” in
“D:\autorun.exe” is the letter assigned to your CD-ROM Drive, and then press
the ENTER key on your keyboard
2. For Windows Vista, if the installation menu does not appear automatically, click
on the Windows Icon on the bottom left hand corner of the screen, click on the
“Start Searc”h box, and type D:\autorun.exe, where “D” in “D:\autorun.exe” is the
letter assigned to your CD-ROM Drive, and then press the ENTER key on your
keyboard.
3. For Windows XP/2000 if the window does not appear automatically, click Start,
click Run and type D:\autorun.exe where “D” in “D:\autorun.exe” is the letter
assigned to your CD-ROM Drive, and then press the ENTER key on your
keyboard.
4. I do not have a DHCP server or DHCP is disabled on my network and I am
unable to configure the TEW-638APB. What should I do?
1. Go to the TCP/IP settings on your computer and assign a static IP address on
your computer's network adapter in the subnet of 192.168.10.x. Since the
default IP address of the TEW-638APB is 192.168.10.100, do not assign a static
IP address of 192.168.10.100 on your computer's network adapter.
2. Open Internet Explorer and enter http://192.168.10.100 into the address bar.

5. I followed the Quick Installation Guide and setup a new password. When I log
in to the browser configuration an access error message appears. What should I
do?
If the password was changed and you don't remember it, you need to reset the
TEW-638APB. To reset the TEW-638APB, power up the unit and wait 30 seconds
for the unit to boot up. Then take a pin or paper clip and press the reset button for
15 seconds, then let go. The reset button is located on the bottom of the
TEW-638APB. Please note that performing a reset on the TEW-638APB will erase
all settings applied and will revert back to default settings. The default user name
is admin and the default password is admin. When you log in to the browser
configuration for the first time, make sure to enter admin for user name. Do not
leave the user name field blank.
