I got a smart swtich that when entering the default password (admin) wont give me access to the mainframe(192.168.0.1). I was told to hold the reset switch at the back for 15sec while there was power to the unit.
any chance you can provide info like the make and model number of the switch?
TEG 240ws by Trendnet.
there's 4 different types of those apparently
the manual for the one I looked at says the reset switch will restore factory defaults, and that the default password is 'admin'
didn't see anything about holding it in for 15 seconds tho
quickstart guide for the same device says:
"4. I forgot the administration password. How do I reset my TEG-160WS/TEG-240WS?
Press on the reset button using a pen or paperclip for 10 seconds. The default password is admin."
It is definately the Trendnet admin login. My netgear router use to be the same aswell but i changed it to 192.168.0.2 a long time ago.
3rd reset and no go.
did you take the power out when you reset it?
turns out with a software utilitly i can do some basic s***, ie. change password, enable/disable DHCP, set trap, upgrade firmware.
But still can access full settings through the web GUI. Tried to update firmware and it reckons it's illegal firmware.
I'm thinking someone flashed it with the wrong firmware and I cant go back.
Is the device you're trying to connect with the only device connected to the switch?
and the switch isn't a part of a stack already is it?
3 puters, ps3, router.
put it into recovery mode & tftp the firmware to it? My router supports that, I dunno if your switch will
