"had no success" is not very descriptive.  Exactly what happened? 
Exactly what was in the error and access logs?

No space between allow, and deny please.

The deny is evaluated last according to the allow statement and
therefore denies all access.  I think you want "Order deny,allow". 
Iff what you want is to allow from 192.168 OR if the person has a
password, then you also need to add "Satisfy Any".
