Remote access to the TP-Link router via the Internet-cloud service TP-Link ID-registration and adding a device

The cloud function of TP-Link ID appeared in the new models of devices of this company for remote connection and access to the router via the Internet from a computer or phone. This is necessary for an emergency change in any settings or rebooting the router. Beginners have a fair question what TP-Link ID is and where to get it? Today I will show how to register in this cloud service, get access to the router and use TP-Link ID remotely through a computer browser or a mobile smartphone application.

TP-Link ID is a user account in the cloud service of the TP Link router.

We have already encountered cloud services on routers of other manufacturers who managed to introduce it a little earlier than TP-Link. Its essence is to have access to the router’s settings not only being directly connected to its Wi-Fi signal, but also remotely, via the Internet. Thus, it becomes possible to manage a home or working network, being far beyond the premises anywhere in the globe. Convenient, is it not true?

On what models the remote access on TP-Link ID works?

The cloud access function through TP-Link ID works only on expensive models and medium price segment. For example, on the Archer series. C1200, C2. The most budgetary ones, such as TL-WR820N, do not support it. As well as popular TL-WR842ND, TL-WR840N, TL-WR841N, WR740N and WR741ND in its first modifications (audits). In any case, whether it will be possible to connect to the network through the cloud specifically on your router, you need to look in the technical specifications.

In order to get remote control of the TP-Link router with access over the Internet, you must first register in TP-Link ID. To do this, first of all, you need to log in to the router under the administrator account. This can be done both from the computer through the browser at the IP address of the router, and from the smartphone through the TP-Link Tether program. At the end of the article I will show where exactly this setting is located in it, and for now it starts with PC.

Open the “Basic Settings” tab and go to the “TP-Link cloud” section

And click on the “Register now” button

To create an account, you need to indicate your email, set the password and agree with the service rules.

After that, an email will be sent to the email data to complete the registration at TP-Link ID.

Confirm it and authorize it. Information about your account will be displayed on the page, and the current router will be attached to it-now you can manage Wi-Fi remotely.

Another point-since now the router is tied to this account, in order to get into his personal account, it will not be necessary to enter the local administrator, as it was before, but to be authorized in the cloud service of TP-Link ID

Where the network works

The project was launched in 2014. Then passengers of the most visited wagons could use the free Internet. The network continued to expand.

Now you can connect to the free Internet in transport marked by the MT Free icon:

The speed of the connection is not normalized and is very different on different segments of the path. “Drawings” in the work of the Internet are especially noticeable in metro trains. Despite the fact that access points are placed in wagons, Wi-Fi in the subway often disappears.

You can connect to the network using any mobile device: tablet, smartphone, laptop. In some vehicles, free Wi-Fi is designated as VMET.Ro. This is the same network, just with an alternative name.

Advantages and disadvantages

The unified wireless Internet, like any project, has certain advantages and minuses. The advantages of MT FRI include:

  • Scale. You can access free Internet in almost all public transport and St. Petersburg. New Wi-Fi points are regularly commissioned.
  • It’s free. The project was launched and developed to increase the comfort of life in cities. Pay for MT Free Wi-Fi to connect to your mobile device, you do not need.
  • Convenient authorization. If you have a profile on the public services website, you can connect to the network in 1-2 minutes. Confirm the phone number is not necessary.

Disadvantages of free urban Internet:

  • Frequent cliffs of communication. When confirming authorization, access codes do not reach users or come to SMS when the passenger has already left the transport. The reason for this problem is the loading of servers.
  • Low signal level. The widespread opening of new access points cannot solve the problem with the quality of the coating. At an hour-rush in the subway to connect to free Wi-Fi is very difficult. Equipment installed in wagons is not adapted to work with so many users.
  • Advertising. After authorization on MT FRI, the user demonstrates many advertisements. With an unstable connection, this still interferes with the normal loading of the pages. You can get rid of intrusive advertising using Adblock, but it is not very convenient to use it on low.power smartphones and tablets.

Determination of IP addresses

To open the router settings on the computer, you need to find out the address of the router. Through it, access is made to the control panel. Without the address, you will have to take a lot of unnecessary actions, so it is better to know or write it down so as not to lose before the next connection. There are several ways to find out the address of connection to the router. We list them from simple to more complex.

On the label

If you have a new device and you install it for the first time, then everything is simple. Turn the device and find on the label IP address to enter the router. It can be alphabetic (as an address of the site) or in numbers with points.

Even if the router is not new, still check whether the standard address is suitable or not. It is rarely changed.

Windows 7/10

If the router has already spoiled and the Internet connection is preserved on the PC, then you can find out the desired address from there.

  • Click the right mouse key along the computer icon next to the clock;
  • We go to the “Networks and total access control center”;
  • Select “Changing the parameters of the adapter”;
  • Select an active connection and press PKM already on it;
  • Click on the “state”;
  • Then “information”;
  • Find the default gateway, this is the right address.

In the top ten everything is slightly different. We go along the way launch Parameters Panel of Management Network and the Internet Center for Networks Management and General Access Changing the Adapter Parameters.

Here again click on an active connection, choose a “condition”, and in it select “Information”. The gateway address will also be visible here.

IP address and passwords table

In case the sticker was erased or fell off, and the data for the entrance is forgotten, use the table with standard addresses, logins and passwords to enter the admin panel of different brands of routers. This is information that is known now, over time it can become irrelevant for new models.

The most common combination for many models is Admin/Admin. Standard address or

Entrance to the control panel

Basically, the setting of the router passes through the browser. You can make it from almost any device that can connect to the Internet or local network. Enter the address that you picked up in the last points in the address line of the browser. Enter the username, password, sets the settings page (Adminantel).

On the cable

After the wired connection, it remains only to open any browser. Enter the router’s address and log in by entering the login and password. You will be transferred to the main page of the router web.

By Wi-Fi

When the first connection, not all routers will be able to use a wireless network. In most modern models, such an opportunity is. But not all models immediately create a Wi-Fi network. If the router was already once configured, then you can get into the settings of the router through Wi-Fi.

Perhaps you do not know how to get into the router settings through a wireless network. Just open the list of networks, select the router network, enter the password from it and connect.

At the first setting, questions will surely arise which network to choose and what to introduce. We remind you: see the label on the router. Usually SSID. network name, wireless password/pin. password.

Enter the router address in the browser and data for the entrance. This method is available both from the phone and from the laptop.

Appendix for the phone

This method is not suitable for old router models.

Some companies for the latest models produce special applications. You can download them in official stores AppStore and Playmarket absolutely free.

Almost every popular brand has its own application:

After downloading and installing the application, you need to connect to the Wi-Fi router network. Next, go to the application in the list, select our model. Then you need to enter the user name (login) and password. It remains only to configure the device.

How to find the entrance page on the public Wi-Fi: Lifehack

Depending on where you live, there are many places in which you can connect to Wi-Fi for free so that you can work or study remotely, or avoid restriction of Internet traffic on your smartphone installed by a cellular operator (if your mobile mobile operator The Internet is not unlimited). Fortunately, free Wi-Fi can be caught in restaurants, cafes, stations, airports, shops, business centers, some shopping complexes, some parks, etc. D. But there is one problem: public networks usually make the process of connecting quite annoying. So, for example, between you and the wireless network, as a rule, in the process of connection, intermediate pages of the entrance occur, where, before gaining access to the Internet, you need to log in.

Most of these publicly available Wi-Fi networks require users to authorize using a mobile phone or email, agreeing with the restrictions on using Internet access, and also confirmed their identity. This is often a tedious process. But even worse, when these pages of entering the system are not displayed automatically. As a result, having connected to any network, you cannot go on the Internet until you are authorized. But what if the form/authorization of the public network does not automatically appear automatically?

Fortunately, you have a few tricks to force this process to be forcibly if the entrance pages do not load on your device that connected to a public open network.

Reload your device or reset Wi-Fi settings

The first and easiest is to restart your device. If you do not want to make a full restart, you can help you simple turning on and off Wi-Fi on your device. After you completely restarted the smartphone or tablet (or turned on and turned off Wi-Fi), try to connect to the wireless network again and open some web site to start the entry process into the system.

If this does not work, try the next step: try to force the entrance page installed by default in the router (router) of a public network. There are several universal web addresses that can redirect you to the entrance page to the network router system. So, having connected to the Wi-Fi network, turn on your web browser (Safari, Google Chrome, Yandex Brazour, Firefox, and T. D.) and enter the name Routerlogin in the browser period.Net by pressing the input. In most cases, this will help to automatically make a redirect to the authorization page of the public network, to which you connected. And if this does not work, try to introduce these web addresses alternately:

If none of the above methods work, perform the following actions in your device and repeat the attempt:

Registration on the metro on the Wi-Fi MT_FREE network for public transport of your convenience, so that there are no questions left on how to connect to Wi-Fi in the subway, I will sign each step in detail. It all starts with registration on the network. This inconvenience is created for a reason. According to the law, a person when using a free Internet in public places, which the metro belongs to, must undergo authorization by phone number. So that scammers could not use it anonymously for their black divisions.

    So, to connect to Wi-Fi, whether it be a metro, bus, trolley, tram or train, you need to find a network with the name Mt_free.

To one number you can attach 5 devices, including gadgets that do not have a SIM card.

The whole joke is that, as you know, not all operators work inside the tunnel or the quality of communication is bad. Therefore, in anticipation of SMS, you can easily drive your stop easily-be careful

This trouble can be avoided if you have your own personal account on the public service website. It is possible to use it for authorization in Wi-Fi in the subway for this it is simply necessary instead of entering the phone number to indicate your username and password from the portal of the electronic government and enter the Internet.

Authorization of Wi-Fi in the subway and ground transport

After the login, the MT-Free Wi-Fi network will automatically open the Gowifi authorization (vmet.RO). Since we have already registered, the Internet entrance will happen automatically without entering any additional data. We just choose now the option “enter the Internet” and wait for about a minute while the commercials are scrolling.

For impatient, it is possible to disable advertising, but this service is already provided for your blood. At the dawn of the era of widespread settlement of wireless Internet in transport, I practiced using the mobile version of the advertising block, and he was triggered in the case of connecting to Wi-Fi in the metro. However, the Metro ITSHROVER TRANSLE this chip and learned to block this method of bypassing advertising. until you look, you are not supposed to be any Internet. But this will be discussed in a separate article.

Buy a portable () router

Portable (portable) router, or as it is also called-LTE ROUTER. The choice of this device will become indispensable on any trip or rest outside the city. In such conditions, finding Wi-Fi is very difficult, and this router will be the best choice. LTE router allows you to receive the Internet in essence through the air within the coverage of certain mobile suppliers. Therefore, the search for Wi-Fi networks will no longer be a problem, since you can transmit mobile traffic to all devices into which the corresponding module is built. All users will use the Internet from the router in accordance with the tariff plan connected to it. There is no restriction on the number of connected devices.

To ensure your safety and confidentiality, we recommend always using VPN for PC

We find and connect to a hidden Wi-Fi network

Very often, Internet users hide their home wireless networks so that scammers cannot find Wi-Fi, hack it and harm personal data. Unlike the rest of the networks to which only the password requires, hidden networks require the name of the network to connect (SSID). Without this data, no one can connect to such a network, but there are a couple of ways to find like a similar Wi-Fi around themselves. If a similar network is located in the detection zone of your device, then in the list it will be displayed along with others as a “hidden network”, or “other networks”. On the latter, the Windows version will be enough just to choose the option of a hidden network and enter all the necessary data to the corresponding fields. On older versions, you can connect to such networks directly via network settings by selecting the “connection to the wireless network manually”.

Open and affordable Wi-Fi networks are certainly very convenient, as it does not force you to perform any additional actions to gain Internet access. But this entails a direct threat, since such networks are not encrypted by any high.level security protocols. In essence, with proper dexterity, a hacker or fraudster will easily intercept the traffic coming from you, and will be able to access your banking data or personal gallery. But what is the most unpleasant in all this, you may not even know that it happened. You can drink your morning coffee in a cafe near work, and the hacker will already have all your passwords and access to personal data. Based on this, think about your security on the Internet and connect VPN so that your traffic is securely encrypted and cannot go to scammers.

Other ways to get access to Wi-Fi at the airport

If there is no desire to use the interrupted “free” wireless connection, you can use services that determine public or private access points:

Instabridge and Wi-Fi Map. But these are only assistants who determine the type of network, they do not solve the problem completely.

Flio application is an information service for travelers containing airport data. With it, different Wi-Fi networks at the airport are quickly located. The analogue is the App in the Air, which also allows you to find a lot of information without even being online.

Be careful, do not provide relevant personal information

If access to free Wi-Fi at the airport is opened under the condition of providing personal data (name, address, favorite color), do not rush to upload truthful information. No need to be shy to indicate fake data that will have fun who are engaged in their processing.

To avoid viewing advertising or meaningless surveys, use technical tricks. Enter Routerlogin.NET to the address bar of the browser and press Enter, after which the transition to the “connection” page will take place. The following options also work:

eight.eight.eight.8 (Google DNS server);;;

Before connecting to the free Wi-Fi, VPN should be activated to protect personal information from entering anniversary marketers or attackers.

What you need to connect

To connect to Wi-Fi, you need two things: to be in the area of ​​the network signal, as well as know its name and password. When you connect a mobile phone to your home Internet, all the necessary information can be viewed on the router. To connect to the network in the cafe, you need to find out the password from the administrator. For a non.parallel connection of WPS, access to the router is necessary. In some cases, additional information will be required: IP address or the address of the proxy server to configure Wi-Fi on the phone manually.

In different operating systems, the Inte Weights differs, however, the algorithm is the same: you need to turn on Wi-Fi on the phone, find the right Wi-Fi network and enter a password. We will analyze these actions in instructions.


To connect Wi-Fi on the Android smartphone through a router, we first check whether Wi-Fi is turned on. Open the panel at the top of the screen. Just pull her with your finger down. There you will see a wi-fi icon. If he is not active, click on him.

If you do not have such a badge in the panel, Wi-Fi will have to turn on through the smartphone settings. This is usually the image of the gear in the menu or on the main screen.

In the settings, you need to find the section “Network and the Internet” and activate a wireless connection there by moving the Wi-Fi switch to the “VKL” position.

Now we move directly to the connection to the network.

In the section “Network and the Internet”, click on Wi-Fi. A list of available networks will appear. Choose the one you are going to connect. In the next window, you will need to enter a password and click “Connect”.

When the connection is installed, the wi-fi icon will appear at the top of the screen.

If the router to which you connect is active, the WPS function is active. You can enter the network without a password. To do this, in the Wi-Fi section on the phone, select “Additional Functions” and click “WPS button”.

After you do this, press the WPS button on the router. It is usually located on the case on the side.

This is a convenient and quick way to connect to Wi-Fi. However, such an option is not on all phones. If you have not found it, then you have to enter a password.

Everything works here just as simple. Open “Settings” and find the section “Wi-Fi”. We move the flag to the “inclusive” position.

Search for available Wi-Fi networks will start automatically. Choose the right one and click on it. In the next window, enter the password.

For some reason, IOS developers have forgotten about WPS, so this method of connection is not available.

Windows Phone

Configure Wi-Fi with a phone under Windows you can according to this scheme. Open the list of programs and find the “Settings” item there. Go to Wi-Fi section. Here, as well as in the two previous cases, you need to transfer the switch to the “inclusive” position. After that, the phone will display wireless networks nearby. Select the necessary, click on it and enter the access key.

Connection to a hidden network

Some networks may not be visible, since the administrator turned off the SSID broadcast on the Router (network name) for security purposes. You can also connect to such a network, but for this, in addition to the password, you need to know its name.

The connection algorithm is this. On Android in the Wi-Fi section, click the “Add network” button.

A window will appear in which you need to enter the SSID network, indicate the type of encryption (usually WPA/WPA2. PSK) and enter the password.

This procedure must be done once. In the future, the smartphone will be connected to a hidden network automatically.

The iPhone performs exactly the same actions. In the Wi-Fi settings, click “Another Network”, enter its name, indicate the type of protection and password.

If iOS does not want to connect to the network, maybe you need to configure the connection manually.

Remote access to the router via TP-Link ID from the phone

To bind the remote access to the router from the smartphone via the TP-Link Tether mobile application, you need to open the “Tools” menu and go to the “TP-LINK ID” section of the same name

Then we either enter an existing account, or start a new

For registration, we also indicate email, set the password and agree with the rules

And tie our router to a new account

After which it will be displayed as the owner of the device.

But it is also possible to add additional network administrators, which can similarly enter the settings remotely.

Such access through the cloud service can only be made for tp-link? Or there are other manufacturers of routers who may have it? The situation is this: there is no “white” IP-shnik and will not be, but I want to get access. It turns out that through the cloud service TP-Link is possible. And other manufacturers as? Thanks.

In principle, the situation is as follows. Previously, the house was the Makovsky router Apple Airport Express. It has USB. A disc was connected to it for 2 TV. House and work are in one targeted field, so from work on IP I went to the disk freely. Well, I used it as a network and from home and from work. Then the router glitted, I bought a new. Chinese Xiaomi Mi Router 3. It has USB. But. К сожалению подключиться к диску можно только «изнутри» сети дома, с работы никак. But you can connect only from the phone. From the computer offers a Chinese program. and this is an ambush. A program without translation. I am considering a variant of any other router, but so that you can connect to it, so to speak, from the outside. “White” IP is not free and will not be. But the “cloud” service greatly interested me. Therefore, the question about the manufacturer of routers arose. Apparently, TP-Link will make it possible to use my disk as a kind of FTP server around the world. Or maybe who has such an opportunity? All the same, the presence of a choice is a big such buzz! Thanks!

In Keenetic, this possibility is also conveniently implemented. ASUS and D-LINK had their DDNS services, but I have not seen new models for a long time, maybe they have already moved there to the cloud.

Already answered, in Keenetic, the cloud is also well implemented. Xiaomi can only be used in the firmware from Padavan, but there is no cloud service in it, of course
