Connection and configuration of the router TP-Link

Router. an ideal device for creating network. But many people have problems when setting it up. In this article, we will talk about how to set up the TP-Link router.

You brought the router home and have already opened the box. Excellent. You should be in front of you, a passport, a disk with software, a network cable and a router itself. Let’s start setting up Wi-Fi router:

    starts with the connection of the device. It is advisable to place it at close range to the computer, The manufacturer provides a small cable included. We connect the router to the power supply and insert it into the outlet.

  • We connect the router to the network. To do this, we are looking for a blue nest, under which there is an inscription “Wlan”. We stick into it a wire that is included. Ports Wan and LAN. Wan. input Internet. LAN. local network (connecting local devices)
  • Connect with the computer. We use another wire, sticking it into one of the yellow connectors on the router. The other part of the wire must be connected to the port on your PC, which is on its reverse side. Connect the patch cord to the LAN Router connector, the other end to the computer connector

Let’s look at the buttons and connectors that you can find at your router:

  • Start and shutdown button.
  • Power supply connector.
  • Wan. Blue port to which the network cable is connected.
  • Lan. Yellow port that is needed to connect to a computer.
  • Button to start the QSS function. It is used in order to connect your phone, tablet, TV or laptop to Wi-Fi without using a password without using a password.
  • Reset. Designed to fully return the device to factory settings.

Almost all ports and buttons on the router are signed, which will allow them to find them easily.

We figured out the router and connected.

Before further setting, it is recommended to reset the device to factory settings.

Take a thin needle, carefully insert it into Reset and hold on for 10 seconds.

We set up the router

So, you connected the device to PC. Now let’s go to the TP-Link router settings. For this:

  • We launch absolutely any browser. Looking for an address line and enter a special IP address into it. You can find it on the back of your device. Login/password on the rear panel of the router Address bar of the browser
  • After the previous paragraph, you are invited to enter a login and password. To find them enough, as, in that case, turn your router over. If you are too lazy to look, then enter the standard. admin/admin.

Let’s update the firmware before moving on. Go to the site “ “. This is the official site of the manufacturer of your equipment. Find the model of your device there and download the latest version of the firmware. Rubbing it. Return to the Web Inteete of your router. We are looking for the System Tools menu item and go on an upgrade of equipment. There, using Browse, indicate the installed file.

  • You need to install the login and password for network. To do this, find the System Tools item. In the drop.down menu, click on Password. In the window that appears, it is necessary to fill out all the fields. In the lines of OLD we introduce admin/admin. Fill the rest of your own free will. We save.
  • Return to the left side of the web integrant. Click on the “Network” item, and then on “WAN”. Next, you need to set the type of network. It all depends on your provider, so it is better to check this moment with him. After setting, do not forget to save.
  • Now in Network we select the Mac Clone item. There just be pressed on the lower button, which closes the upper address. We save.
  • We are looking for Wireless. Open setting. Next, enter the SSID into the desired line. If desired, indicate your region.
  • We move to Wireless Security. In the Password field we enter the password. Be sure to remember it to use a Wi-Fi network.

Excellent. You completely finished with setting. If you wish, you can restart your router.

Various problems with the router

Now let’s talk about some possible errors when setting up and after it.

If you forgot the password, you must return your router to factory settings. This is done using a thin needle and button “Reset”. Press and wait for about 10 seconds. After this procedure, we set up the equipment again.

Reset button on a router. Router reset: the button is drowned, press it with a thin object and hold it for 10-15 seconds

In cases where it is not possible to go to the web Inteete Router TP Link, you need to try to return the device to factory settings. You can also use another browser for this.

If your device does not see a Wi-Fi network, then try to bring it closer to the router. If this did not help, then go to the web integer and turn on the visibility for all devices.

There are also such moments when problems are caused by the breakdown of the device. In controversial cases, you can contact a professional who will help you solve this issue.

How to connect and configure a wi-fi router. Setting up a wifi router tp link

Setting up the router D Link Dir 300: in detail, by points

Connection and configuration of the ASUS RT-N11P router

Let’s summarize

Setting a wi-fi router is not at all difficult. The English Inte Wear is scared, but if you follow the above instructions, then you will succeed.

About the same algorithm for setting up the zyxel router, interesting ? The article here is as follows

Entrance and through the browser

Since mobile gadgets do not have a LAN port, the only way to go to the router via a phone or tablet is to connect to its Wi-Fi network. If you know his password, then this is not a problem. And if this is a new router, which was just pulled out of the box and were going to connect to the provider?! And here is nothing complicated! We turn it over and look for the sticker in which the model is indicated, serial number and other information about the device.

Here, for example, how it looks at Keenetic’s:

As you can notice, the sticker says the name of the wireless network, which for convenience, manufacturers make consisting of the name of the manufacturer and the last signs of the hardware network address-TP-Link_2205, Keenetic-4155, RT-WIFI_21F2 and T.P. Wi-Fi password is also usually written there. If it is not written, then the access is open, that is, without a password!

In general, start the Wi-Fi networks on your mobile phone, find yours in the list of detected nets and connect to it as usual:

After you successfully get up to Wi-Fui, you need to start the browser on the phone and enter the search bar with the rower address from the sticker.

The address of the router in the local network, the login and password for entering the web-intake are written in a plate glued on its case.

This is what the entrance to the router from the phone to the address 192 looks for the router TP-Link:

After entering a login or password, if they are entered correctly, a status page should appear, which indicates all the information about the work of the access device at the moment. Then you can start setting up the router through the phone or tablet.

Go along the QR code through the phone

Separately, I want to talk about a very convenient way to enter the router settings-through a QR code. Now more and more manufacturers have begun to resort to what tricks. Knowing that many will want to configure the router through the phone, they print an additional QR code on its sticker, which contains all the necessary data-the name and password of Wi-Fi, IP address or URL for entering.

QR code from the stickers will help to go faster to the router through the phone. Just enter the camera and scan it!

At first, Xiaomi and Keenetic did this, and later other manufacturers began to adopt this practice. Now often there is often no need to install a special qr scanner application-on many modern phones, this is already a full-time camera.

Just pick up a smartphone in our hands, launch a camera on it, scan the code. Further, after recognition, a web browser with the right address will be open-usually, or, less often, any other address is used.

Is it possible to carry out the procedure tuning without the help of a specialist and the use of PC

Most routers do not have a separate screen or buttons to manage functions. All settings are carried out only through a special menu, which can be connected using a device. The smartphone can also act as such a device. First you connect to the network via wi-fi. After that, you get into a specialized menu.

Many routers have a built-in fast settings function, which even a person who is not an IT specialist will be able to configure after the launch. In general, a change in individual parameters does not cause difficulties among users. The main thing is to conduct the procedure in stages and according to the instructions.

How to set up a router through the phone (for example tp-Link)

Now we set up a router through a browser on a smartphone. To do this, we perform the following steps:

  • Run on a smartphone (iPhone) a search engine, for example, Yandex or Chrome.
  • We enter the IP address or URL of the router’s IP or URL, the address can be found on the sticker on the back of the device. The address will look like this IP: or how this IP:

When entering the login and password, pay attention to the upper and lower register. By default, all mobile devices make the first letter title. Password and Login are written only in class letters.

Wireless security setting

The protection of the Wi-Fi network is very important for the user, since the penetration of unauthorized persons can affect the speed of connection, which is significantly slowed down. There is also the possibility of reading various data and passwords from a smartphone connected to an unprotected network.

First you need to configure Wi-Fi. The line “Wireless mode” clicks in the left column. There are several functions that require viewing. In this integration, “wireless settings” open.

In the first line on top, you need to come up with a name for your network, which will be seen for all connected gadgets. Should be introduced in English.

Below is a country for the correct operation of the router.

The next line indicates the standard of operation of the device, indicating at what frequency (2.4 GHz, 5 GHz) and at what maximum speed the data is transmitted. The operating mode of the router is usually set. 802.11BGN mixed with a maximum speed of up to 600 Mbit/s. In our case, the RUMSTICER of the NT series at a speed of up to 300 Mbit/s. Mode 802.11 AC (up to 6 Gbit/s) is used if the device is a

Folders for turning on the broadcasting network broadcast and SSID are automatically displayed. If you remove the broadcasting of SSID, then the name of the custom connection will not be displayed for gadgets and you will have to constantly create a network and enter its name. This is not very convenient for home use. Such additional protection is good for legal entities, when work on the network is done with important data.

The WDS function involves the connection of several routers into one Wi-Fi mode to expand the network covering. By default, there is no check.

The next step will be the opening of the “wireless regime protection” function.

In the Wi-Fi protection intensity, authentication version is set in the upper line. Often it is recommended WPA2-PSK password protection. You can leave an open network in general, noting the first line in the “Disable Protection” list, which is undesirable, even if you use services in a private house at a distance from other neighbors.

WPA (WPA2).psk-this protection uses one password that is stored in the memory of the router. This encryption is convenient to use at home. It is considered more modern, not amenable to decryption than Wi-Fi network users.

WPA also provides for Enterprise shifts located in the integration below. Here a prerequisite is confirming the access of the one who wants to enter the wireless network. This confirmation is obtained by checking the user database in a special Radius server. Such protection is convenient for public organizations and companies with a wide network.

Another function of setting up wireless mode is “filtering MAC addresses”. This is rather the function of the administrator than the protective. Since, if desired, the MAC address of the device is faked, and the addresses permitted in the system can be stolen by unauthorized persons through hacker programs. Filtering will be convenient, for example, to disconnect a certain gadget belonging to a child or office worker from the network.

Another way is to allow access for certain MAC addresses belonging to the owner of the router. This function will become an additional protection of WLAN-connection.

To take advantage of such protection, the first step must be enabled the filtration of addresses in the upper part of the open window.

Next, select the type of filtration in the form of a ban or resolution of connected devices. Below is required to click on the “Add” panel.

A new integse window will open. Here the address of the device is fed, which should be allowed or prohibited to connect, the “Save” function is pressed below.

The last line in the Wi-Fi settings-“Wireless Statistics” allows you to determine the number of devices connected to the network and their MAC address to verify extraneous annexation.

From the above, it becomes clear how to set up a router without a computer, in particular wireless mode. Next, consider some important points required during the operation of the router.

System tools setting

The “System Tools” function helps to install a time zone, the version of the new software, make a reboot of the router since not all devices are equipped with the ON/OFF button, which is easy to reload, and it is not always convenient to turn off the power supply from the outlet.

To open time settings, the mouse is the line “System tools”.

From open functions, “Time Settings” is selected.

At the top, a time zone is selected. If desired, a check of the summer time is turned on and the beginning and end of the action of this period is prescribed. All data is saved.

The list of system tools has a software reset to factory settings. Usually they use it in the presence of errors in the work of the router, if the reboot does not help.

The reloading line is located below, it should be primarily used in case of failures in the operation of the router.

The last important point is a change of password to enter the router so that strangers and children do not have admission to their settings. To do this, clicks in the left column “Password”.

Then the previous versions of the name and password (admin) and the new name and password are fitted. The conservation is necessarily pressed.

As a result, you can configure a router from the phone, as well as from a computer, only using a WLAN connection.

How to configure the protection of the router through the phone

For the operation, the equipment is launched again, the entrance passes through the new network name and the old code (taken from the sticker). Then the necessary parameters are installed:

  • From the main menu, the transition to “Protection of the wireless regime” is made;
  • The type of security is selected-preference is given to WPA2-PSK;
  • The encryption algorithm is established. AES;
  • A cipher for PSK, originally set for a virtual line is prescribed;
  • After maintaining the changes, the device is disconnected from the network connection.

In the device you need to enter the wireless line menu, find your net there. After clicking on the label, a new security code is prescribed. If the procedure has not worked, then debugging is carried out:

  • The old network is deleted using the “Forget” value;
  • It is searched again, then a new identifier must be installed in it;
  • It remains to click on the “Connect” key.

Internet setting on a router via the phone

The above adjustment of the router was carried out in standard mode when using a dynamic IP address. For debugging communication via the phone on the TP-Link adapter, the following step-by-step algorithm is used:

  • A web browser launches on the cellular.
  • The IP address of the adapter is prescribed: or
  • An authorization window will appear on the screen, in which the identification data is entered: admin.
  • At the first access, “fast settings” is used.
  • After clicking on “Next”, a window will appear on the display in which all points are registered or a mark is placed near the phrase “I have not found suitable information for adjustment”.
  • Following the connection option is selected. information about the static address must be obtained in advance from the service provider or read in the contract, the data is also submitted by hotline employees.
  • In the free graphs, information from the provider fits.
  • If there is no binding on the MAC address, then the subparagraph “no, I’m not connected to the main computer”.
  • You need to click on the “next” and in the “wireless mode” unit, set the name, select your region and set the recommended type. more often the mixed version 11 BGN is selected.
  • The page piercing down, in the “Protection” subsection, preference is given to WPA2-PSK.
  • The new line identifier is recorded.

After clicking on the “Next” unit, automatic reloading of the equipment begins and the Internet is opened to all devices located within a radius of 10 meters from the router.

How to change the Wi-Fi password

Another popular issue from beginners is how to change the Wi-Fi password on the TP-Link Archer C6 router without its complete reconfiguration?! This is a fairly simple operation. You need to open the section “Basic Settings” ⇒ “Wireless mode”:

On the right on the page “Setting up wireless mode” will be the “password” field for each of the wireless ranges supported by the device. 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. We change the one that is needed or both at once and click the “Save” button. After that, it will be necessary to forget this wireless network on each of the Wi-Fi devices and connect to it again.

Functions and opportunities

The Tether mobile software developed by TP-LINK is inherently an alternative to the Web-Inteacle, which allows you to control the router. Setting up and viewing all the main network parameters of the router is available here. Thanks to a simple and intuitively understandable intese, you can configure the “from scratch” router, or change the existing previously made installations of the device. Next, we consider the basic tools and functionality of this program.

Management of a wireless network

The application page of the application presents information about the wireless network, to which this device is connected and distributed.

By clicking on the name of the network, you can perform 4 standard operations:

  • Turn on/disable the wireless mode;
  • change the name of the network;
  • Turn on/disable the network protection using a password;
  • change the network security key.

Through the application you can also create a guest network. To create such a network, use the button on the main page of the program. A similar team is also present in the toolbar. From here you can turn on and disable the guest network that can work parallel to the main network.

Customer management

For many users of wireless devices, a rather urgent question is. who is connected to the router at the moment. In principle, getting a list of current users is quite simple. You just need to enter the panel of the administrator of the device and find the necessary information on the menu. However, the easiest way, of course, download the Tether Tp-Link application and view the information in it.

The procedure will be such. First we enter the application itself. Then, in the navigation panel at the bottom of the screen, select the item “Clients”. Here is a list of all devices that are currently connected to this router.

If necessary, you can click on the name of the device to get detailed information about its parameters. It is also possible to limit access to the network using click clicking. The list of devices that are blacklisted will be displayed here.

It is very convenient to use this function if the Wi-Fi network is not protected by the security key. This will limit foreign devices to the local network. This, in turn, will positively affect the speed of the Internet and the quality of the connection.

Panel “Tools”

Here is a set of tools for controlling the main parameters and auxiliary functions of the router. The Tether application allows you to configure the device through the phone, without using the standard administration panel on the computer.

It is worth noting that the functionality of the application is limited when comparing them with the functionality of the standard administrator panel on PC. However, you need to remember that the program was created for the simplest and comfortable control of the router and is not designed for advanced setting up the device.

Internet connection setup

Through the “Internet connection” tools, you can change the main network parameters of the device. This may be required if you changed the provider or you need to re.set the router after updating, return to factory parameters.

The main criterion is the type of connection. When choosing a “dynamic IP” option, all other fields are filled automatically. This type of connection is used by most service providers.

Parental control

A fairly useful function that allows you to limit access to certain network resources. If you specify any site in the list of exceptions, then opening it will not be possible. In addition, this function allows you to control the traffic consumed on selected devices.

First everyone needs to add the device itself to the list of controlled. Introduce the device for this, and other data in this case will not be required. A list of computers and smartphones that are already connected to the network will be offered.

After the device is added, you can set time intervals of visiting the Internet. Outside of these intervals, access to the Internet will be limited to.

In addition to indicating temporary intervals, parental control provides for the possibility of blocking various resources. It can be either a single site or a group of sites. It is enough to enter the URL, as a result of which the resource will be added to the white list. Thanks to this, the child from the device will be able to go only to selected sites, but access to other resources will be limited.

Network diagnostics

A useful tool with which you can check the condition of the current connection. The function will help if the Internet suddenly disappeared on the device connected to the router. Checking will determine the cause of the failure and restore access to the global network. To perform the check, just go to the corresponding menu item. In this section, click on the diagnosis.

Is it possible to install on PC

Most users of wireless devices often say this. “I set my router with PC, since it is inconvenient to do it from the smartphone”. Therefore, the question of whether there is a TP-Link Tether program for Windows is relevant for many owners of network equipment of this brand. It is worth saying right away that this is a mobile application. Therefore, download it to the computer officially cannot work. However, there are still alternative options that will come in handy for those who work with wireless devices with PC:

  • Loading from extraneous sources. Some developers adapt mobile applications for working on PC. Therefore, if you want to download the TP-Link Tether on Windows 10, you can look for an adapted version on the Internet. The only nuance is that the loading of utilities from unreliable sources is considered dangerous. Therefore, before loading and installing the program, you should weigh all the pros and cons, as well as evaluate a potential threat to your device.
  • Using the emulator. To run the Tether mobile application on the computer (or any other), you can use the program that emulates the Android operating system. Thus, you can use the utility to control the router on PC. Among the best emulators, it is worth highlighting LDPlayer, Bluestacks, Nox and Primeos.
  • Loading utility for a specific model. On the official website TP-LINK you can download additional materials for current models of network equipment. In addition to reference information and videos devoted to setting up and eliminating problems, it is also possible to download the utility for managing the device with PC. However, this software is not available for every model. But you can try to find the right device on the site and check the presence of a utility that will completely replace TP-Link Tether with PC.

Main screen

As a result of the entrance to the router settings, you fall on its main screen. On the main screen is the “control panel”, where you will see information about your Wi-Fi and in real time.

By pressing the router icon, you will see his name, model, firmware version and hardware version of iron.

Menu “Clients

In the “Clients” tab (or clicking on the number of customers on the main application screen), all devices connected to this network, type of connection and their IP address are indicated.

By clicking on one of the connected devices, you can also find out the mass-address, as well as block it.

This can be useful if someone outsiders connected to your network. Here you can change the name of the client and choose another badge to him.

Setting up some parameters

Using a smartphone, you can change the router configuration.

Internet connection

The parameters of connecting a router to the Internet, for example, TP-Link can be configured through the phone.

To configure the router through a smartphone, it follows:

  • In the control panel of the Wi-Fi router, you need to find the “WAN” settings section.
  • Here you need to specify the type of connection to the network. If your router has a dynamic IP, then additional settings will not be needed.

If the type of connection “PPPOE” or “PPTP”, then it will be necessary to enter the login and password from the network.

As mentioned earlier, these data are indicated in the contract that is concluded with the provider.

Wireless security setting

In order to change the accounting data for entering the router control panel, follow the instructions:

  • In the router integration, you need to find the “System Tools” section.
  • Next, you need to choose the column “Password”.
  • In the line of input of the new name and password, enter new data.
  • Confirm your actions by retaining changes.

It is best to duplicate new accounting data on a sheet of paper and remove them in a reliable place.

Setting Wi-Fi

After all the changes made earlier (change in accounting data), it will be necessary to change the Wi-Fi parameters. To do this, use the instructions:

TP-Link Router Bandwidth Control / Bandwidth Management Settings (Set Speed Limit)

  • In the router control panel, select “Wireless Networks”.
  • In the line named after Wi-Fi you need to enter a new name and save changes.
  • Next, you need to connect to Wi-Fi with a new name (leave the same password).
  • Now start the browser again and go to the router integral (write down in the address bar of Browser or If ASUS can try.
  • Here you need to select “Protection of the wireless regime”.
  • Now it is necessary to install new parameters:
  • In the safety type line, select “WPA2-PSK”
  • The encryption algorithm should be “AES”.
  • The “PSK” column must enter a new password from the Wi-Fi network (it will also be a safety key).
  • After the actions carried out, it is necessary to maintain new parameters.

Disabling from the network will occur. In order to re.connect, you need to go to the “Settings” of the smartphone. Further, in the “Wi-Fi” section in accessible networks, you need to find your network. Enter a new password. After that, a connection to Wi-Fi must occur.

Even with proper observance of all points of the instructions, with a new connection, an error may occur. Its solution can be found in the next section.

What errors can be made when connecting and setting up

May occur when connecting to the network, after setting up Wi-Fi. After introducing a new password, the smartphone may stop connecting to the network. Under its name will be written “Authentication Error” or “Saved”. To correct this situation, hold the name Wi-Fi network for several minutes. After that, the “Delete/Forget” command will appear, select the right.

Now you can the desired network in the list of available, and will connect again.

The error “Internet may not be available” / “There is no connection to the network”.

Users often face such a problem, there can be many reasons for its occurrence. To solve this problem on mobile devices, the following methods are suitable:
