Are you looking for a high-quality router with a long range? Well then, TP-Link routers are the best choice! Simply set up the router with an Internet Modem and get it all linked up to your TP-Link wireless connection. Setting up TP-Link routers is a simple task that you can do by yourself.
How Do I Set Up My TP-Link Router?
- Using an Ethernet cable connect the router with the modem in the WAN port. The WAN Port is the port colored in yellow.
- Either wirelessly or via a cable please connect your computer to the TP-Link router network.
- On your web browser type the IP address of the router. Or alternatively you can try using the link tplinkwifi.net.
- Now you will be directed to the router login page. If its your first time logging in to the router login page, then you will have to set up an administrator password.
- Pick the relevant time zone and go to the next option.
- Next you need to select the connection type. If you’re unsure about what the connection type for your TP-Link router is, then go for the auto detect option.
- Enter any other details requested.
- Now you have the option of cloning or not cloning the Mac address of your computer. If you do not understand the technicalities of this, it is always best to not clone the Mac address.
- Now you need to get started on the configuration part of your network. Set the SSID and password for your network.
- Double check through your network setting and if all is well, save the changes.
- If you have a TP-Link cloud account, you can set that up too and get going over your new internet connection.
Tips to Keep your Router Safe and Secure
- There are a variety of encryption controls such as WPA, WEP, WPA2 and so on and so forth. Using an encryption control will give greater protection. WPA3 offers the highest level of protection and is best suited for new routers.
- Set up a strong password that includes a combination of hard to guess upper case and lower-case letters, numbers and symbols.
- To add an additional layer of protection you can make use of the Mac address filtration feature to allow only specified devices from joining the network. This will prevent any unauthorized device from trying to enter the network.
