Configure Tplink router with TPlinkwifi.net
TP-Link provides networking hardware to the users globally. They provide reliable networking hardware and accessories such as routers, extenders, modems, switches and more. They provide a very reliable user experience with a smooth interface. Their routers need to be logged in before the user can access the advanced features of the router.
The users had trouble logging in to the routers with the default IP addresses specific to their routers. Many users didn’t know where to look for or how to find the default IP addresses (192.168.0.1) of their routers. TP-Link provided a solution to this problem. They now ship their routers preconfigured to use www.tplinkwifi.net as the default login address for most of the routers.
- Connect the desktop computer or a laptop to any of the LAN ports of the router using an Ethernet cable. Make sure that the connections are made properly on both ends.
- Now, connect the modem to the WLAN port of the router using another Ethernet cable. Make sure the connections are made properly.
- Turn off the computer, the modem and the router and turn them back on. Wait for the devices to finish booting up.
- Open any internet browser on the same device that is connected to the router. Type tplinkwifi.net in the address bar. Press Enter.
- You will see a pop-up window asking you for the default information of the router. The default username and password is “admin” for both cases for most of the TP Link routers. The username and password are case sensitive.
- After logging in, the Quick Setup will appear. Click Next to get started.
- Your router will have been setup and logged in.
From here, the user can follow the on-screen instructions to configure TPLinkwifi setup for suitable to their needs.
How TPLinkWiFi Setup Works
The domain name www.tplinkwifi.net when typed in an internet browser on the device connected to the router is recognized by the router and translated to the default IP address automatically and the user is then rerouted to the login page of the TP-Link router.
Only after logging in to the router can the user get access to the advanced features of the router such as the Parental Controls, the Guest Network, to change the username and password for the router, to update the firmware of the router and a lot more.
The user can simply go to the www.tplinkwifi.net web domain and log in using the default information of the router. The default username and password is “admin” for both cases. Once the user has logged in to the router, it is advised that they change the default username and password for the router to secure their network.
With the help of the advanced yet User-Friendly Quick Setup page, the user can now manage, control, monitor and even repair their network themselves.
- Locate the Reset button at the back of the router.
- Using a paper clip or something similar, press and hold the reset button for about ten seconds.
- After holding the reset button for ten seconds, release the button.
You will notice that the LED lights on the router have started blinking. Once the power light becomes stable and turns solid green or white for the newer models, your router will have been reset. It is advised that the reset process isn’t interrupted as it might leave the router corrupted or even useless.
Once the user has logged in to the router, it is advised that they update the firmware if there is any. The firmware update is a very important part of the router as it makes sure that the security on the router is kept up to date along with the latest features and general bug fixes.
From here on, the user can configure or change the settings on TPLink wifi setup to their network to make sure that their network is secure and so that they can get the most out of their routers.
