Have a computer connected to the router with an ethernet cable. Examples given are for a Linksys router. Refer to your router manual or the router mftr.'s website for default settings if you don't have a Linksys.
Most computers purchased within the last 4 years have wireless hardware that will support WPA2-Personal (also called WPA2-PSK). This is the encryption level you want. If your wireless hardware is older use WPA. Do not use WEP as that is easily cracked within minutes. So go ahead and set the Security Mode to WPA2-Personal. Do that and enter a passphrase. At this point your router is configured and if the computer you were using to configure the router is normally going to connect wirelessly disconnect the ethernet cable and the computer's wireless feature should see your new network.
TP-LINK router is to extend the wireless network range via a LAN cable. We don't need WAN port on the TP-LINK router in this network.
Step 1: Connect the main router to the LAN port on TP-Link router through Ethernet cable.
Step 2: Connect your computer to anther LAN port through Ethernet cable then login to TP-LINK web interface through the IP address
Step 3: Go to Network -> LAN on the left side menuchange the LAN IP address of TP-LINK router to the same LAN of the main router (For example if your main router gets the IP address of 192.168.2.1 192.168.2.X (1<X<254) is recommended for TP-LINK router). After that it would require a Reboot. Please click OK to reboot and then relogin to TP-LINK page with the new IP address
Step 4: Configure the wireless Go to Wireless -> Wireless Settings page configure the SSID (Network name) and Channel. (If it is a dual band device please don't forget to select the Band.) Click Save button. Go to Wireless -> Wireless Security page configure the wireless security. Here WPA-PSK/AES is recommended. PSK Password is the key of your wireless.
Step 5: Go to DHCP on the left side menu disable the DHCP Server and click Save button.
Step 6: Go to System Tools -> Reboot page click Reboot button to reboot the device.
After all of the tips above your computer would have internet through any LAN ports of TP-LINK by an Ethernet cable. At the same time your wireless client would have access to the TP-LINK wirelessly through the SSID and Password pointed to it.
