How To Setup TP Link Router For Wireless?

I have a TP-link router which I got it from my friend, he asked me to reboot it and then set it up to my home network. The problem is I do not know how to do it? My technical knowledge is quite limited so, if anyone can tell me how to do it in an easy way will be quite helpful.

I recently bought an AC 1350 router for my home network and I will tell you what I did to configure it on my own. Setting up your TP-link router wireless is same for almost all models, so you can follow my method to set it up.

1. First, connect your router to a power source and then to your laptop or computer. You need an ethernet cable generally yellow or blue in color.

2. Connect one end of the cable into one of the LAN ports (your router has 3-6 LAN ports depending on the model number) while the other end goes inside the Ethernet port at the back of your computer. The ADSL cable coming out of your wall outlet will go inside the WAN port of your router.

3. Now open your web browser and type in your local IP address into the URL address bar at the top. Local IP is different from the global one, so googling 'my IP address' won't help.

Note: If you do not know how to find your local IP address, click here.

4. Once you enter the IP address, you will be redirected to the login page of your router. Enter the username and password as provided by your ISP. In case they did not give you one, chances are default credentials will work. If you do not know the default one, try these

Username:
admin
Password: password/ leave it blank

5. Once on the main settings page, click on LAN/Internet settings, a new window will open up. On that page, enable DHCP, then select the bandwidth channel from the list. Save the settings.

6. Now from the main page, click on Security settings again you will be redirected to a separate Window. First, change the Encryption type to WPA2 and just below you will see a box for Pass-Key, this is your wifi password, create a strong password you can remember and note it down, as this will be required to connect to your router wirelessly.

7. Install all the necessary drivers from the CD you got along with the router, if you do not have one, go to the official website and download it from there as it is free of cost. After installation of drivers, reboot your router and you have successfully setup your TP-Link router.
