Tp Link Not Connecting To Internet

If you have internet connectivity problems at home or there are dead zones in your house where the signal does not reach, then it is recommended to use a wireless extender. These devices extend the wireless network so it can reach those areas of your home where there is no coverage.

You can connect your extender to the router using the bridge mode or a wired hardware connection. However, sometimes even after connecting your extender to the router, the internet does not work. Here in this article, we are going to address this problem. Read this article till the end to find out what you can do when your TP-Link extender is connected but there is no internet

How to Fix Tp Link Not Connecting To Internet Problem?

Solution 1: Check the Physical Connection Between the Modem and the Router.

If you see a red message "WAN Port is unplugged" on the status page of the router that means the modem is NOT plugged into the WAN Port of the router properly. Please plug it in and make sure the red message will be gone.

Solution 2: Clone the MAC Address of Your PC.

Some ISP will register the MAC address of your computer when you access the Internet for the first time through theirCable modem if you add a router into your network to share your Internet connection the ISP will not accept it as the MAC address is changed so we need to clone your computer's MAC address to the router.

  1. Make sure that you are connected to the TP-LINK Router with the computer that was originally connected to your Cable modem then log on to the management click Network->MAC Clone on the left side.
  2. Click Clone MAN Address this function will clone your PC's MAC address to WAN MAC Address of the router.

Solution 3: Change the LAN IP Address of the Router.

Most TP-LINK routers use 192.168.1.1/192.168.0.1 as their default LAN IP address it may be conflicting with the IP range of your existent ADSL modem/router. If so the router is not able to communicate with your modem and cause you can't access the Internet.

To resolve the problem we need to change the LAN IP address of the router to aviod such conflict for example 192.168.2.1.

Click Network-> LAN in the left side menu then change the IP Address to another one (for example 192.168.2.1) then click "Save".

Note: after you changed the LAN IP address next time you need to use the new IP address to access the router's management page and renew a IP address for your computer.

Solution 4: Power Cycle Modem and Router.

TP-LINK routers can Plug&Play with most modems but sometimes we need to do a "Power Cycle" to re-establish the connection:

  1. Power off your modem and TP-LINK router leave them off for 1 minute;
  2. Power on your modem first wait about 2 minutes until it get a solid cable or Internet light;
  3. Power back TP-LINK router;
  4. Wait another 1 or 2 minutes and check the Internet access.

Solution 5: Double Check the WAN Connection Type.

  1. Refer to this link for guidance of choosing correct WAN Connection Type of the router.Contact your ISP for suggestion if necessary.
  2. Click Network->WAN in the left menu to configure the correct WAN Connection Type->Save.
  3. Power cycle the modem and the router again.
