TP-Link Router Setup

This is the basic setup and configuration for most of the TP-Link Routers. Although for some models it may vary, about 90% of TP-Link Routers have the same configuration.

Make sure that you follow every step carefully. Let’s get started!

For Cable/Fiber Modem:

  1. Connect your PC to the TP-Link Router using a LAN/Ethernet cable.
  2. Open your Web Browser.
  3. Type in the Default Gateway Address. The default gateway address varies for each router model, so, you can find it on the label below it or head to http://tplinkwifi.net.
  4. The default username and password is “admin”.
  5. If your connection is Dynamic IP (Cable/Fiber), go to Network > WAN > Dynamic IP.
  6. After a few minutes, check the status page. If it shows IP addresses as shown then the setup is complete. If not, proceed to next step.
  7. Go to Network > MAC Clone > Clone MAC Address.
  8. Check the status page, if it still doesn’t show IP addresses, try rebooting your router. It will fix the issue.

For DSL Modem (PPPoE):
