You can set up WPA2 -PSK wireless security mode on your wireless modem router by following these steps:

Step 1: Log in to your DSL router.

  • Open your web browser and type the LAN IP address of the router in the address bar (the default IP address of TP-Link routers is 192.168.1.1), then press Enter.

  • When you are prompted, enter the router´s username and password (the default username and password are both admin)

Step 2:

  • Once you are logged in to your wireless modem router , click the Interface Setup menu option.

Step 3:

  • Select "AES" as the Encryption Type

  • Enter a pre-shared key (wireless password) of your choice in the Pre-Shared Key field. Here we have used " tplinktest" , but you can use any pre-shared key you would like to configure.

* The pre-shared key can be made up of letters (upper- and lowercase), numbers and some symbols (i.e. underscores (_), hyphens (-), etc).

Step 4:

Click the Save button at the bottom of the page. The settings will then be saved, and WPA2-PSK wireless security will be enabled on your router.
