How to configure link aggregation on TP-Link Wi-Fi products?

Introduction: Some TP-Link Wi-Fi products have the Link Aggregation function which can aggregate two LAN ports together at most in order to get a higher LAN speed up to 2Gbps theoretically.

If you build a NAS server in your local network and require higher LAN speed than 1Gbps, the device environment could be set as below:

Note: Our products only support layer 2 LACP, don’t support layer 3 or layer 4 LACP.

Step 1:

Login the management page of the supported product, the default username and password are admin/admin.

If needed, you may refer to How to log into the web-based interface of the Wi-Fi router (new designed blue UI)? for more detailed information.

Step 2:

Click Advanced, Network and then LAN.

Step 3:

Enable the Link Aggregation function, select working mode and two LAN ports you want as aggregated ports. Then click Save.

Note: When work with Archer C5400 or Archer C3150, the Link Aggregation mode in NAS should be LACP too. Besides, Either NAS or router should be LACP active.

Step 4:

The settings on Archer C2300 are different. As the below images shown, we suggest to choose SRC MAC+DST MAC Hash Algorithm.

Note: When works with Archer C2300, the Link Aggregation mode in NAS shoule be Static mode.

Step 5:

Configure the Link Aggregation function on the NAS server.

Step 6:

Connect the NAS server to our product as we shown at first.

Step 7:

Make sure the NAS server has received an valid IP address from our product normally. You could check it in DHCP Client List.

You could now enjoy higher speed in your home sharing network.
