How to check the hardware and firmware version of the TP-Link devices except for the kasa&Tapo Devices

Note:  For the hardware version, please refer to How to find the hardware version on a TP-Link device?

Log in to the web page

Step 1

Turn over the device, you can see a label at the back of the devices of TP-Link, and note down the LAN IP address, Username and Password. Here we take TD-W8961ND as example, the LAN IP is 192.168.1.1.

Step 2

Connect your computer or phone to your TP-Link device. Open your web browser and enter the LAN IP address in the address bar, then press "Enter".  We could use IE, Firefox, chrome and safari and so on. Here we take IE as example.

Step 3

Enter the username and password of your device. The default Username and Password are both admin.

 

Step 4

Usually, on the web-based Utility (Management Page), you can find the firmware information. The build number indicates the released date, the first two or four digits representing the year, next two month and next two day. For example, 120315 means it’s released on March 15, 2012; and 20140924 represents September 24, 2014.

Please choose the category of your device in the table below.
