How do I login to the web management page of the EAP Series products (Standalone mode)?

EAP series products can either work under the control of the Omada Controller software or work independently as a standalone access point. This FAQ shows you how to log in to its web interface on a standalone EAP.

Notes:

1. Old version of your web browser may cause compatibility problem with the web interface of EAPs. Please make sure the web browser is up to date.

2. The web interface of a specific EAP is not available once this EAP is adopted by the EAP Controller. Please close the EAP Controller software if any on your computer before trying to log into the web management page.

Situation 1: There is a DHCP server (router) in the same network with EAP. Domain name login is recommended. This is suitable for all EAPs except EAP320 and EAP330.

Typical scenario:

 

Step1

Make sure the management host (PC) is set as obtain an IP address automatically.

Here are some instructions about how to configure TCP/IP properties on your computer.

Step2

Connect the EAP to the router via Ethernet cable and connect your wireless devices to the EAP by using the default SSID printed on the label of the EAP device. The default SSID of the EAP is: TP-Link_2.4GHz_XXXXXX or TP-Link_5GHz_XXXXXX.

Note: XXXXXX represents the last 6 characters of the EAP's MAC address. Password is not required.

Notes: Only when there is a DHCP server (router) in the same network with your EAP and the computer is connected to the EAP via wireless can you use the domain name http://tplinkeap.net to log into the web interface of the EAPs.

Situation 2: There is no DHCP server in your network but you want to login the management page of your EAP. IP address login is recommended. This is suitable for all EAP series models.

Typical scenario:

Step 1

Connect your computer to the EAP device with an Ethernet cable.

Step 2

Remember your computer’s current IP settings and manually assign a static IP address 192.168.0.100 for your computer.

For how to assign a static IP for your computer, please refer to this FAQ: How to configure TCP/IP Properties of my computer.

Step 3

Launch the web browser and enter the IP address 192.168.0.254. If you changed it before, you may need to do a hard reset on the EAP.
