How to register a TP-Link cloud account for my TP-Link wireless router to manage it remotely? (New Logo)
1. This FAQ is suitable for TP-Link wireless router with cloud functions, such as Archer C8 V3, Archer C9 V3/V4 and so on. If your TP-Link router doesn’t support cloud functions, you can neither bind a TP-Link cloud account to it nor manage it remotely although you have signed up.
2. Currently most of the applicable models only support the online upgrade feature, and other cloud functions will be added in the future firmware.
3. As for Archer C5400 V1, only the EU version supports the online upgrade feature. Please check the hardware version on the label at the back of the router.
A TP-Link cloud account, which is also called a TP-Link ID, is used to bind and remotely manage TP-Link routers, cloud cameras, smart plugs and so on.
If you have already registered your email as a TP-Link ID via the kasa APP, the tpCamera APP or https://www.tplinkcloud.com , just use your TP-Link ID to manage your TP-Link router.
There are two ways to register a TP-Link cloud account: on the web management page or on the Tether APP.
Here we take Archer C8 V3 as an example.
Method 1: register on the web management page
- Connect your device to Archer C8 wired or wirelessly and make sure your device can get internet. Then open a web browser, type http://tplinkwifi.net in the address bar and login the management page of the router. The password is ‘admin’ by default.
- Go to Basic, choose TP-LINK Cloud, and click Register Now.
- Check your mailbox and open the activation mail, then tap Click to Finish Registration.
- Now your cloud account has been successfully registered. Just go back to the management page of the router and login with your TP-Link ID and password to enjoy the cloud services.
Note: The TP-Link ID will be automatically bound to your router after you login.
Method 2: register on the Tether APP
- Download and install the Tether APP on your smartphone from APP Store or Google Play.
- Connect your smartphone to the WiFi network of your TP-Link router, then run the Tether APP (make sure your smartphone can get internet). Tap the Hamburger icon in the upper left corner and click Login.
- Click New User, type in an email and create your own password.
- Tap Sign Up and you will receive an email for activation. After activated, please tap Login to login with your registered TP-Link ID and password.
- Click the back icon, select Archer C8 to manage it. Then a tip will pop up and remind to bind your device to a TP-Link cloud account, just click Bind Now.
- Tap Bind to combine your TP-Link router and TP-Link cloud account together. After that, you will find your TP-Link router showed as a cloud device on the Device page, which means that you can enjoy the cloud functions of your TP-Link router on the Tether APP.
