TP-Link routers feature a built-in web-based management utility. This internal web server does not require the router to have internet access. It does however require your device to be connected to the TP-Link router’s network. This connection can either be wired or wireless and can be accessed via any device with a web browser like a desktop computer, a phone, tablet, iPad, etc.

Note: Older web browsers may have compatibility concerns with this web-based utility. It is recommended to use or install the latest version of a browser before continuing.

Step 1

Connect to your router via Wired or Wireless.

If Wireless: Make sure your client device is connected to your router’s wireless SSID. If using the Defaults, the SSID and Password are printed on your router label.

If Wired: Connect your client to your router via Ethernet cable to one of the LAN ports (Yellow) on the back of your TP-Link router.

Step 2

Launch/open a web browser and enter or in the address bar.
