Application Scenario

TP-Link Routers that support the IoT Network feature can create a dedicated wireless network for you to manage your IoT devices together, such as smart lights and cameras, enhancing their connection stability.


1. Visit and log in with your TP-Link ID or the password you set for the router.

2. Navigate to Advanced → Wireless → IoT Network.

3. Tick the Enable checkbox for the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz wireless network. For the 5 GHz network, make sure your IoT devices can connect to a 5 GHz network.

4. Customize the SSID. Do not select Hide SSID unless you want your IoT devices to manually input the SSID for network access.

5. Select the Security type and customize your own password. If No security is selected, no password is needed to access the IoT network.

6. Click SAVE.

Now you can connect your IoT devices to the dedicated IoT network. You can also click Share Network to share the SSID and password with others.
