I am a complete hopeless case living in a techno world!! I'm trying to set up wireless on my laptop. My broadband provider is virgin. When I click network then add wireless device it says it cannot find any. I cannot even get as far as login to the router. Completely stuck. If you can help this thicko in any way I'd appreciate it.

Download firmware update in English from TP Link website and unzip.
Connect computer to router with Ethernet cable as per manual and in your web browser window enter http://tplinklogin.net then enter user name and password (admin,admin) to access the router Configuration Utility.
From the English manual note the location in the configuration utility menus of the firmware upgrade utility. I.E. Go "system tools" (last entry in menu) then "firmware upgrade" (3rd item down). I know it's written in Chinese but you can count right?
Select your unzipped file location in the window and press the button beneath.
Have you set the TP Link TL-WA901ND IP to have 192.168.1.1 as the default gateway ?
Also DHCP server is where ?
IN the TP LINK TL-WA901ND or in DLINK DIR 615
Only have one Router running DHCP and set the default gateway in the leases as 192.168.1.1.
What subnet mask are you using is it the same through out all devices ?
You will need at least two ethernet cables like the one that is currently connecting yur PC to your Comcast Modem. Use one cable to connect between your pc and any of the ports labled 1, 2, 3, or 4 on the router. Another ethernet cable should be connected between the modem and the port labeled WAN on the router. Then (if you havent already), turn off the power to all three, the modem, the router, and the pc. then, turn on the power to just the modem and wait until the lights on the front of it stablize (usually about 60 to 120 seconds). Then turn on the router and wait another 60 seconds. Finally, boot up the computer. You should be able to connect to the internet. the next step will be to set up the wireless part of the router.
You'll want to enable the VPN transparency. In the router's administrative web interface, click the Security Tab, then the VPN Passthrough sub-tab. Cisco VPN's usually use IPSEC, so enable the IPSEC Pass-through and click "Save Settings". If this doesn't work enable the PPTP Pass-through as well and give that a shot.
