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.
There is a reset button located on the back of the router. You may need a paperclip unfolded or a pen to push the button in. With the power on push the button in for a few seconds, the lights on the front if the router should reset. This will put the router back to the factory out of box defaults.
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.
