make bsnl adsl router as abridge router , then connect tp link router from wan port with any one of lan port of adsl router , then configure tplink router connection depending how you get internet from your ISP
Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router. These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop. If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements. The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key. The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits. Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988. The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. Toconnect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure thewireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ieSSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops cancommunicate with your wireless router.
try power cycle by removing the power of the router for one minute then plug it again.
check the cable if all of it tightly connected to the specified port
if it is a modem router it should have a 3 cable connected to it
Phone line, Ethernet cable and the power adapter.
the Ethernet cable should be connect to the back of your tower( computer).
check you phone for a dial tone.
check the light in the router like dsl , ethernet ,internet and activity.
all of these must have a light.
If you cannot remember the username and password to get into the Dlink configuration, you will need to do a hard reset on the router. Look for the resessed button, that will be the reset button. Hold the reset button in for at least 10 seconds and this will reset the router. Then you can use the default username and password that was set up on the router when it came from the factory.
Then open your internet explorer browser and put http://192.168.0.1 in the address bar. chose Admin for the username and leave the password blank. This will get you into the router configuration.
I hope that this information will help you get into the configuration tool. Let me know if you need any further clarification on this issue.
