Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router

Help please! TP-Link Wireless Router TL-WR641G stopped working

I have a TP-Link Wireless Router model number TL-WR641G set up connected to my DSL. It's the old router from my office and worked fine there. When I initially set it up last week, it was working fine. I went away for a few days and when I came back today and it won't connect to the internet anymore.

The internet is working fine if I disconnect the router and connect directly to DSL. When I use the router I have no trouble connecting to my wireless network, but something is keeping me from accessing the internet. Any help fixing this problem would be greatly appreciated!

It looks like all your devices by themselves are working fine.
Good start.
If you took the router out of your office I assume that the settings from the office and your home are different, which causes the setup not to work properly.

First of all you should find out which hardware version of the router you have and download the manual from here, so you have the information at hand when you're not online.

Then you want to rest the router to factory settings, so you start clean. In order to do so, use the Factory Default Reset button: First, turn off the router's power. Second, press and hold the default reset button then turn on the router's power, until the SYS LED lights up (about 3 seconds). Last, release the reset button and wait for the router to reboot.

Follow the instructions in the manual form page 8 on onwards with a special view on setting up PPPoE. Have your information form your DSL provider handy (Account name and password).
The default webpage for the router interface is http://192.168.1.1
Username and password are both "admin".

Do not enable any wireless security until everything is working fine.

Make sure later to change the password to something else, so no one can "take over" your router.

If this solution did not help, please don't rate it as "Thanks for trying" or so, but leave a comment instead and I will check back and we can work form there.

Good luck!

Why does my TL-MR3020 Portable Wireless N Router Keeping dropping out a few moments after appearing to be connected to the internet


Why have you two routers connected to the same network?
1. TL-MR3020 Portable Wireless N Router
2. Three ZTE MF730M dongle (router).
The problem is the router does not know which route to choose, so remove one of them and it should stop dropping out.

Network cable unplugged


Make sure that the cable is not plugged into the uplink on the router. That it is plugged in to a numbered port.

TL-WR641G/TL-WR642G parental lock


This router doesn't support parental controls, however it does have domain filtering which lets you block specific domains. To log into your router.
  • Open a command prompt.
  • Start, type CMD and press enter
  • Type ipconfig
  • Note the "Default Gateway", this is your routers address.
  • Type this address into a web browser address bar. (Ex: 192.168.0.1)
  • Log into your router, enter any username and/or password.
  • If you never configured one and it asks its probably one of the following. (admin/admin, admin/password) You can also google your model + default login and you should find it's default)
  • Once logged in go to the security > domain filter


Here is the routers user guide if you need more info. Feel free to comment back if you need further help.
