    I have had a TP-Link TD-WD8901G router for a couple of years and have used it as an alternative router to get into the Orange Broadband system. I have thick walls in my home and the supplied Orange router did not give a WIFI signal across the whole house, I placed the TP LINK router in my roof space (my home is a bungalow) and when I wanted to use WIFI I physically swapped the telephone connection from the Orange router to the TP Link one, it worked OK I have now changed my ISP to BT (who provide a HUB router), but WIFI is still poor in sections of the house. I have tried configuring the TP Link router (after re-setting) using the disc provided and also by manual set up, neither work. Can you provide a solution or is it simply that the TP Link router cannot get into the BT system?

Sounds like you need to change the TP link router for a wireless Access Point or a range extender.
Who knows what goofing around BT does with their equipment.

SOURCE: disable Nat TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND

yeap it should be the firewall, here is the manual http://www.tp-link.com/resources/software/201161017075118.pdf
think this should help you.
But if you want my expertise, make the tp-link as a router and vdsl just the internet line. connect it to router wan and buy a switch for all your devices.That should be the safest and smartest way.

SOURCE: TP-Link TL-WR642G recovery after failure upgrade to latest firmware

may find this page helpful. http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php...om_a_Bad_Fl ash Its not for the TP-Link router but the same principle could be applied to you with the correct firmware. Its worked for me on more than a few occasions. Providing you can ping the router via a lan cable then the chances of recovering it are very high.

SOURCE: I just brought a Tp-link TD-w896ON but the internet speed 1.67 mbps ??

The line speed is controlled by your internet service provider, not by your router. If you have something like AT&T as your internet service provider, then they sell 3 or 4 different line speeds or packages. The cheapest will get you the slowest line speed. So if you have a 300mbps router but you purchased AT&T's cheapest line speed it will never allow you to do downloads, uploads or streams at 300mbps. You gotta Pay to Play. :)

Change password non computer


If you reset the router, you return to the default setting. Then you have to create a new password. All of the settings you had before will be lost, including the MAC address, and security settings.

How to convert a tata photon in to a wifi connection


First, you need an internet gateway. Do you have already some kind of internet connection through DSL, CABLE Modem, etc? The TP wifi will first have to be connected to your network (wired LAN). Then, once that is done, you need a computer with web browser to access and configure the setting in the TP. There is a CD that comes with the TP. It contains "Easy Setup Assistant" program to configure your TP wifi.

How to configure my tcp/ip TP-link access point


The router has both a "WAN" (Wide Area Network) side
and a "LAN" (Local Area Network) side.

On the WAN side, most ISPs (Internet Service Providers) will provide the values for IP-address, subnet-mask, and gateway.

On the LAN side, you should just use the "default" values.

Connect your computer via an Ethernet-cable to the router,
and the router will supply values to your computer,
so that your computer can communicate with the router.

Have bought Belkin 802-11g router for our laptop. Computer uses MS vista. Disc that came with router is not compatible with vista. Am not technical with computers at the best of times. So... how the hell...


any router or disc should be compatible with any version of windows, if you mean the wireless reciever/dongle, the go here for drivers

http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatSectionView.process?Section_Id=204037

If you do mean the router, then connect to your laptop using a lan cable supplied with the router, then you can get into the router by opening internet explorer, the type in the web address, either 192.168.2.1, or 192.168.0.1, i forget which it is.

This will bring up the password and user name, which is in the manual and then enter your isp's dial up details
