    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. :)

You need to read the manual here.

It needs power and the router plugging into the line via the line socket.

A Ethernet cable needs to plugged into one of the WAN ports to configure the router, the other end needed to be plugged into a pc.

How to configure TP-link TL-wr340g on tata broadband


Hello,

If you don't have any internet access, you can reset the router by unplugging it from power and then plug it back in. Do the same for your ADSL or cable ISP modem which you have connected on your TP-Link router.
RESET FIRST YOUR ADSL MODEM and then your router.

Other solution might be to do ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew on your command line window from your computer.

You can find your wifi router's user manual (PDF) on this link:

Please mark as solution if this helped you at all.

Thanks.

TP-LINK TD-W8920G (A) ver 2.2 UK new firmware > build 080227n ?


My solution:

Go to the "Security" option and click to "Incoming" rules. By default, all WAN traffic blocked, but you can create "ALL" rules, just left the source and destination ip address and port blank. This means ALL ports and ip like the firewall off.
