You should be able to reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button (located in the back) down for 15 seconds with power on.

Reset the router completely (usually a small button on the back or bottom of the router). Then try reconnecting everything once again and recreating your network with SSID name and everything.

Sounds like you need to change the TP link router for a wireless Access Point or a range extender.

Blocking domains on TP-LINK routers is fairly easy to do. Log onto the admin panel on or (default login name and password are both "admin"). Once you're in, look for an option under firewall settings. You should also be able to set the hours when the block is in effect.

If after Reset that problem still remains, as a browser use Opera !!!

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:
  • 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.
