Milan have you got the user manual as it clearly explains how to set up the router and configure it manually !
Your modem device already on your network has to have an IP address of and according to the user manual the router detects the conflict in ip address and allocates its IP address as If you IP address is different say then you will have to plug just the router in to your Laptop and alter the i/IP address to and turn off the DHCP server if the modem or existing router has DHCP. You will need to alter any existing DHCP server to have the first 10 IP addresses skipped for available leases to the computers.

My first take would be to make sure that the firmware is up to date. Often enough connectivity issues can be resolved this way.
Take a look at TP's support page here:
150Mbps Wireless Router TL WR740N
(Make sure you find the correct version of your router. I am also assuming you did not install any other firmware)

If this does not work, I would turn off any wireless security off to see if the phones connect. They definitely should both be able to connect at the same time.

Last resort would be to reset the router to factory default (make sure to have username and password from your ISP in case you need it.)

Let me know if one of these tips helped.
PS: What type of phones are you using? Android or iPhone?

For what?

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.

Hey mate, did you mean that you want to access web management feature and change your Wi-fi password through iPad? If so you need to open the web management feature, go to Wireless > Wireless security and change your password there. Save and reboot, hope this helps
