How to set up a wireless router in 3 steps?
Wireless routers are becoming increasingly popular, most people who use laptops or mobile phones prefer to connect to the Internet directly via WIFI since it’s more convenient and reduces mobile network traffic. However, many people who are unfamiliar with wireless routers do not know how to use a wireless router. Although there are manual books, the instructions are too brief and it takes some time to understand how to use a wireless router.
We’ve included extensive instructions for configuring a TP-Link wireless router below.
Step 1: Wireless Router Configuration
- Connect your computer to the wireless router using a network cable. Of course, it can also be connected directly with WiFi, but for a beginner, I recommend connecting to it directly with your network cable.
- Once connected, open a browser and type 192.168.0.1 into the address bar to access the wireless router’s setup page. The default login username and password are usually ‘admin‘, you can refer to the instructions in the manual (the simplest way is to take a look at the back of your router, there’s always an instruction). You can also take a look at Default Router Username and Password List.
- After successfully logging into the interface, the Router Setup Page will automatically pop up by default. Select Setup Wizard, then a window of instructions will appear, you can set the basic parameters of the router through the wizard, or you can simply click ‘Next’. Then, you can set up your router step by step using the Setup Wizard.
- Choose an internet access method, usually ‘PPPoE’ for ADSL users. If your ISP assigns you a static or dynamic IP address, you must select the appropriate one.
- If you don’t know how to choose, select the automatic option to make it easier for your router network.
- After you’ve finished your selection, click ‘Next’. Enter the account and password you received from your network service provider, then click ‘Next’.
Step 2: Restart the wireless router once the setup is complete. Then we get to wireless network settings.
- Set WiFi network name (also named WiFi SSID), which is by default your router model name, this is the device name that appears when you are searching the network. You can change it to something more memorable to you.
- WiFi password setting. An appropriate selection can improve the security of both your router and your wireless network. Choose WPA2 or WPA3 in the WiFi security protocol field instead of WPA, as the first two options will make your WiFi password more safe. Then, in the WiFi password field, type your selected password. After that, click Save to apply the changes. At this point, you have now completed the WiFi network configuration.
- After restarting the router, you should be able to connect to the Internet via wireless access.
- If you are familiar with the processes listed above, you have learned how to use a wireless router in general. The wireless router setup is now complete.
- The next step is to turn on your wireless device, search for a WIFI signal, and your computer will be directly linked to the Internet, as detailed below.
Step 3: Search for wireless signals to connect to the Internet
- Enable your local wireless network on your PC, search for WIFI signal, find your wireless router’s SSID (WiFi name), and double-click to connect.
- It will display ‘Getting WiFi signals to connect to a wireless router’, then enter the WiFi password you previously set.
- It then displays ‘Connecting to wireless network’. If the WiFi password is correct, you will be connected to the Internet.
Forgot 192.168.0.1 login password?
If you are unable log into a router through 192.168.0.1 because you have forgotten the router’s login password, the solution is very simple: reset the router and recover factory settings.
Router factory reset
If you don’t remember your router’s login password and there is no other way to find it back, the only option is to factory reset your router to restore default settings. To do so, follow the steps below:
- Power on your router.
- Hold a toothpick or a needle and push it against the reset button (it’s on the back of the router) for 10 seconds.
- Watch the router’s lights flash and wait for it to restart on its own.
- Check if the network cable on the router is plugged in correctly. ISP network cables must be plugged into the WLAN port, the LAN cable must be plugged into a LAN port.
After factory reset
- After you’ve factory reset your router, open your computer’s browser and type in ‘http://192.168.0.1’ (each router has its own default IP address, which is not the same as described above) and press ‘Enter’.
- Enter your login username and password, try the word ‘admin‘, which is always used as the default username and password.
- Click ‘Login’, then follow the steps above in the ‘How to set up a wireless router’ section to configure your router’s network.
- After that, restart your router to apply the changes.
