First you’ll need to connect to your TP-Link network. You can connect using Wifi or an Ethernet cable. It’s okay if you don’t have internet access.

To access the router login screen, open a browser and connect using one of these three URLs. Try each of them to see which one brings up the login screen for you.

Enter your username and password on the login screen. If this is your first time, you will need to use the default credentials:

username: admin
password: admin

Once you’re logged into the router, you can change the admin password under Management > Access Control > Password.

Congratulations! You're logged in and ready to go.
