How do I connect my TP-Link Router to another wifi wireless router?
As we all are having more than 5 to 10 devices in each of our houses. Earlier there were very few devices in a house to connect with the WIFI routers and thus one router in a house was sufficient for us. But now we have computers, hand to hand mobile phone, laptops, games and so many wireless devices that needs to get hooked to the WIFI network and thus each of our devices consumes so much data, making the internet speed slow and creates dead zone issues as well. Instead of facing so many annoying issues, it is better to add another router to your tplinkwifi.net router that is already available in your house.
Requirements to add another router with the existing tplinkwifi.net router
Bring the latest and trending router from the market to connect with your existing router that already has an internet connection.
A computer system that you will be required to configure your routers. Along with the computer you also need two Ethernet cable to connect your router and the operating system.
Then, you are going to have the password and the user name for each one of the routers (The existing one and the latest one that you have just bought). This information will be required at the time of configuration and association of both the routers with the network.
If you want to add more devices with your WIFI network, then you should have a separate Ethernet cable for connecting each one of the devices. As the initial step, you required to connect both the routers with one another, using an ethernet cable.
Then connect the computers, laptops, smartphones, one by one using the ethernet cable. After configuration you can remove the wires and can enjoy the WIFI network seamlessly.
There must be enough power outlets to connect your routers and other smart devices. To connect both the routers first, you have to disconnect your previous routers also.
Moving towards the setup process of both the TP-Link routers…
- Connect your modem via internet port to the router’s WAN port of TP-Link, with the Ethernet cable. Next is to connect both the router with each other, similarly using the Ethernet cable.
- Next you need to connect your computer via putting in the Ethernet cable from your router to its LAN port. Perform all the instructions, given by the router to make this setup completed.
- Turn on the router along with the modem, and wait till you get the LEDs to blink solid.
- After that through your connected computer, you have to launch a web-browser and type the default gateway to the web interface of both the router’s that is www.tplinkwifi.net
- You can also use the IP address of both the routers’ as the web URL to get the login page of both the routers’ in the web-browser.
- Now stuff your router’s default credentials as the login credential to reach on to the interface of the router.
- The DHCP must be enabled in your TP-Link routers. To find these settings, you just need to visit the LAN settings/Network settings of your router.
- Turn on the second router and then open the web browser to enter the IP address of the secondary router, also enter the username and the password of this secondary router.
- Disable the DHCP now, from the secondary router, because your first router is already having this DHCP enabled that you can use.
- If both the routers have the same Ip address, then change the IP address of the second router why visiting the settings column.
- Now to connect both the routers, they must have operating via the same subnet.
- Turn off the first router and disconnect it, then again connect both the routers with Ethernet wire, and it should not be connected to the WAN port now.
- Now, switch on the secondary router, and thus your router will go online if you have access to the internet. At last reboot, the computer and then connect the devices you want to have on your www.tplinkwifi.net network.
