This article is explicitly for range extenders that don’t have a DHCP server. To figure out how to set up models TL-WA750RE and up, click here.
Prior to setup, ensure you have the fundamental root switch data:
Data of Root Router:
● LAN IP: 192.168.1.254
● SSID: 2WIRE_TEST
● Encryption Type: WPA2-PSK with AES
● Passphrase: testtplink
●Since the DHCP work on the Range Extender is incapacitated of course, you’ll have to physically allot an IP address as 192.168.1.x to the PC to coordinate the default IP address of the range extender. Snap here for point by point guidance. For TL-WA830RE, the LAN IP is 192.168.0.254, expecting you to dole out 192.168.0.x to your PC.
●Connect the PC to the Range Extender with an Ethernet link. What’s more, disengage the remote from the root switch.
Range Extender Configuration
Sign into the range extender’s administration page. Snap here for point by point guidelines on the best way to do as such.
Snap Network. Ensure the range extender’s IP address is in a similar IP fragment with the root switch. In this occasion, we can change the IP to “192.168.1.250”. At that point snap Save.
Notice: If the root switch isn’t in the IP portion 192.168.1.X, (for example,192.168.0.254) you’ll have to change the IP of the range extender to 192.168.0.250. what’s more, click Save. At that point, change the IP of your PC to 192.168.0.100. A short time later, sign into the range extender’s administration page by utilizing the new IP 192.168.0.250.
Snap Quick Setup. At that point, click Next > Wireless. Select Range Extender as the Operation Mode. At that point snap Search.
Discover the root switch’s SSID on the rundown, at that point snap Connect.
Snap Wireless > Wireless Security. Select WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK, and Encryption AES. Information the secret word testtplink in the PSK Password field. At that point snap Save. The security settings on the range extender must be equivalent to the root switch.
In case you’re uncertain of the right security data, contact your switch’s specialized help.
The range extender should now work appropriately with the root switch.
Instructions to Confirm:
Snap System Tools > Diagnostic. At that point, type in the root switch’s IP 192.168.1.254 in the IP address (or IP address/Domain Name) bar. At that point, click Start.
Set the PC to acquire the IP address naturally.
In the event that the Ping isn’t effective, check every above setting cautiously, or contact TP-Link support for assistance.
