- Increasing Speed Of TP-Link Router
Increase The Speed Of Your TP-Link Router
You can either purchase a Wi-Fi extender that of D-Link, Netgear, Linksys, TP-Link, or convert a secondary router and turn it into a repeater position the router in a much better place so you will have some improved signals. To increase speed of TP-Link router, carry out the methods below.
METHOD 1 - INTERFERENCE
Interference with other wireless devices can cause a massive conflict.
The devices that are using the same frequency can come in interference with the Linksys router signals.
Make sure to keep devices such as baby monitor, radio, microwaves away from your router to achieve a proper signal status on your wireless device.
You can either relocate your router or change the wireless channel on the router settings page.
To make changes to the wireless channel in the router, follow the steps given below.
On the computer connected to the router, enter the TP-Link router IP address in the address bar and press the enter button.
Enter the default login credentials to open the router’s web setup page. Now, click Wireless and select Channel and SSID.
From the wireless channel drop-down list, select the channel 1-13 and click the Apply Changes button. It will increase speed of TP-Link router.
METHOD 2: USING AN WIFI EXTENDER
If the network signal is weak at certain locations, you can use Wi-Fi extenders for increasing the range of the router. Follow through the directions to set TP-Link extender.
Please take out the secondary router and connect it to the primary router using an Ethernet cable.
Open the default browser.
Log in to the router configuration page by entering the router IP address in the browser's address bar.
Now, you will see the page open with the router login credentials. Use the default login credentials as follows:
Once you log in to the router settings page, click the Wireless tab on the top of the page.
The Wireless tab will open four sub-tabs on the left side of the screen. Click on the Wi-Fi repeater option.
The Wireless repeater setup will be shown to you on the screen. Click the Checkbox Repeater Enabled.
You may now enter the SSID name of your own in the given field.
Enter the Pre-shared key in the field as shown and click Next.
The next step is important, and it is where you have to enter the desired IP address that is of the same range as the primary router.
Enter the subnet mask value and click the Finish button.
Now, the configuration is finished, you can unplug the secondary router from the computer and the primary router.
Place the secondary router in a place you have a scarce network signal. This will helps to increase speed of TP-Link router.
METHOD 3: ACCESS POINTS
Access Point acts as a port to get connected to the devices that are outside the wireless coverage and to connect to a more number of users to a local area network.You might think that routers are considered optimum for home and office use, but when you are in an office environment where work revolves around the internet, access points can be put to good use.
So, now that you will have two routers- one being the primary main router (your Tp-Link router) and the other router (a Tp-Link router), you will be turning it into an access point. (For example, I am using a Tp-Link router to convert to an access point)
Connect the computer to the secondary router, take out an Ethernet cable and connect one end of the cable between the router’s LAN port and the computer.
Once the connection is secure, you will now have to log in to the TP-Link router interface.
Open the default browser on your computer, enter the following URL https://tplinkwifi.net, and press the Enter button.
Once the login page opens, enter your username and password. Below are the credentials to increase speed of TP-Link router.
The Default Credentials Are
Once done, you will now be open to the TP-Link router interface.
On the left side of the router interface, click the Network tab.
Click LAN, and change the LAN IP address for the TP-link router.
Once you change the LAN IP address, you will have to reboot and again log in to the TP-Link interface using the new login credentials.
Click the Wireless tab and select Wireless settings and change the SSID name, click SAVE. (Optional)
Click the Wireless Settings, select the radio button WPA/WPA2- Personal (Recommended), and click SAVE.
Select DHCP > DHCP settings, click the Disable radio button, and click Save.
Select the System Tools tab and click Reboot.
Using an Ethernet cable, connect the main router to the configured TP-Link router. Now you successfully increase speed of TP-Link router.
