Web-based interface, as well as opportunities and TP-Link TL-MR3420 also largely similar to other models of functional router TP-Link.
IP-address defaults to 192.168.1.1, and login and password for admin.
Left in the interface is the main menu displayed in the center of adjustable parameters,
and to the right shows a little help on him. Unfortunately,
the translation of web-based interface to Russian language in the TP-Link has not yet been attended to.
The default home page appears with basic information about the state of the router,
the status of current connections, the volume of data transferred and so on.
When you first log will automatically start Quick Setup Wizard that guides user through all the main stages of the router configuration.
Set up a connection to the client devices with the function QSS (aka WPS) is moved to a special section of the menu.
Given the existence of a single button on the kind of love to the QSS surprising.
However, the procedure for pairing devices to the router is really easy, that for inexperienced users is important.
Most probably, an important option – it is the preferred choice of the network.
You can allow access only through a wired WAN-connection or through a 3G-only network.
A more practical option – automatic path failover in the event of the fall of the ground.
Depending on the mode will not work some of the options to connect to the Internet, such as changing MTU.
Setting up 3G-modem is simplified. Enough to stick a modem in the USB-port,
wait until the router will recognize it (a minute or two) and then choose your country and operator name.
Here there is a small flaw. The list of items is Russia and Russian Federation.
In the first case, access the “Beeline”, and the second “Megaphone” and MTS.
All connection settings have been punched,
but you can check the box Set the Dial Number and APN manually and hand-drive options for the operator,
not on the list. All models of 3G-modems that are supported by the router are listed here .
In some cases, have an additional configuration file download from here .
Models list is constantly updated, and monitors the correctness of the manufacturer of modems
with the router in a variety of networks and operational updates for configurations that will eventually be included already in the main firmware.
True, it concerns mostly foreign operators. And in Russia do not really three mobile operator and a few more.
According to the company, and will support modems WiMax, but the corresponding firmware release date still unknown.
Other features fairly standard router.
In the network settings specify IP-address of the router and choose one of the most common subnet mask or manually specify their own. For WAN-connected,
you can use static or dynamic IP-address, as well as connection via PPTP, L2TP, PPPoE,
or “non-native” to Russia BigPond. The local network provider, as a rule,
will be available at no additional “shamanism” with routing.
You can set the MTU size and idle connections, specify your own DNS-server addresses,
change the name of the router, and whether the Internet connection (manually, on demand or always).
But it’s not available in all modes (see above).
Also have the option of cloning MAC-address from the PC to WAN-interface to meet the demands of a particularly fastidious providers.
TP-Link TL-MR3420 supports Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n.
Ability to work either in one of these standards, or in mixed mode: 802.11b/g or 802.11b/g/n. As usual,
it is proposed to select the country of use and leave the automatic settings.
You may want to manually select the channel to use and specify the width and maximum data transfer rate.
It is also easy to change the SSID of the access,
disable the SSID or announcement in general off the wireless module or put it to expand wireless coverage via WDS.
Encryption and authentication in a wireless network using algorithms 64/128-bit WEP, WPA/WPA2, WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK (TKIP / AES) or through Radius-server.
Available filtering white and black lists of MAC-addresses,
as well as the ability to view a list of connected clients with the number of packets sent and received.
For advanced users can fine-tune the parameters of the radio module.
