Category : TL-WR1043ND

This chapter will show you how to configure the basic functions of your TL-WR1043ND Wireless N Gigabit Router using Quick Setup Wizard within minutes.

TCP/IP Configuration

The default domain name of the Tp-Link TL-WR1043ND Wireless N Gigabit Router is http://tplinklogin.net,

the default IP address is 192.168.1.1, and the default Subnet Mask is 255.255.255.0.

These values can be changed as you desire. In this guide, we all use the default values for description.

Connect the local PC to the LAN ports of the Router, and then you can configure the IP address for your PC by following the steps below:

1) Set up the TCP/IP Protocol in “Obtain an IP address automatically” mode on your PC.
If you need instructions as to how to do this, please refer to “Configuring the PC

2) Then the built-in DHCP server will assign IP address for the PC.

Now, you can run the Ping command in the command prompt to verify the network connection between your PC and the Router.

The following example is in Windows 2000 OS.

Open a command prompt, and type ping 192.168.1.1, and then press Enter.

If the result displayed is similar to the Figure , it means the connection between your PC and the Tp-Link Router has been established well.

Success result of Ping command

If the result displayed is similar to the Figure , it means the connection between your PC and the Tp-Link Router failed.

Failure result of Ping command

Please check the connection following these steps:

1. Is the connection between your PC and the Router correct?

Note:
The 1/2/3/4 LEDs of LAN ports which you link to on the Tp-Link Router and LEDs on your PC’s adapter should be lit.

2. Is the TCP/IP configuration for your PC correct?
Note:
If the Router’s IP address is 192.168.1.1, your PC’s IP address must be within the range of 192.168.1.2 ~ 192.168.1.254.

3. Try the IP address 192.168.0.1.
Note:
If the LAN IP of the modem connected with your Tp-Link router is 192.168.1.x,
the default LAN IP of the Router will automatically switch from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.0.1 to avoid IP conflict.
Therefore, in order to verify the network connection between your PC and the Tp-Link Router,
you can open a command prompt, and type ping 192.168.0.1, and then press Enter.
