1. Take an Ethernet cable to connect your modem with the blue WAN port of the router.
2. Then take another Ethernet cable to connect your computer with one of the yellow LAN port of the router.
3. Please check the LED lights on the router after connection. Make sure SYS light is blinking ,WLAN light is on or blinking ,one of LAN ports (12,3,4) is on, WAN light is on or blinking
II, Login to the management page of the router:
1、open your web browser (IE, Firefox, Safari, etc) find the address bar leave it blank type 192.168.0.1 Press enter.
3、Then you will see the following homepage of Tenda router.
4. To secure your wireless network quick and simple on the home page.
Simply define a custom security key. Security mode and Encryption type here is preset to WPA-PSK and AES respectively by default. If you don’t customize a security key, then “12345678” is populated automatically by default as a security key as seen below after you submit your settings
Here you can view WAN status and system status.
• Connection Status: Displays WAN connection status: Disconnected, Connecting or Connected.
• Disconnected: Indicates that the Ethernet cable from your ISP side is not correctly connected to device’s WAN port or the router is not logically connected to your ISP.
• Connecting: Indicates that the WAN port is correctly connected and is requesting an IP address from your ISP.
• Connected: Indicates that the router has been connected to your ISP.
• Connection Type: Displays current Internet connection type.
• WAN IP: Displays the IP address of WAN port provided by your ISP.
• Subnet Mask: Displays WAN subnet mask provided by your ISP.
• Gateway: Displays WAN gateway address.
• Preferred DNS Server: Displays the preferred DNS Server address.
• Alternate DNS Server: Displays the alternate DNS Server address .
5.2 Wireless Settings
• Enable Wireless: Check/uncheck to enable/disable the 2.4GHz wireless feature. If disabled, all wireless-based features will be disabled accordingly.
• Network Mode: Select a right mode according to your wireless client devices. The default mode is 11b/g/n mixed.
• 11b mode: Select it if you have only 11b wireless devices in your wireless network.
• 11g mode: Select it if you have only 11g wireless devices in your wireless network.
• 11b/g mixed mode: Select it if you have 11b and 11g wireless devicesin your wireless network.
• 11b/g/n mixed mode: Select it if you have 11b, 11g and 11nwireless devicesin your wireless network.
• Primary SSID: A SSID (Service Set Identifier) is the public name of a wireless network. This option is configurable and can’t be empty.
• Secondary SSID: This is alternate public name of a wireless network. This
• option is configurable and can be empty.
• SSID Broadcast: This option is enabled by default. Select “Enable”/”Disable” to make your wireless network visible/ invisible to any wireless clients within coverage when they perform a scan to see what’s available. When disabled, wireless clients will have to first know this SSID and manually enter it on their devices if they want to connect to the SSID.
• AP Isolation: Disabled by default. When enabled, wireless clients can’t share file or communicate with the wireless client connect to the same SSID.
• Channel: It is advisable that you select an unused channel or “Auto” to let device detect and select the best possible channel for your wireless network to operate on from the drop-
• Channel Bandwidth: Select a proper channel bandwidth to enhance wireless performance. When there are 11b/g and 11n wireless clients, please select 20/40M frequency band; when there are only non-11n wireless clients, select 20M frequency band mode.
• Extension Channel: Available only in 11b/g/n mixed mode. It is used to ensure N speed for 802.11n devices on the network.
• WMM-Capable: WMM is QoS for your wireless network. Enabling this option may better stream wireless multimedia data such as video or audio (recommended).
• ASPD Capable: Select to enable/disable the auto power saving mode. By default, this option is disabled.
• TX Power: Select a proper power level (High, Medium, Low) for optimal performance.
5.2 Wireless Security
This section allows you to secure your wireless network to block unauthorized accesses and malicious packet sniffing.
Wi-Fi Protected Setup makes it easy for home users who know little of wireless security to establish a home network, as well as to add new devices to an existing network without entering long passphrases or configuring complicated settings. Simply enter a PIN code or press hardware WPS button and a secure wireless connection is established.
WPS: Select to enable/disable the WPS feature. This option is disabled by default.
WPS Mode: Select PBC (Push-Button Configuration) or PIN.
PBC: To use the PBC option, select it and click “Save”; Then press the WPS button on router’s back panel for about one second while enabling WPS >PBC on the intended wireless client simultaneously.
PBC Operation Instructions: If you find the WPS LED blinking for 2 minutes after you press the hardware WPS button on the device for 1 second, it means that PBC encryption method is successfully enabled. And an authentication will be performed between your router and the WPS/PBC-enabled wireless client device during this time; if it succeeds, the wireless client device connects to your router, and the WPS LED displays a solid light. Repeat steps mentioned above if you want to add more wireless client devices to the device.
PIN: To use this option, you must know the PIN code from the wireless client and enter it in the corresponding field on your device while using the same PIN code on client side for such connection.
Reset OOB: Wireless module will be reset if clicked.
To use the WPS security, the wireless client must be also WPS-capable.
The WPA protocol implements the majority of the IEEE 802.11i standard. It enhances data encryption through the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) which is a 128-bit per-packet key, meaning that it dynamically generates a new key for each packet. WPA also includes a message integrity check feature to prevent data packets from being hampered with. Only authorized network users can access the wireless network. WPA adopts enhanced encryption algorithm over WEP.
WPA Encryption Type: Select AES (advanced encryption standard) or TKIP (temporary key integrity protocol).
WPA2 is based on 802.11i and uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) instead of TKIP. It is more secured than WPA and WEP.
