    I have just bought the device. I works fine as a AP out of the box. I want to use it as a repeater of my wireless network which uses a Linksys Simultaneous Dual Band N Router WRT400N

    1. To do the setup, I have tried to login at I cannot do this (a) using a wireless connection to a Linksys router which is connected to the cable modem and (b) wired connection to the router which is connected to the cable modem. The attempts get a timeout messaage.

    I found the answer

    1. Go to


    2. Go to the section on Repeater, follow the link and you arrive at


    The instructions are very clear. Although I have not reviewed, I suspect the instructions are of similar quality for setting the other modes.

    I wish these instructions were included with the package or in the downloadable user guide. The user guide was useless.

    The problem I had to address was to set the IP address for my computer to so that I can access the management utility at in order to programme the device as a repeater. I was having a problem because the IP address was automatically assigned by my wireless router (Linksys) which has an address of

    In summary, the instructions explained how to temporarily set up the IP address for my computer so that I can connect to the TP-Link device (WRT700N). I was then able to log into the managmenet utility page and make the settings.

    The web-based management page of TP-Link devices is a built-in internal web server, it does not require internet access, but requires a physical connection between the TP-Link router and the device you are trying to log into its management page with.

    For wired devices such as wired routers and switches, please plug your computer to the LAN port by cable and make sure the corresponding LAN LED Indicator lit up.
    Some TP-Link Devices (TL-WR700N Walmart Version), (TL-WA854RE) do not have LAN port, then please connect to its wireless network (TP-LINK_XXXXXX) first to access its web interface.

    Your computer/device must have an IP from the TP-Link device to be able to access its web management page. Most of TP-Link devices have DHCP function enabled by default, which means it will assign IP Address to your computer/device automatically. Managed Switches and some Access Points do not have a DHCP Server function enabled, in this case, you will need set up a manual IP Address ( for your computer/device to access the management page.

    Input the Gateway/router IP Address into the Address bar (also called Location bar or URL bar) instead of the Search Bar.
    Sometimes the firewall or antivirus software on your computer will block access to the router, close the firewall or antivirus software can fix the issue. Although in some cases another device will be needed or removal of the Antivirus software may be needed. After installation check out internet speed test
