Here we will guide you to log into the Management Webpage of your Range Extender step by step.

Step 1. Please use an Ethernet cable to connect your Range Extender to your PC first.

Note: It is strongly suggested that wired connection should be your first choice. But if you really don’t have any PC, or your RE product like TL-WA854RE doesn’t have any Ethernet port, in this situation, you can only choose wireless connection.

Step 2. Now open a web-browser (IE or any other browser) and type in “” or the domain name “” in the address field of the browser.


Step 3. After a moment, a login window will appear as shown below. Enter admin for the User Name and Password (both in lower case letters). Then click OK or press Enter.


Step 4. After successful login, there will pop up the Quick Setup Start page. Click Next to get the quick setup started.

If you failed to log in to the GUI, you can check if your PC has correctly acquired IP address from Range Extender via following steps. Here we take Windows 7 as demonstration. For other operating system, please refer to How to configure wired TCP/IP Properties of my computer(Windows XP,Vista,7,8,10,Mac)

Click “start” and go to “control panel”.
