• Check the connection status
Chapter 4
4. 1.

Quick Setup
Quick Setup wizard allows you to quickly configure your AP device step by step. Choose
the suitable operation mode according to your network environment and follow the
step-by-step instructions.
1.Visit http://tplinkap.net, and log in with the username and password you set for the
AP device.
2.Go to Quick Setup on the top of the page, and follow the on-screen instrustions to
configure your AP device.
4. 2.
WPS
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) feature can help you to quickly and securely connect to
a network. WPS functions differently in different operation modes. In Access Point and
Multi-SSID modes, the WPS feature can be used only when the network security is set
to None or WPA2-PSK/AES. In Repeater/Bridge and Client modes, this device can use
WPS (Push button method) to connect to Host network while local wireless networks
do not support the WPS feature.
This section will guide you to add a new wireless device to an existing network quickly
by the WPS feature. There are two ways to use this feature: by push button method and
by PIN (Personal Identification Number). The PIN method can only be applied in Access
Point and Multi-SSID modes.
Push Button Method
Follow the steps below to use WPS by push button method.
1.Press the WPS button on the real panel of the AP device. The WPS LED will blink slowly,
which shows the function has been triggered and the device is trying to connect or
to be conected. This process may take up to 2 minutes.

Customize Your Network
and Security Settings
This chapter guides you on how to configure advanced network and security settings
that are available for this AP device.
This chapter contains the following sections:
• Change the LAN Settings
• Specify DHCP Server Settings
• MAC Filtering
• Advanced Wireless Settings
Chapter 5
5. 1.

Change the LAN Settings
The AP device is preset to Obtain an IP address automatically, which allows the device
to dynamically obtain an IP address and gateway from the main router/AP. You just need
to enter http://tplinkap.net into the address bar to log into the web-based management
page. It is recommended to keep the default LAN settings to avoid IP conflict with the
main router/AP or other device on your local network. If it is necessary to change the
LAN settings, for example, your network requires a specific IP subnet, please perform
the following steps.
1.Visit http://tplinkap.net, and log in with the username and password you set for the
AP device.
2.Go to Advanced > Network > LAN page.
3.Select Use the following IP address option and type in a new IP Address appropriate
to your needs.
4.Leave the Subnet Mask and Default Gateway as it is.
5.Click Save.
Note:
After changing the IP address, you should enter the new IP address or use the domain name tplinkap.net to log into
the web-based management page.
5. 2.
Specify DHCP Server Settings
By default, the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) Server is set to Auto. If the
DHCP server of the host router/AP is disabled, the device’s DHCP server will automatically
assign valid IP addresses to clients. If the DHCP server of the host router/AP is enabled,
the device’s DHCP server will be unable to avoid IP conflict. You can switch On (enable)
or Off (disable) the DHCP server. If Off is selected and there is no other DHCP server
within your LAN, you have to configure the IP address for each client manually.

•
Beacon Interval - Enter a time interval between 40 and 1000 in milliseconds
to determine the duration between beacon packets that are transmitted
periodically by the device to synchronize the wireless network. The default is
100 milliseconds.
•
DTIM - This value determines the interval of the Delivery Traffic Indication
Message (DTIM). You can specify the value between 1 and 15 Beacon Intervals.
The default value is 1, which indicates the DTIM Period is the same as Beacon
Interval.
•
RTS Threshold - Enter a value between 1 and 2346 to determine the packet
size of data transmitted through the network. By default, the RTS (Request
to Send) Threshold size is 2346. If the packet size is greater than the preset
threshold, the device sends Request to Send frames to a particular receiving
station and negotiates the sending of a data frame, or else the packet will be
sent immediately.
•
Fragmentation Threshold - Specify the maximum packet size (in bytes)
transmitted through the network. If a packet size exceeds the fragmentation
threshold, the packet will be fragmented into multiple packets. Note that setting
the fragmentation threshold too low may result in poor network performance
because of excessive packets. The default and recommended setting is 2346
bytes.
•
AP Isolation - Select this checkbox to enable the AP Isolation feature that
allows you to confine and restrict all wireless devices on your network from
interacting with each other, but still able to access the Internet. AP isolation is
disabled by default.

Q5.What can I do if my wireless is not stable?
It may be caused by too much interference, you can try the following methods:
• Set your wireless channel to a different channel.
• Move the AP device to a new location away from Bluetooth devices and other
household electronics, such as cordless phone, microwave, and baby monitor, etc., to
minimize signal interference.
Q6.What can I do to maximize my signal strength in Repeater/Bridge
mode?
When choosing an ideal location to optimize wireless signal in Repeater/ Bridge mode,
please use the following tips.
• The Best Way is Halfway
Generally, the ideal location for the repeater is halfway between your wireless router
and your wireless clients. If that is not possible, place it closer to your wireless router to
ensure stable performance.
• Less Obstacles Ensure Better Performance
Choose a location with less obstacles that may block the signal between the AP device
and the host network. An open corridor or a spacious location is ideal.
• Less Interference Provides More Stability
Choose a location away from Bluetooth devices and other household electronics, such
as cordless phone, microwave, and baby monitor, etc., to minimize signal interference.
