TP-link is a leading manufacturer of networking peripherals bases in Shenzen, China. TP-link WiFi routers are among the very best WiFi routers available in the market. Here is a guide in which we are going to explain how to connect your TPlink router to another router.
There are many reasons why you might want to connect one TPlink router to another TP link router.
If you have set up your router in a small office, you might face connectivity issues in some regions of office which are located far from the TP-link WiFi router. In such a situation, if you connect an additional router and use it to access the internet, you will get better connectivity.
Another reason why someone might want to connect two TP-link WiFi routers is because of more number of devices. If you’re going to connect several devices to your WiFi router, all your devices will suffer from low transfer speed. A single WiFi router can connect to up to 10, 15, 20 or as many numbers of devices as specified by the manufacturer. This number depends on the exact WiFi router model. If you want to connect more devices, then you must get another WiFi router. For more information, visit How To setup tplink wifi router.
Connecting the second WiFi router to your TPlink router is a tedious process and should be done with the help of an experienced person. You may end up losing internet connection completely if you mess up during the process.
If you interconnect two WiFi routers, you will have to use the first WiFi router as a normal router, and this router will be used to access the internet. You have to turn off automatic channel selection in the security tab of the first WiFi router.
Then you have to connect the secondary WiFi router to the first one with the help of an ethernet cable.
Then you have to disable the DHCP server of the second WiFi router to avoid Internet Protocol address conflicts between the two WiFi routers. This avoids any network configuration conflicts between the WiFi routers.
Next up, you have to set the internet gateway of our second WiFi router to the IP address of the first WiFi router.
Then you have to configure the security settings of both the WiFi router in the same way. Keeping the SSID and password same will ensure that the devices connected to the environment can switch between the WiFi networks of two WiFi routers automatically.
Now both the WiFi routers set up a WiFi network with a common name. If a device moves from one area to another area where the signal strength of the second WiFi router is better than the former, the device will automatically switch to the second WiFi network.
