Routers of the Chinese brand Tenda belong to the category of budget devices and are suitable for building a network at home, in a flat or office. Despite the low cost, Tenda routers are characterised by high quality.

The router has a WAN port (in the image on the far left, usually signed and highlighted in a different colour). This is where we connect the cable from the provider. To the right are LAN ports (there may be 2-4 depending on the model), which connect home devices PC, laptop, TV, etc. Next are the Power connector and the internal reset button of the router RST.


Preparing for setup

  1. Connect the cables, switch on the router.
  2. In the browser (Chrome, Mozilla, Opera, etc.) in the address bar write 192.168.0.1. Password can be found on the back of the router (usually it is «Admin»). Then it is recommended to make up your own and more reliable one (especially if you will configure remote access to the device), or you can google a site with a password generator and take it from there.
  3. Once you have entered the router web-interface, in the upper right corner you can change the language to the one you like.
  4. Then go to the settings: you need to select automatic obtaining of IP-address. To do this, go to «Internet Settings» and tick «Dynamic IP».
  5. After that, specify the MAC address for which the connection is registered. You can do this by going to your personal cabinet at the site, by calling technical support or by chat. Then save the MAC address in the router settings.
  6. Select «Administration» from the menu on the left – «WAN Parameters» – «Clon MAC-Manual», enter the data 12 characters in this format XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX and click «OK». Once the data is updated, you can try to access the site. Your device should receive an IP address from your ISP.
    There is a section «Login Password» where you can update the password to enter the router web-interface.

Setting up the WI-FI network

  1. Go to «Wireless Settings» (here you can customise the basic wireless network settings).
  2. Under «Wi-Fi Name and Password»:
    • In the «Wi-Fi Name» line, enter the name of the network. Make sure that «Hide Wi-Fi» is not ticked.
    • In the «Security Mode» line select «WPA/WPA2-PSK Mixed (Recommended)».
    • In the «Wi-Fi Password» line, enter the required password.
  3. In front of «Signal Strength select «High».
  4. In front of «Wi-Fi - Schedule» select «Disable».
  5. Under «Wireless Parameters»:
    • In the «Network Option» line select «11b/g/netsh».
    • In the line «Wireless Channel» – «Auto» (change only if you know exactly which channel is free).
    • In the line «Channel Width» – also «Auto».
  6. Click «Save». If there are any devices connected via Wi-Fi, you will need to reconnect them.

    In the «Administration» section, there are also such useful functions as «Set Time», «Router Reboot», «Factory Reset», «Save Configuration File», «Save Device Logs» and «Firmware Upgrade». All of these can come in handy if the router hangs or doesn't work as it should. Just in case, it's better to have a file with the settings so that you can quickly restore the device's functionality.
  7. In the «Backup a Configuration File» line, save all the data on the router.
  8. In the «Restore a Configuration File» line, specify the path where the file ready for restoration is stored.
