If you wish to log on to the Tenda router's console, you need to be connected to your network through the Wi-Fi or LAN cable. You will need a computing device to access the console from, such as a computer, mobile or tablet. Apart from that, you need a web browser on your device to access the web interface of the router.
To change the settings of your router, you can do Tenda wifi login in the following manner:
For Tenda wireless router login, you must be connected to the network. You can either connect to the network with the help of a LAN cable or access your WiFi. For access through WiFi, you need to fill in the username and password. However, you do not need a password to connect with a LAN cable. If you aren't connected to your network, you won't be able to access the Tenda login IP or run any functions on it. If you wish to access your router from a remote location, you can make use of a VPN.
After establishing a connection to the network, you need to access the Tenda login IP. Though different routers have different IPs assigned to them, you can access your Tenda wifi login interface through 192.168.0.1. If this IP doesn't work, you can also try 192.168.2.1. You need to type this IP in the browser's URL section and press enter. The link will then get converted into the http://192.168.0.1 link and redirect you to the Tenda router login page. If you've forgotten the IP of your router, you can easily find out with a command-line argument on your PC or the connection settings. The IP of your router is listed under the default gateway section. You can also find a list of default IPs of Tenda router on the internet.
Usually, you don't need any username or password to log on to your Tenda router. You can leave the space for username and password blank and just click on submit. If that doesn't work, you can also use admin as both username and password and log on to your router's console. However, if you've changed the username or password in the past, you can log on by submitting those in the respective values. If you're unable to gain access to the web interface of your router and haven't changed the password in the past, you may need to reset your router. For this, you'll have to press the reset button on your router and wait for it to reboot. Your router's settings will then be set to default, allowing you to log on to it. However, after you have logged on to the router with default username and password, you must change it. It will increase the security on your network so no one else can access your router and play with your network configuration.
Once you have logged on to your Tenda router, you will be able to change any settings that you wish to. The web interface of the router looks like a control panel with several options to set up your network as you want it to.
Some of the settings you can make here are:
- You can set up a static IP for your router
- Set up a new WIFI name or password
- Set up a firewall
- Open the ports for certain communication
You can also change the settings to default ones if the ones previously set are outdated or don't work anymore. However, you must be careful while changing the settings of your router as it may stop working with one wrong move. Therefore, you need to note down the initial values before making any changes over the network. This way, you'll be able to prevent any unlikely outcome.
Sometimes, your network or your router can stop working after you have changed the settings. However, you can easily revert these if you've noted down the values before making any changes to the settings. If you're unable to change anything still, you can reset your router. You can find instructions to reset your router online, as well. But if resetting your router through command line or console instructions doesn't work out, you may have to resort to the hard reset of the router.
You can do a hard reset of your router by pressing the reset button on it for about 30 seconds. This will reboot your router to its default settings, including its default username and password. Therefore, you will be able to change the settings to the one that works as per your wishes.
