I get this new router TL-WR841N from amazon.com, I get no signal/internet connection on my computer when I install/connect the router using the installation min CD (same procedure at listed here: url...The DSL connection is good, since I get internet connection when I connect my modem directly (without the router) to my computer. My modem is the old Siemens SpeedStream 4100 with IP Address of 192.168.0.1 from ATT.Is my router deficit ?

recently i bought wireless router TL-WR841N and there hasn't been a day or should i say few hours without restarting/turning on-off.I have cable(no modems,etc)Longest time it has ran without restarting was around 20hours.The problem is it RANDOMLY looses connection like this , but it's not the only problem , mostly when i leave computer and go to sleep or other business i leave router turner ON (no else have access to it and no one touches it), when i come back it just does not connect to internet, it shows that everything is fine , but i have no access to internet.This happens to all connected computers.I have dynamic ip I have russian version of windows xp sp3 , but i think everything is pretty understandable here. connection timed out/request timed out

FYI the problem is not in my computers(i tried setting up wireless networks from 2 different pc's) and i'm pretty sure it's not ISP's fault too(everything works fine through cable) , because this never happens with other wireless networks, etc.

i bought the TL-WR841N a week back. the problem is that the internet connection has a web based login( wherin i have to go the "login.hathway.com" and enter a username and password provided by the service provider). i was wondering if there is anything i can do so that the wifi router on its own can log on to my account automatically every time i connect a device to the router. This would save alot of time for me.

We received new tablet and smart tv but cannot use them due to connection problems. The tv will not connect to the router and the tablet shows strong router strength but will not connect to the internet. I checked for firmware updates and there are 3. Do I simply install the latest firmware or all 3?

The sun sign on the modem has been flashing for a couple of days but I am still getting the internet. Is there anyway I can find out why its doing this? I have tried rebooting but still starts to flash.

I have recently purchased and installed a TL-WR841N wireless router to replace an older system. After following all of the quick install guide and the like I got it set up and working correctly both wired and wireless. However one laptop in the household, an Acer Aspire 5315 running Windows Vista 32bit, does not connect. Using an ethernet cable works fine but the wireless signal is seen and appears to connect but does not find the internet and states Local Only Access.When connected wirelessly I also cannot ping the device but when connected with a cable I can and get a good return.The firmware is up to date on the router and the latop is full up to date with drivers and windows updates.

I am wondering if it is worth switching to OpenWRT firmware for my TL-WR841N V8.0 ..Has anyone successfully switched to OpenWRT Attitude Adjustment Release (12.09) ? If so are you happy with the features and stability provided ? I checked for the Gargoyle firmware, and t seems there are still some issues with TL-WR841N release 8.0 ... Therefore I am not considering this alternative firmware for now.

I recently encountered a problem with my router. It's configuration page is not accessible quickly. When I opened it ( by typing 192.168.1.1 in my browser) it took ages to open and even when it did, the page lacked a lot of features i.e., it did not load properly. Then on a suggestion by a friend, I downloaded the latest correct version (I have an IQ above 60) for my router but the problem persisted. And it is only on my PC. When I access it from some other PC, it opens as it should. My router is only 6 months old.

I bought a TL-WR841N to use instead of our Virgin Super-hub which dropped the wifi regularly. It took me a while but I stumbled with the set up and got it working.Super-hub (in modem mode) - cable - TL-WR841N - 2 x cables running to 2 switches for (TV, Sky+, WII) and (PC, X-Box). Everything is spot on apart from the other half's Iphone and Ipad. Neither of them can get on the web in the bedroom. Both apples will join the network, but none will be able to get onto the web. The Wifi bars are on display on both products but they just keep spinning and searching to get on the web. I bought a Huawei repeater plug hoping that would work, but it just slows down everything else that can get on the network.Remembering that this happens only in one room, is there something that I can alter that would let these 2 apples access the web besides walking out on the landing every time she needs to update a web page ?

I have had my WR841N for about a year, supplied to me by my WISP. I like the router in terms of facilities but it seems to have one really annoying problem.
The router becomes inaccessible via the webpage after a random period of several days. I have at times associated the issue with occasional loss of radio broadband service but it is not always so. To try and further localise the problem I set the router up to send emails of the log to me every two hours from 17/04/2013 but today for the second time the emails stopped arriving after the 02:29 message and the router is inaccessible again. The router previously locked up with loss of broadband service on 26/04/2013 sometime after emailing a log at 02:41 on that day but had been running without issue from a cold restart at 12:25 as soon as I noticed loss of service. Today I have not lost broadband service and so even though I am no longer receiving an emailed log or able to access the router via its webpage I am leaving well alone for the present. Some months ago when I originally noticed the web access issue I downloaded and installed the latest firmware TL-WR841N-v7-120201 and I note that there have been no further firmware releases for the v7 model.
My broadband service is delivered via radio link from a local transmitter mast and is reliable with typical download speed of 20-30Mbps and 30-40Mbps upload, seldom if ever affected by weather so I now feel the problem is inherent in the router rather then being the result of some issue affecting broadband service which has been solid since 26/04/2013
Without the log I have no way of knowing what was happening when the router became inaccessible but I attach the last 24 hours of received log below.

I received this router today, I have a MacBook Pro and a iPhone. The router came with a very small cd, I was very disappointed because , when I purchased this router from amazon , the discription read that this router is Mac compatiable. But that is not true if the cd is not compatiable! My problem is I get a good signal for wifi, but I can not open any websites with my Mac or my iphone.
I have a fibre optic internet connection, the modem being connected to the TP Link wireless router. The set up works fine most of the time, but at times all the computers connected lose internet connection. The ISP says everything is fine from their end, and locally we are all connected to the wireless router just fine when this happens. I usually just unplug the modem and the wireless router from their power, in order to reset everything, and this seems to solve it.

Currently I am using 2 WA5210Gs and a WR941ND to send my wireless connection from one home to another. The original home utilizes a TDS DSL modem/router combo. Everything works great, but then generally withing 24 hours I will randomly drop my internet connection in the second home, but the network is still up and running strong. The modem is not the problem, because I am able to grab a faint signal from the WA5210G AP connected to the modem and access the internet, and the client WA5210G AP is running at full signal. If I power down the router and restart it, the problem is fixed, but happens again within 24 hours. Originally I changed the IP on the WR941 thinking it was an IP conflict with the modem/router, but the problem occurred again. I also tried switching to unicast DHCP, but the problem still persisted. I looked for a firmware update, but couldn't find a newer version..

This is already my second model of the router, which got under warranty. The first model had a problem because it brokes off Internet connections. This second model also breaks the connection. I'm going to give it to complain. Before I do it I would like to ask if there are any ways to improve the router without the need to dispose of the device.

I currently have a issue with my TP-link WR941N.When I first connected the router I had a good internet speeds of about 70 mbps. My max provided by the ISP is 120Mbps but 70 was acceptable for me. Recently however the connection is terrible. I regularly have a speeds of 6Mbps via the router, When i directly to the modem via kabel I get a speed of 120Mbps. Therefore I ruled out that the connectivity problem is due to my ISP.
I brought this TP-Link wireless router months ago, and I decided to use it this time. Upon connecting the cables, all the lights are OK, however, during the installation, my pc cannot find the router. I read that supposedly the IP addresses of my PC and the router should be the same. But, even if i change the IP address (to 192.168.1.xxx), the computer still can't find it. Pinging it results to a timed-out request.

I just got a new 2011 Toshiba Satellite L755 laptop with Windows 7, I also have a 2006 Compaq Presario with the original Windows Vista. We use a DIR-615 router for WIFI connection on both. The old Compaq will keep a connection with no problem and never looses a connection. The new Toshiba will keep 3 bars of signal but will not keep a constant connection to the internet. Do I need to upgrade my router, which I bought the one I have about 3-4 years ago, or could it possibly be a problem with my new computer?

I have a T L-WR1043ND v1.9 with the latest factory firmware that I recently purchased. Ran fine for a couple of weeks. Now my WAN connection seems to be dropping. I get an IP and DNS from the ISP but I cannot ping anything (google etc...) past the router. I have to hit the detect button or release and renew the IP in order to gain access. Then after a few hours or a day the issue reoccurs.

I've got a problem with the wireless dropping out randomly. It may take a week before it stops or a couple of hours. I originally thought my microwave oven was swamping the signal when we used it so I relocated the router much further away but this hasn't changed anything. I can still log in to the router from a computer on the wired ports and reboot the router. It also thinks the wireless is working but everything looses connection to it. We have 3 laptops and 4 phones that use the wireless and they all cannot connect when it goes down. This is only a new device - less than 6 months?
