I have a question regarding the admin page on the router. Default it seems to accept only http access and I cannot find the option to switch this to ssl over https. Now the admin password goes across the WLAN in clear text which is not secure and not what I want. Is there any way to change the setting so the page is only accessible through https?

I bought the TL-WDR4300 almost 6 months ago using it on my TM Streamyx broadband service, it worked perfectly and this is indeed a very good product very reasonably priced too Kudos to TP-Link. The thing is shortly after purchasing it, I moved to Maxis Home Fibre Internet (more bandwidth). Following the ISP change the router has since went back into the box and had been there for 5 months now. This is because without the VLAN tagging feature or a Maxis mode, it is currently incompatible with Maxis Home Fibre Internet and will stay that way.I understand this is by no mean TP-Link's fault but I and many other WDR4300 owners on Maxis, if TP-Link could look into ENABLING VLAN TAGGING FEATURE/MAXIS MODE on this device. This I am sure would work with TP-Link sales as there are not many routers out there with this feature set and price range that could work with Maxis Home Fibre Internet.

During long, heavy download streams (such as BT, video streaming) the router WDR4300 would still lock up the internet (WAN) connection for that client. I could still go to the admin web page on that client but no internet activity would occur until either rebooting the router.

I have no problems connecting on a 5 GHz band or wired to the router. However any device connecting on 2.4 Ghz gets barely any bandwidth and drops after running for a short time. I have test numerous devices and have the same issue. What was odd is a device on 5GHz that worked fine had the same issue when connecting on 2.4 GHz which seems to say it is only that band. I have an old router that works fine on 2.4 GHz on channel 1 with all the security settings I used on the 4300.

Get GMT throws an error. I set known good public NTP servers, still get error. Also power cycling or rebooting the router seems to drop manual time settings, as well. I am using WDR4300 as a wireless access point, does that matter? Maybe I don't need time in access mode? It is connected to the Internet and is providing internet access to clients.

I have an issue with my TL-WDR4300 (regular, internet sharing use, no Open WRT or similar things). It was working well, until one day that my devices only receive the 2.4 GHz signal (no 5 GHz) and then I try to connect to 2.4 GHz and it asks for a password. I put my regular password and it doesn't work. Then I tried to bring it to factory default settings, I push the reset button for 8 seconds as the manual points and then same thing. What could I do?

Recently I replaced my Linksys WRT54G for a TP-Link WDR4300. But unfortunately this did not result in an increased speed.On both the 5GHz and 2.4GHz speed is limited to roughly 2.5-3 MByte/s, which is OK for watching movies etc. but I could reach those speeds with the 802.11g router as well!
I'm using the WDR4300 as access point, so I disabled DHCP server and NAT functionality, left the WAN port empty. And I set fixed IP in the subnet range of my modem/router. (horrible Speedtouch device). All works fine and stable, but too slow.
In the wireless settings I tried the 20 and 40MHz bandwith, disabled WMM, tried to lower the transmission power, tried to set a fixed channel. But all those changes do not have a significant influence on the transfer speed. (both on 2.4 and 5GHz) I'm the only 5GHz access point in my neighborhood, so interference cannot be a problem. The clients indicate a link speed of 300mbps very close to the router, and this drops to indication of 54mbps further away, but effective link speed remains fairly constant (and stable!) (I find it strange that indicated link speed already drops at 3 meters with clear line of sight to the router)
I did the tests with fixed IPs on two laptops and no devices connected on the LAN ports, to rule out problems caused by the modem/router or other clients.The tests were done using a Lenovo x220 and Asus Zenbook, both with Intel dual band 802.11n wifi interfaces. The Lenovo reaches 22MByte/s via the Cisco access point at my work (with less signal as at home).

My DSL connection comes into our house in the basement and the DSL modem came with a router included. I bought the WDR4300 for the higher speed wireless connections and the gigabit ports. I really don't need the "router" functionality. I would like to put the WDR4300 on the second floor to give (hopefully) the broadest wireless range. However, I would like all my PCs (including those wirelessly connected) to be on the same sub-net. Is there a way to configure the WDR4300 so it acts like a switch rather than a router?

I got a new TP-Link TL-WDR4300, connected it to my online pure sine wave UPS like I did with my previous routers with no problem.After about 24 hours, router crashes - no access to web interface, no internet (wired or wireless), must reboot to get it to work again.Router was replaced, same problem with new router.The firmware is the latest one and is customized for Israel because of 5GHz limitations.I was told by the representative in Israel that I should try to connect it to another AC outlet instead of the UPS.

so i have a sb6141 cable modem that is mine and not a lease. it works like a champ when hard wired to my desktop. i just got my hands on a new shiny tp-link wdr4300 yesterday and after messing with it for the better part of 2 hours, something seems to be amiss with the communication between the two. everything will be humming along fine and all of a sudden i get the dreaded PAGE CANNOT BE DISPLAYED. sure as the world i look at the modem and all the lights are off and its resetting itself. and honestly this continues until i pull the power and plug it back up. i think maybe one time in the middle of the night i actually saw it reset itself and then come back online.

My ISP has provided me a router: Zyxel P-2601HN which has an ideal WLAN transfer rate of 150 mbps. I live in a concrete 2 story house so signals are weak at best on the other floor - therefore, I Have bought the TL-WDR4300 as an extension for the latter floor. I have connected the routers from LAN to LAN and the Zyxel has 192.168.1.1 on LAN and the TL-WDR4300 had 192.168.0.1 as out set. I have changed this to 192.168.1.2 and all the setup (disabled DHCP + other) seems to work alright. BUT i can not log into the TL-WDR4300 !! Not with http://192.168.1.2 and not with [URL]. What I can do to get into the setup of TL-WDR4300. I know I can alays backup the setting and reset the router and load the setting again, make alterations, saving .....but it kind of drastic !Can the two radios SSID names (2,4 MHz and 5 MHz) be the same name as the SSID name on the Zyxel P-2601HN ? What are the implications ?

I purchased a WDR4300 yesterday and have set it up. The internet is running smoothly although the transfer speed is rather slow. When transferring from my computer to my Seagate GoFlex Home i get about 6 - 8 mbps with Wireless N. The router is set to only use Wireless-N and my laptop has the latest drivers. I have also tried other computers in the house and the speed is the same. The GoFlex Home is connected to the router via a LAN cable. Prior to updating i used a Linksys WRT54GL and managed speeds of about 3 or 4 mbps over its G only connection. As for transfers between 2 computes the rate is about 1 - 3 mbps
As for distance the Wireless router is only about 1.5 meters from the laptop (across the room) with nothing in between them to cause interference. I have also checked what channels my neighbors use (using inSSIDer) and picked 13 as there is only 1 other person nearby on that channel and they are quite far away.

This is frustrating I owned the router for about 2 weeks. my 2.4ghz is out. Basically I connect to the router on 2.4 can get into the tp-link admin webpage for the router but no internet at all. if I switch to 5 ghz everything works great, or if i use direct connect wire everything is great. I tried disabling NAT but that shut down all my internet connections across all links and manually switching to channel 1 did nothing at all i also tried channel 7. Ideas why only 2.4 ghz is affected out of the blue all of a sudden?

The 5 ghz connects fine for multiple machines however machines on 2.4 simultaneously lose their connection to the internet, sometimes saying it is still connected to the internet when it is not and sometimes losing connection with the router entirely. The 5ghz still works when this happens.

I've been using inSSider on Windows and trying different settings on my 4300 to get wireless n @ 300MHz working with no luck. The maximum I seem to be able to get it to run is 144MHz.
Is this a fault with the router or the firmware? Since the router is advertised to run at 300Mhz, then by rights if it does not or cannot, then TP-Link owes everyone a refund, at least in Australia because this counts as false advertising.
I had a similar issue with my 1043ND as well. Has anyone got a 4300 working at 300 MHz?

I recently bought the N750 wireless dual band router and I would like to setup a bridge with another router that I'm currently using.
I have followed the instructions in the documentation [URL]. But I've had 0 success in getting this to work.
How to get this feature to work?
I followed each step to the letter. In the last step when my router reboots I noticed that the System light doesn't flash. Which indicates that there is a system error (according to the user manual). But I'm unable to determine what the system error is because I can no longer log into my router's Administration page anymore.
in the instructions (link above) it says to disable DHCP, so I manually assign an IP address to my computer setting the gateway IP address to the IP address I manually assigned to my router. I can see that a connection to the router is established, but I'm unable connect to the internet and when I type in the IP address of my router I'm unable to get into the administration menu.
I checked the wireless connections on my source router and I don't see the IP address of the N750 router.

I bought this router to replace my WNDR3700v1 (by Netgear).Although on short distance the Netgear is outperformed, on the other site of the house the 2,4GHz signal is lost often (where the Netgear would still work). Both routers are located on the same location (not simultaneously) and settings are identical (channel, band, security, etc.).
I was wondering if I could get more performance out of the TP-Link by positioning the antennas in different angles. All antennas were positioned vertically and I also tried having the outer antennas under 30 degrees.

I just upgraded my DLink DIR655 to WDR4300. My VOIP service has worked for the last 5 years. But with WDR4300, I'm frequently experiencing dropped calls. The call will be cut off every 20 seconds or so. This is really a deal-killer.

No matter what I try, the signal strength never gets better that 30%, even when I have my laptop next to the router. I have tried various settings (found in these forums), but nothing seem to work. My old D-Link performed better, both close and over distances.

In the absence of true QoS capability on the 4300, what is the best way to give bandwidth priority to one of my network devices?
I have an Apple Airport Extreme connected to my network. It is used to stream music from my Ipod to my sound system. I do this through my network (rather then connecting the IPod directly to the AE) so that I can connect to radio stations over the internet. The problem is that I'm getting random dropouts (pauses in streaming). I've shut down everything on the IPod to make sure that there are no Apps competing for WIFI resources. The dropouts happen even if there is little activity on the network (e.g., file downloads, youtube, etc.)
What I want to do is to get the 4300 to give top priority to the AE. How can I do this without QoS capability? Can I allocate more bandwidth to the AE when it is receiving streaming data?
Note: The AE is always connected to the network. It uses DHCP to get it's IP address. It is connected to the 5G band. Signal strength is typically 1 to 2 of 3 bars (average is 1.5 bars). The 2.4G band has a slightly higher signal strength but the same dropouts occur so the problem does not appear to be signal strength.

Just got my new TL-WDR4300 router. Set it up last night with the latest firmware. I can connect to Internet using a wired cable. However, I can't connect to Internet via wifi. I already tried 2 laptops (Vista & Win XP) and 2 tablets - I can see my wifi signal, connect to it (with my password), even obtained IP address (from ipconfig). However, when I tried to open a web page (eg google), it can't connect to Internet (always got timeout or service not found). Again, same laptop has no problem if I use a cable to connect to my router.
