Router


If you want to use multiple devices or just have WiFi, you have to get a router. The following tables list a few devices which have successfully worked in our network, although this list may not be complete.

Security advice

The TP-Link setup domains "tplinklogin dot net" and "tplinkextender dot net" are not correct anymore and may distribute malware.

We strongly recommend to change the default password of your WiFi. There are easy ways to determine the default passwords from the network's name and/or MAC-address for several devices.
