TP-Link Router Login

You can access the login page of any TP-Link router by visiting http://tplinkwifi.net from any device connected to the router.

TP-Link has a wide range of routers and access points. In our research, we found four different user interfaces and login systems.

Some TP-Link routers require a username and password to log in, while others require only a password.
