TPLink Archer C64 AC1200 FTTP Setup Guide

Last updated on by Freeola Support

Welcome to the Freeola Internet customer support pages. This guide is designed to help with setting up a TPLink Router to work with Freeola FTTP Broadband services. For more internet help topics please visit our main Support Page.

While this guide was written using the model C64 AC1200 as a base, these instructions should still be correct for other models of the hardware, albeit with some slight wording and visual differences.

In order to configure your router you will need to be connected to it either wirelessly or via an Ethernet cable (a wired connection is recommended). Once connected, open your chosen internet browser (Firefox, Edge, Chrome, Safari etc.).

Setting up Your Router
  1. In the address bar of your web browser enter the default IP address of the router, http://192.168.0.1.
    If you are unsure of where the address bar is on your software, the keyboard shortcut of Ctrl+L is widely used to highlight this field.

  2. When logging into the router for the first time you will be prompted to create a new Administrator Password. Once you have created your Password, click Let's Get Started to begin the Setup Wizard.

  3. The router will now begin the Quick Setup Wizard. For the purposes on this guide, we will be setting up the connection manually, so click Skip. This should present you with the Main Menu.

    Should you wish to access the Quick Setup in the future, this can be accessed from the Advanced > Quick Setup menu options.
  4. To set your Internet Connection Settings select Internet from the Top Menu.

  5. The new page, Internet, will offer three options:

    • Internet Connection Type - PPPoE

    • Username - Enter your Freeola supplied Connection Username, which will be in the format of [email protected].

    • Password - Enter your Freeola supplied Connection Password.
      Your Connection Information will have been sent to you via e-mail before your activation, and can also be accessed by selecting Broadband Details and Usage from within your MyFreeola Control Panel.

  6. Click Save to save this information. Your router should now connect automatically, but a restart may be required in some circumstances.

Setting up Wireless
  1. If you are already logged into your router, please skip to Step 2. Otherwise, in the address bar of your web browser enter the default IP address of the router, http://192.168.0.1, then enter the Login Username and Password (found on the router) when prompted.
    If you are unsure of where the address bar is on your software, the keyboard shortcut of Ctrl+L is widely used to highlight this field.

  2. Once logged in, select Wireless from the Top Menu.

  3. The Wireless Settings page will now appear, allowing you to configure your wireless network:

    • Smart Connect - Enable this option to share the SSID and Password between both 2.4GHz and 5GHz Networks. Unless you have a specific reason to separate these, enabling this option is recommended, but for the purposes of this guide, we have unticked this option.

    2.4GHz - Enable if you wish to use 2.4GHz Wireless

    • Network Name - Set this to the name you would like for your Wireless Network. By default, this will be listed on the base of the router.

    • Security - WPA/WPA2-Personal.

    • Password - Your desired WiFi Password. By default, this will also be listed on the base of the router.

    5GHz - Enable if you wish to use 5GHz Wireless

    • Network Name - Set this to the name you would like for your Wireless Network. By default, this will be listed on the base of the router.

    • Security - WPA/WPA2-Personal.

    • Password - Your desired WiFi Password. By default, this will also be listed on the base of the router.

    Guest Network - If you would like a separate Wireless Networks for others to use, enable this option. This is an advanced feature and not recommended unless you have specific reason to use it.
