Connect the devices together

Here we recommend you connect your device to Tenda device by a wired connection.

Step 1:

Take an Ethernet cable to connect your computer with one of the yellow LAN ports of the Tenda device.

Step 2:

Ensure that the light corresponding to the LAN port where the Ethernet cable is connected to is lit. If it is lit, you may proceed with the next procedure. Otherwise, try to connect your computer to another yellow LAN port or change another Ethernet cable.

Note: There is only one LAN or LAN/WAN port on some devices like A5/A6/A3/A30/N3/3G150B/PW201A, etc. You can only log into the setup page wirelessly for A5 and 3G186R.

Log into the Tenda web-based setup page

Find out the login IP address on the label located on the back of the Tenda device, and then enter it in the address bar of a web browser. Enter the login username and password if prompted, generally admin both for username and password. If you changed the login IP address or password, you should login with the new IP address and password.
