TP-LINK ADSL Router Configuration for NTC Internet

Thursday, June 14, 2012
Here, I am going to show you how to configure ADSL router of TP-Link for accessing the internet service of NTC (Nepal Telecom Corporation). This tutorial is mainly for TP-Link router. For other brands of ADSL routers, the settings may be same but not the procedures.
The router can be configured in two modes: Bridge mode and Routing Mode

The Routing mode is recommended for most of the users as this mode is easy to configure and more secure. More secure in the sense that it uses PPPoE concept. 

In addition, routing mode is used for connecting multiple PCs and login information is stored in the router itself. Thing is different in bridge mode. It is used for connecting single PC and is less secure for which the login information is stored in the dialer of your computer.

So, let me show you how to configure your router using routing mode through the following steps. I assume that all necessary components are connected and working correctly.

Step 1
Open your browser (any) and type into the address bar. This is the default IP address of the TP-Link router.

A new window will open asking you to enter username and password.

The defaults are:
User Name : admin
Password : admin

Step 2
Enter the above information and log in.

Step 3
For first time users, Quick Start wizard may appear. Discard this and click on Internet Setup.

The following screen will appear.

Step 4
There are Virtual Circuits from 0-7. Activate only PVC0 and deactivate others.

Step 5
Again, return to PVC0 options from drop-down menu. Choose PPPoA/PPPoE in the ISP section.

Step 6
Enter the information as shown in the image below except username and password. Here, you need to enter username and password provided by Nepal Telecom.

Step 7
Save the settings.

This is it. You can now use NTC ADSL internet. Remember that, if connection is successful the Internet bulb on your router will be ON. Otherwise, there is still some problems. Let me know if this tutorial worked for you or not..
