TP-Link router setup

We've been having problems with our internet and one of the tests was to try a different router. I have a tp-link router here but i'm having a lot of struggles with setting it up, as i have a mac air with no ethernet port so have to configure it wirelessly, and then it comes up with a load of settings i need to put in to link it with plusnet but i have no idea what settings to put in as it just says from your ISP. Help please?

Thanks for your post @amberb998.


Whilst both the other responses are spot on, @varonik's instructions do look to be more device specific and so I'd recommend giving them a go.


Please let us know how you get on.

If you can get past the WiFi set up stage with the TP link, the rest should be OK on WiFi.

Often routers come with a default SSID and no encryption.

You don't need the ISP set up to connect to the router by WiFi.
