Tenda routers are a popular choice for home and small office users due to their affordability and ease of use. As my home office is set up on the first floor, I was not able to get good signals up there, so I started using the Tenda router 3 months before, and now the internet speed is quite satisfying.
I could do my work, and write blogs, postings, and games that I play with my friends very easily. All thanks to the Tenda router I am using right now. However, setting up a Tenda router can be a bit confusing for those who are new to networking. In this blog post, I will provide a step-by-step guide on how to set up your Tenda router and get it up and running in no time. So let’s dive into it:
Connect the Router to your Modem:
The first step in setting up your Tenda router is to connect it to your modem. Take the Ethernet cable that came with your router and plug one end into the WAN port on the router and the other end into the modem. This will establish a connection between your router and the internet. But in my case, as the modem was on the ground floor and the Tenda router was on the first floor, I can’t establish a connection using an Ethernet cable. So what I did was connect my router to the modem wireless. I will be attaching a link to a YouTube video that you can use to do the same.
Connect your Computer to the Router:
Next, you’ll need to connect your computer to the router. Take another Ethernet cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router and the other end into your computer. This will establish a connection between your computer and the router. Well, this step was quite easy for me, as the router was next to my PC, and I required a small-length Ethernet cable to connect both.
Power on the Router:
Once the router is connected to your modem and computer, plug it in and power it on. You should see the power LED on the router turn on. I connected my router to the computer first and then establish a connection with the modem, so till that time my router was technically powered on, LOL.
Configure the Router:
The next step is to configure the Tenda router, Which can be complex for some people to understand, so read carefully. Open a web browser on your computer and enter the IP address of the router in the address bar (the IP address will be provided along the router). The IP address can usually be found in the user manual or on the bottom of the router.
Once you’ve entered the IP address, you’ll be prompted to enter a username and password. The default username and password can also be found in the user manual or on the bottom of the router, usually, it is “Admin” for both, username and password. If you have reached this far my friends, well you have successfully covered one of the complex parts.
Configure the Wireless Settings:
Once you’re logged into the router’s configuration page, you can change the wireless settings. This includes the SSID (network name), the password, and the security settings. Be sure to choose a strong password and select WPA2-PSK as the security type. Be sure to connect the Tenda router as you are reading this article, as this can be a little tricky to remember.
Configure the LAN Settings:
Next, you can configure the LAN settings. This includes the IP address and DHCP settings. You can leave the IP address as the default or change it to something else. Make sure to select the DHCP server and enable it. Again this part can be tricky and difficult to remember so you can take a screenshot.
Save the Settings:
Once you’ve finished configuring the router, be sure to save the settings. This will ensure that your changes take effect. You can follow this video as well to completely establish a connection with the modem and set your router to run. Do let me know if it helped you in setting up your Tenda router in the comments section.
Test the Internet Connection:
Finally, test your internet connection. Open a web browser and try to access a website. If you’re able to access the website, your router is set up correctly. If not, check your connections and settings to make sure everything is configured correctly. If yes, you are now able to configure your Tenda router successfully. It worked for me on the first attempt, and it really worth the time spent on establishing a connection.

In my opinion at last, setting up a Tenda router looks like hectic and complex work to do on your own, but instead, it is a relatively simple process that can be completed in just a few steps. By following the instructions that I have mentioned above, you’ll be able to get your router up and running in no time.
It’s also important to regularly check for firmware updates and security patches to keep your router running smoothly and keep your network security for the longer term. If you encounter any problems during the setup process, refer to the user manual or contact the manufacturer for assistance.
