Today, I am going to show you how to login to your Tenda router so as to do your own custom configuration settings such as WIFI password and username. The Tenda router is one of the cheapest and yet most effective home WIFI routers to use in homes and offices. It operates in the 2.4Ghz band frequency, meaning that it works well with most of the devices that we use in our day to day lives like your smartphone, laptop and PC. And it is also an option for guys who are not in fibre-ready zones, since you can get wireless internet in the building by establishing a point to point connection from a sender to your receiver using Wireless radios.
But what happens if you have bought your router and now you are ready to stream your favorite movie and show, but you can’t login and do the necessary configurations? Let’s dive in.

1. Connecting to the network

You will need to make sure your router is connected to the network using either WIFI or with the help of a LAN cable. When using WIFI, use the username and password provided at the back of the router as your credentials for log in. If you are not connected to the network, you will not be able to login and configure the settings on the device.
If  you are using the LAN cable, you will need to set your computer to a static IP address. For the Tenda router you will need to use the subnet of (that is from 1-254 for the last number in the address). 
  1. Go to Control Panel
  2. Then go to Network and Sharing Centre
  3. View Network status and tasks
  4. Change Adapter settings
  5. In the drop down box, click on the IPV4 settings, and insert the static IP shown above.

2. Logging in through the browser

Open your browser and input the login IP address, which is the default address used for Tenda routers. It will redirect you to the Tenda login page. The Tenda router does not ask for credentials to login at this point, so click on the Login button. If the computer prompts you for login credentials, then fill in the blank spaces with ‘admin’ and click on Login. If you had credentials inserted before, you will have to use those to login.
Good job! You are now logged on to the console of your router and you are one or two steps away to do your own custom settings.

3. What’s next? Configuration and installation

The steps above seem easy to do but you might encounter a few problems here, especially if you are a beginner. If you want a more detailed approach to follow, check out this Youtube video that takes you throughout the entire process.
To login to your Tenda router is usually the first step to follow when setting up your settings such as the WIFI username, password and even firewall.
