Wiring Diagram.

Proper wiring of the router is important for setup, configuration and uninterrupted connectivity. An external ADSL splitter is provided with this router. Your telephone line must be terminated to the ADSL splitter first. Nothing should be connected in this line before splitter. You can connect the parallel telephone instruments to the phone output of the splitter if required. See the connection diagram.

After proper wiring and connections, switch ON the modem. Connect the Ethernet port of your PC/Laptop with the supplied RJ-45 LAN cable.  Now coming to your computer’s network configuration settings. By default DHCP is enabled in this router and you need not to do anything with your PC network settings. To check the proper connectivity click the start button and type the command “cmd” in search box ( Windows 7). If you are using Windows XP after clicking the start button select the “run” tab and type “cmd”. Now the command prompt window will be opened. In that window type ping and press enter. If you are getting the result similar to the screenshot below, it shows your router is properly connected to PC.


If you are getting anything other than this, you have to configure your network adaptor.

Open your browser and type in the address bar. A popup window will be opened to enter user name and password. Use “admin” in both user id and password fields (small letters). A successful login will display the following basic status page. Select the WAN Settings sub menu by expanding the Network Menu as shown


The WAN setting page will display the WAN port information in a Table format as shown.


Delete all existing connections and press the ADD button to create an new connection. You will get a screen as shown below. Do the necessary changes as indicated in the image and save the settings


In this page you only need to change Four settings only.

First: Change the VPI/VCI settings as per your ISP. This setting is very much important for internet connectivity. Use the following VPI/VCI settings

  • BSNL Broadband – 0 and 35
  • MTNL Broadband – 0 and 32
  • Airtel Broadband  – 1 and 32
  • Reliance Broadband    – 0 and 35

Second: Select “PPPoE” from the drop down menu as WAN Connection Type under WAN service Type section.

Third :Enter the user id and password supplied by your ISP (BSNL, MTNL ). The field is case sensitive.

Fourth: Select the connection type to “Connect Automatically”. This will make connection automatically after switching ON the device. Click the save button after completing above mentioned steps. Reboot the modem by clicking the Reboot sub menu under System Tools Menu


Optionally you can reboot the router by OFF/ON the power supply.

WiFi settings of TP Link TD-W8968

Select the Basic Setting submenu of Wireless Menu in the configuration page. In Wireless Basic settings you can enter the SSID (Name of your wireless network), Mode (WiFi Standard), Channel and Channel width. You can use anything as SSID. Maximum character limit is 32. It is advisable to use the Mode 11bgn Mixed to make the router compatible for all type of client systems.


Keep the Channel and Channel width Auto. If you want, you can change the channel from the drop down menu. You must select to Enable Wireless Router Radio to use WiFi features of the router. If you select Enable SSID Broadcast option  When wireless clients survey the local area for wireless networks to associate with, they will detect the SSID broadcast by the Modem Router. If you want to bridge two or more Wireless LANs then only use Enable WDS option . After that Save the settings.

WiFi Security Options

You must configure the Wireless Security options to make your WiFi network confidential. Select the Wireless Security sub menu under Wireless menu. This router supports three type of WiFi security modes. WEP, WPA -PSK, WPA2 –PSK

wifi security

Figure shows the Wireless Security configuration page. By default Wireless security is disabled. You have to select the appropriate mode of WiFi security as per your requirement. WEP is an outdated security standard and vulnerable also. It is advisable to use WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK . Select WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK  option and configure it.

In Auth type you can set Auto, WPA or WPA2 . Three options of Encryptions available (TKIP, AES and Auto). It is better to keep the settings “Auto”. Now coming to the important part. PSK password– This is the password used for authentication. Use a non guessable word or group of words as password.  You have to enter  the same password in your wireless clients (PC, Laptop, Mobile, Tablet etc) for connectivity.

Click the Save button for saving the settings.

Bandwidth Control

Just quoting the comment of a reader on a previous post

Hi Sir,
I have BSNL Broadband connection and a Fujian starnet S4U+ V.1 modem,i share my connection with my room mate,he is connected on Lan4 port mine is Lan1,he is taking a lot of bandwidth,so how can I set QOS? traffic limitation for Lan4 (him)
please help.

You might have also faced the similar problem. Unfortunately normal routers don’t facilitate flexible bandwidth control. Here TP Link TD –W8968 is the winner. Through the Bandwidth control option, you can very easily and flexibly allocate bandwidth for each client machines. Two settings are available under Bandwidth Control Menu- Control Settings and Rules Lists. See the screenshots

bandwidth control

Enable the Bandwidth Control option under Control settings menu to turn ON this feature. Set the Line type to ADSL  and enter the total upstream and downstream bandwidth in kbps. This settings will limit the overall upstream and downstream bandwidth from/to your modem. For example if your maximum downstream speed is  8 Mbs multiply this with 1024 to get the bandwidth in Kbps which will be  8192 Kbps.

Select the Rules List menu to view and configure the bandwidth control (See the above image). Click the Add New button for making a new rule. In the page You can enter the IP range and minimum/maximum upstream/downstream bandwidth. For example if you want to restrict the bandwidth of a particular machine. Get the IP of that machine and enter the IP address in both the fields of IP Range.

Remember: If you enable DHCP , this setting won’t be effective because under DHCP, the clients will be allotted IP addresses dynamically. Hence for effective bandwidth control Disable DHCP .  You can change the DHCP settings through DHCP Server Menu options. Under DHCP settings – Select the option “Disable DHCP Server”. Now you have to configure the network adaptors of client machines. Router will not provide IP to client machines automatically.

You can also use MAC binding option to reserve an IP address exclusively for a particular machine . For that Select the IP and MAC Binding Menu. A page displays the IP and MAC binding table. You can delete, add and edit the entries. See the screenshot .

mac binding

Get the mac address of your PC/Laptop and map with the desired IP Address.

    Is this router available in India yet?

  • Suhas

    Where in Bangalore can we purchase this router and what is the price ????

  • Charles Dsouza


    I am trying to setup a WDS bridge at home. I have a beetel modem that acts as a wifi router too connected to Airtel for broadband. I need to extend the wireless range so, I bought a TP-Link wifi router and I am trying to use the WDS feature on the tplink router. I have done the following on tp-link:

    1. Disabled DHCP.
    2. Ensured it is in same sub-domain ( Beetel modem is in
    3. Enabled WDS, did a survey and selected the wifi from beetel.
    4. entered all authentication info to connect to the beetel wifi.

    The tp-link status says “ASSOC” which as per their manuals is “Trying to associate”. Not sure if it can’t find an IP for it, I think authentication is successful.

    Can you help me with this? Im not sure what i’m missing. I also have read that different manufacturers devices may not be compatible for WDS as IEEE does not define a standard for WDS. Any help will be appreciated.

After installing the new 150Mbps Wireless N ADSL2+ Modem Router, I get access to internet on my desktop. But when I tried to connect my HTC explorer phone it didnot worked. The phone said that, its connected to 150Mbps Wireless N ADSL2+ Modem Router, but in real it can’t access to internet. I can’t internet on my phone. I did everything but fruitless. so help me plz…

    I have tried changing the default ip address of the TD-W8968 from the default to a new ip address of without success. I can successfully ping the TD-W8968 at but cannot connect to the browser-based TD-W8968 management page which should be at Chrome and Firefox return an error of “the server refused the connection” when I try to access

    • Have you assigned the default gateway in your network adaptor to

      • Jeff

        Yes, I have tried automatic DCHP settings and manually assigned ip, mask, gateway,DNS,etc.

        I can get the TD-W8968 “sort-of” working with a new address of by assigning as a “secondary ip address”, and manually assigning ip, mask, gateway,DNS,etc. on all of the network computers. However, then the TD-W8968 DCHP server still allocates addresses in the old default address space and gives an error if I try changing to a address space so I can’t use automatic TD-W8968 DCHP ip assignment. The only way around it might be to establish a separate DCHP server on the network for the address space.

        I notice that when I manually re-start the TD-W8968 it reverts to the default address of, although I can make a secondary ip address of and all other settings “stick” after a manually re-start of the TD-W8968.

    Hi Sujit,

    I have TPLINK ADSL Wifi Router ,Using Reliance broadband ,here i am not able to use it on multiple PC, getting Login page every laptop/PC ,need logout from fist then login second pc please help

    • I think you should contact Reliance broadband customer care for enabling that feature.

      • Rosh K M

        Hi Sujith,
        I tried contacting the Reliance Customer care. They were very rude by saying ‘We cant support or help you in this regard’. please contact your wifi modem provider.’

        I tried contacting TP-Link support. Equally non-responsive area. The customer support toll free number is not picked up at all. Tried sending a mail to customer support of Tp-Link. They replied saying, ‘Please switch on your reliance dongle and try again’ and attach logs, as if i have bought the dongle yesterday. I replied with logs with dongle version etc. After that no reply.

        I tried contacting Ralph, their south sales manager. He replied saying he will direct some engineer and guide me. No one turned up, i sent a reminder SMS, no reply.

        Now i have ended up with a stupid box. If any one wants it please contact me. Its straight out of the box and i have kept it back now.

        This has taught me not to buy any stuff from TP-LINK. Really bad customer support.


        • Sri Krsna

          Hello friends,
          I am also into the same problem, tried to configure D-Link DSL-2750U with the reliance wired broadband but in vain. Recently i found out that a model of TP-Link TD-W8961ND is working for some one.
          According to here:
          But i would like to a bit higher and planning to buy TP-Link TD-8968.
          As mentioned above contacted Reliance Customer Care but no responsible answer on compatible modems.
          So, if anyone succeed with the TD-8968 on reliance wired broadband, please let me know.

          I would like to try with the following Options in the WAN settings:
          VPI: 0
          VCI: 35
          Service Category = UBR Without PCR
          Connection Type : MAC Encapsulation Routing (MER) or Dynamic IP Encapsulation Mode = LLC/SNAP-BRIDGING

          Wan IP settings (Select) – If applicable
          *Obtain IP Address automatically
          *Obtain default gateway automatically
          *Obtain DNS Server automatically

          NAT Settings – If applicable
          *Enable NAT
          *Enable Firewall
          *Enable WAN Service

          If you have MAC Clone or MAC Spoofing Option, enable it and copy the MAC Address of the PC/Laptop/Macbook/Computer connected to it.

          Once the connection works for you over both the LAN and WLAN, log on from one system and try accessing internet simultaneously from other devices.

          Once again, If you succeed in this setup, please let me know.

    I have Low SNR problem in my bsnl broadband conection due to which the modem which I am using TP LINK Wireless N ADSL2+ Modem Router

  • Shahid

    I bought this TP-Link W8968 Adsl2+ router 2 days ago and disappointed with its USB sharing features.
    I have attahced 500GB NTFS single partition external disk and not able to use it. I have created two acounts in the router. I somehow manage to access the share like this:
    \\routers ip address\sharename but not able to create any folder. I checked the router for privileges and all are fine. USB hdd works fine when attached directly to computer.

    I posted for help with images in their forum but no response:

    Please help otherwise my money will be total waste. USB was the main reason to buy this router.

    • 1. Under user accounts (In USB Settings menu) you have to create users who can access the folders.
      2. Select the Storage Sharing under USB settings menu. Enable the server status. To access the whole disc go to Start > Run in windows pc and type \\

    • One thing forgot to mention- You have to uncheck the “Anonymous Access to all volumes” first to create shared folders which is enabled by default Tp link USB share

  • Akul Rastogi

    Many thanks for this How To.

    But are there any special settings for Airtel Broadband. I am using W8968 modem only but as I run the diagnostics test, for both the option it passes all the tests but fails the last one which is something ISP related. Please help. The airtel guys say we dont know the TPLink configurations and further advise me to contact the TPLink guys.

  • pravin

    Hi Sujith,

    I purchased TD-W8968 recently and facing a problem in getting an internet connection using 3G USB dongle.

    My problem is, when i switched on TD-W8968 modem using USB dongle inserted into it, it will work for few minutes (say 2-3 mins) after that connection goes off. In the windows taskbar the internet icon is showing as yellow exclamation mark with “No internet access”. when i looked into the setup of tp-link it was showing 3G is connected properly and the LED light is also glowing in the modem.

    In order to get back the connection you have restart the modem again. Restarting the modem every 2-3 minutes is pathetic.

    Please suggest me where i am wrong….

    I am using D-Link DWM-156 USB dongle with Airtel 3G connection. I am accessing internet using my laptop, iPad & mobile all three at a time wirelessly.

    Your early response will be highly obliged.

    Thanks & Regards

    Hi, I work for an ISP and we would like to trial bandwidth capping on some of our routers, we would have to do this remotely. How do we cap specific IP addresses if we do not know the IP of the devices? Or is there an IP range we could use just to cap on all devices so they share the speed?
    Many Thanks

  • Sunil Mishra


    I have bought a wireless printer AIO Canon Pixma MG3570.
    I tried connecting it to the TP Link W8968 Router via WPS Method and cableless method,however none of them seem to work.I tried binding an IP address to the MAC address of the device and reserved an IP for the printer in DHCP server Address reservation too, still no success.
    I found that though the printer hooks on to the wifi access point ( as visible in the wifi status) it however is not shown on DHCP client list.(the MAC address wasn’t listed even prior to binding and IP address reservation)
    I have failed to realise whats wrong.
    Kindly help to resolve the issue.

    PS: I have V2 with latest firmware update

  • I have BSNL internet plan whose total monthly usage is limited to 1GB. I want to set it as a limit in my router, can I do that? I have TP-LINK TD-W8968

  • anand paul

    mr. sujit, i have one doubt, this TP-Link W8968 modem cum router has 4 LAN Ports, in which 4th port can be interchangable and can be used as WAN. so, now i am using Bsnl Broadband, and in future, if want to change for fibre modem Network, such as You-Broad band or Ticona, Or ClickFibre, that requires WAN port with Rj-45 pin, wheather i need to change the modem or i can continue with this modem, i mean, will it supports for both ADSL & EWAN connections.

    plz, inform me immediately. i was in dailamo.

    and, one more thing, i am connecting the D-link HSPA Dongle for 3G sharing through USB 2.0, but, it will connects, only when PC/ Laptop is even connected with the LAN Port. then only, the wifi sharing of 3G Dongle is possibe.

    can we have any alternative for sharing the 3G by Wifi, only by plugging the Dongle into USB 2.0 without connecting the LAN port into PC/ Laptop.

    plz, anyone can clarify my doubts…!

    your’s Faithfully

    Anand Paul.

    Hi, i am using tp link wd 8968 wireless router. The problem i am facing is, when i access d wifi from a room other the room where the router is located, the connection is frequently dropped. There is no problem in d connection of internet as is works fine on d pc via ethernet cable and if u access d wifi in d same room. I think distance is a matter here cause the connection is getting dropped only if d wifi is accessed from a different room or at a distance. The range shown is full on d connected device but d data connection is dropped. How do i rectify this? Pls help out.

    I was told that this device (TD W8968) can be used on cable/optical fiber ISPs but I have hard time configuring it.
    I tried with quick setup guide but still not able to connect to ISP.
    I have connected the cable to the modem provided by ISP -> output of modem to 4th LAN port on TD W8968 (which is EWAN port) -> 1st LAN port to computer.
    I’m able to connect to wifi also but internet does not work.
    Many say that this device cannot work just as a wifi router as it is built with ADSL modem but the company states it is capable of working only wifi router too.

    Please suggest,

    Thanks in advance.

    • You have to select “Wireless Router Mode” to use this router as a WiFi router only. See the image.

  • Hmm

    Sir ,
    My router is set in Wireless Router Mode . Because of this, I cant see the status of the LAN connection coming into the router . I suspect there being dropouts of internet connection because of snr and line attenuation problems, so i need to know the values so as to tweak it. I dont know the exact setting values like VPI/VCI etc for Idea connection and so i cant set the router in ADSL Mode for getting snr values in the status page . If there is any way to get those values while in Wireless Mode, please tell me . If not, tell me how to find those values in the command line mode of the router.

  • Kunal

    I have TP Link (TD-W8968) router. I have a single landline connected as per the wiring diagram shown in your description. Configuration and setup all done. Internet working great with MTNL plan. However my issue is whenever there is a incoming or outgoing call on the landline, the internet connectivity drops for say about 2 minutes roughly and connects itself after that, which is quite frustrating. I want uninterrupted internet service. Is there anyway i can continue using the internet without a drop even with incoming or outgoing calls on landline ?
    Please do suggest for the same.


  • Kunal

    I have a MTNL (Mumbai) 2mbps internet connection. A single telephone line with a landline number.

    SETUP :
    The wire from the walls/mains is connected to a splitter. Then from the splitter, one wire is connected to the TP-Link WD8968 wireless router (V2, Firmware Version=0.6.0 3.1 v0019.0), and the other to the base of cordless Panasonic wireless telephone. Thats the setup.

    ISSUE :
    Whenever there is an incoming call answered or outgoing call made/hung up, the internet connection drops for roughly about 2-3 minutes and connects itself again. ( I DO NOT have to restart the router or reconnect). I dont know if I am doing any wrong connections as described in my setup. I do not wish my internet to drop during calls.

    Please help if anyone facing similar issues.
