What if you bought a Wi-Fi router in order to surf the Internet from your mobile device, but you don’t have a computer or laptop to configure it? At the same time, any instruction begins with the fact that you need to do this in Windows and click this, start the browser, and so on.
In fact, the router can be easily configured from an Android tablet and iPad or phone – also on Android or Apple iPhone. However, this can be done from any other device that has a screen, the ability to connect via Wi-Fi and a browser. At the same time, there will be no particular differences when configuring the router from a mobile device, and I will describe all the nuances that are worth arming in this article.
How to set up a Wi-Fi router if there is only a tablet or phone
On the Internet you will find many detailed guides on how to configure different models of wireless routers for different Internet providers. For example, on my site, in the section Setting up the router.
Find the instruction that suits you, connect the provider’s cable to the router and plug it into a power outlet, then turn on Wi-Fi on your mobile device and go to the list of available wireless networks.
In the list you will see an open network with a name corresponding to the brand of your router – D-Link, ASUS, TP-Link, Zyxel or another. Connect to it, a password is not required (and if necessary, reset the router to the factory settings, for this they have a Reset button that needs to be kept in the region of 30 seconds).
Follow all the steps to configure the Internet connection of the provider, as described in the instructions (which you found earlier), that is, launch a browser on your tablet or phone, go to the address 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1, enter the login and password, configure the WAN connection with the right type: L2TP for Beeline, PPPoE for Rostelecom, Dom.ru and some others.
Save the connection settings, but do not configure the Wi-Fi SSID and password for Wi-Fi yet. If you entered all the settings correctly, then after a short period of time, the router will establish a connection to the Internet, and you can open a website on your device or view mail without resorting to a mobile connection.
