Nova Broadband is now a proud member of the Digiweb Group / I need to re-program a TP-Link wireless router supplied by Nova

If you need to setup a TP-Link router, you can do so by following these steps:

1) Disable wifi on your computer if possible

2) Connect a network cable between your computer and any of the yellow LAN ports on the back of the TP-Link router. Wait 30 seconds

3) Open your web browser (, Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc.) and type the following into the address bar at the top:

192.168.1.1

and hit enter. (If that doesn’t work, try 192.168.0.1)

4) Enter a username “admin” and password “admin”. You should now see the TP-Link setup screen.

5) In the main menu, select “Quick Setup” then click “Next”.

6) If you have a Nova antenna on your house/apartment, select Dynamic IP, then click Next.
If you have a Nova cable connection (an apartment with no antenna), select PPPoE, then click Next, then enter a username and password supplied by us (call 021 2429560), then click Next.

7) Select Wireless Security type WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK and enter a password you will remember. Click Next, then Finish.

8) Disconnect the cable from the router and turn on your wifi. When the network is found, connect and enter the password you supplied.

A small number of users may have a special type of connection called Static IP. If this is the case (you would have requested it), call us on 021 2429560 for the IP settings for your router.
