TP-Link OneMesh is an innovative feature that allows TP-Link wireless routers and range extenders to work together to form a unified Wi-Fi network, similar to a mesh Wi-Fi system. While range extenders and wireless routers could do this in the past, one mesh is a unique integration for TP-Link devices that allows users to tp link wifi extender setup, with fewer steps involved. If you have a TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router and range extender, here's how to set them up using OneMesh.
What to do before setting up OneMesh on a TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router and extender
Before setting up your TP-Link OneMesh extender, you must have a TP-Link router that is managing your network. To help you, here is our guide on 2 ways to configure your TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router.
Initially, it is best to place the extender somewhere close to the router so that the two of you can easily "see each other" and finish the installation smoothly. Then you can change the location of the extender to cover the area where your Wi-Fi is weak or dead.
If you want to manage both your TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 extender and your wireless router from anywhere on the internet, read How to create and add a TP-Link ID to your TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router.
Connect your TP-Link OneMesh Wi-Fi 6 extender to the router using WPS
We believe this method is the fastest and easiest for everyone, and TP-Link should promote it more. It only takes a minute and involves pressing just two buttons:
First, make sure your TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router is turned on. Next, plug in the TP-Link OneMesh extender somewhere near the router. Wait for the range extender to start, until the power LED turns on. On the back of the TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router, press the WPS button. Then immediately go to the extender and press the WPS button as well.
Wait a minute and you will see the Wi-Fi signal LEDs on the extender turn solid. When that happens, the TP-Link OneMesh range extender is configured. You have automatically cloned all your settings from your TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router. This is the beauty of the OneMesh concept, and everyone appreciates such a quick setup.
How to setup your TP-Link OneMesh range extender from a web browser
On a laptop or tablet, connect to the Wi-Fi emitted by the TP-Link OneMesh extender. The Wi-Fi is called TP-Link_Extender, as in the screenshot below, and it has no password.
Open your favorite browser and go to tplinkrepeater.net or 192.168.0.254. The extender setup wizard loads and first prompts you to set a password to manage the device. Write it down, confirm it and press Start.
The TP-Link OneMesh Range Extender searches for the Wi-Fi emitted by your TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router and first lists what it finds in the 2.4 GHz band. Next, click or tap on the name of your wireless network, enter your password, and press Next.
Then do the same for the 5 GHz band.
The TP-Link Range Extender asks you to confirm your settings and applies them in about a minute.
When everything is ready, you will be informed that the mesh network has been created. Hit Finish and you will see a summary of your settings, as in the screenshot below.
Close your web browser and start using the OneMesh network managed by your TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router and extender.
