In case both Wi-Fi network names are the same (e.g. MyHome on the router and MyHome on the powerline extender too), you may access the management page by using the utility. Please go to the www.tp-link.com/support page and download the utility appropriate for your computer. Start the utility and choose the model to be congured and click "Connect".
TP-LINK PLC Utility allows you to view and manage TP-LINK powerline communication devices, including powerline adapters and powerline extenders. With this utility, you can change the settings for each powerline device in the current network, redirect to the web management interface of a device for more settings, or remove a remote device from the current network.
Actually the kits being sold don't have a cd. I was able to download the utility from TP-Link based on the model (WPA 4220 Extender version 1 in my case). Once I installed that utility on my pc it came up with the installed plc network and the wifi extenders had a "website" popout that brought up the browser admin admin configuration tool. At that point I could note the ip address for each in my browser. In my case they were and which then worked directly without the TP-Link utility.
I disabled WiFi for on the PLC, so to access it by Ethernet cable, download the Utility for Windows or Mac. Unfortunately the Utility crashed in my Mac, but I found a beta version here: -link.com/en/home/forum/topic/161045
Once you download your new driver, then you need to install it. To install a driver in Windows, you will need to use a built-in utility called Device Manager. It allows you to see all of the devices recognized by your system, and the drivers associated with them.
If you are having trouble installing your driver, you should use the Driver Update Utility for TP-LINK. It is a software utility that automatically finds, downloads and installs the right driver for your system. You can even backup your drivers before making any changes, and revert back in case there were any problems. You can safely update all of your drivers in just a few clicks. Once you download and run the utility, it will scan for out-of-date or missing drivers: 2b1af7f3a8
