Verify you are in the same network as your router. Type in IPCONFIG /ALL in a CMD Prompt and see if the IP of your computer comes up as 192.168.1.xx (where xx is not equal 1).

Then please ensure you are connecting via a ethernet cable to your router as WLAN is normaly disabled after resetting.

I have a TP-Link wireless access point, so this might apply too...

When trying to initially configure it, the manual told me to directly plug my PC into the access point's ethernet port with a regular network cable, and then set my PC to a specific IP address (rather than a random 192.168.1.x address).

It was a very subtle point - that my machine needed a specific IP address - that I missed because I thought "Oh it's a network device, the sticker says the default is blah blah done this before on similar equipment".

IOW RTFM really carefully, it will explain exactly what to do ;-)

If it's still not working, try basic things like trying to ping the router and telling us any errors that appear.

Might be a good idea to download and use the Easy Setup Assistant from TP-Link.

Before you run the utility, make sure your computer is set to obtain the IP address automatically. Let the router assign the address to the computer so it can communicate properly. Then run the utility.

Based on your description, it sounds like your computer settings are causing the issue.

First, set your TCP and DNS settings to automatic.

Second, if you are using wireless, go to your network control panel, manage your wireless networks and remove any networks you had previously created using this router.

Re-connect to the router network which should be TP-Link at this point if you are wireless.

If you can not get a connection wirelessly or via ethernet, try a different computer. You stated that you reset your router, so if 2 computers can not access, it`s time to get a new router (always try resetting again hold 20 seconds and release)

If the second computer does work, you have network or firewall issues you need to sort out.

This is what I did and resolved my problem:

1. Disable the WiFi of the router my pressing the back button (I have td-w8961nd), for yours check your manual for how to disable it.
2. Restart your modem/router.
3. Connect to your PC to modem/router using the LAN cable.
4. Enter in your browser and you are done.

N.B after enabling the WiFi you have to restart your modem to take effect, but you will no longer able to login again

I hope this will work for you
