Looking for your Wi-Fi details?

Your TP-Link VR1600v’s Wi-Fi has been pre-configured so you’re ready to connect. The Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password can be found printed on a sticker on the base of the unit.

The unit has 2 Wi-Fi networks which broadcast on different frequencies - 2.4GHz and 5GHz - the password is the same for both.

5GHz can reach faster speeds, but don't penetrate walls well. 2.4GHz travels farther, but often won’t be as fast. We recommend using the 5GHz network when you’re nearby the unit, or the 2.4GHz if you’re further away.

You can also learn How can I change my Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password?
