Setting a Static WAN IP address on the TP-Link and DD-WRT routers

By Sam



While these routers are no longer sold, some customers may still have this equipment. This guide is meant for those older routers that need a Static WAN IP Address.

To begin setting a static WAN IP Address, make sure the client is connected to the router. This can either be by a wireless connection through the Access Point (assuming it is online and broadcasting) or through a direct ethernet connection to one of the TP-Link or DD-WRT Router’s yellow LAN ports.

  1. Open a Web Browser and type the router’s IP address into the Address Bar:
  2. Once the Router page comes up, click the Setup tab in the upper left hand side of the page:
  3. When prompted for a User Name and Password  enter: 
    Name:   admin
    Password:  revelrocks 
  4. Near the top of the page under WAN Setup/Wan Connection Type:
    • Change the Connection Type using the drop-down from Automatic Configuration - DHCP  to Static IP:
    • Enter the WAN IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway information as provided by your ISP:
    • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save
    • Wait a few moments for the screen to reload and then click Apply Settings:
