How to Set Up a Tenda Access Point as a Repeater

This guide will show you how to setup the Tenda Access Point as a repeater. Your existing router will need to be configured also to allow the access point to connect to it. If the existing router is a Tenda-brand router, please consult the Tenda documentation on how to set the Tenda router as a repeater. Otherwise, it is necessary to use the specific manufacturer instructions for any other brand of router.

  1. Connect the Tenda Access Point to your existing router using an Ethernet cable, then connect it to the LAN port on the router (yellow port if using the Tenda router).
  2. Once connected to the router, open your web browser and type in "". This will bring up the setup page for the Access Point.

  3. Click on Wireless Settings. This shows the options for which mode is to be used. Select AP Repeater.
  4. Next, change the SSID or you can leave it at the default setting. If you're using it as a repeater, it's best to change it, so both devices won't have the same name.
