1. Install The”TP-Link Deco” App on Android or iPhone

Go to your Google Play or the Apple App Store and search for “TP-Link Deco” and just hit install and open.

    • (I made a new network first then changed it back after putting the modem in bridge mode – dunno if it matter but seemed safer)
  • Add more deco’s one by one
    • I bought the 3-pack so I just added two more.
    • My house isn’t that big I’d probably only need two but I wanna try bringing the third one outside whenever i want to bbq

If you don’t want to have multiple networks put your modem in bridge mode

Then Setup Your Deco M9 with The Same Wifi Credentials


How To Put Rogers Modem in Bridge Mode

1. On a Web Browser go to 10.0.0.1
2. Sign In To Your Network Gateway

If you’ve never accessed this before Rogers has default credentials setup as:

  • admin: admin
  • password: password

lol it’s not super secure so I’d recommend changing up the stuff to make sure you have a little bit more security. Also make sure you right this stuff down so you don’t lock yourself up.

3. Enable “Bridge” Mode
  • Go to Gateway
  • Enable “Bridge”

Make Sure Everything Connects on the Deco App

Setup Security Measures

TP-Link added some antivirus features so just toggle all or whatever you think is necessary for your network.

  • Malicious Content Filter
    • Block malicious websites that are listed in Trend Micro’s database to ensure you can surf the net in safety
  • Intrusion Prevention System
    • Protects your home network and applications against external attacks and eliminates vulnerabilities
  • Infected Device Quarantine
    • Prevents infected devices from sending sensitive information or security threats to clients outside your network
