Hello,

I have used this program before on previous models of TPLink routers and have had no issues.  I had to recently buy a new router and when I  try and view current settings and/or update the router I keep getting failure messages.  I think the issues is that it is not logging into the router using the password (it is listing the correct password).  The current router does not seem to let the computer to save the password.  I end up doing it manually.

Thank you for any help.

Looks like they added a login page for that model in a firmware update, as you can see the script doesnt have any commands for that.

So all I need to do is add those commands in, before I do lets make sure the rest of the script works.

Under the advanced menu in the program enable debug mode. This will let you click a button to continue to each step. So once at the log in screen go ahead and log in for the program and then continue with the script and see if the rest of the script finishes properly. :wink:

Can you post a screen shot so I can see what page is loaded when it is failing, also go to the port forwarding page or virtual servers page and right click on it and hit copy link location, that way I can see if any other models use the same pages.

Shane,

Please find the requested information:

In the screenshot I had to log in first while in the debug mode

The Link Location:

http://192.168.1.1/

The modem tells to use http://tplinkmodem.net/ (it seems to be a bit slower than the numbered link)

Hope this helps
