If you are using a MT-Link wireless router, you are probably one of the satisfied users that enjoys the stable and fast internet connection in every corner of your home. However, if we want to keep this reliability and stability we need to take care of our wireless router security and maintain it properly.
In order to do it, we need to learn the MT-Link router login steps and also learn how to make some changes in the settings that will keep our network secure from unwanted access.
Before We Begin
Before we begin we need to take care of the following:
1. Use a computer or a mobile device (smartphone or tablet)
2. Connect that device to your network
3. Find the default MT-Link router login details.
Once you take care of these things the rest of the MT-Link router login process is pretty simple.
The following MT-Link router login details are the default ones that are designed to make the router access and configuration easier for the everyday user.
Default IP address: 192.168.0.1
Default password: admin
Follow the instructions given below to access your MT-Link router settings.
STEP 1 – Is Your Device Connected?
Although we have mentioned that you need to connect your device to the network, we have to point it out again because it is really important. Only devices connected to the network can access your router settings. So, if your device is not connected, the login process will fail.
So, connect the device you are using to the wireless network or connect it to the router using an Ethernet cable and you are good to go.
STEP 2 – Start The Web Browser
We access the router admin dashboard from a web browser. The admin dashboard or the web-based utility is designed to help us manage the router settings in a very user-friendly way. All the settings are carefully categorized and finding the ones we need doesn’t take long.
The MT-Link default IP is 192.168.0.1 and you need to type it into the browser’s URL bar. Just type the IP and press Go or Enter on the keyboard. If you see the MT-Link router login page, you have succeeded.
However, if you see a blank page or an error message or something else, there is a problem. In that case, check whether the device is still connected, whether you have typed the IP correctly, whether 192.168.0.1 is the actual router IP.
When the MT-Link router login page appears, you should enter the admin password there. We have already said that the default admin password is admin. Type it in the required field and press the Login button.
You should see the MT-Link router admin dashboard now. In case the password doesn’t work, retype it or check the sticker on the router to see if you have used the correct one.
After you access the MT-Link router admin dashboard you will be able to configure the router settings easily. We normally recommend changing the admin password and the WiFi settings, but there are some other settings you can change to secure your network.
The admin password allows us to access the router settings. Actually, all the people connected to the network can access the admin dashboard if they know the admin password. The problem is that the default admin password can be found in a minute if you search for it online. Since we want to avoid this, it is necessary to change the admin password.
1. Login to your router as described.
2. Click on Administration in the menu on the left.
3. Enter the current admin password in the Old Password field.
4. Enter the new password in the New Password and Confirm Password fields.
5. Click OK to save the changes.
It is possible that you will be logged out of the admin dashboard when you save the new admin password. If that happens, login again using the new admin password. At this point it is important to make sure to write the new admin password somewhere and keep it safe.
Since we are the owners of our network it is normal that we want to make it more personal. Changing the network name is what we need to do and we can set up a new cool or funny name for our network.
The WiFi password on the other hand, needs to be strong and unique. It keeps unwanted visitors away from our wireless network and that’s why we have to set up a strong WiFi password and change it from time to time.
1. Access the MT-Link router settings.
2. In the menu on the left click on Wireless Settings.
3. In the WiFi Name and Password section complete the following fields:
WiFi Name – enter the new wireless network name there.
Security Mode – WPA/WPA2-PSK Mixed
WiFi Password – enter the new wireless password there
WPS – make sure it is set to Disabled if you are not using it.
4. Click OK to save the changes.
If you have other devices that depend on your wireless network like TVs, wireless printers, smartphones and similar, you will have to connect them again.

You have to agree that the MT-Link router login steps are pretty easy to follow. If you have access to the network and you have the correct admin login details, you should be able to login in less than a minute.
However, when it comes to changing some of the router settings it is recommended to create a backup of the router settings before you start changing anything. It will be easier to restore the settings in case something goes wrong.
