TP-Link, Tenda, TeleWell use 192.168.0.254 as their router’s default IP address. The extenders of these three network manufacturing organizations also use this IP address for the configuration and synchronization process.
There are also some alternatives to this IP address. And, they are 192.168.1.1, 192.168.0.1, 192.168.2.1 and many more. You need to make use of 192.168.0.254 to log in to your router.

The wireless working mode, network mode must be set to default. You can activate the SSID broadcast so that everyone can see the Wi-Fi router name. Lastly, the AP isolation, channel bandwidth, APSD cable should be in default mode.
