Arbeitsgemeinschaft Dresdner Studentennetz


If you want to use multiple devices or just have WiFi, you have to get a Router. The followign table lists a few devices which have successfully worked in our network, although this list may not be complete.

If all you want is a cheap, working solution, we recommend the TP-LINK WR841 or WR940.

Warning: The TP-Link setup domains "tplinklogin dot net" and "tplinkextender dot net" are not correct anymore and may distribute malware.

Security advice

We recommend to always change the default passwords for the WiFi and admin interface. For several vendors there are easy ways to determine the default passwords from the network's name and/or MAC-address.
