tenda configuration

Tenda is a very common and popular wireless network router. If you have bought a Tenda router to establish a wireless network then it is a wonderful choice. But, to get it done you need to configure the Tenda router perfectly.

For a good range and strong connection, Tenda is always recommended as one of the best networking routers after Digisol.

Tenda routers are available in 150Mbps and 300Mbps forms and can handle lower or greater internet bandwidth as per the capacity. Previously, the popular model was Tenda W311R which is an old version and rare now.

Recently, Tenda released new N series routers (i.e. Tenda N3, N4, N300 & N301) which became more popular due to its better hardware formula.

While the Tenda N3 comes with 150Mbps capacity, the Tenda N4 is the latest and having 300Mbps capacity but costs a little more than N3.

The configuration formula for all models of Tenda is almost the same.

But, there are three types of setup for internet connection in routers. Those are DHCP, PPPoE, and Static IP setup. To make this article a complete guide, I have shared the compact details step-by-step for setting up a Tenda router without cd.
