I use TP-Link router from Unifi. At home, I use an app from TP-Link called "Tether" to access and make changes to the router since  my phone is connected to the house wifi.

How do I control my router if I am outside? Primarily, I need it to cut Internet access to selected gadgets the kids are using.

(I humbly request to use simpler, less technical language to explain).

Many thanks.

Open the web browser and in the address bar type in: or or tplinklogin.net
Then press Enter.

The LAN IP is vary by model. Please find it on the bottom label of the product.

Step 2
Type the username and password in the login page. They are both admin by default.

Step 3
Click Security->Remote Management on the left side.

Step 4
With the default setting (Port 80 and IP address, the Remote Management function is disabled.
To enable this function, please change the Remote Management IP address from to a specific authorized remote IP address.

You can also change the Web Management port to another one if necessary, this is also a security enhancement.

Step 5
Click Save to save the settings.
To access the Router, you should enter your Router's WAN IP address into your browser's address (in IE) or location (in Netscape) box and the custom port number. For example, if your Router's WAN address is and you use port number 8080, enter in your browser. You will be asked for the Router's password. After successfully entering the password, you will be able to access the Router's web-based utility.

1. Type a specific Public IP address for the Remote Management IP Address means that you can only connect to this device remotely from a computer which is using this specific IP address.

2. Type Remote Management IP Address means that you cannot connect to this device remotely.

3. Type Remote Management IP Address means that you can connect to the router remotely from anywhere via Internet, this is not recommended and please use it with caution.

4. We suggest changing the default log in Username and Password if the Remote Management feature is enabled, especially if you typed as the Remote Management IP address.
