The apartments have 100 Mb/s connection. It costs 25kr/month and is paid through the rent. You can connect to the internet via an Ethernet cable. If you want Wi-Fi, you will have to use your own Wi-Fi router. The internet is always available.
To set up your own router, you need a router and an Ethernet cable. We recommend using a router that supports Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) or higher, and is capable of 1000 Mbit (1 Gbit). One such router is the TP-Link Archer C6, which this guide will focus on.
Begin with connecting the router to the outlet. You connect the router to the internet using the Ethernet cable between the blue port labeled
internet, and the green port in the wall.
- If you want to set up your internet by cable, connect your device with another Ethernet cable in one of the ports on the router labeled
- If instead the setup is done wireless, connect to the Wi-Fi manually using the
Passwordprinted on the router, usually on the bottom.
At this point you may be able to use your internet connection, since some routers are preconfigured to have both Ethernet and Wi-Fi working when plugged in. The Archer C6 is not, therefore it needs to be configured by accessing the router through a web browser.
To start configuring the router, type the routers address in a web browser (such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge, etc.). For our router, the TP-Link, it is tplinkwifi.net. Some addresses will be numbers with dots in between, which should be entered without anything else, for example
249.152.93.197. From here you will find a log-in page to your routers’ configuration page, where this router requires the same credentials as you previously logged in with and proceed from there. If you encounter any problems, either with this router or any other, be sure to find a guide that suits your situation.
After you have set your routers settings to your liking, there should now be a Wi-Fi Access Point that your devices can use. Additional settings such as giving the Wi-Fi connection a unique name and password, can be configured using the routers’ configuration page.
If your internet stops working, here are some steps, you can follow.
- See if your router is plugged in correctly.
- Restart your router
- Make sure your Ethernet cable is plugged in correctly and that the Ethernet cable is working properly
- Make sure there is not any dirt or the like in the wall port
- If your router is connected to the green outlet try switching to the red and vice versa
