How to enable and configure DDNS on a TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router

Most ISPs do not use static IP addresses for their customers. Therefore, you cannot remotely log into your router and your network services using the same IP address every day. To work around this issue, you can use DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name System) to bind a TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router that has a floating IP address to a static domain name. Here’s how to do it for free.

How to Access Dynamic DNS Settings on a TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 Router
You can only enable dynamic DNS on your TP-Link router from the router firmware, not from the Tether app. So open a web browser on your computer and go to tplinkwifi.net or . Then enter the administrator password of your TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router and click LOGIN.

Log in to your TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router.

TIP: If the TP-link firmware is not in the language you need, here is how to change the language on your TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router.

First you see a network map and some basic settings. Dynamic DNS settings can be found by tapping or tapping Advanced. In the left column, select “Network” and then “Dynamic DNS”. Next, you should see the DDNS settings on the right, as in the screenshot below.

Go to Advanced > Network > Dynamic DNS.

IMPORTANT: If you plan to use TP-Link’s free DDNS service, you will see a warning that you must first log in with your TP-Link ID.

Click or tap the Service Provider dropdown on the right. You can use NO-IP and DynDNS services with TP-Link by selecting a service provider from the list and then providing the required connection details.

Select a DDNS Service Provider

In this guide, we assume that you want to use TP-Link’s free DDNS service. To do this, select TP-Link from the “Service Provider” drop-down list, and then click or tap “Register”.

Click or tap Register

Enter the domain name you want to use and click Save. If it is not available, you will receive an error message informing you that the domain name has already been registered. Then you need to enter another one.

Enter a domain name for DDNS

If everything went well, you will see the domain name, the date of its registration and the status of the domain.

You have finished setting up DDNS on your TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router. You can now use this domain for all kinds of tasks, including setting up and using the VPN server features on your router.

TIP: You can register multiple domains with TP-Link DDNS service, but only one can be used at a time.

How to disable DDNS on TP-Link router

If you don’t want to use DDNS anymore, log into your router’s firmware and go to “Advanced -> Network -> Dynamic DNS”. On the right, find the list of domain names, click or tap Unbind, and then click the Remove button for the DDNS service you don’t want to use.

Disable and then delete your DDNS domain

After each click, you will see a short message from your TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router confirming that the operation was successful.

How do you use DDNS on your TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router?

Setting up dynamic DNS is useful when you want to access services within your network from anywhere on the Internet. For example, if you are going to turn your TP-Link router into a VPN server and connect to your home network, you need to have DDNS up and running. The same is true if you have a NAS configured as an FTP or cloud server that you want to access from anywhere. Before closing this guide, please let us know if you have successfully activated DDNS on your TP-Link Wi-Fi 6 router and how you plan to use this service. Comment below and let us know.
