QSS is the official software from TP-Link for the initial configuration of the router. It allows you to easily connect to your network, set up a Wi-Fi hotspot, and enable Quick Security Setup.
When you run the program for the first time, make sure you connect the router to your computer using an Ethernet cable. Unfortunately, you cannot set up the router by any other method. So, let's assume that the router was connected and successfully recognized by the program. Of course, the first thing it will require is the name and password of the new access point. It will also be possible to enable the QSS function (yes, its name is identical to the name of the program itself). This function allows you to connect new devices to Wi-Fi without entering a password from the access point. Simply press the special button on the router and it will automatically confirm the connection attempt. After the initial setup, you can enable or disable Quick Security Setup from the router's standard web interface (available at 192.168.1.1).
We have already noted that QSS is a branded program from TP-Link. Therefore, it will only work with the routers of this manufacturer. And only with relatively new models, equipped with the physical key Quick Security Setup. In fact, the main purpose of the program is to install the driver for the correct operation of this very key.
In general, if you have a TP-Link router, then installing QSS is a must for you.
- Initial configuration of the router, assigning a name and password to the Wi-Fi hotspot
- Install a driver to use the QSS function (if your router supports QSS);
