How to configure the APN on your TP-Link Archer MR600

The TP-Link Archer MR600 LTE device is an approved CAT6 device for MTN LTE SIM cards.

An Access Point Name (APN) allows the device’s network to connect to the internet. With the APN settings in place, your device establishes a connection to a carrier’s gateway. Our APN is what determines that you are using Afrihost Data, and not data directly from MTN.

What is an APN? 

If you would like to learn more about an Access Point Name, please read our Help Centre article for more information.

Follow the steps below to set up the APN settings on your TP-Link Archer MR600 LTE device:
  • Connect to your LTE router via LAN cable or WiFi.
  • Open your internet browser.
  • Navigate to the device's IP address, 192.168.0.1, or tplinkmodem.net, and hit enter to search.
  • Log into the router.
