I guess first of all you take the manual/User Guide out the box and read it, if you don't have one you can get the User Guide off the TP-Link website here. It will tell you exactly what you need to do to set it up.

My guess is that it will probably create its own wireless hotspot to begin with which you can connect to (settings usually on the label on the underside of the unit) and the manual will tell you the IP address you need to type in to configure it. TP-Link also provide a simulator for that model so you can mess around with all the settings first before you do it for real on your own unit.
