Troubleshooting with Velop Simple Setup in the web interface

User-added image

If you are having issues setting up the Velop system through the Linksys app, you can use the Velop’s local Linksys Smart Wi-Fi web interface to configure your node. 

Before you begin:
  • Make sure the node is in factory defaults.  If not, reset the node to clear any settings that may interfere with the setup.  Hold the reset button for 6 to 10 seconds.
  • You should be connected to the default Wi-Fi of your Velop or plug an ethernet cable from your node to your computer.
IMPORTANT:  This feature is available in firmware version 1.1.1.177892 or above.

Step 9:
Once Step 8 is completed, your primary node should now be configured.  To add secondary nodes, place them near the primary node.  Turn ON the other nodes and wait until the light on each node turns solid purple before you click the Add Wireless Child Nodes button. 

NOTE:  If you set up wired nodes, connect an ethernet cable from your secondary node to the primary node; wait until your node's light turns solid purple and then click on Add Wired Child Nodes.

NOTE:  You will not see any changes in the web interface once you click on either of the buttons.  The buttons for adding nodes will be grayed out once clicked, indicating that it is sending the configuration settings to the other nodes.  Focus on the light indicator of the secondary nodes instead.  The secondary nodes will start to communicate with the primary node and then they will be added to the network.  Once all secondary nodes have a solid blue light, you can then place them in other locations.
 
Step 10: 
If you are done adding nodes, click on Done Adding Child Nodes then click Apply or Ok.
 
You have now successfully configured the internet connection of your Velop network.
