Overview of the Device List tool in Linksys Smart Wi-Fi

The Device List tool of your Linksys cloud account allows you to manage and monitor your devices’ connectivity to the network. It can be found on the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Tools navigation menu. The Device List is displayed as Network Map tool among the latest Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers.

External Storage is displayed as USB Storage among older firmware versions of Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers.
In the Device List page, you will be able to see the devices that are connected to the router whether they are online or offline.

QUICK TIP: Online means the device is turned ON and is currently accessing the network. Offline means the device is turned OFF and is not connected to the router. Devices that were previously connected to the router would still be displayed in the Device List even when they were powered OFF. If you want to update the status of your devices, you will need to clear your browser history.

There are two tabs in the Device List section of your Linksys cloud account: My Network and Guest Network. To see the list of connected devices, click the tab of your preferred network. Clicking on a device name displays details such as its name, manufacturer, model, IP and MAC addresses. Learn more about changing the name or icon for a device.


Switches and other passive devices are not required to be detected in the Device List page.
