Setting up the Velop system using an Android device
This article will teach you how to set up a Velop system on your Android™ mobile device.
1. Working internet connection via a modem or modem router (gateway)
2. An Android mobile device with the latest version of the Linksys app
Disconnect the modem from the power outlet and remove your existing router.
Connect the modem to the internet port on the node.
Connect the modem and the node to the power outlet. Wait for the light on the node to turn solid purple.
Once the light on the node is solid purple, open the Linksys app and tap on Launch setup.
Turn on Bluetooth® if prompted. Otherwise, tap I would rather set up without Bluetooth.
If you get the following prompt, select an option to allow location access to continue.
Read the Terms and Conditions then tap Agree.
You will be prompted to select what type of device you are setting up. Tap on the option for VELOP.
Plug in your node then tap It's Plugged In.
Position your node accordingly then tap Next.
On the next screen, tap It's In the Open.
Follow the on-screen instructions then tap It's Connected.
Check if the light on your node is blinking purple.
- Tap Yes, it's Blinking Purple to continue setup.
- Tap No, It's Not Blinking Purple to scan for another node. If you have more than one node turned ON, you may need to turn OFF the nodes you currently are not setting up.
The app will check for internet connection.
Create a Linksys server account or click Log in here to enter your existing account credentials.
Wait for the node to be linked to your account.
Personalize your WiFi by entering your preferred settings and tap Next.
Wait as the app configures your network.
Select a location for the node then tap Next.
NOTE: If you want to customize your node's name, tap Name it something else and enter your preferred name.
Success! You have set up the node. Tap Next.
If you need to add another node, tap on Add a Node. Otherwise, tap That's It for Now. You can always add more nodes later.
Updates for the node will automatically happen overnight. The node can also report crashes to Linksys to make your WiFi better. Tap on Next to continue.
Your WiFi should now be ready! Tap Go to Dashboard to see the status of your connection and devices.
