Overview of the Network Map Tool on your Linksys EA9200 and EA9500

The Network Map Tool is a feature that is also available on the latest Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers, EA9200 and EA9500.  This Tool allows you to see the devices that are connected to the router whether they are online or offline.  Also, you have the option to view devices either by Connection Type or Device Type.
QUICK TIP:  Online means the device is turned ON and is currently connected to the network.  Offline means the device is turned OFF and is not connected to the network.  Devices that were previously connected to the router would still be displayed in the Network Map 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 (2) tabs in the Network Map section of your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Account:  My Network and Guest Network.
By clicking on the Filter map drop-down menu, you can view the devices by group.  Listed below are the categories available.
