Enabling or disabling the SimpleTap™ feature on your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Account
SimpleTap™ connection is one of the new features on your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Account that is bundled with the latest Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers (EA6300, EA6400, EA6500 and EA6700). This is one of the easiest ways to connect your Near Field Communication (NFC) compatible smartphone to the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router’s 2.4 GHz wireless network.
NOTE: NFC is not compatible with the iPhone®. To learn more about the SimpleTap™ feature, click here.
Before you can use this connection feature, you need to enable it first. To do so, follow these instructions:
Access your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Account. To do this, launch a web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer) and enter your router’s IP address or "myrouter.local" in the Address bar then press [Enter].
NOTE: The router’s default IP address is 192.168.1.1. If it doesn’t work or if the IP address has been changed, check your Linksys router's IP address. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: To remotely access your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Account, enter https://www.linksyssmartwifi.com on your web browser instead of the router’s IP address.
Log in using your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Account. Enter your Email Address and Password then click Log in.
NOTE: If you still haven’t created, activated or associated an account to your router, click here for instructions. For local access to your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Account (router is not connected to the Internet), enter your Router Password instead of your login details.
