Changing the Wi-Fi Settings of your router using the Linksys app

Securing your WiFi is crucial, and the Linksys app simplifies changing your settings for added convenience.

When modifying your Wi-Fi Settings, your devices will briefly disconnect from the router. Once the changes are made, you'll need to reconnect your devices using the updated settings.

The steps and images provided below may differ slightly depending on the operating system of your mobile device.

1. Connect your mobile device to your router's WiFi then open the Linksys app.

2. For iOS, tap Manage Your Wi-Fi. For Android, tap Log in.

3. You will receive a prompt to log in using your Linksys cloud account. Simply input the required credentials and tap on Log in.

Alternatively, you have the option to log in using Router Password on iOS or Use Router Password on Android.
4. Tap the menu icon in the upper-left corner of the dashboard.

5. Tap Wi-Fi Settings.
6. Tap the field you want to change then tap Save once done. Wait for the settings to be saved successfully then reconnect all wireless devices, if necessary.

Options will vary by model.


The Advanced Wi-Fi Settings section on each network band also allows you to configure other settings such as Security Type, Wi-Fi Mode, Channel Finder, and Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS). Each time you make changes, ensure to tap Save. Otherwise, tap on Cancel to discontinue the changes. 

Some devices don't support DFS. They will need to use your 2.4 GHz radio instead of the 5 GHz radio. Make sure your devices support DFS and have the latest updates.


For Wi-Fi® 6E Linksys routers, you will see Multiple selection as the only option for Security Type. You can make changes through the page for troubleshooting purposes.


You should now have successfully changed your router's Wi-Fi Settings using the Linksys app.
