- How to use the Channel Finder feature of your Velop system
Wi-Fi signals broadcast on multiple channels. The more networks that use the same channel, the worse the performance will be for each of them. Channel Finder selects the channel with the least amount of traffic for each node in your Velop system.
Log in to the Velop dashboard. For instructions when using an Android™ device, click here. For iOS, click here.
Tap on the menu icon at the upper-left side of the screen.
Tap Wi-Fi Settings.
Tap Advanced Wi-Fi Settings.
Tap Channel Finder.
Tap Scan Channels.
Your Velop system will turn OFF the Wi-Fi to scan channels and all devices will be disconnected temporarily. If it finds better channels, Channel Finder will automatically make the changes for you.
If you are already using the best channels, Channel Finder will not make any changes. Tap Done.
If there are any changes, tap Technical details to view the new channels.
The previous channels are on the left and if any channels were changed they will be displayed on the right side with an arrow. In the example below, only the channel of the first 2.4 GHz band for Living Room was changed. The channel was changed from 11 to 5.
