Alternative MethodUsing specific links depending on the status of the node

The following are specific links you can use depending on the status of the node:

A.  If the node has been configured already, use "http://192.168.1.1/fwupdate.html"
B.  If the node is on factory defaults, use "http://192.168.1.1:52000/fwupdate.html"

NOTE:  The default IP address of a node is 192.168.1.1.  If your node's IP address is different, use that instead.


Step 1:

Download the firmware file to your computer.  To download the firmware, choose your product below.
 

Step 2:
Determine your node’s IP address using the Linksys app.  To do this, go to the Velop Dashboard > Menu > Velop Administration.  Then, select your node and look for its IP address.
 
Step 3:
Make sure your node is connected to the internet.
 
Step 4:
Open a web browser and enter the appropriate link based on the current status of your node. 
 
A.  If the node has already been configured, use "http://192.168.1.1/fwupdate.html"

Click Choose File and select the firmware you downloaded then click Update.  The status bar will show a percentage progress.
 
Step 7:
Wait until you receive the "result": "OK" message on the browser.  The node will reboot within a few seconds.  Wait until you see the solid blue light again, or a solid purple if the node is on factory defaults which means the node is ready and back online.  To learn more about the light behavior of your Velop, click here.
