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:

Step 1:
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.

Step 2:
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.  For more information on how to do this, click here.

Step 3:
Once the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Account home page appears, click the Wireless Tool on the left navigation pane under Router Settings.

 

Step 4:
On the Wireless page, click the SimpleTap tab then, use the toggle button to enable (ON) or disable (OFF) this connection feature.

 

Step 5:
Click  to save your settings and go back to the home page.

You may now use the SimpleTap™ connection feature to connect your NFC smartphone to the Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers (EA6300, EA6400, EA6500 and EA6700).  Click on the link below for instructions on how to connect a smartphone using the SimpleTap™ card:
