- Overview of the Network Administration feature
Use the Network Administration screen to change the Velop admin password and hint, turn ON automatic firmware updates, and check various identifiers (model number, serial number, and IP details) for all nodes.
|List of nodes||A list of nodes appears by the location name you selected during setup. To view individual information about each node or to change the name, tap on a node.
|Parent Node||The parent node is the first node on the list. This is the node connected to your entire Velop network.
|Child Node||All other nodes are considered child nodes. A child node will display the same information as the parent node except for the WAN IP address.|
At the bottom, it will display which parent node your child node is connected to.
|Change Velop Password and Hint||Tap to change your Velop’s admin password and hint.|
NOTE: A secure password has been automatically created during setup. It is recommended that you change your admin password. In the event you are asked for a recovery key, it is located on the product label at the bottom or at the back of your node (depending on the model).
|Automatic Firmware Update||By default, automatic firmware update is turned ON.|
|Time Zone||Displays the current time zone set on Velop. Tap to change the time zone if needed.|
|Diagnostic Information||Turned ON by default and contributes to future improvements.|
|Manually report a specific Issue||If you would like to provide feedback on a specific issue, feel free to report it. |
NOTE: The feedback is only a one-way report.
|IP Details||This section displays a summary of your Velop IP Address details. The following is read only information. If you need to make changes, go to Advanced Settings > Internet Settings or Local Network Settings. |
|Restart Velop||Tap to restart your entire Velop network.|
