Getting to know the Linksys app

The Linksys app allows you to monitor and manage your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers and Linksys Velop.  With the Linksys app, you can access your home network anywhere, anytime.  You can also set up Wi-Fi access for guests or restrict your kids from accessing social networking sites when they should be doing homework.  You can even choose which device gets priority bandwidth to reduce lag times and buffering on your network.  You no longer have to be tethered to your desk at home to manage your home network.  

The Dashboard is the landing page of the Linksys app.  It displays how many devices are connected to the network and whether the router is connected to the internet or not.
