How to log in to the Linksys Intelligent Mesh's dashboard while on Bridge Mode

When on Bridge Mode, your node will not have its own separate network.  All nodes and client devices connected to your WiFi or to the existing modem router (gateway) will be on the same network and can communicate with other devices within the network.

This article will help you log in to your mesh system while your node is set on bridge mode. 

 

Log in through the Linksys app

NOTE:  Steps and images may vary depending on the operating system of your mobile device.  In most of the examples below, an iOS device is used.

Step 1: 
Connect your mobile device to your WiFi and launch the Linksys app.

Step 2:
Tap on Manage Your Wi-Fi.

NOTE:  If you are using an Android™ device, tap on Log in instead.
