How to log in to the Velop Dashboard while on Bridge Mode

The Bridge Mode option of your Linksys Velop Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System allows all nodes and client devices connected to the nodes to be part of your existing network.  In this way, all devices (regardless if they are connected to the Velop or to the existing gateway / router) are now on the same network and can communicate with each other.  

This article will help you log in to your Velop system while your Velop is set on Bridge Mode.
