Is your Linksys Velop router creating problems on the network? If yes, then you need to open the web interface of the router in order to fix the underlying problem.
- Before you open the web-based interface, you need to check if the node of Velop router is set to default. If it is not, then you need to factory reset the device through the ‘Settings’ menu.
- A stable connection between Velop and your computer is needed, which could be via an Ethernet cable or through Wi-Fi.
Configuring Velop router’s node using the web-based interface:
- The process begins with launching your web browser and entering ‘routerlogin.com’ in the address bar.
- As you do so, a smart Wi-Fi setup page shows up on the screen.
- Tap ‘desktop-blocking.html’ file and replace it with ‘setup.html’.
- If prompted to enter login details, you need to enter ‘admin’ in the username field and ‘password’ in the password field.
- Select SSID and password for the router.
- Click ‘Save setup node’ and with that, your master node credentials will be saved.
- Once you have made changes in the settings, tap ‘Finish’.
In case, you are connecting the node through a wireless interface, enter SSID in the field and then, set up a primary node using simple Velop setup.
