Coronavirus pandemic has hit the whole of mankind pretty hard and almost everything has been shut down. Even after being completely closed and confined to homes, the world is still running, thanks to the internet. Me being a teacher has had a first-hand experience of how the internet has solved the global problem in the pandemic. With everyone being confined to their homes and educational institutions being closed the classes were taken online. This was only a matter of time before everyone would no other option due to the prolonged period of the lockdown globally.
In my case, I had to teach a class all day long using my home-based router and it did not have a good range of speed that would allow me to teach my students without having any technical difficulties. I had to find a solution so that my students could study easily and enjoy my classes and not have to look at a blurred screen for the whole class due to the bad connection. Therefore I decided to get myself a Linksys mx10 ax velop setup. A mesh WiFi system that could my entire home and gives me satisfactory speeds and network contrary to the conventional router that I had at home.
Completing the Linksys mx10 velop ax setup
To complete the setup of your Linksys velop mx10 you will need to know a few things. It is a mesh WiFi system and basically comes with a minimum of two devices. A primary node and any number of secondary nodes that you will need. Let’s see how the steps are to setup your mesh device and how I set it up. First off I needed to download the Linksys velop application on my mobile phone so that I can use it to setup my devices easily. I downloaded it on my mobile phone.
Then I went ahead to create an account on the mobile application and then logged in using it. Next, I powered up my primary node and then connected to the internet source using an Ethernet cable. Next, I opened up the mobile application and brought it closed to the primary node, and connected it to it. It was quite easy to do that. Then I powered up the secondary nodes and connected them to the main node by using the mobile application.
It is quite simple and you just have to choose them as networks and then change their names to your preference. It helps distinguish between them easily if you name them after the location they are kept in.
After that, you can go ahead and place the primary and secondary nodes equidistance from each other so that they can form a mesh and provide you with seamless connectivity at all times. It doesn’t get any easier than this. The mobile application can help you remotely access your device and change settings and do many other things. Downloading it is highly advisable.
Mx10 velop as a firmware upgrade
It is important to regularly check for and download and install the firmware upgrades that are released by the company. They contain a lot of bug fixes for the program and also many security patches that help keep your connection secure from intruders and malware. To check for updates simply go to the menu of the mobile application and press the check for updates option. Once it shows the list you can download and install them instantly. The device will become non-functional during the firmware upgrade but will return to normal working capacity after it is done. Running a power cycle is highly advisable after a firmware upgrade.
