This next step continues to connecting to the default wireless network for the router.

The app then checks for firmware updates, and if there are any, it will update your router to the latest version.

After we have the latest firmware, we move on to setting up our network SSID. This can be anything you want.

Last in setup, the router will configure with the settings you specified.

Once you are in the app, you will see the detected router at the top with the 2.4 and 5GHz networks listed with their passwords. Down below we have a device list that shows what is connected.
