The Sila does operate off its own branded app from Razer. We are using the iPhoneX for this review.
To begin, we tap set up, create a Razer account, get the hardware unpacked and plugged in.
As mentioned, the Razer logo on the top of the router is a status indicator. To continue setup we are waiting for a blue blinking light.
The Sila does appear to use Bluetooth to run through setup, seen above the router has been found, we now setup details.
Setup details allow you to choose your SSID and password, by default Razer uses one SSId for both bands.
The dashboard is broken down into sections with Internet settings at the top, Sila settings in the middle and device list to the right.
Settings include SSID, password and the ability to enable or disable the WebGUI. Down below you can separate the bands, turn on beamforming or enable compatibility mode for legacy devices.
The router does include its own speed test along with a real-time traffic analyzer as part of its prioritization platform. Seen above, the router is able to show traffic coming through by platform and device along with a total traffic meter above.
Taking things further, you can customize traffic priority by type and then assign types to devices.
Last, we have traffic management that allows us to enable or disable FasTrack and Gaming mode. Down below, while in gaming mode, you can set your ISP performance settings accordingly using the built-in speed test.
