Setup for the Arris is all done within the app. This is available on both iOS and Android. We are testing using the app on iOS 13.1.3 on an iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Setup continues into the app with a basic guided experience, something most of us have likely used in the past.
After a few questions, naming the router etc., you will land here at the dashboard, and if you chose to set up both nodes, you should see both listed as seen above. The dashboard will check the throughput between nodes and display that above, along with your ISP speed at the top. Along the bottom, we have several options for configuring the nodes these include; parental controls, network settings, and guest network.
The device list, which you will find on the dashboard, shows network activity for each device.
Parental controls allow you to set up and enable profiles for devices.
Networking settings include the ability to change the SSID and password.
Advanced Network offers LAN and WAN IP configuration along with port forwarding and UPnP.
Each device that is running the Arris app has the ability to run a speed test from the node to your device. The above result is the mAX Pro to our iPhone 11 Pro Max.
