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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town in northern Ohio, technology was never around unless it was in a tractor. At the early age of nine years old, my parents brought home our very first PC and I was instantly hooked and quickly learned what it meant to format a hard drive, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95 as my parents slept. As I grew up, many things changed around me, but my love and enthusiast nature always kept my PC at my side. Eager to get deeper into technology, I started reviewing products.
