Always seems to be out of sync. If I change a setting via the browser interface it is not correctly reflected in the app and vise versa. It always seems to turn off parental controls randomly also. Which is very frustrating. Also often the parental controls just don't work. It will block web sites, but not apps like youtube!
There aren't many apps I like. This one, however is well laid out, easy to use, and hasn't frozen up on me (thus far). So I'm offering all the stars...that being said, Linksys' router firmware on the wrt3200acm lacks a number of important features that are standard on openwrt and ddwrt. I replaced my airport extreme because it lacked security features like openvpn and a (useful) firewall. Anyways, the app is nice.
App tells me my cloud login is bad every time it is used (6 months of reporting issue). However, I can use the direct router login in-app, or mobile Web just fine. So, what is the actual point of the app if the cloud access does not work? But, hey, at least we have Velop support...Whatever that is.
Hate to say that this app is useless. Can't access anything, doesn't find my router, can't get back onto the old app as it sends you straight to this one. So I can't control my router! Cheers Linksys🙁
I've had my Velop set up now for a few hours and this app makes it all so easy! Great interface and easy to use. Parental controls are easy to set up and easy to track
Fair enough: trouble when updated 2.3.2 version: ⚛ can't login ("invalid account info.") ⚛ after restart router device..try login and got connection issue. ⚛ been a while.. And voila.. Login success ✌ 😁 but smartwifi cloud service down temporary.
With your comments we improved the experience for Linksys routers and Velop systems.
