Gigaclear router: the new Linksys hub

The new Linksys hub is a Velop node designed specifically for the UK's Gigaclear ISP.

Velop is a modular node-based Intelligent Mesh WiFi System that adapts to the requirements of every home and provides faultless Wi-Fi wherever you need it. It's simple to customise the ideal Wi-Fi solution for you, regardless of the size, shape, or location of your home, thanks to the family of nodes' diverse sizes that perform flawlessly together and are exquisitely designed to blend in any setting.

The advantages of the new gigaclear Linksys hub over the normal WiFi broadband cannot be overemphasised because you have the assurance of:

  • Good connectivity.
  • Performance excellence.

How to set up your Gigaclear router

The step process for the gigaclear router can be done by effectively following the steps below.

Step 1: Place the extra node one meter away from your Linksys router and connect it to a power source.

Step 2: Hold off until you notice a purple LED light on the node's top. As you proceed through the setup procedure, the Linksys app will immediately start looking for your extra node.

Step 3: The purple LED light on the device will begin to flash when the additional node is located. During this time, don't move either the node or the mobile device.

Step 4: Your Linksys router is currently linked to the extra node.

Step 5: The additional node's LED light should become steadily blue once connected.

Step 6: Unplug the extra node and place it halfway between the Linksys router and the area where you want a stronger Wi-Fi signal.

Step 7: The five-button method can be used to start your mesh if you are unable to run the program for any reason:

Bring the nodes together and power them all up within a meter of the main unit.

Press the central node's reset button quickly five times in a row. Each node will then be initialised, and the lights will begin to change.

Once all nodes have attained a constant blue, leave these alone for a few minutes. The additional nodes can then be moved in whatever way you see suitable.
