The System Dashboard shows a plethora of information relating to your network and Vilos
How to Find the System Dashboard
- On the home page, click on your Wi-Fi network, you will then see a round orange button that says, “System Dashboard.” In this section, you will see data on your current Wi-Fi network.
What does the System Dashboard show me?
The System Dashboard shows a slew of system statuses including the following metrics:
- The first section of the System Dashboard will show you your Firmware version. If a new version of the firmware is available, we strongly recommend updating it. You need to update your firmware to improve the performance of your current Wi-Fi network.
- Regular Restarts
- This allows you to schedule a restart on your WIFI network. Please refer to - Restart Wi-Fi Guide, for more details
- Band Steering
- If band steering is toggled on, Vilo will automatically connect your device to 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz to optimize performance.
- If band steering is toggled off, the current Wi-Fi network will split into two Wi-Fi networks. One is 2.4 GHz only, the other is 5GHz only and they share the same password. WIFI settings on your phone will show two WIFI networks accordingly. You can also choose to hide either or both networks by toggling on “Hide Wi-Fi” on this page.
- WI-FI Password Security
- This shows if the password of your current Wi-Fi network is secure enough.
- WI-FI Encryption
- You have 3 options: WPA2, WPA/WPA2 and No Encryption. The most secure encryption setting, WPA2, is strongly recommended unless you have an older device that does not support WPA2.
