Hi Support and Experts
I have a few questions regarding Deco M5 (3 pack).
I will have M5 to work only when I manually activate Wi-Fi on my router (Genexis).
Followed the instructions and the setup went smooth. Easy-peacy! :)
At the moment I have a LAN-cable from the router to the firs M5 and Router-mode.
I have used my resent network name, and WAP KEY as password
1 Must the first M5 be connected with LAN-cable to the router (the other 2 is set up wireless)?
2 How do I configure M5 in the Deco-app?
Should I choose Router- or AP-mode? (Remeber I am a senior and complicated words in a replay could cause unexpected results :)!)
3 When I configure M5 in the app, should I use the same network name (SSID) as I use on the router (Genexis) or it doesn’t matter? Can call the network «M5WIFI» a.e.?
4 Should the password for M5 network be the same as WPA KEY (router password), or it doesn’t matter? Can call it «EXCALIBUR589» a.e.?
5 If I can use another network name and another password, will that mean that I have to logg in with this new information if I shall connect a new device to the «M5»-network?
6 Or, is the solution as simple as to pull out the LAN-cable from the first M5? :)
Because, now I have disconnected the Wi-Fi on the router but I still have Wi-Fi/Internet available, and the Deco-app shows all 3pc M5’s and connected devices (phones, lawn mower, chromecats etc).
Do you have any solutions how to configure the M5-devices so they only work when I manually activate Wi-Fi on my router (Genexis)?
Best summer regards
