Smart Connect is an amazing feature that promises to simplify your wireless life and ensure that you get the most out of your tri-band router.
Smart Connect takes all of the hassle and guesswork out of prioritizing your wireless devices and distributing them efficiently among the three available bands.By balancing the load and assigning devices to the most appropriate band,delays and interruptions can be dramatically reduced.
Why does it matter which band my device connects to?
When you connect a device to your router, Smart Connect will automatically identify the best available channel and assign the device to it.It is true that piling too many devices on one band might reduce its performance.Smart Conncet technology allows your router to automatically choose the most efficient device so that every device is able to reach its full potential.
Does this mean I will have to log into more than one network?
No. Your router will create a single, unified SSID (network name) that you can log into using a single password.All you have to do is log into one network one time,then the router does the rest,automatically giving each device access to every band and assigning it to the best one.
But,this doesn’t mean that you’ve lost all control over the way device are assigned and ressigned on the network.The user-friendly web portal allows you to see which devices are on each band at any point in time and manually move to whichever band you perfer.
