Turning off the Wi-Fi on your existing wireless router or modem-router combo will improve the performance of your Mercku mesh network by reducing channel utilization.
Instructions on how to turn off your existing router’s Wi-Fi signal varies by your internet service provider and/or modem/router manufacturer. Some routers and modem-router combos may have a physical switch to toggle Wi-Fi on/off but if not, please follow the general instructions below:
- From a device that is not connected to your Mercku network, open a web browser and enter your router’s web interface (you can find this through your router or ISP’s webpage).
- Log in with your username and password, or if you haven’t set this up use the default one provided by the manufacturer or check the back of your unit
- From the web interface, look for wireless settings, and you should have the ability to turn the device's Wi-Fi signal off.
- Once this change has been applied, the router will restart.
