What should I do if I want to use Deco along with my existing router?

If you want to use Deco along with your existing router, do the following:

Define a different network name (SSID) and password from those of your current network. Running Deco with the same SSID might lead to technical problems.

If possible, turn off your existing router’s Wi-Fi. You will then have a single SSID for your whole network, with minimal wireless interference. This will ensure a reliable internet connection and seamless roaming.

If your router is a combination device from your ISP, check with your ISP for instructions on how to turn off its wireless capabilities. Your ISP may also have directions on how to set the device to bridge mode.
