(V3) Wi-Fi Client Mode

Last Updated: Sep 03, 2012 06:51PM PDT

Your Vera 3 can work as both your main Wi-Fi router and also along with your Wi-Fi router.  If you'll be using it as your main Wi-Fi router, Vera 3 will usually be connected directly to your broadband modem or home network through a physical wire connection.  This connection is ideal, but sometimes you may want or need to position your Vera 3 in a part of the house where a wire is impossible.


If you already have another Wi-Fi router in the home, you can make Vera 3 work in "client mode." This means that instead of your Vera 3 providing Wi-Fi to other devices, Vera 3 instead gets access to the Internet from your existing Wi-Fi router.


In the Dashboard, click Setup and then Net & Wi-Fi:

You will be presented with an option to use Vera 3 "Through A Wi-Fi Access Point. Vera is a Bridge."  Then you'll need to scan your network so that Vera 3 and your existing Wi-Fi router can recognize each other.


Important Note: When Vera 3 is in Client Mode, there must be no physical cables connected to Vera 3 (other than the power cord).  Unplug any cables from the Vera 3 out to any broadband router you may have connected it to, and unplug any cables from other devices that are physically plugged in to the ports on the back of the Vera 3.  These cables can cause confusion in your home network.  If you're going to use client mode, think of Vera 3 as just another Wi-Fi device that shouldn't be plugged into anything besides the wall.
