GVEC Internet now makes managing your home WiFi network through your GVEC-rented Calix router easier than ever! Introducing the new GVEC WiFi mobile app!
Got a GVEC Calix Router?
Renting a GVEC router already delivers the conveniences of comprehensive troubleshooting and worry-free replacement.
Now, renting a Calix router from us allows you to utilize the new GVEC WiFi app. This app gives you greater control over connections to your internet with hands-on access, parental controls, and visible awareness of the people, places and things that comprise your home network—all from an easily managed, centralized dashboard.
Once you set up the GVEC WiFi app by registering your email address, password and Calix router, your central command center will be found on your “Dashboard.” From here, you’ll be able to conveniently check the status of your internet connection, go inside “My Network” to see your Wi-Fi and guest networks, view equipment like the router and mesh unit(s), and view the amount of bandwidth used by connected devices.
The toolbar at the bottom of the Dashboard screen gives you the ability to tailor settings for three categories: People, Places and Things.
“Things” gives you a full list of all devices connected to your network. Once you’ve set up your devices in this listing, you can check them anytime by tapping into a particular one. Doing so will give you access to usage statistics, the ability to pause internet connectivity, set activity priorities and more to each specific device. You’ll need to set up your Things list before adding People and Places.
“People” is where you can create profiles and set controls for internet users in your household. Assigning network-connected devices to individuals will give you the ability to monitor usage, pause internet access, set time limits and more. You can add as many profiles as you want.
“Places” allows you to group devices that are specifically dedicated to certain areas of the house by rooms or locations. This is a great way to organize your devices. You can set up a name and picture for each Place and then select all devices located there for quick access.
