Setting Up Your Apple Airport Extreme for Mevo

Overview

We have found that Apple's Airport Extreme router provides a reliable connectivity experience with Mevo.

The Airport Extreme automatically creates a 5GHz Wi-Fi network, which we recommend when connecting your Mevo to a local network. Additionally, the Airport Extreme supports DFS (Dynamic Frequency Selection), which generally sets its Wi-Fi network on a channel with little local interference from other wireless devices.

This helps in creating a stable connection from the Mevo to your mobile device through the local Wi-Fi network. 

Setup for Mevo

Once you have connected your Airport Extreme and created its wireless networks according to its included instructions, navigate to the AirPort Utility and select Edit.
