    Clicking the More icon allows you to enable Development Mode.

    Basic navigation

    AirLink OS lists its main sections in a menu along the left. Clicking a section heading displays a list of all sub-sections on that page.

    The menu across the top shows you the sub-sections of the page. Clicking a heading in the top menu takes you to that sub-section.

    As mentioned above, using Search is the fastest way to find the settings you want.

    Other tips

    While you’re modifying settings in AirLink OS, the browser tracks and displays your progress with the status bar.

    You can click the arrow (>) in the status bar to view every setting that you’ve modified so far. If you need to revert any of your changes-in-progress, click UNDO next to any of the individual lines or to revert everything.

    When you’re all done, click SAVE to push your changes to the router.
