The Keenetic application is designed for quick setup and management of Keenetic routers. The application will allow you to configure your device, update its operating system if necessary, reconfigure Wi-Fi settings, create Family Profiles to manage groups of connected devices quickly, manage built-in services, learn the status and current speed of the Internet connection, enable or disable the Guest Access Point, control all connected home devices, set schedules and much more. For each device, you can limit the speed or completely deny Internet access, configure port forwarding, set the content filtering profile of SkyDNS, AdGuard DNS or Cloudflare DNS.
First, install the application and add your Keenetic according to the article 'Adding a router locally' or 'Adding a router remotely via CID'.
Launch the application and make sure that the router is online and available for management.
