Adding a single router

Bulk adding routers

You also have the option to bulk add multiple routers. The following steps will guide you on adding multiple routers using a CSV file:

1. Create a CSV file. This should contain three columns:

  • MAC: This column is for entering the MAC address of each router.
  • Model: This column is for entering the model of each router.
  • Name: This column is for entering the name of each router.

A sample CSV file containing the three columns described above can be generated from the Add Router page by clicking Download sample CSV.

2. Click Browse to upload your CSV file, as seen in Figure 4.
