Broadband & Wifi
The house has fiber connection (300 mbps download / 300 mbps upload) which makes it easy to work remotely from the house or enjoy the latest movies/TV shows. There are four Google Nest routers and access points throughout the property to secure good wifi coverage. The main router is in the utility cabinet behind the bedroom on the bottom floor, so in case of any wifi or network issues it’s usually resolved by restarting the router by unplugging it and plugging it back in (see pic of the router on the left).
The name of the Wifi network is: “Kristjanssons” and the Wifi password is: “cantona7”
There are nine bluetooth/network speakers in the house, so it’s very easy to play your favorite audio content through these speakers.
To play music in all speakers please use the Home speaker group. For playing music only outdoors please use the Outdoor speaker group and finally for playing music only indoors please use the Indoor speaker group.
