  • Sort of....as long as your WiFi network only uses one Linksys node. My network has three nodes (a main one and two that act as the range extenders) and initially I had trouble controlling and managing lights and switches whenever my phone or iPad wasn’t connected to the same Linksys Node that the Wemo or Philips Hue bridge was plugged into. So I eventually used a small Ethernet switch and connected all three of my bridges to the “main” node, the one that is plugged into the modem and it significantly improved reliability and connectivity. I’m pretty sure by plugging a bridge into one of the “satellite” nodes, it creates problems with trying to figure out what WiFi channels to utilize.
