Advanced Networking Settings Update
We want to notify you about a Luma app update, which adds Advanced Networking Settings. Specifically you will find the ability to do Static DHCP Leases, Port Forwarding, Universal Plug N Play and IGMP Snooping. If these features don’t sound familiar to you, don’t worry, it’s probably because your network does not require them. However, some users may need these features to help configure devices like video cameras on their network.
We are pleased to offer these Advanced Networking Settings in order to enhance your internet experience while delivering WiFi you’ll love! Future updates will be released on an ongoing basis to continually improve your Luma Surround WiFi System.
Below we’ve included additional details on each new feature.
If you have any questions or feedback, feel free to contact our support team at email@example.com or 800–684-LUMA.

Luma Advanced Networking Settings:
The new Advanced Networking features will allow the administrator greater control over their Luma home network. Located under the “WiFi Settings” section and named “Advanced”, you will be able to select this to control your new features.
These new additions introduce four new elements to the Luma home network, which allow greater control over the home network.
- Static DHCP Lease
- Port Forwarding
- Universal Plug and Play (UPnP)
- Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) Snooping
Static DHCP Lease
This feature allows someone who requires a dedicated IP address for certain network devices (like network cameras, web server, etc. ), to assign a static IP to those devices so each time the device connects to the network, it will be given the same IP address.
Port forwarding allows Luma home administrators to create dedicated port forwarding rules so that specific ports on internal devices can be accessible from the Internet. Additionally, port forwarding connects specific devices on your Luma home network with remote computers.
Universal Plug and Play control (UPnP)
By default, Luma devices are UPnP-enabled. This newly added feature allows the Luma home administrator to control whether or not UPnP is enabled.
Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) Snooping
This feature helps to reduce unnecessary traffic on interfaces that do not need to receive the multicast stream.
Please Note: During the update process your Luma devices will momentarily spin blue. This should take no longer than 2–3 minutes. During this time, you will experience a temporary connectivity drop. The light will flash green for a few seconds when the update is complete.
