    best of my wifi for 10 years

    These devices were installed and configured using a mobile application in 10 minutes.
    My apartment has an area of 120 square meters, and everywhere I have a great signal.
    In all rooms, my TVs show an image as 4K without interferences.
    I was forced to get rid of two repeaters and one wireless router.
    Finally, I can manage my wireless network from anywhere in the world using a mobile application!
    I really regret that earlier I did not have the Velop System.

    Assessment

    I am very pleased with my system. I just wish there were option to obtain longer cords for the main unit so I can better place the extender component.

    Great wide area service

    Before purchasing Velop I have a dual band router that covered half my home. I decide to upgrade after looking at reviews and satisfaction. The Velop won both! I am please with it

    This Product is amazing

    I’ve had an awesome experience thus far with my Linksys tri band wireless router system thus far. Easy to setup and easy to use. Simple and sophisticated.

    Solved the Problem

    Wifi works great through out the entire house now. I have one node per floor, full wifi signal in every part of the house.

    Awesome & Highly Recommended

    This project is awesome and the mesh technology is 100% times better than my dated AirPorts all over the house. Setup was super easy once my Xfinity modern was updated (it was too old) and I am seeing what better service and speeds. Wish I switched sooner.

    Epically terrible product

    I have now spent more than 6 hours trying to make the 3 nodes try to talk to one another. I have them sitting right beside each other so that there should be no issues with wireless distance. The app constantly crashes, you need to endless hard reset the units. The setup time is epically slow as it searches for the units and installs itself. 6 hours of my life lost and am still no closer to getting this product to work. Don't fool yourself if you think this will be a quick setup. I will eventually get this working but it is a system truly full of bugs! Be warned!

    Not Truly Plug & Play but still pretty great

    It took me some time to set my mesh system up. The app is well designed and straight forward but I still had to contact customer support and perform a few resets and firmware updates before I was up and running. Customer service was great and well trained. Now that it’s all set up it’s working great and provides me with a stronger WiFi network than my AirPort Extreme did.

    Start with Support

    Great product, great performance. But ...

    Given the variety of environments a product like this is going to enter, Linksys should provide an easy avenue to their very good online support documents and videos. Not quite as simple as "hello."

    Rubbish - Do Not Buy this Product

    This product is terrible.

    I spent hours trying to get this to work.

    One of the 3 nodes just kept reporting as offline, even though the status LED said it was online.

    Why are the status LEDs on the top of the unit - you cant see them when the device is on the shelf unless you have a ladder.

    The cables go into the bottom of the unit - makes cable management really bad.

    You have to be online to manage the nodes - why ?
    If I'm not online, I can't see the network status or change settings.

    The online help is different to the control widgets / dashboard.

    You CANNOT set this up using an iOS device - or a late-model Powerbook that only has USBC ports.
    You MUST use a computer WITH AN ETHERNET PORT - WHY ?

    This product has not been well conceived.

    I'm taking it back for a refund.

    PIECE OF RUBBISH - Do Not Buy this Product

    The only good thing about this product is the box.

    I just spent FIVE HOURS trying to make this work.

    I’m a computer scientist with 30 years experience with networks …
    here’s why I think this product is useless :-

    1. The power-packs are so wide they wont fit side-by-side on a powerboard
    2. The cable management is CRAZY
    You have to bend the ethernet cables to breaking point to get them through the cable opening
    so that the unit will stand up properly
    3. The status LED is on the TOP of the unit - what are they thinking ?
    So you cant see it when the unit is on a cabinet or bookcase.
    4. The setup and management info displayed on the app is TOTALLY DIFFERENT to the Web interface
    5. Info displayed when using Firefox is totally different to when using Safari
    6. The controls are TOTALLY DIFFERENT to the way they are described in the Online help
    7. The online help is pretty terrible - it tells you what functions do, but not how to activate them.
    For example, it describes what a factory reset does, but not how to do it.
    If you use Safari - you cant do a factory reset
    If you use the iOS app - you cant do a factory reset
    You have to use Firefox.
    8. The interfaces are reeeaaaly slow.
    9. Both the app and the web interface report info that is JUST WRONG.
    When I use my iPad to read settings, it tells me that the iPad is offline - really ??
    10. Devices connected via WiFI are reported as being connected by LAN
    11. Parental controls only operate in 60-minute chunks
    - so I cant log my kids off at 8:30.
    12. The fonts on the iOS app are really small and difficult to read
    13. I hate all the gimmicky graphics
    14. The controls are illogically organised - not intuitive at all
    15. You can’t select Channels manually
    16. Speed is very average compared to AirPort Extreme
    With extreme I get 1300 Mbps - best I can get with Velop is 500.
    17. There is no way to select modes - a/b/c/n
    18. One of the 3 nodes just keeps going offline.
    Troubleshooting tells me to unplug it, then asks if the LED is red, which is is NOT,
    then it tells me to unplug it again, and so on around in circles.

    I’m re-installing my old single Airport instead of these 3 Velops.
    It has better range, is much more useable, robust and TWICE AS FAST.

    I wish I could give this product ZERO stars.
    This $700 box of junk is going back to the shop.

    Finally great WiFi speed

    Since installing the system our WiFi speed in all parts of our home is fantastic. No more watching the little circle go round and round only to get an error message. Yipee!! Great system!!

    Big improvement over the legacy airport extreme

    Big improvement over the legacy airport extreme
    The system has worked out really well for me. Very easy to set up and intuitive. I wish there was a functioning USB port. Also wish there was a way to more quantitatively determine position of each node with respect to signal strength.

    Pretty fantastic

    These wireless mesh routers work so amazingly, there is little to no room for error. The syncing process was super easy, and was able to upgrade my WiFi in under 20 minutes!

    Great Results!

    Th eVelops tripled my speed within moments of installation. Best investment ever!

    Great product !

    I always purchased Airpor base stations for my home WiFi. Recently when my AirPort Extreme quit working I was not sure what to buy. After speaking with specialist in my local Apple Store I decided on the Linksys Velop 3 pack. An I am extremely happy! Easy setup and coverage in my entire house and out to my pool area.

  • 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Total waste of money

    I have struggled with this garbage for 3 weeks and have now gone back to my old reliable ASUS triband router.

    The velop provided worse coverage and my devices kept connecting to the slower 2.4Gz network despite being in the same room as the node and when I moved about the house it never switched to a nearby node always the one it initially connected to - hardly a mesh.

    nodes kept disconnecting from the master and the loft node couldn't be persuaded to ever connect to the nearer node on the middle floor instead it kept kept connecting to the living room node 2 flights down.

    How anyone gives this more then a 1 star and is happy is beyond me. The linksys forums are full of unhappy customers and mine is now back in its box.

    An awesome replacement for Apple routers

    I was hesitant to go outside of apples ecosystem since my time capsule has been so awesome but I wanted to update my router and since Apple has withdrawn from that line I decided to go with the Linksys velop mesh system, I figured if Apple was recommending it as an replacement then it must be worth while. I’ve been using it for two weeks now and my coverage is way better than it was with my TC (3rd gen), the app is really clean and easy to use also. Even though I wasn’t able to use the app for the initial setup due to a firmware update that was needed I was able to speak with their customer service in no time and they were very helpful with resolving the issue and getting the velop system running with no problems. It’s awesome!

    Simple to setup

    The whole process took 15 minutes. The three devices configured automatically and after a firmware update, my home network was ready to use. App makes it very easy to add parental controls and device prioritization.

    Great product if you don’t have to put it in bridged mode

    This product has great coverage and works well. Easy setup with simple app. Web interface is accessible for more complex configuration. If you have to put the system in bridge mode meaning that you have another device that assigns IP addresses it disables most all of the features that make the product great.
