Answers from the community
Is this Velop mesh Wi-Fi router compatible with other Wi-Fi devices besides Apple?
- Asked by Dane J from Greenville

Yes, to my knowledge, the Linksys Velop mesh system is compatible with most if not all WiFi using de Yes, to my knowledge, the Linksys Velop mesh system is compatible with most if not all WiFi using devices, and is most definitely not limited to just the Mac or Apple products. On the other hand, if you are also wondering about other network devices, the answer would generally be no, though you can continue to connect and use an Apple Time Capsule as a backup device to your Velop network if you alter the TC's settings according to instructions posted on Apple's website.

That said, Apple never emphasized or promoted it, but their Airport Extreme/Time Capsule Tower series has a built in Mesh functionality if used with more than one, the difference being that the Velops can do it efficiently without interconnecting the multiple Velop units with ethernet cables whereas multiple Apple Airport Extreme and Time Capsules will build a wireless mesh but fare better if you interconnect them with ethernet cables.

Can I buy just one node?
- Asked by William H from Austin
- on 11-Jan-2018
Yes, you can. When you go through the set up process, you add one node at a time. If you only add on Yes, you can. When you go through the set up process, you add one node at a time. If you only add one, that's absolutely fine.

Will these work in a house with internal concrete walls?
- Asked by John B from Blackburn

If I get two nodes, does each need its own Ethernet connection, or can one Ethernet connection be picked up and amplified wirelessly by the other?
- Asked by Patrick M from Concrete
- on 25-Dec-2018
No, only one of the nodes needs to be connected to your Internet Service provider's modem, gateway o No, only one of the nodes needs to be connected to your Internet Service provider's modem, gateway or whatever your service provider calls it. That's the whole point of Mesh WiFi basestations like the Linksys Velop, that is, they create a continuous expanded bubble of WiFi signal by talking amongst themselves via a back channel. That said, they can also be inter-connected with an ethernet cable between nodes which takes over that back channel role with certain advantages. However, the majority of buyers of Mesh basestations do so because they want the convenience of not having to string ethernet cables between nodes. I'm one that did but I'm sure I'm in the minority. By the way, I would not consider buying just one Mesh device as your question infers you might be considering. Plan on Buying 2 or more depending on the area you're trying to cover.
