    WORKS WELL BUT

    My wifi works great now but it was very difficult to find an outlet that could accept the big fat power cord head you provided.

    Solved multiple issues

    • Written by Reid G from Burlington

    Had been running old Apple Airport Extreme base station on a line ISP said was getting 120 Mbs. Showed less than 40 Mbs on speed tests and no bars in back yard, so no streaming music by the pool :-( Picked up 2 pack Velop system and was up and running in about an hour with wireless printer hooked up as wll. Speed test by the pool at 127 Mbs. Not an inexpensive fix but great feel to the product, good interface and easy set up with my iPhone and my wife didn't say that they were ugly! May buy a third node for upstairs, but seems to be good without it

    Very easy to setup, with some minor glitches

    • Written by Brian P from Montvale

    The mobile app worked very well for initial setup and there have only been minor glitches that I've been able to resolve with a hard reset of both nodes. Coverage is great and seamless on the client side.

    Easy setup

    • Written by Wilma B from North Andover

    The linksys app on the iPhone was used to setup the two node system. It was easy to follow and quick. My only comment on the setup is that the led color on the unit is fusia and not purple. The signal strength and coverage is all I need. I like the dashboard option which lists all my devices connected. It shows Apple devices, smart WIFI thermostats, printers and Alexa. You will need to buy a CAT-5/6 hub if you have hard-wired equipment since the node has only a single intranet connection.

    Once set up works well

    • Written by Dylan L from Ridgewood

    This device works really well as a replacement for the Apple Airport devices. Set up was a little frustrating. Make sure to plug in one device at a time, set it up first and then plug the next one in to set up the network extensions. Overall really happy with it. The Airports were getting slow and needed repeated restarts. So far no issues with the Linksys devices

    Super easy setup, blazing speed!! 4.95 Stars!!!

    • Written by Karen Y from Brownsville

    I am an Apple fan through and through. My entire home is Apple based products, devices, computers, network, etc... so it was really hard to admit that there was anything wrong with my Apple network.

    That said, a friend of mine who is also an Apple fanatic decided to try the Linksys Velop after dealing with constant connectivity issues, which is the same thing I was experiencing with my Apple airport devices. Out of frustration (signal just drops off and I have already performed multiple troubleshooting attempts with my Apple devices), I finally decided to give this a try.

    First thought is WOW! It was super easy to set up. Had the entire network set up in less than 20 minutes. I have the elite Spectrum internet plan which offers 100mps.... I am getting, consistently, 140mps on this Velop. The best part is that I don't lose the signal! It has been running for over a week now and it hasn't lost connectivity once!!

    I set it up via my iPad and also have it on my phone. The software is easy to use, lets you see what's connected, whats not and allows for so many additional features such as "prioritization", which is really cool.

    I would give it 5 stars except for one thing.... the software shows connectivity strength in bars like most typical wifi icons, but this is inaccurate in the software. The weird thing is that it will show a single dot (lowest connectivity level) even if it is getting excellent connectivity and speed. In reality, I don't really care what shows up, in as long as I get the speed I should be getting and this device does exactly that.

    Sadly, my Airport devices are going up for sale because the Velop is amazing.

    My experience with Velop by Linksys

    • Written by Ron E from SALINAS

    As I unpackaged the Velop system the first thing that one notices is there isn't any excessive packaging. No books or messy paperwork. You get your nodes, in my case I purchased the 2 node model from apple.com , as well as starter guide that simply tells you to download the app which is available through the Apple App Store or Google, and follow the app instructions.

    The App is very user friendly. I mean step by step, picture book guided, easy. You just plug the first node into the router and wait a few minutes and it guides you to the next step. The app will also help you know if the placement of the node is going to give you the best results for your network.
    After completing the initial setup which took me about 30 minutes because of cable management aesthetics for my home, otherwise it was closer to 15 minutes I began customizing. One of the great features is that the network allows you to prioritize your wifi equipment. Because we want to have the best results for AppleTV I placed it as priority one. Next the iMac which we stream from all the time and third went to my iPad.
    You can also setup a guest network if you want one for friends and or visitors that you are alright with them using your internet but don't want them into your external hard drives that might be included in your home network or other files you might not be keen on staring.
    You also have parental control if the kids should get off the internet and start doing homework.

    The repost access though the app has been a tad unreliable as in it takes a long time for it to connect if I am out of range of home but this is not as important to me as a user as the other features.
    I was able to plug all of the other items I needed to the ports underneath the nodes such as my Hue hub.
    The app has a speed test built right into it. I was excited to see the results by eliminating my Apple router from the mix (more on that later) and the result was incredible. This is an actual screen shot of my results.
    I played with the notion of creating a Bridge Network and utilizing my Apple Time Capsule over the wifi. The downside of this is that it disables a lot of the aforementioned features. I decided to utilize the Time Capsule as a network hard drive and now I back up that way from my MacBook wirelessly.

    In conclusion I feel like this system is very much worth the money if your concerned about getting what you pay for with your service provider and have a lot of devices in your home and you need a lot of square feet coverage.
