    Very good mesh solution

    • Written by Wayne T from Portland

    I purchased a 2 pack and found that setup was easy, overage and capacity have both been very sold. The Apple allows for a grange of confirmation types and options which are also easy to setup. I went with the white model and they look great in my home as well, A+ Linksys!

    Very good coverage

    • Written by Derick D

    This Mesh router is easy to install and setup and works very good. I recommend this to anyone who has a fairly large house with spotty WIFI coverage. I have 2 floors and a basement and started to get 3 the 3 NOD Pack. However, after installing the 2 pack, (1 on each floor) the entire house, the front yard and backyard is fully covered.

    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.

    So worth the money

    • Written by Rima A from Sydney

    One of the best things I’ve ever purchased. I am paying for premium internet speeds & prior to buying this, my internet would continuously drop out, forcing me to reset my modem, sometimes multiple times a day as well as renewing the lease in my WiFi settings.. Now that I’m using the Linksys Velop whole Home WiFi system, I have NONE of these issues & I’m connected 24/7.

    Perfect!!!

    Great Product, Easy Set Up

    • Written by Rocco C from South Glastonbury

    Title say it all. Set up took less than half an hour and was really simple, just followed the instructions provided through the phone application. After install there's a notable speed improvement on all phones, laptops and desktops. Network status and control through the phone application is really useful.

    Velop doesn't appear to support iTunes Home Sharing with Macs

    • Written by David S from Winston-Salem

    I bought a Velop two pack from Best Buy yesterday to test against my Time Capsule AC unit to see if would extend wifi to more distant areas of my two floor 2200 square foot house due using its separate node in my problematic basement, but, it will be returned today.

    Interestingly it wasn't quite as good as my TC throughput-wise even with my distant basement iMac server but the real deal breaker is the fact it won't route Bonjour services correctly from my iMac's iTunes Home Sharing Library as it drops that iMac's connection every hour. Linksys is aware of the problem but doesn't have a fix yet. (...and factory resets, latest firmware installed on both Velop nodes and enabling multicast filtering doesn't prevent the network drops.)

    Just a heads up if you're considering a Velop with iTunes Home Sharing from a Mac, otherwise, it's a very good mesh system.

    Works As Expected

    • Written by William P from Palm Springs

    I replaced my Apple Airport router with the Linksys Velop. Seems to work as expected. You can log in to the Linksys website (from desktop, iPhone or iPad) and see what is connected, which is nice as well as prioritize connected devices. Seems to do a lot more then my old Airport. I was a little cautious buying a non-Apple wifi router, but this product seems to fit the bill. Pretty easy to set up with my iPhone. I have only used it for 1 week so far, so time will tell.

    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.

    Streamlined, Easy, Increadible Speed, Excellent Coverage

    • Written by Eric B from San Diego

    The setup was easy, the features are professional grade, the performance is phenomenal, and system is what you would expect from Linksys. This system was a great replacement for the AirPort Extreme and keeps my HomeKit devices connected.

    Easy Setup/ Great coverage

    • Written by Eric H from HELLERTOWN

    First of all, pro tip: name your new wifi network the same as your old and use the same password. I have a lot of HomeKit enabled devices and was apprehensive about setting everything up again. By using the same network name and password, everything in my mouse reconnected immediately! Fantastic. Now the Velop itself is awesome, Great app to monitor. Simple set up. Although my ISP speed is not great, I have a lot if "intra"netting in my house and I noticed a difference from HomeKit response time to wifi printing. I am an an all Apple house and liked the Time Capsule back-up. I set up a Synology NAS to use for backing up. Make the switch!

    Dead Spots Gone

    • Written by Daniel B from Somerville

    We have a large, sprawling loft that had many dead spots despite using two routers in Bridge Mode to try to deal with them. The 2 node Velop system has taken care of the dead spots and I get fast internet speeds in the far recesses of our place. All of our HomeKit devices respond fast and Siri works very quickly on our HomePod to run HoneKut commands. Highly recommend!

    Very easy & straight forward setup...all via the iPhone app. And the coverage in our townhouse (1900 sq ft) with the 2 pack is perfect! Big step up from our previous AirPort. And the style is sleek and low-key. Very happy after 1 week of use!

    Upgrading to the world of Linksys "Mesh."

    • Written by Joe T from Santa Barbara

    Installing my new twin-tower system was a flawless experience. The installation procedure is not only easy, unambiguous and quick, it's fun. Getting confirmation within the setup sequence that the slave node was being placed in a location that was within range for reliable communication with the master, gave me the peace of mind that the coverage in my situation was being optimized. I now have lightning fast response on an iPad at one extremity of my home while optimizing the connectivity with two, exterior mounted security cameras at the other end. I can recommend the Linksys "Velop" without reservation.
