Great Product
I had been running on the Cable/Modem combo which my ISP gives out and I thought it was more than what I needed. That was not true at all, coverage was actually fair but the speed was terrible. I upgraded to the Velop system and spread all three units around the house and what a difference it made. I must admit, setting up was a little frustating as one of the steps was establishing communication with my modem and it took several restarts until it got it but after that it was all smooth sailing. Adding the other two modes was a breeze as the app walks you through it and well worth it at the end. I would recommend giving it a shot and what's the worst it could happen? You don't like it and return it (doubtful)

Mesh / node switchover not so good
I bought this to roam around the house (3000 sq-ft). It was great as long as I didn't go from one side of the house to the other. If on the phone (Droid or Apple) using Wifi calling, it was painful to try and continue a conversation during the switch.

Beautifully Designed And Excellent Speeds

The Velop Whole-home Wifi 3-Pack came in a beautiful designed box, the unboxing experience was pure joy, simple and elegant. As you open the box you have 3 gorgeous routers staring you in the face. These are designed with class you will not want to hide them in a closet or behind things, you can leave these in the open and barley notice them. They did a wonderful job designing these. The setup process was very easy, you can tell they did a lot of engineering to make this go as smooth as it can. The setup is done via an App, both android and iOS is supported. So please make sure you have a tablet or phone ready. Setting up the first node is simple, just following the instructions on the app, once that is setup you have options to setup more nodes, again very easy if you just follow the app. I had zero issues setting mine up. Each node has 2 ethernet ports, your first node will have to be used as WAN/LAN but the other nodes will provide 2 LAN ports. My first node I have a switch connected to the LAN port with zero issues. I believe you can also set these nodes up using ethernet cables vs wireless, but to me I don't see why you need to because the wireless connection to each node is solid. Coming from my old router I see huge speed improvements in certain parts of my house. For example one room in my house was almost impossible to get wifi to, when I did a speed test it came in at 41/20 and could only be on the 2.4ghz range, never could I get anything to connect using 5ghz range. Once I placed a node in this room I was able to get 150/25, a huge improvement. The speeds are like that throughout my house, I have 1 node in my basement and two nodes upstairs. I can walk anywhere in the house and alway have full bars and a fast connection. I'm also seeing a huge improvements on my connection outside of the house, so its nice to be in the yard and still have wifi. Streaming netflix, youtube and playing video games (xbox) I had zero buffering issues, I haven't tried streaming 4k. I have 25 devices connected to my nodes and haven't noticed any issues yet. I do have a con for the Velop system, the parental controls need improved, I believe they can do that in the next update or two. I have no way to setup times I want my kids to access the internet, the app says to use the web gui but when you go to the web gui there is nothing there to setup the parental controls. The only thing the app lets you do is block websites or that user. Also the geek inside me wants more control, I would like to see support where i can change the LAN IP and access to a web gui. Also IPv6 support. I am very impressed with this system, the speed and the range can not be beat, well done Linksys, well done. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Extreme Power Small Size

LOVE LOVE LOVE This amazing new router! First off even the box and the way it was packaged so neatly even made me love it even more. It's such a powerful router in such a small form factor. It looks so nice placed anywhere you decide to call it it's home. Setup of this router was a breeze using the Linksys Smart Wifi App and only took under about 5 minutes to get my new network up and running. The speed I experience with this new device is beyond my expectations as well as the range of coverage I have with it. I've never been so satisfied with a product I would highly recommend this router to anyone and everyone. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Wi-Fi All Over My Home

Velop was just what I needed to help improve the wi-fi coverage in my home. My Linksys EA9500 router was getting the job done, but the Velop mesh system takes things to a whole new level in a great way. Beautiful packaging, easy to follow set up and everything you need to get up and going is in the box. The Linksys app is very intuitive and steps you through everything in a very organized way. The set up of the additional two nodes was really easy. You just follow the guide on the app and it does the rest. I love it. The performance overall is really good. Using just one node, the coverage was excellent all by itself. I am amazed with how something so small can work so well. My home is 4000 sq. feet. After installing Velop, I walked around the house with my wi-fi analyzer there are no dead spots anywhere in my home. It took me almost two hours to get the first node set up. I would get to the point when the node was trying to set itself up (it creates its own Wi-Fi access point) and would hang up there. I eventually figured out my alternate Wi-Fi point was interfering with the set up. Once I got that shut down..the first node set itself up like magic. It was my fault. I should have disabled the other Wi-Fi access point. The instructions and in app guide felt almost too simple for me. This was the easiest set up process I have ever seen. The only issue was (maybe not an issue) is that the app doesn't explain what the process is going to be before you start. You only find out as you go along. It would have saved me some time if I was told how to prepared my existing network prior to installation. Setting up the other two nodes was easy and trouble free. I thought the power supplies for the nodes are too big. They take up a lot of real estate on a power strip and if they needed to be that big, a vertical approach might have been better. They do work just fine on a standard wall outlet. Summary: Some minor set-up issues aside (it's on me), the system is great and is performing very well and totally solves my home's Wi-Fi coverage issues. My wife knew nothing about what I was doing and commented that the Wi-Fi in the house worked better than normal. There's your testimonial..

Velop Whole Home W-Fi 2 Pack

I received this as a promotional Unit to try out and review it. I did not purchase it or am I being paid to write this review. The Velop I got was the 2 package unit. It is suppose to cover 4000 sq.ft. I have another Linksys router, the 1900 series and even though it is fast I was still having deapspot in my house, especially in the basement. This house is 3 levels so I put one unit in the Living Room and the other in the Basement. To my suprise I have no deadspots on any level including the outside front porch area. I get full bars on all my devices with Wi-Fi. The streaming of movies is also no cliches or problems when playing them. Setting this up was very easy. All I had to do was plug in the units and install it with the Linksys Smart app. I use android phones so that is how I did it. I already had the app installed on my phone as that is how I setup and accessed my othe Linksys router. To install the Velop series I had to logout of my current account and then it picked up the Velop in the living room first and all I had to do was create a new account with another email address and login. It is very simple as you just have to plug the first unit in and connect in via the supplied ethernet cable to your cable router. It found that unit and asked me to name it and create a password for it. Next it found the one in the basement and it asked me to name it and that was it. I even tried out the ethernet on the one in the basement by hooking up a laptop to it via ethernet cable and it hooked up with no problem finding the internet. I would high recommend this for anyone that has problems with deadspots in their home as this Velop system is great and the speeds are fantastic. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

HOME WIFI SUPERCHARGED! LOVE IT!

Had a 2-in-1 cable/modem before I upgraded to this and WOW! I'm blown away by the difference in wireless performance that I'm getting, my download and upload speeds are super fast and I get a consistent connection with no drops and issues whatsoever around my apartment. Here is basically my experience with this product from the time I've had it. I'm able to use it in my backyard and still able to get great performance and speeds. PROS: - Easy and intuitive setup with the iOS/Android app - Supercharged fast AC wireless - Elegant and small design - Cable management - Consistent connection with no lag or dropped wireless signal - Device prioritization within Linksys App is a plus for my Smart TVs and game consoles - Rename devices connected and change name or device prioritization - One network offers both bands and devices connect to the appropriate band automatically CONS: - Linksys App parental controls don't let you block websites not friendly for minors, only lets you block specific sites and time online - Great app to manage it but the web-based settings are basic nor work sometimes Linksys App: The app used to set up the router is fast, easy, and intuitive. I love that the app allows you to see how many devices are connected at a glance. The fact that you still have access to your network remotely even though one isn't home is a great plus since I'm able to see what devices are connected and able to disconnect and block them from my phone. Has essential router settings like parental controls, MAC address filtering, guest network access, notifications when your node goes offline for whatever reason, built-in speed test, options to change port settings, and of course internet connection settings. In conclusion, anyone who wants fast, reliable, consistent wireless connection that works great without the need for a range extender this is an awesome option. If you purchase this router system I promise you that you won't regret it, you'll be very satisfied. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask me and I'll be more than happy to answer them.

Expanded WiFi

This is number 2 in my house. The 1st one is at the far end of my house. This 2nd one is in the middle of the house. Now I have wifi on my patio which is at the opposite end of the house.

Unreliable, and slower than AmpLiFi HD

I've tested Velop, Google WiFi, Orbi, and AMPLIFI HD. Velop can hit high speeds, but not reliably. Out of all the devices I tested, Velop is the only one that frequently dropped connections to my Dropcams for long periods at a time, several times a day. It also doesn't do well with walls, despite saying I placed the nodes perfectly. It gives very little feedback on where to put the devices. Just says it's good... doesn't give you a signal strength meter. It also doesn't let you change your subnet. It also requires a connection to the cloud. And it's the most expensive. AmpLiFi HD is the most reliable one I've tested and it does everything locally without "phoning home" to the cloud, which I appreciate. I've since returned the Velop.
Hi, We're sorry to hear about what happened and we regret that you've already returned the unit. What you have experienced with your Velop System is very uncommon and we could have tapped one of our Escalation Engineers to contact you and sort things out. Should you have questions or clarifications, don't hesitate to dial 800-986-0518 or send us an email at LinksysCares@linksys.com, anytime. Jay Linksys Support

Releeased too early?

After quite a bit of on-line research, I chose the Velop system. The initial unit install was flawless. Unit number two was placed at the far end of the house and also performed quite well. It was the third unit they gave me problems. After close to twos on the phone with Linksys support (which was very professional) we ended up reloading the firmware on the third unit. We finally had the entire system operational!! Loved it......that is unit my cable modem fell off of the air. I rebooted my Arris Docsis 3.0 modem and was unable to sync the Velop router. At this point not wanting to spend any more time on it, I boxed up the Velop system and plugged in my Asus MIMO. Sorry Linksys. Great idea but not ready for prime time.
Hi, Expect Better, We truly value your honest feedback. If you'd change your mind and give the Velop system another try, our Escalation Engineers will assist you in reconfiguring the nodes. Please email us at LinksysCares@linksys.com with your phone number and the link to this post for our reference. Irish Linksys Support

Can't integrate with other Linksys Routers

Good for the basic user. Can't integrate with my Linksys EA9500. Velop must be configured through app and not using conventional default IP address from a desktop. Can't add DHCP ranges or reserve DHCP leases. Only two LAN ports??! Really?? So I need to purchase a switch if I wanted to hardware multiple devices. I repackaged my three node kit and saved until a firmware patch or something is created to allow for better customized settings. If not I will sell it off to someone who doesn't need advanced settings like my parents or grandparents.
Hi, Jocamel, Your feedback is important to us. Your Velop is designed to be configured via mobile App. However, we can have one of our Escalation Engineers assist you should you want to manage the device via WEB UI and add the DHCP ranges or reserve DHCP leases. Also, we'll be looking into your challenge pertaining to integrating your Velop System with your existing EA9500 router. We'd be glad to answer your call at 800-986-0518 or send us an email at LinksysCares@linksys.com with your contact details and the link to this review. Jay Linksys Support
