Very Pleased!


So far the app for my Velop Mesh Network has been perfect!!! Love the easy and straightforward control I have over each device connected! I've identified and labeled each one and know the details about their connection as well. The only improvement I could think of is if there were a way to monitor the traffic for each and every device, so to avoid intrusion! I was also able to use it to work around for an issue with an install where I had to force one device to 2.4GHz in order to install the other. I was concerned when I got Velop network that I wouldn't be able to do that type of thing… So many said there's limited control using the app. Not for what I'm doing... I have a Smart home with almost 30 devices connected! So far so good!

Pleasantly surprised


I read a lot of negative things online about the app when I was researching mesh wifi systems. Overall the Velop still seemed to be the best option, but the price was too much for me. Found a refurb on woot for over $200 off and gave it a shot, and I’m very happy with it. The app for setup was great. I did have to look up a few advanced things on the forums, but I expect that—the app is, and should be, made for non-tech people. The average person isn’t going to use wired Ethernet backhaul, but I have Ethernet prewired in my home, so that was important to me, and I found what I needed with a simple google search. Ideally it would be great if the app did have more advanced settings, and I really wish it would show whether the child nodes are connected via wifi or Ethernet, but other than that, it’s an excellent app.

Easy set up and can determine which 2.4 and 5

Security view

I bought the Linksys Velop .Set up was super easy just connect to your modem and then follow the prompts. Next I went around and connected all my Internet devices. It can easily distinguish between which devices can handle 5G and which devices need to be on 2.4. I have a lot of home automation that can only work on 2.4. This router is awesome. I highly recommend. My speed tests was max download and upload that my internet provided for me. I love the parent controls. I can see which devices are connected and can set up guidelines for each device. The range is great and I can be inside or out side my house and it flawless. Thank you for this Linksys Velop great router
