Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor performance Bought this 3 node kit 3 months ago and it worked great just long enough that i couldn't bring it back to Best Buy, I constantly have problems with WIFI internet dropping. Tech support is in another country so its hard to understand them. I'm trying to get another set sent to me but they keep wanting to try different things. Paid $499 for junk

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Faster WiFi; no exFAT support A two-node mesh setup greatly improved coverage and speed. Only drawback is that it lacks support for exFAT, leaving FAT32 the only file system with native support across OS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Upgraded to add WIFI 6 support and ext range. Upgraded my Velop mesh system by adding this node as the new parent node. Had a few difficulties at first as the previous parent node refused to reset but tech support got me through it. Ony hiccup is one child node still refuses to come online although its RJ45 port works fine, it just won't come online for wifi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Set up child nodes It is very hard for me to set up your products. If a set up of a child node fails I can’t return to prior screen. I have to turn my phone off completely, then turn phone back on and start process again. I live in semi rural area and my internet is not the best. Now that I have all the child nodes set up I am satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Step Up For Expanded Coverage I recently purchased a Linksys MR9600 Router for my home; but the signal was not quite strong enough to cover my backyard. I added the MX4200 in about 5 minutes and got the added coverage I needed to access my network from my patio. I even found a simple mounting bracket on Amazon to ensure it's up and out of the way. No mush; no fuss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Velop Twi-band Yet From Linksys Purchased four nodes to replace my two year old Ac2200 mesh system. The speed is faster and there are no buffering lapses. Highly recommend the new Wi-Fi units.

How many nodes can you add to this system, is there a limit.

Asked by: Turk
I’m not sure. I quit using it and replaced it with a Tp-Link Deco MESH system.

Can i configure the network to only 2.4G temporarily to load devices that require that (and copy from iPhone WifI connection set to 2.4 also?  Once i have loaded  them, then activate 5.0G?

Asked by: Bert R
I’ve had this issue trying to connect smart devices that only use the 2.4g band, and although you can turn off the 5G band I’ve had success just adding these devices manually. You should have the option of adding them manually from the respective apps . This allows you to add the basically merges the smart device wifi with yours. Try adding the device manually by selecting this option when setting up the WiFi for that device the device will send out its own WiFi signal and you’ll have to connect to that WiFi. Then once your phone is connected it’ll connect to your home WiFi. For example if it’s a smart plug say an enbrighten brand you’ll see enbrighten as an option in WiFi settings on your phone during the process , connect to it (the menu will give you the password) and then move back to the app and it will automatically connect to your WiFi. Seems complicated but it’s easier and less troublesome then turning off 5G band then connecting devices then turning it back on. I’ve done that and sometimes kicks the devices off . Hope this helps

Can I connect more that one USB device (Disk/Printer) to the "Linksys Velop MX4000 Series WiFi 6 System" with a suitable USB hub?

Asked by: FredNet
Sure. I have an 11 port USB hub and 9 of them have accessories attached. I no longer use the Linksys router, but they are all pretty much the same. Wi-fi is Wi-fi.

Will an MX-4200 unit work with the two MX-4000 units I already have to expand my coverage area? Thx

Asked by: Saints
I don't know but I doubt it. I called Linksys to see if I could add some routers to my AX4200 to create a MESH system, but could not. I haven't used my Linksys router in a year or so, as the one I got from Spectrum works a bit better.
