Rated 1 out of 5 by from Run for Your Life, Do Not Buy Imagine that every time you click to a new website, you have to wait 30-45 seconds for the first elements to start being delivered. Once the download starts to happen, it happens quickly. But the latency is insane! (for older folks, think back to the days of dial-up modems). I purchased this router directly from Linksys at the recommendation of the support person who could not solve problems with my older Linksys router. I estimate I have spent 80 hours over the past 90 days attempting to get our wifi functioning properly. It has never worked properly for a solid two weeks before forcing me to spend another hour or two with support. Using Speedtest, I can see that the download and upload speeds are excellent. But even here, the download + upload speed test doesn't kick off for 30-45 seconds (or more). Our house is a single level, wood-frame house with less than 1,500 square feet. This is far smaller than the promised maximum reach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Lot To Like We've been running a WiFi5 AC2200 Velop mesh system for >5 years. It has been solidly reliable. We recently upgraded to StarLink internet from a bonded dSL line that caps at 20Mbps, and all of a sudden, the lack of throughput was very noticeable. I didn't want to get rid of our existing mesh infrastructure but wanted something that would work with it. I was relieved to see that newer WiFi6 Velop nodes were backward compatible with the WiFi5 nodes. If all I was doing was setting up this MX4200 node, setup would have been a breeze. It just fired right up and even connected to the net in DHCP mode automatically. It updated itself to the latest firmware and we were in business. I had issues with factory resetting the satellite nodes and my FireWalla firewall, but after everything was setup, it has been smooth sailing so far. My signal has improved by 50% to the nodes and throughput has jumped from about 20-50% to 80%. It's hard to argue with those kinds of numbers. If you own a Velop Mesh system, don't throw the money away. They're a dime a dozen on eBay. Just upgrade your system by adding a few Wifi 6 or 6E nodes to the network.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from By far the worst routers I’ve ever used I previously had the whwh03’s which had a very basic flaw - they would keep dropping my internet connection (ppoe) every few hours, constantly interrupting zoom calls, video streaming etc. To be clear, my clients are all still connected to wifi, the velop just disconnects from my isp from 2-3 minutes. I thought linksys must have improved quality on the new ones so I paid an exorbitant price for the ax4200 (2x kit) hoping they would no longer have this issue. Wow was I wrong ! It seems linksys does not really care about what it’s selling at all. If I connect my isp provided basic router directly my connection uptime is days and days with no disconnect (basically it doesn’t disconnect). If I use the velops my maximum connection uptime to isp is a few hours. I disabled any advanced features such as HomeKit, IPv6, node steering, etc hoping it would help the situation. I even disconnected the second node to check this. Tried multiple cat6 cables. No luck. If I bust out any of my previous cheap routers and use them instead I get no problems with Connection uptime (even tried an old 7 year old router to check and it maintains a better connection to my isp). So it’s definitely a velop issue. Additionally I have written to customer support via the app multiple times with absolutely no response. Not even a generic response. Linksys really doesn’t care about this product and I’ll be moving to one of the competitors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from HomeKit: slows speeds & drops devices I bought this about a year ago at this point and I have three across my home with single SSID & HomeKit integration turn on. On average I have 27 connected devices between cameras and tvs, etc. all speeds are slower with HomeKit integration turned on…ya know, the whole point of buying this specific router. Support has me constantly try turning it off, telling me it slows down the router. Once you start using HomeKitSecureVideo it constantly drops these devices, even though they’re all between 1 & 10 feet away. Don’t buy this router if your a HomeKit power user, only but if your a regular user or do not need the HomeKit integration. I’m switching to synology after this frustration.

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.

What size barrel connector fits the power socket? I bought a couple different sizes, but they are all loose or won't fit. 5.5x2.5 seems a little loose. I am powering each mesh node through a dedicated APC 12V UPS (CP12142LI.) Works well but loose conns

Hi! It is recommended to use the router’s own power supply. For further assistance, please contact our support hotline or email us at, so we can discuss properly.
