Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work Had an older Velop system that was pretty good but would have to call support every few months for rebooting. Last call the person talked me into getting the new Velop, It was the MX12600 and it was way worse. Not sure how you can get an upgrade from the manufacturer and it is worse. Luckily I called on the last day for returns and getting my money back. Support was very good but if you have to call this much then not worth it. Plus I bought a ethernet hub and new Cat8 cabling to see if that helped so I spent way more than I should have. System is supposed to support over 7,000 sf house and I am in a 2400 sf house md this caused all kinds of issues with my devices not to mention angry family members who could not stream anything. New system from another manufacturer just installed is faster and working great No dead spots. Cannot recommend this product from Linksys. it's a dud. Sorry.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just awful I got this system several years ago when I moved into a big old house, thinking I would need a beefy system to get wifi throughout the house. It has been a nightmare since the beginning, and I've spent so many hours of my life on the phone with technical support trying to get it to work better to no avail. Weak and slow, intermittently doesn't work at all, nodes drop out...Couldn't get a refund or any replacement parts. Such a huge waste of money and worst of all my time

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will not stay connected Only had this system a little less than a week. It performed amazingly the first few days. The range of the signal was very strong (thus the additionally star). However, after the first 2 days, the wifi losses signal about 20 times or more per day. It's such a huge inconvenience

Rated 1 out of 5 by from zero visibility and control I made the mistake of buying a set of 6 of these, and they are terribly unreliable. The control app is an absolute joke. There is no way to control how the mesh should connect, to see what’s clients are connected or what the traffic looks like, and software updates are no longer being done…seems like this is an orphan product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have had these for a couple of years after I outgrew the device number allowed by my previous router. They work great and have consistant high speed transfer. I have read many people having troubles with speed on this product and I did as well at first. You have to remember that if you want high speed you need to be using Cat6 cables between the router and your modem as well as you have to have modern wifi support in the connecting device... otherwise you are just maxing out the speed the device or cable can handle and blaming it on the router. In two years, I have only had to reset this once and it was because of an ISP outage that was messing with the modem which then somehow made the router not want to connect back up to the modem until after a reboot.

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.

How many devices will the MX10600- Tri-Band AX5300 handle?

Asked by: Ajcujo
"Up to 50-100" doesn't really answer this question. Is it "up to 50-100 per node or per network" etc. I'm running 39 devices on my network now and I may be adding to it. So, if it's 50 devices then I may want to change my equipment. So your answer of "Up to 50-100", doesn't tell me much. If it's a bandwidth issue, then just say that.
