Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs a lot of work pan bug fixes The Speed is awesome but this Product needs a lot of work and fix some issues. The App sucks and can’t do much with it. It’s lacking a lot of features other venders have. For example being able to backup your configuration. That is huge. It would be nice OpenVPN service to get away from port forwarding. Firewall needs some work. More Security would be nice. Some kind of IPS and Virus protection would be a nice option but don’t if if affects the speed. Need to fix problems with losing the device details you entered manually if you reboot or clear the device list. The ARP table has some issues. Sometimes the device will disappear and you have to reset the device for it to show back up in the device list. I hope they fix a lot of issues I have seen. It’s a lot of money for the mesh routers and need to address the bugs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't believe I waited this long... ...but I'm glad I did. WiFi 6E is a game changer. Easy set up, didn't even need the second tower but I may try to put it on the perimeter somewhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from **DO NOT BUY THIS ROUTER** **DO NOT BUY THIS ROUTER** No kidding. DEVICE: Consistently ran 30-40% *slower* than Wi-Fi 5 router it was replacing - during days of careful testing. 2 weeks of far too many phone calls + countless hours with 'Linksys Tech Support' to even get to close to its rated speed or my ISPs speed Finally, all parties including Sr. Tech Support gave up: there is no fix. They agree clearly a firmware or hardware flaw. Horrifying. AXE8400 is Linksys' top-of-the-line fastest best most expensive router! I have returned it for full refund. Never again. LINKSYS FRONT LINE TECH 'SUPPORT': ... is an *abomination* - terrible. On every call any issue beyond essentially 'is it turned on?' level troubleshooting must be escalated after 30-90 minutes of going in circles. Escalation cannot happen on that call but only with a promised scheduled call-back. But 4 different times that call-back *never* happened - blown off. So must call front line back and virtually start over to get back to Level 2. E.G. separate issue: they didn't even know that their own 6GHz band WILL NEVER AND CAN'T EVER work with a Windows 10 PC. Once actually reaching Level 2 they do work hard and do a decent job of helping. But still had to give up. I'm not a nut or have an axe to grind. I am a 40+ year veteran and professional in software, firmware and hardware design, architecture, production, support - from coder to CTO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super simple to setup in minutes Super simple to setup. I used Linksys wifi a long time ago. It was hours on the phone getting it setup. Fast forward to today . . . I got the VELOP system, downloaded the app, and in minutes my whole house was setup. It is by far, the easiest setup I've ever had for any system. There's no more dead spots. Now the whole house has fast gigablast internet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish I could turn on and of 5Ghz signal This mesh system is very easy to setup, But most people have tech that needs a constant 2.4 GHz signal to activate ie smart lights in particular. Once turn on it will normally latch on to the signal it needs. I have a Sonos smart speaker that needs a 2.4 GHz signal and was able to find it when I set it up. So if Linksys can add a way to turn off the 5Ghz signal to allow for these type of products to be added to a mesh would make this a 5 star Mesh!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new duel node Atlas Max is very user friendly. Fairly easy setup. Also, it does a great job analyzing the environment and improving download speed from each node.

will this work with the M1 Max MacBook Pro 2021 OS Ventura, is it friendly with APFS files, is the mx 4200 work with this same MacBook, mx4200 USB seems it won't format APFS just HFS+ or EX FAT?

Asked by: bikeman5
You will not have any problems with any type of files with this router. Especially with a Mac or any Apple products with this mesh system. Apple products will take advantage of the Wi-Fi 6 better than any other computers
