Performing a Speed Check is a good way to find out if you are getting the level of service provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).  This feature is available for both local and Linksys server logins.

This article will show you how to run a speed check on your Linksys Velop or Linksys Mesh Router using the Linksys app.


Step 1:
Log in to the Linksys app dashboard.  
If you are using an iOS device, click here.  If you are using an Android™ device, click here.

Step 2:
If you are using an iOS device, on the Dashboard tap the Go button.  If you are using an Android device, tap the Menu User-added image icon at the upper-left corner of the screen and tap on Speed Check.

NOTE:  To test the speed of a device that has wireless security enabled, use the WPA2™-Personal encryption option to obtain accurate test results.

After the speed test, the following results will show:
  • Download - the speed rate at which internet content is transferred to your router.
  • Upload - the speed rate at which how quickly you can upload content to the internet.
  • Ping (latency) - measures, in milliseconds (ms), the amount of time it takes data to travel from your ISP’s servers to your network.
  • Results - a brief description of the overall result of the speed test.
You may run a speed test again by tapping Test again.
