Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I got this a couple days ago to replace a new installation of an Orbi mesh network for my house. Basically the Orby had become nonfunctional because of conflicts and it’s security software, excluding every day devices. I guess it’s part of the problem was the multiple devices and the complexity of the system. I hooked up the MX10 with one satellite, immediately got the same area covered, including going through stucco walls which are essentially large antennas That create tremendous interference. So far so good, set up was pretty good. Took longer than the net gear, took a couple tries, but all in all in about 10 minutes more. I’ll keep posting if problems arise.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from One of the most frustrating experiences. I bought this from Linksys and received it today. The initial setup is a bit of a nightmare. The parent node installed after more than a dozen attempts. The child node still hasn't installed after calling Linksys technical support and holding for 90 minutes, only to be disconnected and after being online with chat for over an hour so far. I would stay away from this product and purchase from a competitor. For a $750 wireless router, setup should be easier, but difficult setup would be better than impossible setup, which is exactly what I'm experiencing. I never had this issue with my Orbi mesh setup nor my Google WiFi mesh setup. This is simply rubbish.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NOT WHAT I EXPECTED!!! I can't believe what the reviews are saying! I love Linksys! However, the speeds I'm getting aren't great!!!! I thought these were suppose to work great with the MR9600... NOT!!!! My speeds were reduced after I connected them. Yes, I could use the MX10 without the MR9600. However, I need a router with USB options. I'm returning the MX10 tomorrow. In addition, the MX10 keeps disconnecting!!! THAT'S BS!!! SO DISAPPOINTED!!!! Honestly, I got best range from the Linksys EA9500 Max-Stream™ AC5400 MU-MIMO Gigabit WiFi Router. Linksys... I'm counting on you. The Nighthawk is starting to call me! I've been a loyal customer for over 15 yrs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bravo! Well played, Linksys. Excellent job! First of all, this is an excellent product. Period. The setup within the app was easy. I've noticed the WiFi bandwidth is significantly faster on my iPhone 11 Pro. The routing is also noticeably faster. And as a customer of the MR8300 where the USB drive did not work (and I ripped the MR9000 to shreds in another review), the USB drive WORKS on the MX10. The authentication option on the external drive (USB) was a nice surprise. This way, not everyone with WiFi access will have access to the USB drive with my personal files on it. The form factor is exactly the same as the previous Velop routers, but MUCH BIGGER. I really wish they made this version in black, but I'm okay with the color now that it's been up for a few hours. Did I mention the speed is incredible? Well, the range is also incredible. I switched from one MR8300 and THREE Velop nodes to a SINGLE MX10. No kidding. I even bought the 2-Pack so I'm sitting here wondering what the heck to do with the second MX10. I would absolutely recommend this to a friend or family, but only if it's within your budget. I can't believe these things cost so much, but now that I have everything in operation, I'm getting a sense of real value here. If I was to make a recommendation to Linksys, that would be to get the Linksys services going ASAP (Aware and Shield) with this router because it's clearly missing right now. Also, offer this in black. The white doesn't work well with my living room (or any other room). Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great wifi has never been better I was dismayed when my apple AirPort Extreme wireless router failed, and went into panic when I found out Apple has got out of the router business. I started reading the reviews on mesh systems and went through the reviews. Started thinking I wanted the Eero from Amzon after all their stuff does just work but I wasn't sure after all this is new business for them, Then I looked at the google wifi and again not their core business and found recommendation for the Netgear Orbi which looked to fill the void. I was ready to by this thinking Netgear has been in this for a while then I checked out Linksys because about 20 years ago when I first put wifi in my house before the cable company supported it I had a Linksys router. Boy when you start comparing the Netgear Orbo to the Linksys Velop you really see some brand loyalty in the reviews. In the end the MX10 is pricey but with 4 kids and about 1,000 devices the internet is not going away and I work from home so I need it. I am very happy and the built in USB port to share a printer and a storage device did it for me. The system was easy to install literals 15 minutes with the update and all you have to enter is wireless network name and password. I flipped the setting to bridge mode on my cable company supplied modem/router and like magic 75+ devices started to join the network. I named it the same with the same password so I didn't have to establish connections with all devices. Thanks for making this work Linksys, and I understand all the followers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speed and easy setup Time to upgrade my wifi5 setup. Chose the mesh so that it will reach my garage and 2 floor house. Setup was fast and easy just using your cellphone. I did ethernet backhaul so that I won't lose any bandwidth. I'm liking it so far. I have gig speed and iPhone 11 pro max is hitting 850 mbps standing next to the access point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, I like it a lot The setup was good, although not as smooth as I had envisioned. My first issue was communication between the Velop and the modem. They seemed to be a bit shy as strangers tend to be. I had to power cycle the modem three times to get them talking. The Velop app pauses for 2 minutes for the power cycle on the modem, on my third attempt, I plugged in the modem at the 1 minute mark, giving the modem an extra minute of alone time (initializing) before the Velop would try to connect. The connection was made, whether because of my early plug in or it just needed 3 power cycles, the world will never know. Once that was done, everything went fine with the Velop, the remaining issues were device connections. My Apple products all connected without issue; I used the same SSID and Password. My Nest Thermostat connected fine. The Nest Protects had issues. They would connect and disconnect randomly; a few hours on, an hour off etc.. I tried a few things, but nothing really worked. However, after a couple days, the Nest Protects and the Velop became fast friends and there are no further issues. My old DropCam Pros would not connect. I had to remove them from my account (very important to remove them), find a computer that still runs a 32 bit OS, and plug them in to the ancient computer and go through the setup process as if they are new. The NestCam connected fine. I have a newer Yamaha Receiver and Samsung TV, about 4 months old. Both needed to be logged in again. For my ADT security system, I had to power cycle the Gateway. Canon printer connected fine. Rachio sprinkler connected fine. Netatmo connected fine. Everything is up and connected without further issues. The app is great and easy to manage. I use it to manage two separate networks, one at home and one at the office. Linksys needs to add some icons for Apple Watch, Weather Station, etc.. The only bad issue I found with the app, is that I did the sweep thing to clear devices, and it said it would not clear my customizations. Wrong, it cleared them. Bummer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Real Experience with the MX10 System I have a 3600 sq ft two story home with basement. The floors are poured concrete, the cable modem is downstairs in a corner office. Main living space is upstairs and the home does not have wiring for ethernet. I have been using an Apple 2TB Time Capsule for some years and it has worked amazingly well but is no longer supported and I can no longer even configure it with airport utility. I have three ring cameras, 2 nest thermostats, 3 laptop computers, 2 iphones, 1 ipad, smart TV, apple tv, 3 dlink cameras, several WEMO switches and Amazon Echo. The extreme distance devices such as the camera in the basement and the ring devices on the perimeter of the property were at the limit of reception. I tried the google mesh system with three nodes and it was horrible, setup was a nightmare, signal strength and throughput were disappointing. After researching numerous systems I came down to the Orbi and Linksys systems. I opted for the Linksys and was able to find a new in box from a reseller on ebay for a decent discount. The units are identical, essentially two MX5300 systems. I installed one to replace the time capsule connected to my Spectrum Cable Modem operating in bridge mode to bypass the internal wifi of the modem. The linksys app on the iphone is a little unstable and had to be installed a couple of times, sometimes the buttons seem to freeze, but it could be that it is communicating with the linksys cloud site and there could be some lag. I would suggest that they put in a status bar to let user know that it is thinking and not frozen. The speed downstairs next to the node is 235 mbps download which is fantastic. Next I installed the second unit in node mode upstairs by the front door. The setup froze up and I had to try a couple of times but it eventually installed without issue and the app has the ability to see all your connected devices and which node they are connected with. I ran the channel optimizer a couple of times and after 24 hours I can say that I am absolutely delighted. The remote perimeter devices have very strong signals, I can get over 200 mbps standing at the street a couple hundred feet from the units. I have full signal in rooms that were very marginal before. It is very easy to find yourself with a couple dozen connected device without realizing and while I wish I had installed cat cable in my home, i have to live with that choice and the linksys system allows all of these devices to communicate with strong signals and very fast throughput. They are heavy and solidly made, the hardware seems to be first rate. I have always considered linksys top notch in terms of quality and technology and this system did not let me down. I was going to add a third node in the garage but that will not necessary with the two that I have. The app is growing on me and I would recommend letting the app automatically do most of the configurations and not try to get too manual with the setup.
