Rated 1 out of 5 by from AVOID AT ALL COST I own 8 nodes, purchased over the course of 2 years. These things are an absolute pile. The app is horrendous, and the nodes don't work. Often nodes drop and disconnect, often multiple times per hour. Other times nodes disconnect but the light on top stays blue (as if it's connected) though in the app it says the node is offline, the node then doesn't work until you restart it manually. When you have 8 nodes and 7 of them randomly disconnect but lie to you about it, it becomes incredibly frustrating. Save yourself the headache AVOID THESE AT ALL COST. Run a Ethernet cable and call it a day way more cost effective way way less frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Near Flawless System When the Velop system came out a few years ago it was playing catch up with other mesh systems, but that has change. The App has grown by leaps and bounds and the team at Linksys have been absolutely crushing it with bug fixes and updates. With the rollout of Wifi6 capabilities the Velop system has become a leader in home mesh networking systems. I have no major gripes with them system except the fact that I very much wish the power cord inputs would be swapped to USB C - its a silly nit to pick at but hey its 2020 and nearly 2021 and with a device that is absolutely future proof for the next 5 years I really wish it had more modern connections for power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Whole House Mesh System! I was so excited when I read Up to 8100 square feet, 120 + Devices and AX4200 up to 4.2 Gbps. I thought finally, a product that will have the capacity to meet all my needs. In fact, I even ran downstairs to show my quadriplegic wife. I must have been gushing with enthusiasm as I read off the specification because my wife responded to me by calling me a "nerd". LOL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The MX12600 is the Most Stable Velop Upgrade Yet! The MX12600 is easy to setup and out performs the previous generation Velpo Systems I have used. The WiFi range from these nodes is incredible and covers far beyond my property line. All (25) of my devices connected flawlessly to the network without a hitch. The network is stable and speeds are consistent. SETUP Setup was straight forward and easy to follow using the Linksys Smart WiFi App. I plugged one node in at a time, followed the instructions and done! The nodes connected within the timeframe the app stated and I had no issues during the initial setup. I changed the WiFi name to my previous SSID and all of my (25) devices connected fine. ALTERANTE SETUP SUGGESTION Initially, I connected the MX12600 mesh nodes to my MR9600 mesh router, because they are both part of the Velop family. But I had less than favorable results. I called Linksys Customer Service with my issues and they explained that the issues I had were caused from the MR9600 no being fully compatible, being it was a Dual-Band router and the MX12600’s were Tri-Band. They explained that, if I was to use the MR9600 as a child node, instead of the home node, I might have better results. So, If you choose to incorporate the MR9600, use it as a child node only. I chose to take the MR9600 completely out of the setup and not incorporate into my setup. Using only the MX12600, all of my issues subsided. OBSERVATION The MX12600 has been connected in my home for about a week and I am very happy with the results. I don’t currently have any WiFi 6 devices to test, but all of my older devices are solidly connected. Speed tests I have run are consistent and stable. And, copying files to my NAS over the network have never been faster. Everything is working perfectly and I have no issues. I look forward to testing this with a WiFi 6 device as soon as I can. It’s the perfect upgrade and option for future proofing my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome range! Super easy setup! This is my second velop system and I have to say it just keeps getting better! First off the setup cannot be any simpler when using the linksys app. Plug in the first node wait for the light color changes, place the next node and before you know it you're up and running. Doesn't really get any easier! The next thing that I love is the increase in range. If you are replacing the previous velop system the first thing you will notice is the node size increase. They look and feel much more substantial which has to be what leads to much better range. I can now stay connected not only everywhere in my home, but also clear to the end of my street I still have signal on my devices! The amount of devices that we have using wifi in my home just keeps increasing and are being used more now than ever(Thanks COVID)! The AX4200 seems to handle all these devices with absolute ease speed is great, no dropouts and again the range is really great. Speeds are kept consistent on all devices including my son's new gaming computer which only survives by eating bandwidth like popcorn!! While not slowing down or dropping my wife's work meeting's and skype calls. I live in an rural setting so security for my network is not a real issue but the Ax4200 offers great protection. There are many options for protecting your wifi. If you are like me you are just looking for a router that is reliable and works everywhere in the house. That is what the AX4200 mesh system does! I hope this review helps anyone that may be looking for a reliable router with great operating range and easy setup make a decision!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Easy Setup Just got these and they were so easy to setup. Once you have the app downloaded from your app store, you power up and commect the first node to your router. Then use the app to locate the SSID of your wireless network, enter the credentials and your in. Then its a matter of placing the ither nodes amd letting the app do the work. Took maybe 20 minutes total, including the time it took for the app the configure nodes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wi-Fi 6 ready great Mesh system for big houses I really like how the setup went, smoothly and easily done. I set them up in a very big house with concrete walls, I am still going to need 3 more to cover everything as I tried using other devices to cover the missing areas but they don't work as smoothly as the Mesh system, the instructions say to put one every 2 rooms apart, I knew I won't be able to cover the first floor of the house, but I thought with only 3, I could cover with full signal all the second floor, which wasn't the case, the furthest part you get good signal but not the full I wanted it to be for streaming. The devices are big but they look nice and stylish so that works, there are some supports they sell to put them on the wall, but I didn't really need them, but they include 4 ethernet nodes so that is a good thing if you also need to connect multiple wired devices, so you don't need a switch, these ones also come with USB so I will be trying to set up a NAS in the future and see how it works within the entire network. Wi-Fi 6 ready and working, using it with multiple devices and they are all working perfectly, I am not getting Wi-Fi calls dropped or paused while walking between areas, which was my first priority using a Mesh system. I recommend not using other devices like repeaters or bridges as they interfere with these, they work but not the best, I would just suggest getting more individual nodes as you need or another pack of 3 of the same model for the whole network to work very smooth, check with ISP provider as sometimes their modem should be restarted to get the best speeds, it's not the Mesh system but usually the ISP modem that has issues regarding this matter. Overall I recommend this system for big houses, perfect to connect multiple devices via Wi-Fi or wired, getting the best speeds with Wi-Fi 6.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good coverage, but difficult set up I received this new version of the Velop tri-band (Wifi 6) to test, and am comparing it to my prior Velop tri-band (Wifi AC) set up. First impression: Jeez, the nodes are a LOT larger than the prior generation. The 4 ethernet ports is fantastic, and may mean I can get rid of a powered ethernet switch I use for a few of my hardwired devices. However, I miss the old cable management that was built into the old nodes which hid the power and ethernet plugs. Set up: I was sadly disappointed for the first time with a Velop device. I followed the in-app instructions to replace my old parent node with a new one (essentially you reset all of the old ones, and start a new network with the same name and password). Unfortunately, the process was not smooth. The phone and app could not identify the node to be set up despite multiple repeated tries over an hour or two. Finally, the first node set up, and functioned well. The second node took about 4 tries to connect and set up, and also functioned well. I waited about a day, and the third node set up immediately on the first try, without issue. Coverage: I have a 2 story house with a basement, and on just 1 node, the coverage was at least adequate everywhere. With 3 nodes, I have no issue with strong signal throughout. I may consider putting one of my prior generation Velop nodes in the basement to ensure good coverage. Speed: I currently have 44 (!) devices connected. I was able to get the maximum rated speeds via wifi, which is better than on my old mesh set up. Even with a computer streaming an HD video, I was still able to get 100-110 Mbps, which is also better than with my old network. Unfortunately, I do not yet have any Wifi 6 devices to test that aspect of the technology and speeds. Bottom line: I don't know if the set up issues were due to the phone app or the hardware, but once up and running, the mesh network is stable, fast, and handles a large number of connected devices flawlessly. Hopefully my issues were a fluke. I will tentatively recommend the newest Linksys Velop tri-band mesh network.
