Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Product with easy setup & excellent futures Load App, Plug it in, and its off and going. Really didn't expect this to have a signal so well to be able to replace older slower access point on each of our 3 floors, and at that its fast and stable. The Guest WiFi is great for friends and family while keeping our private network safe (and out of site). It has Parental Controls and you can even prioritize devices (like gaming PC's or consoles). It looks nice too, fits right into a room well and runs silent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Router The Linksys MX5 Velop is the best router I have ever used. I plugged it in and followed the instructions and the router set itself up to all my connections. The Linksys MX5 is fast and reliable. Between myself and my family we have had over 20 devices going at once and this router handles all the internet connections without any problems. Also it is different looking as you do not have the antennaes. It is a heavey duty piece of needed equipment for me. I download movies, engineering drawing and various other types of files. The download speed is steady and fast. I would recommend this product to anyone that requires internet connection through their entire house.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice Looking Router I received a single Velop MX5 AX5300 from Linksys in return for an honest review. Here are my findings: Pros: I like the design. It is aesthetically appealing and goes well with the family room décor. There is no array of blinking lights, just a single LED whose color indicates the status. Setup was fairly easy with no big surprises except that a smartphone or tablet is the preferred device for setup. There is a web interface available which I used after the initial setup. The device to router speeds along with better range are a welcome improvement over my old Wi-Fi router. Cons: There are a few things I like to do in terms of network management. I have about 30 home automation devices (plugs, light switches, personal assistants, etc.) which I prefer to be on a separate network. With my old router, I accomplished this by setting up a second guest network to segregate these devices and I specified this network to operate on the 2.4GHz band. The MX5 allows only a single guest network and one cannot specify what band(s) it is allowed to operate on. With the web based app, the Icon and Device Name can be changed for easy identification of devices on the non-guest network. However, neither one can be changed on the guest network. This makes identifying my 30 home automation devices nearly impossible when using the web interface. All you get are things like “Network Device” along with a generic Icon. Oddly, using the Android mobile app, the guest network Icon can be changed but still cannot change the device name. When the Icon is changed using the mobile app, the change appears in the web app. Go figure. A call to the Linksys customer service confirmed this functionality is correct!? There is no backup and restore function for the router settings. The mobile app for managing the router is a bit buggy in places but functions properly for the most part. Final Thoughts: I would like to see an option for a black colored one. This would fit my décor even better. On the first day of operation after I completed my setup, all of my home automation devices dropped offline within an hour. Rebooting the router brought them back online but they dropped offline again a little while later. I rebooted the router once again to bring them back online but within an hour, they all dropped offline again. At that point, I reverted back to my old router. My experience with devices dropping offline seem to be shared by many on the Linksys Community support page. I think I will wait for a few firmware update cycles along with some indication that the devices dropping offline problem has been fixed. At that point I will give it another try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MX5 Great new additions. I was currently using the Velop 2 unit whole house system so I am very familiar with the equipment as well as admin and installation features of the Linksys smart app so setup went smooth. Stand alone the MX5 performed to expectations. 13 to 15 devices (active) on the network (cameras, multiple tablets TV's etc.) had no noticeable issues. Range was somewhat impacted but I added the previous nodes and further extended the range to the outdoor areas as well. The addition of 4 Gigabit LAN ports and addition of a USB 3.0 port adds flexibility and is a much welcome addition. This unit is larger than previous units but seems to run cooler and is not a distraction to the eye. I would recommend this product based on my experience with performance and reliability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This one gets a 10 rating! I finally received the MX5 after some confusion on when it actually shipped. It was well worth the extra wait. This Velop AX is a monster. I couldn't believe the size of this thing. I hooked it up to replace my master node on an exsisting home Velop wifi system. It installed fawlessly except I had to re-set my other nodes to slave off the new mode, but that was expected. I really like the new AX. The range is much better alone but when the other nodes are added, it is superb. This one gets a 10 rating in my book.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from FRUSTRATED!!!! MX5 arrived 11/22/19. Installed and since that time has had intermittent connection. Performed ALL trouble shooting and still issue. Called Linksys Support - call back took over an hour of waiting - only to be told they don't support the MX5 and was transferred. After being on hold 1 hour 38 minutes, hung up. What a waste of time!!!! Returning this piece of JUNK and going back to my old router that has MUCH better signal strength, coverage, and connectivity and doesn't cost and arm and a leg!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Coverage Set up was easy with the app. I was also able to add a older Linksys node AC2200 from 2016 to increase my coverage and link speed allthough it really was not necessary. I have good coverage with approximately 12 devices connected. Streaming on line content is good. There is a scan feature in the app if you feel the need to have the node look for a better WiFi channel. I did not need to do any tweeks to this system, all worked good out of the box. Have been using for about 2 weeks now with no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MX5 is a beast! Upon opening the MX5 Velop I noticed the size increase as compared to my existing Linksys nodes. I also noticed the addition of of 4 LAN ports and a USB port which is a great addition/ improvement allowing for direct connect such as a printer or mass storage device via USB port. Set up was relatively easy previous experience with similar Linksys systems was helpful. Standalone the performance was as expected and provided equal or better coverage and a noticeable increase in speed. I did incorporate my existing nodes and have increased my coverage robustly throughout the house as well as large portions of front and back yard. I currently run between 12 and 20 devices on the network including cameras and smart switches and other wireless devices and have no performance or reliability issues. I would recommend this product.
