Rated 5 out of 5 by from Installs and Works Great I received the Velop Whole Home Wi-Fi 2 pack yesterday. This was to replace a router and wifi extender that were about 4 years old. This was the easiest wifi router I have ever installed. All of the installation is done via your cell phone. It took under 15 minutes to install the 2 units. I have a 4,200 sq ft 2 story house and the coverage is fantastic in every part of it. The Velop definitely increased the speed of my main PC (which is plugged straight in to an ethernet port on the main unit) and in my case doubled the speed on all of my other wifi devices that we use in the other story of the house. I give a big thumbs up for this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extreme Power Small Size LOVE LOVE LOVE This amazing new router! First off even the box and the way it was packaged so neatly even made me love it even more. It's such a powerful router in such a small form factor. It looks so nice placed anywhere you decide to call it it's home. Setup of this router was a breeze using the Linksys Smart Wifi App and only took under about 5 minutes to get my new network up and running. The speed I experience with this new device is beyond my expectations as well as the range of coverage I have with it. I've never been so satisfied with a product I would highly recommend this router to anyone and everyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not stable - look at other options I purchased this 2 weeks ago from Best Buy. Setup was straightforward, although it took a bit for the 2nd node to sync. The performance is lacking horribly on this. I have a 1GB fibre connection to my home, and many devices were unable to achieve 100Mb with a 20 ft line of sight connection. Our previous 6 yr old Netgear Nighthawk performed much better (450 Mbps) . We have on average, 16 devices connected at any given time. The 2nd node seems to interfere with the primary node, as many of our devices connect to the primary node on another floor of our home, compared to the 2nd node only a few feet away. I am returning this today for something that can provide a stable, fast connection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Innovative design and size. Product arrived very well packaged. Minimal paperwork/instructions included but not really required since App is easy to use and self explanatory. You can only set up the Velop system via the Linkys Smart WiFi iOS or Android apps. My setup was with two nodes know as parent (hooked to the cable modem) and child (the other node). Overall installation was fairly simple it took me about half an hour for setup and another half hour to set up all my devices. The nodes are small well designed with great ventilation they run much more cooler than my existing products. App is user friendly and provides easy access to monitor and interface with the devices.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Releeased too early? After quite a bit of on-line research, I chose the Velop system. The initial unit install was flawless. Unit number two was placed at the far end of the house and also performed quite well. It was the third unit they gave me problems. After close to twos on the phone with Linksys support (which was very professional) we ended up reloading the firmware on the third unit. We finally had the entire system operational!! Loved it......that is unit my cable modem fell off of the air. I rebooted my Arris Docsis 3.0 modem and was unable to sync the Velop router. At this point not wanting to spend any more time on it, I boxed up the Velop system and plugged in my Asus MIMO. Sorry Linksys. Great idea but not ready for prime time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed Bought this 8/1 for a 2,400 sq. ft. house. The main unit (connected to router) is on the second floor. The second unit is on 1st floor within 18 ft from main unit. The third unit is on the 1st floor within 20 ft from second unit (one wall separating). The one connect to the router is fine but the satellites are not dependable. They work most of the time but drop all the time. I have moved these to different rooms and places throughout the room. Can not get dependability. Very disappointed in a system at this price. There is also no way of testing the connections except lengthy trial and error. Very poor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't integrate with other Linksys Routers Good for the basic user. Can't integrate with my Linksys EA9500. Velop must be configured through app and not using conventional default IP address from a desktop. Can't add DHCP ranges or reserve DHCP leases. Only two LAN ports??! Really?? So I need to purchase a switch if I wanted to hardware multiple devices. I repackaged my three node kit and saved until a firmware patch or something is created to allow for better customized settings. If not I will sell it off to someone who doesn't need advanced settings like my parents or grandparents.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable, and slower than AmpLiFi HD I've tested Velop, Google WiFi, Orbi, and AMPLIFI HD. Velop can hit high speeds, but not reliably. Out of all the devices I tested, Velop is the only one that frequently dropped connections to my Dropcams for long periods at a time, several times a day. It also doesn't do well with walls, despite saying I placed the nodes perfectly. It gives very little feedback on where to put the devices. Just says it's good... doesn't give you a signal strength meter. It also doesn't let you change your subnet. It also requires a connection to the cloud. And it's the most expensive. AmpLiFi HD is the most reliable one I've tested and it does everything locally without "phoning home" to the cloud, which I appreciate. I've since returned the Velop.

*Based on the maximum speed that data (Phy rate) can move across a wireless link while alternating between the two 5GHz radios in each node. Each node has three Wi-Fi radios – one 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi radio and two 5 GHz Wi-Fi radios. Each 5 Ghz radio has throughput of 867 Mbps. Nodes will alternate between the two 5 GHz radios for each separate connection, providing 100% seamless Wi-Fi to your network. Specifications are subject to change without notice. An active, customer purchased Internet Service Provider broadband account is required for connection of this product and other connected devices to the Internet. Some devices may require additional wireless adapters or an Ethernet cable to connect.
**Each node in the wireless system provides a range of up to 2,000 square feet. Range can vary with the number and placement of nodes in the system. Range specifications are based on performance test results under normal use case conditions. Actual ranges will vary depending on wireless obstructions, operating environments and building material. Wireless coverage claims are used only as reference and are not guaranteed, as each wireless network is unique.
†For full warranty and support information, please visit the product support page.
‡Maximum Performance derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual performance may vary, including lower wireless network capacity, data throughput rate, speed, range and coverage. Performance depends upon many factors, conditions and variables, including building materials and construction, volume of network traffic, mix of wireless products used, interference and other adverse conditions. In order to achieve the best performance, this product must be used with compatible AC2200 wireless devices. The standard transmission rates for each node—867 Mbps (for each 5 GHz radio), 400 Mbps (for 2.4 GHz)—are the physical data rates. Actual data throughput will be lower and may depend on the mix of wireless products used and external factors.
