Upgrading the firmware of your Velop system

The Linksys Velop Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System is the newest technology from Linksys that gives you 100 percent seamless Wi-Fi experience.  The Velop system is a powerful tri-band connection point that distributes full internet speed.  Say goodbye to buffering as the Velop system sends flawless, full-strength Wi-Fi across your entire home up to 6,000 sq. ft.
