Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk I have owned this stuff for 3 years and in that time it has not stayed connected more than a week at a time. I talked with tech support and I searched the web looking for answers. I also had 2 nodes go bad on my so I asked tech support about it. They said they would send me new ones. I never got them. I finally gave up on them and bought Netgear. Have not so far had any trouble out of them and I'm using half as many nodes. Don't buy this junk.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I hate I purchased this item and not satisfied I purchased this from a Best Buy Geek Squad agent visiting my house because of network issues. I have a 3300 sq foot home and the signal isn't strong enough to reach most of the house. One of the nodes continues to have no signal or a weak signal. I relocated it to about 2o feet from the other child and it still isn't better. The firmware is up to date, and I chatted with Linksys .. still have issues. My wife is becoming frustrated and I may have to buy another system (not Linksys) I thought one node (child) would connect to the closest node (child), is that true or does it connect to the mother? I have a mother and two children can I purchase another child (or will it do any good) to improve the coverage?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor user interface & glitchy nodes I've had my 3 node Velop router for a few years now. At least once a year I end up having to do a complete reset & setup of all the nodes. I have to shut down the wifi & set everything up from scratch. Lately I'm having to do this every 2-3 months. Currently, I cannot get one node to reset or connect, just a red light. The app has proven useless since I cannot manage the nodes with it -- that is once it allows me to log in. The firmware is up to date. Looks like it's time for me to move to a different brand. I'd advise those considering this router to look elsewhere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average with Reconnecting Issues Is not reliable and the Wi-Fi range is very limited infact can’t go outside the front door or a 100 meters outside even the nodes near windows. And next issues when power goes down on/off the devices it takes a lot of times to reconnect and sometimes fails to connect to modem .. My set up is backhaul using CAT 8 enthernet cable.. with more than 80 HomeKit devices

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks nice had to return I finally took a chance and purchased the 3-Pack through dell. Setting up the 1st one was easy but the other 2 not so good. The electrical connection is flimsy, the 2nd had no power light when 1st plugged in and I didn't think much of it. I thought maybe it would light after trying to connect to the other node. After flipping the switch and unplugging the source finally it lights and connects. Get to the 3rd node and same thing except this one would power on and the slightest movement would cause no power. I then noticed there was a slight play in the power connection at the node, if I held the power cord in the connection the light would stay on. Setting the node down while trying to connect to the network the power would keep shutting off. Finally if I was able to get this node to remain on long enough to try connecting I would get the flashing red light not able to connect no matter where I placed it. I even tried placing it right beside the main node and still wouldn't connect. Dell support was nice enough to assist with a refund and I am taking a chance on ordering an upgraded system, one which I noticed the power connects on the side instead of the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Linksys Mesh Wi-Fi ststem I have a large house (6,000 sq ft) and for years have had wi-fi connectivity problems especially in my basement and some bedrooms. The installation of the Linksys mesh system was very straightforward and I have immediately seen improvements in my wi-fi speed snd accessibility. We have Xfinity wi-fi and it plugged straight into the existing router. No more wi-fi extenders!

I have the mesh velop 3 node system. Can I add an outdoor node or antenna to this system?

Asked by: auerman
Hi, auerman. You can add another Linksys mesh node to the WHW0303, however, our Linksys devices are for indoor use only. Also, this Linksys nodes has 6x internal antennas, therefore, you cannot add antenna to the nodes.

Do they have an outside node to add to my mess system of 3.

Asked by: James123
I don't know if they have a node that would withstand outside weather conditions. But one of my inside nodes is positioned next to an outside wall so that I have coverage outside where I need it. Maybe that would work for you.

I have this Tri-band velop system running 5 nodes. Can I connect two more? I tried connecting a 6th but for some reason it wouldn't connect.

Asked by: Johnw
You can add additional nodes, there is no limit. However your primary node, the one connected to the network port should be centrally located for best results. When adding additional nodes you have to reset your entire system I find that to be easiest. This means as if you just bought the mesh system and set them all up together at the same time while it's in discovery mode. Just adding one to your existing system is also possible but sometimes can be difficult. I have found it to be easier to just start from the beginning.

Can I use the Velop with a Verizon Gateway wireless wifi?

Asked by: HMDA BOB
It is a wireless modem so if it has a network plug you could use the mesh system but may need to bridge it. One mesh pod typically plugs into the network service port of your provider in this case the gateway which then the remaining mesh pods extend the range of the wifi. Again may require bridging the two systems.

I have run a cat6 cable to a location the wifi cannot reach. If I have 2 nodes connected with cat6 will they be on the same network? I currently have 2 routers and devices cannot discover each other.

Asked by: birby
Hi, birby. The nodes will be on the same network as long as they are configured as parent and child node. Just a reminder that you still have to set up all nodes wirelessly with the Linksys app. Once done, you can then hardwire the nodes using an ethernet cable, and the nodes should automatically switch to a wired connection.

*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.
