    This product is excellent. Setup is really easy, and I find the app to be excellent. It gives just enough basic networking flexibility (such as basic QoS, MAC filtering, MTU adjustment, etc) without being overly complex. Many mesh systems try to make your life too simple by hiding a lot of this stuff, or not even including features like QoS. Before, I was using an Eero system, and I was getting speeds around 130Mbps at my gaming PC (on a 700Mbps ISP connection). With the Velop I can get 300Mbps or so (same number of nodes, same placement). I do a lot of gaming and I am unfortunately unable to route a wired connection to my office, so I needed to find a wireless solution. I was unable to play anything on the Eero while someone else was downloading due to the lag spikes caused by buffer bloat. The Velop includes a rudimentary QoS system, allowing me to prioritize my PC (which I have hardwired straight to one of the nodes thanks to the ethernet ports on each one) and reduce my ping spikes from up to 500ms on the Eero down to a much more manageable 70ms (base ping is around 40 to most game servers I find). I think this is the next best thing if you cannot have a wired connection.

  • Linksys Wi-Fi system for a 2-story home

    I would recommend this purchase for a 2-story home; we have a strong Wi-Fi signal everywhere we need it! The product(s) are easy to set up, and they work very well! There is a phone app for setup, and it steps through and tests installation at every step. Customer support is also very thorough and professional - I had to purchase a new cable modem, and it caused my Wi-Fi system to stop working. One phone call later, the customer service representative was able to talk me through the steps required to set up Linksys again, without any issues.


  • Good mesh system overall

    Wifi speed not as high as I had expected. I have about 940k speed at router and only get about 150k on the wifi.

    I did tried 2 and even with the help of Velop techs not even this guys could fix the connection and range of this mesh... too bad after be a Netgear Orbi costumer Velop can not compare to the range of the Orbi.

    Vastly improved my coverage in my 6000 sq ft house. Bought 5 towers and get much better download speeds etc with less buffering.

    I already had a three pack but was having trouble connecting in a large house. Bought this thinking it would take care of the issue but it’s only made it worse.
