  • Good WIFI coverage Not sure about speed?
    Reviewed by Kmarhef - August 24, 2020

    We bought this setup last week. We are paying for 300mps internet. Cable co came out because Speed test app shows only 69mps on WIFI. We ran test at modem cat5 port and it is 340mps. Ran it again from several Speedtest apps and internet app and only getting 60-90mps. If I run the Linksys speed test app from phone to Velop is shows 320mps? Why would the intenet speedtest using laptop and cell phones only show 60-90mps? So right now I can't say this unit is putting out 300mps. PS swapped modem 3 time with various units and painfully had to enter in the Mac adress eah time with cable company, Same result, 340pms on modem output, but much lower over wifi.....

  • Three nodes and a LINKSYS!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by DCarp - March 28, 2020

    Easiest, simplest set up I have ever done. Twenty minutes, three nodes, multiple devices. Immediately increased access speed and provided WiFi access to dead zones in my house including two bedrooms and immediately outside. Well worth the cost even if I had not saved seventy dollars. Used contactless, curbside service which was uncomplicated and quick. From online purchase to store to driveway less than one hour. My only regret is that I waited so long to take the plunge. Be safe; be smart; be well!

  • Excellent mesh network and great support
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Azza - August 21, 2020

    Solid connection and very fast speed. If a node drops my connection usually stays up, but I think a better placement of the node would help with minimal disconnects. The node usually only drops with a power cut or other interference. It rarely happens, but if it does it is easy to wake the node/s up. Also to save others time, disable the WiFi on your router if you have AirPrint or other device connection issues, and use the mesh network to broadcast the WIFI. This is better than bridging as you can keep the smart features on the mesh network operating. I believe the mesh network does a better job of prioritizing traffic, etc, than my new WIFI 6 router. Awesome network very happy with the speed and solid connection!!!

  • Great for extended areas
    Verified BuyerReviewed by JimH - December 23, 2018

    Using six nodes to provide WiFi coverage in a old building with thick walls that other traditional commercial WiFi options were not covering. My only complaint is that I would like to put them in bridge mode behind a wired router, but still have them provide a guest network. Since this is not possible, in order to get the five additional nodes behind the base node, I had to put the base node in front of some of the wired users which moved them to the Velop NATTed network and then change some of their IP settings. Otherwise working great providing a stronger and more reliable WiFi network similar to an enterprise experience for the users.

  • Great speeds and connections - HORRIBLE INTERFACE
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Tony - March 28, 2020

    I purchased one unit for myself and my parents house and they work GREAT! However, if you ever need to modify something beyond the initial setup, both the computer app and the mobile app are both written by imbeciles. It is the most useless app as there is no way to interface with the unit by typing in IP address in a web browser. It occassionally does work but when it does not work, you cannot make any changes. I love the consistent and coverage that the product does provide. I used to have to reset my modem and router at least once or twice a month before buying this unit but I DESPISE the inconsistency of the interface. BUY an Eero intead.
