    I'm retired after decades in the computer industry. I enjoy helping friends with their technology needs. I've helped install the Velop tri-band systems in multiple locations. I recommend Velop whenever a home has dead spots, large areas to cover, or multiple spaces on a plot of land. Pros: Fairly easy to set up even if you're not a computer wiz. The app walks you through the steps with clear language. Most reviews say that Velop covers more area than competing mesh routing systems. There's good feedback in confirming whether a new unit is placed sufficiently to relay the wifi signal from the next nearest one. The system is reasonably stable and consistent once you place each unit (node) satisfactorily. The system offers the option of using a single SSID (wifi network name) for 2.4 and 5gHz networks. Your wifi devices grab what they want because Linksys feeds them without having to specify. The system can also provide a guest network for visitors to your home. This allows them to get in the internet but shields them from accessing all the other devices in your home. (Thus providing privacy for your family's data, etc. Cons: I really think Linksys could have beefed up the functionality of the app with features that us geeks have been using in most conventional wifi routers. It's clear that the company placed a high priority on making the system easy to use. And they've done a pretty good job at that. But that doesn't hinder them from building in more advanced configuration options. Neither the app nor the web administration interface offer a way to backup and restore your settings. Linksys does send the configuration to their cloud servers. But if you ever have a reason to do a factory reset (or create a similar setup in another location), you have to manually configure all your network settings from scratch. It's not cheap. At least not yet. Bottom line: Having weighed all the advantages and drawbacks, Velop is easy to set up and it gets wifi into all the nooks and crannies. If you have a cottage across the way. Or a chimney blocking the wifi signal. Or lots of masonry dramatically dropping internet access, the Velop system can punch through.

    With my router getting older and internet speeds getting faster I started down the path of trying to find a new router for my house and after doing a lot of research landed on a mesh WiFi system. This is mostly due to simplicity reasons as my house is just over 2200 square feet so coverage is not an issue with a normal router. I love the fact that there is only one network SSID for both 2.4 and 5ghz antennas. This Velop system happened to be on sale for the holidays so I decided to give it a try even though it was still $300. The setup was extremely easy with the app and I had it up and running in less than 10 minutes. I have now had it up and running for 4 days and only had a few issues in that time. The number one issue I noticed was that every device was connected to the main node, even devices that had a much closer node to it. After doing some searching on the interwebs I found a solution to unplug the main node for about 30 seconds so that devices would search for another node and connect to a closer one. This helped and I was able to get everything paired to the node closest to it. The devices that are stationary Never swapped back to the main node so that was nice. There are no settings that allow you to choose which node you want a device to connect to. This is the case for most mesh systems out there so not a knock on just this one. The next issue has to do with speed. I have Comcast 500 down and 20 up and use the netgear CM1000 modem instead of the one they lease. Hard wired direct to the modem I can get somewhere around 550mbps down and 20 up. The maximum speed I have achieved over wireless is 180mbps down and 17 up. To be honest I didn’t think this was a big issue until I decided to try another mesh system just to compare. I bought the Eero system (not the pro just the regular one that was on sale for $160 during the holidays model J010001) and hooked it up with all the same settings and placed them in the same places. The speed difference has been staggering. I have now seen speeds over the 5ghz antenna from 250 to 550mbps down. Not once has my speed dropped below 200Mbps if I am in the same room as a node. Needless to say for half the price I am going with the Eero System as it has outperformed the Velop system. I think it is extremely important to try multiple systems in your house because your layout may play better with certain systems.
