  • Sweet WiFi with the new Velop
    Reviewed by Losel - April 28, 2020

    The MX5300 are replacing gen 1 Velop system in my house. Easy set-up that you'd expect from Linksys. The app, to me is still a bit clunky, but the web interface works well. The only issue I had was having to reset one satellite node (3 node setup) every day for 4 days, at approximately the same time every day. They it just went away. The really strange thing tho was that the Tech Support at Linksys wanted me to evaluate my network then do math to figure out what the MTU size should be set at. I run in bridge mode, even if I wanted to step back 10 years to figure out my optimum MTU, I cannot set it anyway. Some support reps better than others...

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Best Router
    Reviewed by Telguy1 - February 10, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Linksys MX5 Velop is the best router I have ever used. I plugged it in and followed the instructions and the router set itself up to all my connections. The Linksys MX5 is fast and reliable. Between myself and my family we have had over 20 devices going at once and this router handles all the internet connections without any problems. Also it is different looking as you do not have the antennaes. It is a heavey duty piece of needed equipment for me. I download movies, engineering drawing and various other types of files. The download speed is steady and fast. I would recommend this product to anyone that requires internet connection through their entire house.

  • Very Easy Install
    Reviewed by Balder - August 7, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The linksys MX5 was an extremely simple install. This unit replaced a WRT3200ACM router which worked well, but wow the MX5 is awesome. I have a strong signal in every spot in my house. Absolutely no dead spots. The wifi speed is also allot faster throughout my house making my streaming experience much more enjoyable. We stream everything at my house, no cable tv, and the MX5 handles it great. With multiple laptops, Ipad, Iphones, etc. using wifi ive had no slowdown/buffering. Just a heads up, the MX5 unit is large. Very happy with the new wifi system. Great job Linksys!
