Ratings and Reviews
Very practical and nicely designed
WiFi in large house
I have been struggling for years with WiFi in my house. Repeaters and retro fitted cat5 where I could. It worked but it was a pain in the neck to maintain and my kids (or young adults now) kept complaining saying that it does not work in their room etc etc.
So, I finally decided to bit the bullet and buy a Velop mesh based system. I was concerned that the signal may not go through the walls as we live in an earthquake zone in Europe and there is reinforced concrete everywhere. I installed the in my living room linking all the units and then started to place them at strategic points around the house. So, I have one unit in the living room, one in the master bedroom and one in the garage which are all on different levels of the house. I never had WiFi in the garage before and decided to move my office from the bedroom to the garage much to my wife’s delight.
The installation is a great success - we have 100mb/sec synchronous broadband and it is available all over the house.
Also, moved my previous WiFi network to the guess network so visitors don’t have access to the Sonos system as there was great competition for its control !
Happy campers here.
Have to say delighted so far! Would love to see more stats, thanks like node performance etc. But all in all, very pleased
