Velop Router

I spent 10 hours trying to set up two different routers from two different companies and had such a difficult time setting them up. After much frustration, I took them both back.

I talked to two representatives at one of the local electronic stores and both had the Linksys Velop systems. They mentioned the ease of set-up and convenience of the Linksys App. I was convinced that if this is the system that they use, then this is the system that I need to try out. I figured if I couldn't get it to setup, I was going to have to have an internet specialist come to my house and install this unit.

WELL, this was the easiest setup and literally took me less than 10 minutes to set up the whole system. The app is clear and extremely understandable and walked me through the whole setup (plug in wall, plug in signal, and it goes through a few setup steps) and WOW- it was online. Then, I set up the extra node with power and it connected right away. EASY, EASY, EASY. If you are looking for a GREAT system with awesome coverage and easy setup then the Velop system is for you. Thanks Linksys for making this system so easy that even a non-technical person like me can set it up in minutes.

Linksys Velop

We have Verizon Fios fiber optic which is suppose to be the fastest. They got changed to Frontier. Started to slow down. Then started to have issue connecting wireless to the the wifi wireless. They changed the modem first. It was ok for a short time. Then started having issue again connecting. Technician came and change the modem again and upgraded my service to a faster internet connection. Again started to have issue a couple days later. Another technician came and added a box in the garage. I told him that we use to have very good connection to the wifi before the company changed to Frontier. He recommended to get a google whole house wifi extender. I bought a Linksys system. It’s a great system. Now we have a very good wifi connection anywhere in the house. Even across the street I can connect to the wifi. Thanks to Linksys Velop. I recommend this system to anyone that has wifi connection issue.

Similar experiences to the other one star reviews

I recently (foolishly) opened the app – my network had a hiccup that spurred me to reboot everything, and after everything restarted and reconnected and was working fine, I wanted to see if there was a firmware update that hadn’t been installed (yes, I have the firmware auto update set), and was greeted by the app telling me that one of my Velop units could not connect to the others. All units appeared to be functioning ok, no red lights. So I followed the app’s instructions and power cycled the node it said could not connect to the others, it rebooted and displayed the same blue light that it had previously. I then used the app to reset the network, and when things returned, everything had a blue light, everything worked, but the app now flagged a different node as being “unable to connect”. I repeat, the network was functioning fine. I tried excoriating their tech support drones via the “send us a suggestion” link in the app, and received the final humiliation … the email was returned as the address it was set to did not exist.

Folks, the Linksys development person has apparently expired or has relocated to an unused missile silo until the pandemic is over. Velop users are on your own. I have deleted the Linksys app from my iPad to protect my Velop network from software assaults.
