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.

It’s great

The app works even with iOS 14 (smh) and the router works well and has excellent range so in short the 1 star ratings(after reading several) are because people have no clue how to use or set up things they buy or use. I.E - the app lets you restart your router no need to manually unplug it and that’s a simple example, and for everyone complaining about the product or app I’m glad your so intelligent you can make your own that’s so much better so why are you buying or using other products? And also no one cares if an app can go to landscape or not it’s an app not a game or movie smh lazy self entitled people this app with their recent routers and nodes is excellent and anyone who doesn’t think so should take all their fancy over priced tech back to the store for a refund because your to stupid to use it anyway, also no one wants to hear your trolling comments and net gear is junk so stop pushing it like you get commission on the sales thank you for your time 🥳

Avoid Linksys Velop

This app is consistently useless when it counts. Say the internet goes down, or you’re restarting after a power outage. It’s default is to log you into its cloud system but that system is not up-to-date and this will show nodes down which are not down, or a system working when the entire system is down. And logging in locally (non-cloud) is practically hidden and unintuitive. But when the internet is down, that’s the best route to diagnose.

The device list will show devices hooked up via Ethernet even though that’s impossible because they’re things like smart plugs which only communicate via WiFi, not Ethernet. Also, app is unaware what node a device is connected to. Overall the app is frustrating to use and lacks precision information.

On Velop, nodes will frequently go down and are unable to self heal. App is painfully slow to use. App needs more maintenance/utility features like the ability to reset nodes to factory if necessary (and have it WORK!). Velop system needs ability to get back to operational after a power outage consistently. The only way the Velop mesh is usable is if every node is hard-wired via Ethernet. Users should be able to completely turn off “Linksys aware” features. Possible problems from that running in the background?
