The Linksys Velop is a whole-home Wi-Fi or mesh-router system that uses several routers that work together to extend the range of your Wi-Fi signal. The Linksys Velop is Belkin’s first home mesh Wi-Fi system. It finds itself right between the Google Wifi and Netgear Orbi in terms of performance. Velop immerses you in Wi‑Fi no matter what type of home you live in. It is transposable and available in a one, two or three pack. This allows you to place additional nodes to reach difficult spots like the basement or backyard for flawless Wi‑Fi everywhere.
Velop is Not a Traditional Router
At times, traditional routers can not reach the far corners of your home, but Velop is different. You can place Velop nodes anywhere to provide you with full-strength Wi‑Fi. You use one unit of the Velop as the main router to connect to an internet source. If you have a large home, you can put the other nodes one or two rooms away from the main unit to automatically extend your Wi-Fi coverage.
Setting up Velop is an easy process as long as you have a smart phone. Like many other mesh routers, there is no alternative set up options. Just download the Linksys app, follow the instructions to register and log in with a Linksys account. You need to remember that just like the Google Wifi, your home network powered by the Velop will stay connected to Linksys at all times. You will likely be able to set up all three units in less than 20 minutes.
Velop is modular and performs well within every home type, situation, and footprint, compared to traditional routers. Simply add additional nodes to work around walls, problem areas or multiple stories. Available as either a single unit, in a pair, or in packs of three, you can add as many nodes as you like. You’ll have only one Wi-Fi name and password to worry about. You can then roam seamlessly between each node without ever losing signal.
A Velop modular Wi‑Fi mesh system surpasses traditional routers and range extenders. It gives you 100% seamless Wi‑Fi without lag or buffering. The signal degrades as you move farther away from the router with other Wi-Fi systems, and it leaves you open to dropped connections. But Velop gives you full-strength Wi‑Fi everywhere. Velop’s Tri-Band technology dynamically changes to deliver blazing fast, seamless Wi‑Fi to all devices.
The Velop mesh system operates as a single network and constantly searches for your connected devices. This ensures a 100% seamless connection anywhere in your home. Multiple nodes work as one Wi‑Fi mesh system.
The Linksys App
The Linksys App allows you to access and control your Wi‑Fi from home or remotely. Using Parental Control on the app you can keep your kids safe by restricting access to certain websites, creating boundaries and limiting Wi-Fi usage during homework and bedtime. You can give priority to streaming devices, this will easily prevent buffering and other devices from slowing down the network. You can easily share a guest network with friends and family. Simply email or text them a unique and safe Wi-Fi name and password. Monitor your internet speed by getting real-time upload and download speeds. Velop automatically selects the best Wi-Fi channel, updates the firmware to maintain security levels, and optimizes the system to avoid interference and ensure the strongest signal.
Velop is flawlessly fast and its full strength signal surrounds your entire home, which also includes trouble spots like your bedroom, basement, or backyard. It is relief to know that everyone in your home is free to stream, game or watch 4K videos in peace.
