The second unit is on 1st floor within 18 ft from main unit. The third unit is on the 1st floor within 20 ft from second unit one wall separating. The one connect to the router is fine but the satellites are not dependable.
They work most of the time but drop all the time. I have moved these to different rooms and places throughout the room. Can not get dependability. Very disappointed in a system at this price. There is also no way of testing the connections except lengthy trial and error. Very poor. This was to replace a router and wifi extender that were about 4 years old.
This was the easiest wifi router I have ever installed. All of the installation is done via your cell phone. It took under 15 minutes to install the 2 units. I have a 4, sq ft 2 story house and the coverage is fantastic in every part of it. The Velop definitely increased the speed of my main PC which is plugged straight in to an ethernet port on the main unit and in my case doubled the speed on all of my other wifi devices that we use in the other story of the house.
I give a big thumbs up for this product. First off even the box and the way it was packaged so neatly even made me love it even more. It's such a powerful router in such a small form factor. It looks so nice placed anywhere you decide to call it it's home. Setup of this router was a breeze using the Linksys Smart Wifi App and only took under about 5 minutes to get my new network up and running. The speed I experience with this new device is beyond my expectations as well as the range of coverage I have with it.
I've never been so satisfied with a product I would highly recommend this router to anyone and everyone. Rated 1 out of 5 by Expect Better from Releeased too early? After quite a bit of on-line research, I chose the Velop system. The initial unit install was flawless.
Unit number two was placed at the far end of the house and also performed quite well. It was the third unit they gave me problems. After close to twos on the phone with Linksys support which was very professional we ended up reloading the firmware on the third unit. We finally had the entire system operational!! Loved it I rebooted my Arris Docsis 3. Sorry Linksys. Great idea but not ready for prime time. Rated 4 out of 5 by Rlmarti from Innovative design and size.
Product arrived very well packaged. My setup was with two nodes know as parent hooked to the cable modem and child the other node. Overall installation was fairly simple it took me about half an hour for setup and another half hour to set up all my devices.
The nodes are small well designed with great ventilation they run much more cooler than my existing products. App is user friendly and provides easy access to monitor and interface with the devices. Rated 1 out of 5 by jocamel from Can't integrate with other Linksys Routers Good for the basic user.
Can't integrate with my Linksys EA Velop must be configured through app and not using conventional default IP address from a desktop. Only two LAN ports??! So I need to purchase a switch if I wanted to hardware multiple devices. I repackaged my three node kit and saved until a firmware patch or something is created to allow for better customized settings.
If not I will sell it off to someone who doesn't need advanced settings like my parents or grandparents. Velop can hit high speeds, but not reliably. Out of all the devices I tested, Velop is the only one that frequently dropped connections to my Dropcams for long periods at a time, several times a day.
It also doesn't do well with walls, despite saying I placed the nodes perfectly. It gives very little feedback on where to put the devices. Just says it's good It also doesn't let you change your subnet. It also requires a connection to the cloud. And it's the most expensive. AmpLiFi HD is the most reliable one I've tested and it does everything locally without "phoning home" to the cloud, which I appreciate.
I've since returned the Velop. Each node has three Wi-Fi radios — one 2. Each 5 Ghz radio has throughput of Mbps. Specifications are subject to change without notice. An active, customer purchased Internet Service Provider broadband account is required for connection of this product and other connected devices to the Internet.
Some devices may require additional wireless adapters or an Ethernet cable to connect. Range can vary with the number and placement of nodes in the system. Range specifications are based on performance test results under normal use case conditions. Actual ranges will vary depending on wireless obstructions, operating environments and building material. Wireless coverage claims are used only as reference and are not guaranteed, as each wireless network is unique.
Actual performance may vary, including lower wireless network capacity, data throughput rate, speed, range and coverage. Performance depends upon many factors, conditions and variables, including building materials and construction, volume of network traffic, mix of wireless products used, interference and other adverse conditions. In order to achieve the best performance, this product must be used with compatible AC wireless devices.
The standard transmission rates for each node— Mbps for each 5 GHz radio , Mbps for 2. Actual data throughput will be lower and may depend on the mix of wireless products used and external factors. A trademark of Ziff Davis, Inc. Used under license. Reprinted from www.
Just plug-in power to the device and connect Ethernet cable to the device that goes to primary or other existing nodes. Wait for the device to turn on. Wait for the Blue light to become stable. Once it is solid blue, then it is working. In case of a wireless connection between node, you need to configure the new device using Linksys App. For example, if you have an existing router or modem router gateway and you want to continue using it as your router, then you can add a Velop system to increase your Wi-Fi range.
In this case, Velop will not have its own network. All the nodes will be part of an existing Wi-Fi network. It will act like Range extender. I would not recommend you to use this powerful device in bridge mode. Instead of bridge mode, make Velop as the primary router and existing Wireless router in bridge mode.

The secondary nodes can be connected wirelessly or with an ethernet cable. Following features will be disabled when you setup Liinksys Velop bridge mode. Instead of relying on a single WiFi router at one end of your home, you can place several Velop hotspots around the house to create a mesh network.
It looks like a single WiFi network to all your wireless gadgets. Your gadgets can seamlessly jump between Velop nodes as you move around the house, depending on the strongest signal, which is like your mobile switches between mobile towers. It is using Single network throughout the office or home where you do not need to jump over to the connection manually. The image below explains how the range extender will affect speed.

Let us consider; you already have a existing router in the network. The router is connected to the Internet modem. Now you want to use Velop system to increase signal strength or increase Wi-Fi area. You have a wired router connecting to the modem, and you currently do not have Wi-Fi setup.
In this case, you can connect the primary node to the Ethernet port on a Wired router. The primary node will automatically get Internet through the router, and it will create Wifi network. Just run the app and configure it as explained in this article above. Check How to setup the Linksys router with the modem. You already have a wireless network setup with an existing router, and your current wireless router is connected to the modem.

Tap Done. To reset the node to its factory defaults, press and hold until the light on top of the node turns red, fades, and flashes bright red again. Before resetting the node, make sure that the node completely boots up showing a purple light or blue light. After resetting, all the settings that you have customized such as Wi-Fi name, passwords, and security type will be erased.
Yes, it does perform the work of wireless router. Using Velop, you can create a wired or wireless network.
