Linksys Velop (WHW0101) AC1200 Dual-Band Home Mesh Wi-Fi System
  • Excellent range and WIFI speeds. Consistent WIFI speeds from end to end.
  • The range, coverage and speeds are always perfect. I didn't have many drops, latency issues or long ping times.
  • I have exactly the same speed wifi in every room. Very easy to set up and log on.
  • Using the exact same modem and internet service to it, our reliability is much higher with the new system.
  • The speed is immaculate. Has some troubles every once in a while. But just needs a quick reboot and all good to go. Seamless WiFi signal around the whole house.

  • I am now running a mesh network with 3 units in total, which covers the whole house with no gaps, plus a sizeable area around it.
  • First class solution for large areas, office or home, where you want no deadsports and fast simultaneous throughput - Excellent.
  • The 3-stations enabled us to cover a huge mansion and an 80m long garden, with no deadspots.
  • Since installing linksys - no black areas, even getting 200mps in the outhouse .
  • The kit is expensive, and don't expect it to cover the area it says.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Linksys Velop (WHW0101) AC1200 Dual-Band Home Mesh Wi-Fi System
  • What I like about these is the small size and beautiful appearance makes it easy to find a spot on the kitchen counter, night stand, etc. and it hides away in the background.
  • The Linksys is compact enough ( l actually love the size).
  • The 'nodes' are almost small Apple Airport Extreme towers, but a baby version.
  • The nodes are small and compact. The installation is pretty simple and straightforward that I think the average non-IT users should be able to install it on their own.
  • There is good looking small packaged unit that would fit in anywhere in the home.

  • Compared to my old setup the velop units are great. They are neat (about the size of a pint glass) and easy on the eye (no antennae).
  • it certainly looks better than the standard router we have all got used to. It looks like a very small speaker.
  • The Velop is small, neat and easy enough to set up.
  • Decent quality and lightweight, highly recommended!
  • Excellent wifi connectivity, small and easy to set up.

What customers say about "Features"
Linksys Velop (WHW0101) AC1200 Dual-Band Home Mesh Wi-Fi System
  • I love the iOS app and it it gives all sorts of control over the network. Very nice.
  • Very easy to set up. Intuitive UI through the app. Relatively responsive. Mobile connectivity is a plus. Adjusts load across devices.
  • Mobile app and web-based control page offer wide range of options, easy administration of the network, nodes, security and connected devices.
  • The app setup was a small nuisance and pain, and I've been around tech for over 15 years and this was one the most cumbersome parts of the whole thing.
  • The app does not always reflect the connection status properly - shows disconnected node when it aren't.
Linksys Velop (WHW0303-UK) Tri-Band AC6600 Intelligent Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System, Works with Alexa (Pack of 3)
  • The app for your phone (android or OS) enables you to prioritise devices, add / remove devices and even permit a guest network to ensure your data on the network is kept safe ad secure.
  • LED on the top of the units clearly show current status.
  • Via the app, I found an option to scan WiFi channels, so that the Velop would optimise itself to fit around any other WiFi networks in the area.
  • The range and speed is excellent, the app works very well for configuration and monitoring.
  • One problem is clearly the app; it kept freezing on my iPhone and required reboots (although while it worked it was fine)
