What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Linksys Velop (WHW0301-UK) Tri-Band AC2200 Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System
  • Nice device, great quality and comfortable size. Fits well in my interior and is a great addition to my router.
  • I chose these units over the BT Whole Home WiFi as I liked the compact size of the nodes - the reviews I'd read previously as well as some of the features steered me towards the Velop.
  • Loved the size of the units and connections being hidden underneath.
  • Device has great dimensions, very convinient. very nice design, I recommended!
  • Third point - these are really quite small unobtrusive nodes you can place them pretty much anywhere and they're not too ugly.

  • 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 "Network Specifications"
Linksys Velop (WHW0301-UK) Tri-Band AC2200 Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System
  • Compared to the typical range extenders that I had previously, having a mesh network is incredible.
  • I now have great coverage across the house. Thoroughly recommended.
  • Great coverage throughout the house and setup was a breeze.
  • After years of struggling with hotspots and range extenders to no avail I bought the Velop system and now have 72Mbps everywhere in the house against BT's theoretical maximum of 80 Mbps.
  • My only concern is that I am unable to run a 'hidden' wifi network and with my heating, security and music running on the network, I would prefer it to be hidden.
Linksys Velop (WHW0303-UK) Tri-Band AC6600 Intelligent Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System, Works with Alexa (Pack of 3)
  • The unit automatically update when new firmware is available so I don't need to worry about new security updates.
  • Smart, secure and reliable service with almost max available speed.
  • Jump between nodes is seamless and I do like the fact that it switches between 2.4 and 5Ghz bands with a single SSID.
  • Large variations of wifi standarts, stable and reliable device!
  • Good security and speed, a lot of wifi standarts, decent quality!

What customers say about "Features"
Linksys Velop (WHW0301-UK) Tri-Band AC2200 Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System
  • I love it for the excellent and straightforward instructions and the easy to use App.
  • QoS works great! Companion app is good. Mostly used features are at your fingertips on the app and it is very intuitive.
  • I plugged it into the power, opened the app on the ipad and sat back and waited. Apart from the odd click on a button the app handled it all and even tested the strength of the signal to the new unit afterwards.
  • The app does not always reflect the connection status properly - shows disconnected nodes when they aren't any.
  • I found this product to not be ready for market - the app did not work when I tried to set up the wifi network.
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)
