What customers say about "Key Specs"
Linksys VLP0103 Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System
  • I’m getting 250 to 350 speed consistently and have not experienced any lagging.
  • WiFi speed and reliability greatly improved.
  • Improved the speeds in the farther locations by about 50%.
  • My speeds are even faster than my previous Asus AC 3100 router, was getting around 90-110mbps and now 139mbps.
  • Had troubles with this thing not sending out the correct amount of speed.
Linksys WHW0303 AC6600 Intelligent Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System (Pack of 3)
  • 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.

  • 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)
