A recent wireless network trend is by far the mesh extender. But just like any brand, it’s a little expensive. Linksys has released the latest version of its popular Velop mesh extender. Linksys Velop is a home mesh system that uses multiple routers to extend the reach of Wi-Fi signals after Linksys WiFi Extender Login and setup. When you add a new router (or node) to your system, it basically works like a Wi-Fi extender. However, it’s a good idea to be able to set up a much stronger, faster and easier Wi-Fi.
It is available in 1 to 3 packs, but you can add as many nodes as you like. Regardless of the system number, there is only one Wi-Fi name and password. This means that you can roam the node without jamming the signal even if you move the node range by moving anywhere in the wide area. When connected to a normal router, signal strength is reduced by half, while mesh routers such as Velop maintain speed.
Design and function
Currently available Linksys Velop units are available in 1 to 3 bundled packages. However, if the range becomes wider, you can purchase additional and connect only. According to the specification, it can be added every 185 square meters.
Linksys Velop has AC3900 and larger AC6600 models. Here are the products to review AC6600 3 pack together. When you open two magnificent packages closed by magnets, three individually packaged nodes lie side by side, with three garden supplies and three cables in a separate space. The node itself is really well designed and manufactured. It is finished in matte white plastic with gray rubber flooring. The size is 185mm x 76mm.
Velop is like Netgear Orbi, who is the representative of this field. Although there are some areas of superiority, Velop is better for product finishes or for the usability described below. If you say sorry, it’s functional. Orbi has four USB ports so you can connect external storage devices or other network devices, but there is no Velop.
The connection options are minimized, but the first thing I like after I get the node is that the various ports are not listed next to or behind, but below. Certainly, when you connect to Linksys Extender, it is less irritating. Each node is exactly the same, so there are reset buttons, power, and input, and on top there is a lamp to check the node status in various colors. It’s easy to tell when it’s too far from another node or when it receives a weak signal.
People who are not interested in computers or IT, such as mesh systems, router settings, and so on, are getting nervous about these terms. Velop is too simple, simple enough to set up if you have no knowledge and basic concepts.
First, install the Linksys app on your smart phone. With this app, you can make all the settings and use the management features in the future. When you install and run the app, it shows you where to plug in, whether each node is in the correct location, and whether it is automatically connected and configured.
Unlike other other routers or extenders, Velop does not provide web-based configuration as like extender.linksys.com. It’s hard not to go through the app. It’s exactly what you can do on Linksys Web, but it makes it intentionally difficult to access. It seems to be an environment that Linksys employees access when providing services. In fact, it’s a lot easier to have an app that dynamically shows the settings screen.
However, you’ll need a mobile device with a Linksys app to configure or troubleshoot your router system. While Velop has the advantage of being easy to set up for novice users who do not have IT knowledge, each node takes a little longer to build than other brands. The Linksys Extender Setup system firmware updates happen automatically, but it seems to take 5 to 10 minutes per node. (Orbi is about 2 minutes) If you use only one node, it will not be burdensome, but the update will be done sequentially. So the update happens at midnight.
Usage and evaluation
Linksys Velop is impressive in that it’s easy to set up for beginners, but it is definitely superior to standalone Wi-Fi routers in terms of performance. Each node in Linksys Velop is a tri-band, dual-stream router that supports MU-MIMO. It’s fast and powerful with the latest technology. Unlike many mesh router systems that are available today, Velop communicates between nodes using one of two 5 GHz bands. This is much faster than traditional products because you need to keep communicating with other nodes.
So this is all about the all new Linksys Velop extender, for more information or any query, you may get in touch with extender.linksys.com Support.
