you’re looking to fill your whole home with full-strength WiFi, then the Linksys Velop is an excellent choice. Using state-of-the-art mesh network technology, buffering becomes a thing of the past. Instead, you can enjoy fast connection speeds wherever you go- without having to swap between extender networks.
The Linksys Velop works by connecting multiple nodes for a stable internet connection across your whole home. Each node offers up to 2,000 sq ft of cover, and as a fully scalable solution, you can simply add as many extra nodes as you need. Unlike traditional WiFi extenders, though, each Velop node forms a part of a single, seamless network. Smart technology automatically hooks your device up to the best connection available, so you’re never left waiting for things to load.
The Velop doesn’t just provide you with full home WiFi coverage- it also looks seriously stylish, too. With a modern design and small footprint, you can easily place each node just about anywhere in your home without it looking out of place. The vertical design is more than just an aesthetic choice, though. It means that inside the unit, the WiFi antennae are positioned vertically, A nice extra touch comes in the connection port design. Most other mesh units have these on the exterior, but the Velop has them neatly tucked away within the underside of the node.
As with many mesh WiFi networks, the Linksys Velop is remarkably easy to set up. There is an accompanying Linksys app, and once that is downloaded, it will talk you through the rest of the process. It only takes about ten minutes to set up all three nodes, and they will automatically update to the latest firmware upon startup. That means you’ll have access to the latest network protection and fastest speeds right from the word go.
The Linksys Velop has been designed to be fully compatible with Alexa. Whether you want to quickly get your WiFi password, or turn guest networks on and off, you can do it all with simple voice commands. Just tell Alexa what you need, and she will take care of the rest.
As well as helping you to get your Velop nodes up and running, the Linksys app also lets you quickly and easily control every aspect of your home WiFi network. For instance, parental controls help you to keep track of your children’s internet usage, switch off access when it’s time for homework, and ensure they can’t visit any inappropriate sites. When you have people over, you can turn on a dedicated guest network that supports up to 50 users. You can even select which devices have priority for the best signal- so if you’re trying to stream something on your TV, other connected devices won’t keep holding you back
