About the Linksys Velop Dual-band Wi-Fi® System
Up to 3,000 square feet of solid Wi-Fi coverage
Wherever friends and family gather, you'll get speedy, glitch-free Wi-Fi with the Linksys Velop Dual-band Wi-Fi system.
Up to 3,000 square feet of solid Wi-Fi coverage
A single router may struggle to cover your entire home with strong, fast Wi-Fi. Your house may spread out horizontally, or maybe you have a couple of vertical levels. The Linksys Velop dual-band mesh system solves that problem.
Plug in one module wherever your modem is located. Then you can add more — up to 10 total — around your home to repeat and boost the original signal. If you start out with the 2-pack, you can cover up to 3,000 square feet — the layout can conform to your unique needs. All modules share a single Wi-Fi name (SSID), so you experience seamless connectivity as you roam throughout the house.
Easy, app-based setup
Setup is fast and easy. Just plug one Velop into your existing high-speed modem and use the free Linksys app for Apple® and Android™ devices to configure the network. You'll be enjoying speedy streaming and internet access in minutes.
