Don't buy if you need reliable parental control functions

Crutchfield customer from Chapel Hill, NC on 7/14/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased the Velop mesh system in 2017 replacing an aging router. Setup was easy and network access and speed consistent for a household with >10 devices. Wifi speed degrades after extended use but goes back to excellent when channels are re-scanned in the app or router rebooted.While the app offers parental control functions I did not attempt to use this function until this month, with the kids getting to the age where youtube / gaming/ web access needs control. I was hugely disappointed by the failure of Linksys to establish consistent and reliable parental controls. Blocking internet access on devices worked only for certain browsers, not apps, and even that was only temporary. In iOS devices Safari access was blocked, but not Chrome, and not the Youtube app When visiting customer support message boards I realized Linksys was aware of this problem since 2017, and still doesn't have a consistent fix in 2019, leaving customers abandoned with a high priced product. Even many firmware / app updates didn't fix this, suggesting that Linksys is technically incapable or not willing to help customers. They offer a paid parental control option, but who wants to pay for this if even the basic function doesn't work. I am looking for an option with consistent parental controls now after sinking money into the Velop system less than 2 years ago.

Pros: Easy setup, high speed.

Cons: Needs rebooting, channel scanning for consistent high Wifi speeds. Parental control function simply doesn't work.

Very easy to set up. The 'radios' are very powerful. My coverage with only one is much better than my old D-Link system. Two combined as a mesh system provides seamless coverage throughout the house.

Linksys Velop Tri-band Wi-Fi® System

Crutchfield customer from Bel Air, MD on 5/5/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I wasn't able to set this up the way I wanted because I was told there was no way to set a static IP address. Customer support did take that as a suggestion for a future enhancement, but I was left with having to set it up in bridge mode. There were a couple of hitches in the automated setup process but once I got past that the system seems to be working very well. I now have no WiFi weak spots in my house.

Linksys Velop Tri-band Wi-Fi® System

Crutchfield customer from Colonia, NJ on 12/8/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Needed this to strengthen the wifi in my house for Bluesound. They advertise 1 node can support 2000 sq. ft. - BUT - in the set up they advise adding another if there are 2 walls or more. If your modem is on one side of the house you will need more than advertised. I have 3000 sq. ft. and will need 3. The blue sound streamer shows a signal strength of fair-good. My computers/ipads/phones are incredibly fast now. Music streamers need stronger wifi.

Pros: does the job, very easy set up

Cons: You need more than they advertise. It becomes costly.

Solid coverage but some configuration limitations

Daniel from Alpharetta, GA on 7/16/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Overall, Velop is a great solution for simple home networks and, with a separate 5GHz backhaul channel, one of the best hardware implementations. Here's why it doesn't get 5 stars: - limited feature set in bridge mode (i.e. parental controls, device prioritization, speed check, etc. do NOT work in bridge mode) - guest mode does not work when using Ethernet backhaul (devices that connect to child nodes cannot obtain an IP address) - app is limited, for example, if you need to have different names for each Wi-Fi band, you have to use the web control panel - web control panel is simplistic, the usual granular settings you might expect on a Linksys router are not available - on boot or reboot, the Velop does not select the least busy channels, you have to run channel finder separately - simple configuration changes require a reboot (e.g. guest mode on/off or unplug child node from Ethernet)

Pros: 1. attractive design 2. hardware seems solid; mesh seems to work well 3. separate 5GHz backhaul channel with the tri-band version 4. auto updates firmware

Cons: 1. feature set limited in bridge mode 2. web control panel is very rudimentary 3. does not auto select the best channels 4. wired backhaul is not supported well

Great Performance, Good Price

Chaz K from Smyrna, GA on 2/9/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Prior to installing the Velop my entertainment room, separated from the main house by a courtyard, had nearly non-existent W-Fi (less than 1 Mbps). Comcast suggested leasing another of their routers and opening a second account. A local big box retailer recommended either a $2,500 Wi-Fi hotspot or a $450 Netgear Orbi System. Thankfully I found the Velop on Crutchfield and I could not be happier with the result. I purchased a pair of Velops, one plugged in to the Comcast gateway located in my main house and the other plugged in the wall in my entertainment room. The units are separated by about 50 feet and two exterior walls. I now have a steady 100+ Mbps download speed and 15+ Mbps upload speed. While these speeds are not quite as high as I get in the main house they are more than adequate for streaming movies and music as well as uploading photos. If you need a mesh router I recommend the Velop.

Pros: Easy Setup Reasonable Price Great Performance Good Warranty Adequate iPhone App

Cons: None

Amazing wifi coverage

Frank from Long Island, NY on 10/5/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Amazing wifi coverage. I went from having multiple dead spots throughout my home with a cable modem/dualband router, to 100mps upload/download in every inch of my home. I love this product and would recommend it to anyone needing to get good wifi in their home. I have three floors and three kids who are always on and have experienced no slow downs since setting up the Velop system. So easy to install. Took minutes and my 10 year old set it up.

Pros: Easy install, great coverage

Cons: High price, but you get what you pay for

Linksys Velop Tri-band Wi-Fi® System

William from Ottawa, IL on 9/30/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

More than satisfied. Incredibly easy to set up, I have the 2 nodes covering about 5000 sq ft. Reaches outside in my garage where I couldn't get a signal before. I may add a third in the future because of the lan connections.

Pros: Fast simple set up. LYNKSYS app for your smartphone. Strong flawless WiFi signal throughout the house. LAN connections; I can now connect an Ethernet cable to a smart tv in my living room without running a 100' cable under a crawl space.

Cons: None at this time

Features

Velop Whole Home WiFi: Velop by Linksys is a true whole-home WiFi mesh system that delivers blazing-fast WiFi using dynamic Tri-Band technology to give you 100% full-strength signal throughout your home. Velop is beautifully designed with internal antennas placed at the top for better coverage and vented on three sides for optimal cooling. Its footprint is 88% smaller than traditional routers and all connections are hidden to reduce cable clutter, so you are free to place the Velop in plain sight. And best of all, Velop is easy to setup.

Modular System: Velop immerses you in WiFi no matter what type or size of home you live in. It is modular and available in a one, two or three pack. This gives you the freedom to place additional nodes to reach difficult spots like the upstairs, basement, garage, or backyard for flawless WiFi everywhere.

Note: The Velop system is composed of nodes. The first node you will set up becomes the Parent node and you can add another node to expand your network. There can be a total of 10 nodes in a Velop WiFi mesh network.

100% WiFi Mesh Network Signal: The Velop mesh system operates as one network and continuously searches for your connected devices. This ensures a 100% seamless connection as you move throughout your home. A Velop modular WiFi mesh system gives you 100% seamless WiFi without lag or buffering. Velop gives you full-strength WiFi without signal degradation or drop-out.

Dynamic Tri-Band Technology: Featuring Dynamic Tri-band technology, Velop provides blazing fast speeds through its combination of three WiFi radios, each tuned for optimal WiFi load balancing to ensure peak WiFi performance throughout the home. Whether you're streaming 4K content, gaming, or video chatting, Velop delivers exceptionally fast WiFi to ensure optimal performance even when multiple WiFi devices are connected.

Next-Gen AC + MU-MIMO: The Linksys Velop features Next-Gen AC WiFi with MU-MIMO technology, the latest advancement towards uninterrupted, simultaneous WiFi connections. Devices such as 4K TVs, HD streaming media players, tablets, game consoles, and many more use a lot of bandwidth, and with MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) technology, the Velop sends WiFi to multiple devices at the same time and same speed. Your whole family can play, stream, and work at once, without experiencing lag or buffering--at up to 2x the speed of a non-MU-MIMO router.

Direct WiFi signals to each of your mobile devices to increase signal strength and coverage.

With the Linksys App, you can closely monitor and manage your home's WiFi remotely from anywhere with a network or cellular connection.

  • Parental Controls: Ensure a safe Internet experience for your kids, even when you're away from home. Reduce online distractions during homework, family or dinnertime. Restrict access to inappropriate or distracting content, control usage, and block specific devices from accessing the Internet.
  • Guest Access: Generate a separate, password-protected WiFi network for up to 50 guests and easily share the password via text.
  • Device Prioritization: Prioritize devices that need the most speed.
  • Auto-Fix: Automatically select the best channel for your device and eliminate congestion with the push of a button.
  • Speed Test: Easily test and monitor your Internet connection's speed to make sure you're getting full speed from your provide.

Amazon Alexa Compatible: Alexa (sold separately) enables you to interact with the Linksys Velop system using your voice. When paired with Amazon Alexa, Velop gives you access to a variety of convenient voice commands. For example, you can verbally turn Guest WiFi on or off by stating, "Alexa, ask Linksys to turn on my guest WiFi".

AC Power: The Linksys Velop includes an AC power adapter which will need to be plugged into an AC wall outlet. Input (100-240V ~ 50-60Hz, 0.7A); Output (1.2V, 2A).

Q
How do the "nodes" communicate with each other? I currently have three WiFi modems. Can I keep using them if I get this "Velop" system? Will this system work between separate buildings? One is about fifty feet away; the other about 150 feet away.
[ Charles  Apr 02, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
The Velop modes use a proprietary mesh network to communicate with each other. You can continue to use your existing modem. The nodes offer great range and coverage but, depending on the building materials, the one that's 150 feet away may be too far. For additional assistance and personalized recommendations, feel free to contact us directly: https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx I hope that helps.
