Reviews on Amazon are pretty terrible. Anyone have real life review? I have 150mbps internet and just want to get better range in corners of house.

Is this the same deal that woot had a couple weeks ago?

https://slickdeals.net/f/13926182-linksys-velop-intelligent-mesh-wifi-system-your-choice-model-54-99-239-99

I bought the three pack (tri-band + 2x dual-band). I only have 100 mbps dsl, but I get full speed (Speedtest) from all three nodes. 2000 sq ft, two story, couple walls between each node. 20 ft. and 40 ft. from the main node to the other two. 40 concurrent devices. I think the bottleneck would be the two remote nodes only being dual band, but I'm only using those for light duty. It's been up for a week, no issues so far.

Yes I have the Tri-band system. The system is constantly rebooting/losing links in my 3 node setup. Speed when the system is online is not bad.

I've had the Velop tri-band 3 node system for years now. At initial deployment, it was very buggy where nodes would lose connection to the primary node (by the modem). Subsequent firmware upgrades have really stabilized the system. I rarely have to fuss with anything at this point and speeds are good (my comparison being with 2 routers, 1 set as an access point). Having said that, if I were in the market today, I would be looking at the Netgear system (seems to be easier to configure based on my read) or the new Google wifi, which seems to be the overall best leader at the moment. For people in my situation who have a mesh system already, I am waiting on wifi 6 mesh systems to become more affordable and migrate my tech then. Good luck!

I have these, I got them on sale. They suck. It takes about 5 to 10 min to hook each on to the network. They disconnect all the time. The tv which is next to one of these connects to the one that is upstairs. I hate these i wish I'd save the 100. I went cheap to try a mesh system and lesson learned.

I have like 7 of these nodes.

Never could get it to work well, got it down to four nodes (more worked poorly), coverage is ok, but seems very unintelligent in the mapping.

One thing I hate is you can't set specific node preferences for devices, despite the app being very good at seeing and identifying devices.

Don't think this is a good price. I bought the AC2600 new from B&H a year ago for $99.

Disappointed. The one connected to the modem works well, the remote nodes gets weak frequently.

I have this and bought it 2.5 years ago. I got it when they only had the tri-band and while it works well, it's not amazing. I've had nodes go in and out before but it's not a consistent thing where it makes me want to look to replace it. I do like that you can have a wired back end so that they communicate with each other over an ethernet cable and therefore can be a stand alone node rather than relying on relaying the main nodes signal. I have yet to get around to that project of wiring up my house for that, but it is still something I want to do.

My house needed it because my main office where I WFH could only send out a signal to a portion of my house. The main living room isnt that far away but theres a closet, powder room, hallway, and garage wall between the office and the living in a weird diagonal so theres so many walls and my AC3200 triband router from Asus wouldn't reach properly to my TV. Hope this helps

I've had the system for ~2 years - after a year I've had trouble with 2 of the nodes dropping randomly at least weekly requiring reboots. I'd get something different if I were in the market.

I purchased Linksys Velop Dual Band AC3600 - 3 pack last year in April from Walmart. From the very start I had issues even getting the system setup using the mobile app. I ended up having to use my laptop and reseting the damn nodes to factory defaults many times. I must mention that I work in IT for a living so I'm not a 'noob'.

Eventually I got it working.. It worked really well actually for a few months. Eventually I started to have wireless disconnects and extremely slow speeds over wifi. I had to reboot the main node nearly everyday. It didn't matter where I placed the nodes in the house (I have a 1900sqft 2 story house). Eventually I just gave up and purchased a ubiquiti unifi AP (nanohd) and I haven't had any issues since.

I definitely would take heed to the negative reviews...

Pretty solid deal. I own the tri-band 3 pack and live in a 2 story house roughly 2200 sq ft. These are pretty reliable but the app is finicky sometimes. Still a solid purchase
