Today’s technology user cannot live without the Internet. And not with any Internet. You need a connection that is of high speed and acceptable stability.
To achieve this goal at home, the market offers various options already known as repeaters or signal extenders. These devices, no doubt, help to achieve the desired end, but have the problem that their contribution depends on the characteristics of distances and construction of the house. A point that the technology of Wi-Fi “in mesh” comes to solve.
A good example of this technology is the Linksys brand Velop system, which we have been testing for several days. In simple terms, what this system does is provide the user with Wi-Fi connectivity at home at a similar speed inside the home, no matter where it connects to the network. And also, provide permanent stability, without signal breaks. Something that is very unpleasant when streaming videos or listening to music online.
How is the above achieved? By installing “nodes” that the user can distribute around the home according to their needs. The first node connects directly to the ISP modem. And the following (which may be one, two or more) are linked to the original node using the app developed by Linksys for this purpose.
For this review, we configured two nodes in a very simple and intuitive way through the smartphone application. The process of enabling the nodes, creating the network, assigning keys and leaving everything operational, took no more than 15 minutes.
Once the network was created, we made numerous tests of speed, stability, access from different connected equipment and using various download and streaming services. The result in all these tests was satisfactory. You really notice the difference compared to a connection to a “traditional” router.
Although these “mesh” Internet devices still have a high price, if you are looking for first-class Wi-Fi connectivity, this is a very interesting option. Moreover, such systems will replace traditional routers sooner or later, so the more you become familiar with these new routers, the better it is for you. If you are already using Velop router and want to know how to set up this device in the right way because your current setup is not fetching you higher internet speeds, then you can take help of Velop router help and Linksys velop support providers. Similarly, if you are facing connectivity issues, hardware issues or any other issue in your Velop router, make sure to get it checked by experts.
