Excellent bit of kit, I've had mine up and running for about 3 months and zero dead spots around the entire house and no glitches. My only gripe was the initial set-up which didn't go according to instructions, i wasted over 2 hours trying all sorts and was about to return everything to Amazon until I decided to call Linksys support, who told me an "unpublished" setup method that had everything working in 5 minutes, very annoying that they didn't publicize this known issue along with the workaround/fix.

What is the unpublicised set up method?
Took mine out and it's going back. WiFi coverage was great but wired devices would randomly drop off. Gave it one last try and couldn't get any wired devices to connect at all. Wasted hours on it.
I can understand getting mesh systems with really big houses or houses with thick stone walls, but surly a lot of the problems with normal WiFi routers is the bands clashing with neighbours?

Worth getting one of the free apps on your phone first to see the best channel band to set your router up for first before paying out for a mesh system (I understand some people may have to in very heavily populated areas (like flats) or people with massive houses with thick stone walls).

I would have shared it if I could remember it exactly, but in the excitement of getting everything working and then configuring all my devices I didn't note down the method (you could try google or linksys support)... from what I recall the method involved setting up the master node (per instructions) then position node 2 next to it and press the reset button 5 (I think) times on node 2, it will connect to the master node within a few seconds, then repeat this for node 3.

How were you connecting the wired devices? I have a load of wired devices that all work fine.
I have 4 of these around the house. Coverage is fantastic... Would buy again. Five stars.
Is the Tri-band (£249) that much better than the dual band (£163.49)?

I'd like to know this too, I think the 3rd band is used for backhaul but does it really make that much difference?

I have the dual band set so not sure if this is worth it for me to upgrade?

I'm assuming the range doesn't change unless maybe the antenae are longer perhaps?

Hi mate. I am thinking of getting this. Can we use Ethernet to create a link and still connect weird devices to these which are connected via ethernet

I’m the same, I also have the dual band and wondered if it is worth the extra £90. I don’t think it will be worth the upgrade for me. My Velop says I have 22 devices connected (with 8ms ping 221 Mbps down and 20 Mbps up) and they all run pretty smooth tbh. So I think il skip this one - great system though.
This better or Netgear orbi?

Yeah I'm thinking the same. Looking at your d/l speed assume you're on cable, virgin maybe? If they increased the range though I would probably be interested. WiFi at the back of the garden isn't great currently.

You can connect them via ethernet as the backhaul I believe and still have a spare ethernet port. But if that's what you want to do you might be better off using wired dedicated access points, these are really to create mesh wifi systems.

Thanks. It’s just one pc that needs a wired connection. Everything else is wireless.
Yep it is Virgin, have you tried changing the channels on the Velop to stop interference, I get good speeds in my garden.

Basically every node has 2 ethernet ports on the underside 1 of the ports can be used to connect to any ethernet device (including routers & switches) and the other can be used for ethernet backhaul (if you have a wired network to plug into).
