Decent price for the top of the range 3 node Velop system. Currently cheaper than the 2 pack of nodes.

Isn't this a problem with wired backhaul?

paulbohs

The reviews are scaring me off. I have cancelled my order. 180mb being reduced to between 3 and 20 because of backhaul in reviews. I don’t know what this means but if anyone has 1of these sets I’d be interested in hearing about your experience. We have way too many devices in the home and sometimes the ps4 buffers when playing my brother in Peruso looking at this as a solution.

killerferret

I recently got the Tenda Nova MW3 Mesh system which is a budget one (£90 for 3 nodes) and honestly anyone with wifi issues look into these systems and you wont go back. The range these things cover is amazing and so nice to wander round with the device auto switching to strongest node, not multiple access points etc... Tri band / Dual band debate - Most homes only really need dual band, you need a lot of wireless devices using the connection at the same time to max it out and most of the time your internet connection (which is what most people use a device for) is what is the limiting factor. Good price for this model so heat added, although the BT whole Home wifi gets better speed in tests for a bit less from what i read.

kgo

Although this is a good price for sure, someone to be reviews say that using 3 nodes will reduce the performance overall. I am tempted to get it though. Is there anyone who has actually bought a triple set and can give a first hand review of it? I was going to wait for the Netgear Orbi to come down in price a little but I am considering this

justhelping

Generally the Whole Home system has worked well, but recent updates have caused big problems with printing, and not recognising printers etc. It does switch the device across to the nearest disc which works well

Thanks OP

Crooky

I'm in the market for a new router, I had a look at this one a couple of weeks ago - specs looked very promising but when I started digging into the reviews, lots of owners claiming that this product is very unreliable unfortunately. Keen to hear if anyone on here has had a different experience, this does look like plenty bang for the buck on the surface.

Not sure how these compare to the tenda MW3 setup...but I got a pack of 3 of them last week for £90 on Amazon and they are incredibe! Wiped out 3 blackspots and internet seems much more responsive.

What's the speed/throughput like with the LRs?

Oneday77

I just know it works and leave the Voodoo to the product designers.

gwapenut

My understanding is that each Ubi access point is only really as strong as the best of other routers such as HH6, but that they are one of the few providers who have got the weak signal handover right between multiple access points, so that adding more access points actually works?

Oneday77

HH6 was giving single ‘bar’ in some rooms. Patchy coverage in the garden. Now I have full strength in all rooms and garden coverage. (Smart plug for outdoor lights) If I want better in the garden I’ll get an LR which has greater reach. Each AP is at opposing ends of the house, though both on rear side. Front garden suffers a bit because of it but the frequent use areas have the coverage.

Wow all these mesh networks are expensive, wonder who's milking the paintent :/

talksalot81

Good deal but they were 160ish for the dual (months ago- I got 6 in total). When they work, they are great. We have WiFi across the whole house where a single draytek router couldn’t even cover the ground floor (lots of solid walks and floors). My proviso is that they can be a real pain to setup and even worse when it goes wrong. It must have taken several hours of messing before I got all our nodes to talk and it needed them setup right next to each other, then moved to final locations later. Occasionally it all goes wrong. Various nodes start doing strange things and resets don’t always work. In our case, the parent node (as connected to the router) needed powered down fully and this reliably sorts it out. With a larger mesh, this took a lot of working out, not least because that parent node tends to report good health when the issues arise. So good, if a bit buggy. I’d definitely not recommend if you aren’t at least slightly techy.

Was going to get this but then I relaised I dont even know what a backhaul is so im going to get a cheapo plug in extender instead. Google wifi looked slick but for 3 a piece package they want £319 so its a no go for me.

thefunkygibbon

these devices should come built in with Powerline adapters. its pretty unlikely that someone has their house wired up for cat5/6 and as already mentioned, the backhaul would well cause issues with traffic congestion all going back to the single wired connection.

cjed

As others have pointed out, these are a newer dual band unit, rather than the original tri-band Velops. Reviews show much reduced performance :-(

jamhops

Reviews are at a much higher price but look good for a 2 piece set but 3 pieces causes a load on the backhaul... two of mine will be wired so may take a punt as the backhaul will only be used for 1 node... EDIT: Is a new version without the backhaul

defard

WiteWulf

I made a start on figuring it out but (bizarrely) found that tinkering with the LEDs for the radios actually killed the wifi! It's a nkown bug: https://forum.lede-project.org/t/davidc502-wrt1200ac-wrt1900acx-wrt3200acm-wrt32x-builds/15839/192 I need get a look at a WRT32X running the stock firmware with LEDs turned off and see the output of 'cat /etc/config/system' to try and pop it on OpenWRT

rev6

I hate blue LED's. Can't figure a way with LEDE only the stock firmware has a toggle for it. Must be a way!

WiteWulf

...and running a properly tuned SQM QoS system on one of these practically eliminates that. (Sorry, yes, forgot the blue LEDs, which I'm trying to figure out how to turn off as our device sits on a shelf under the telly and they're *very* distracting :-D )

rev6

Software plays a part too ISP routers are usually limited. QoS is important. Bufferbloat is a pain in the rear.

https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/d-link-8-port-gigabit-network-switch-999-prime-1494-non-prime-amazon-2984541 this seems a better deal, £9.99 for an 8 port switch

plewis00

Totally agree. Sky have inexplicably decided to give our Sky Q router just two ports (as well as WiFi with a range to maybe the end of our living room if there’s no people or cats in the way). I put a 5 port hub on it and almost immediately regretted getting a 5 port for £2 less than an 8 port. This was only 10/100 though. Definitely worth getting the 8 port if available and metal cased if only to stop the thing sliding around under the weight of cables.

mogsog

Who needs more than 5 plus the ones on your router? I chuckled to myself years ago. An xbox 3 raspberry Pi's, a roku and 2 APs later, I wish I brought the 8 port. Remember 1 port is uplink its more of a 4 port.

The other option is 'home plugs' of course. It's worth buying good ones, as they're generally hassle free. That is assuming you don't have terrible house wiring! :/

Thanks for that. I've looked up some of the items you mentioned and it seems the complexity and skill required to mount, wire and crimp a whole house with ethernet cable may be beyond the average user. It certainly would be for me (embarrassed) . A decent WiFi router would be so much easier.

Mate I've got a billion 7800n doing wireless in modem mode with super hub 2 from virgin media. Problem is it's so old that anything going via that gets 60mb maximum. This one gets good speed? Was really hoping for a router that can replace the superhub. Want an ad blocker running as the DNS and permanently on VPN. But I think I've got so many devices wired in I actually need two routers... Unless someone thinks get a hub replacement and a cheap switch is better? Need 8 or so ethernet sockets

popolou

This perceived USP is nothing more than a mouse click for non-killer hardware. You then get the same results. In fact, the true USP is the hardware specs and belies its true price a similar bit of kit should sell for. You probably didn’t do your home work and read the spec sheets to know that whatever marketing blurb that is copied and pasted here (and wrongly relied on) will show that this true £250 router is very likely significantly better than the £60 you have from several years ago.

ristac

Exactly why people like yourself are bad for HUKD - Is this cheaper elsewhere? NO Next time you post a deal, read what HUKD asks you to do, they specifically ask you not to post marketing text or specs. I can't believe I am sitting here answering to you because you have a bee in your bonnet about something.

What are the Parental Controls like on this? They were supposed to be available on Virgin Superhub 3 but seem very fiddly to use if not impossible, and the ones I have set up don't seem to work. Just to stop my son being playing Fortnite/watching videos about playing Fortnite 24/7. Also does it work well with Amazon Echo? I had to separate out the two bands on the Superhub and disable the firewall before Alexa would come out to play.
