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.

Very good price, especially for the Triband version!

Wow. Attractive price for the tri-band offering for those who need it.

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! :/

SandorClegane

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.

As someone who rents I have a lot of ethernet cable running around in that style of trunking that's curved to blend into your skirting boards.

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

You would connect one to the modem. And the other to the other router.

RedRain

How do you connect 2 routers to the one virgin hub ?

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.

Just thought I'd update my experience bought Huawei Hg612 off eBay. Followed these instructions https://kitz.co.uk/routers/hg612hacking.htm plugged ethernet from hg612 into Linksys internet port and all works flawlessly now. WiFi connection so much faster and pages load up a lot quicker. I'm on TalkTalk faster fibre, well worth the effort.

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.

Ubiquiti is the techy/pro way, and will end up being cheaper and more configurable. But needs some knowledge and time. I've been using this Velop (the 3pack version) for half a year, and it works well. I have a three storey townhouse, 180sqm, 5 bedrooms, and placing two on oppoosite ends of the ground floor and one on the top floor gives coverage everywhere. Some niggles: - occasionally one of the nodes lose connection, and has to restart. I've encountered this about 3 times in the last 6 months (and who knows how many times its restarted when I'm not using my device) - The passing of signal from Velop to Velop has alot to be desired, sometimes it still stays connected to a Velop with much lower signal, even when I'm in the same room as another Velop! But I think it is also a function of the OS and your receiving device - if it doesn't want to give up the connection to the weaker Velop, there's nothing the Velops can do. - There's parental controls, and also through the app you can manually switch off connections (and also set times I believe) - Throughput is good. I have around 70mpbs BT fibre. When my laptop gets full wifi signal to my Velop, I get around 60mbps speeds downloading. - I don't game, so can't comment on the lag - My three Velop setup is handling about 11 connected devices pretty good - I use an ethernet backhaul for all three Velop. My setup is the BT HomeHub, the 3x Velops, and a neatgear 16-switch.

FunkiestMonkey

I have amended my misleading post. I meant their bt home wifi mesh solution.

Oneday77

You can configure the APs from a phone App. They then store all the config you need. The controller is optional but give much finer control if wanted.

Oneday77

I’ve had the Homehub 5 & 6. A terrible recommendation unless it is had for free. Even then the signal won’t be good enough for some.

It doesn't. You need the 3200 version for that. I don't care at the moment.

jokerevo

so this doesn't have MU-MIMO but does that really matter?

2minutenoodles

Most likely interference. The BT hub isn’t as smart as it says it is, I had a similar issue solved by simply changing the channel in the hub menu manually. Type 192.168.l.254 into a browser and use login info on the back of the router. If you have an Iphone the Apple airport utitility app has a nifty simple trick of checking channels on nearby networks if you have the same channel as one of them it could be the issue. You want to choose a channel that you don’t see as often (or preferably at all) in the list to lessen any interference. There are lots of other ways of checking nearby channels. You may have already tried this step. Hope this helps. Edit: If this doesn’t work then I recommend a full factory reset and if no joy it is probably a hardware issue.
