The Velop Mesh system uses an Android or iOS app. There is no WebGUI for this solution.
Setup starts with the above screen. We first need a Linksys account.
Once we have an account, we move on to actual setup with the app acting like a wizard to guide you through.
Gather everything that came in the box and set it up where you want it. I set up all three nodes in my kit but only plugged the one with the modem connection into power at this point.
Moving through the setup procedure, the app will ask you where your nodes are located.
Once you push through the setup of the first and main node, the Velop system will ask if you want to add other nodes. If you bought a multi-node kit, this is where you will add those extras into your network.
The dashboard in the app gives you a glimpse of what's going on in your network.
After setup, you can run through channel finder as seen above to optimize channels for each node.
Here we have all the connected devices. It's worth noting you won't get many wired devices with Velop unless you add a network switch.
The built-in speed test takes a short amount of time to run but is needed if you decide you want to use QoS.
Parental controls are included in the app and can be changed on-the-fly.
As mentioned, device prioritization (or QoS) is included as well.
The admin panel allows you to configure each node individually along with firmware updates as needed.
