Linksys Velop Wifi
It’s crucial to comprehend how the hardware functions before you start installing your Linksys Velop mesh network system in your home.
In order to give wireless coverage across your entire home, a mesh network consists of many WiFi broadcast stations placed throughout it, all of whose signals overlap with one another. This is very different from previous WiFi, which often only had a single wireless router that was either connected to or incorporated into your Internet provider’s modem. Depending on how big your house is, having service everywhere may be close to impossible as that one router can only transmit WiFi from where it is in your house.
