Review: Linksys Velop Wifi Router Extends Wifi All the Way to My Bedroom

James and I signed up for a WiFi Broadband four months back when we got our keys
and we were given a free router for the plan we signed up for. We did
not think too much of it and installed the free router at home. Everything was good


I love browsing YouTube and Instagram before I sleep but it is impossible to do so
when I started having issues with the connectivity. Sometimes there is some weak
connection in the room, but on most days, the connection can’t seem to reach my
bedroom at all..

Long story short, we live in a 3 bedroom apartment and the size is exactly the same as a 4 room HDB flat. As you know, new flats are way smaller so I thought it is impossible to not have any WiFi connection in the room.

I have to scroll through Instagram, YouTube and read emails before I turn in every night and it has become a habit. Not having WiFi connection is a huge issue to me and it doesn’t help when I don’t have unlimited data on my mobile plan.

I started searching for a reliable WiFi router and I was quite concerned about the appearance of techy stuff as I do not want it to ruin my home theme. A few brands came to my mind but Linksys Velop was highly recommended to me by my friends as they know the look and feel of my home. I was still contemplating if I should spend the additional money on a new router but when I saw how Linksys Velop Tri-Band looks, I went for it right away. They are so sleek looking that they do not look like routers at all! I would think that they look like some minimalist looking speakers. Haha.

I absolutely do not mind the minimalist design of Linksys Velop Tri-Band since they come in white and the theme of my place is purely black, cream/white and grey with some elements of gold decorations. I mean, how wrong can you go with white when it is quite a neutral color!

As compared to my previous free router with ugly antennas sticking out, I have no complains for the design of Linksys Velop. Love how simple it looks!

Even the setting up was pretty fuss-free. If a tech-idiot like me can fix it up, so can you.

It is easy to tell if you are having WiFi connection or not. If the light on the node shows blue, everything is working well. However if it shows red, it means that there may be something wrong with your internet connection.

What I love about Linksys Velop is that at any point in time when you feel that you need a stronger signal in another room, you can simply add on another node (the white linksys thing you see in the pictures).

I have 2 nodes at home right now. One sits in the living room, connected to the main cable, while the other one sits in my make up room (next to my bedroom). The connection is way stronger and faster than before too. I can watch movies smoothly on the tv without the sites pausing to load every 20-30 minutes and I can even use my laptop in my bedroom now! (Yay to settling blogposts in the comfort of my own bed hehe).

What’s beautiful about the Linksys Velop is that it is a one-time investment, if you are shifting to a bigger place, you can still bring them along and add on another node to the set. You do not have to chuck them aside and get another brand new set of  WiFi router.

You can also control your Linksys Velop Tri-Band through Linksys mobile app when your device is on.

Some function includes controlling your WiFi from anywhere and parental controls where the parents can manage their kids’ access and usage. Guest Access works the best for me. I can turn on the Guest Access via the mobile whenever I have friends in my house – I don’t have to share my password with them 😛


Internet security is ensured when you use Linksys as they have automatic firmware updates. You do not have to do anything, the node will update on its own!

I have been using Linksys Velop Tri-Band for a few weeks now and I have no complaints! What can I complain about when everything is so user-friendly, all the way from the set up to controlling the account via a mobile app.

After all, my request is simple, just give me a beautiful set of WiFi Router that grants
me stronger and faster WiFi connection at the comfort of my own home and on my
bed too! 🙂
