    Using the Linksys Velop and it's much, much more powerful. I think the Gen 2 of the eero was introduced to compete with more powerful systems like the Velop.

    Still working with Linksys on speed issues. I am willing to try something else.... I am not going to spend the exorbitant amount of money that Dave Upton suggested with his network setup. But I am determined to do this, and I think I can do it on the cheap. I can buy this ethernet cable...

    Mike, Remarkably, I don't see a huge increase in page loads. It is just about instantaneous, though. Where I really see the difference is when I click on a file to download and the progress bar R A C E S across the screen in seconds instead of minutes.

    Well, I am now on the Velop network. I ditched my Eero devices. I don't want to say too much at the moment because I want to do a separate review on this forum. There is also more tweaking that needs to be done. I can tentatively say that the Velop is more powerful than the Eero. I am...

    If I can get 500-800 MBPS WiFi speed, consistent, throughout my home with Velop, then I will be happy. With Eero, I can't get above 90 MBPS with a 1GB network. I will know for certain by Wednesday and I will report back. My Velop will be delivered tomorrow. Let's just say that this is the...

    Here is a response from the Linksys community. Please note, I don't agree nor disagree with this response. I am in uncharted territory and until I actually get to test the Velop out next week, I am not saying anyone is correct or incorrect.

    I gotta do something. I am up to 1GB Internet coming into the home and I can't enjoy it. My home layout doesn't make it easy to run ethernet from one end of the house to the other. I am going to give the Linksys Velop a try next Wednesday. Some claim that you can get close to 1GB speeds on...

    Dave, I will send you the floorplan within 24 hours. Someone asked me about my connections. First, the router is Verizon's top-of-the-line Fios router. They just sent it to me a few weeks ago. They tout it as their most advanced router to date. No, it doesn't have the power or antennas of...

    Wow. That is expensive. However, worth the price if I can get the Internet coverage I want. Let me play with the Linsksys Velop and get back to everyone. I will buy it next week. There are customers on Amazon claiming it can handle 980 MBPS house wide. I realize that can be a stretch, but...

    That's a good question. Right now, the best answer I can give is that Internet speed is becoming much cheaper. With so many companies out there competing, Verizon (for instance) just put out an outrageous offer of 918MBPS for $70 bundled with their packages. Obviously, they are trying to...

    Problem is, Dave, I can't get ethernet to the farthest reaches of my home. Had a Verizon tech out and he couldn't figure out how to wire it. It is tough since there's a bi-level addition. So, I have to find *something* to deliver the fastest connection possible. It is strange, some of these...

    U P D A T E Not great news. When I originally reviewed eero I was on a Verizon Internet plan of 75 MBPS. At that speed, the entire eero network worked flawlessly. It wasn't until, two weeks ago, when I upgraded to Verizon's 330 MPBS plan that I noticed a major flaw in this mesh system. The...

    Rodney, Yes, you need a router with Internet connection before you even consider eero. Your eero essentially plugs into a vacant port on your router and distributes the signal throughout the home. Your concern is a little confusing for me. No matter how eero gets hooked up, you will always...

    A McMansion? No. A large multi-level home? Yes. At the current price point, I wouldn't readily recommend everyone get an eero either. The technology is still new (at least on the consumer side), and as thus, there's a premium to be paid. However, many other competitors have entered the...

    George, This is all new, but very popular technology. I don't know much about Amplifi. There is another product called Luma that launched shortly after eero did. One might be a little cheaper than the other, but I implore you to read reviews on all of them and don't make a decision based on...

    I just want to reiterate that my eero home setup is INCREDIBLE! WiFi download speeds that match wired (usually well over 57 mbps) I called tech support about one of the WiFi security cameras in my home. He asked me my upload speed. I told him it was over 80 mbps (that was what was reading at...

    Dave, I have to be honest, there is a lot here that I cannot address due to my limited knowledge on the topic. Well, not totally limited. I haven't had the luxury of being able to wire my home completely with ethernet. I have one single feed coming into an upstairs router and from there, in...
