Overall, not bad. Parental controls work great. Does have some issues recognizing devices (shows things that don't exist and attributes the wrong name to some devices occasionally). Parental controls saved me money from a wife that just had to get a Disney Circle to do the exact same thing. Thanks! Also having issues connecting remotely ("cloud services down"). Fix that, would ya?
Parental controls are great for controlling Internet access. Would like to see better device identification for connected devices. Most things come up as android and then a number. Once they I find out what they are, I just rename them in the app so I can control the right device easily.
My Velop sucks. The amount of features available are terrible. It will not throw my Xbox One on 5ghz. I had an WRT 3200 that gave me no lag whatsoever and I could pick the 5ghz network on.
Linksys used to be a great company... now all of their products are watered down and worthless. Their main goal is to sell you hardware with service plans to gain residual income from those who purchase their products. Stay away from this garbage.
Shame expected more but the product keep dropping g out no better than by home WiFi but more expensive.. just have a solid white elight on one node
It is difficult to select functions because it is not clear where to touch to access them. Also, when restricting sites for certain computers using parental controls, there is no clear information to know if site restriction is only active while time blocking is on or if site restriction works independently from time management. Other than these frustrations, I like the app.
