Linksys Velop boosts home network throughput


EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the third in a series on smart home networking: Our introductory article set the decor for this series, and the second one focuses on home hubs.

If you are going to invest in smart home tech, you want a solidly performing wireless network throughout your house. There are two ways to increase performance: one is to optimize the connection between you and your ISP. The other is to provide better wireless coverage and boost the signal inside your home.

To address the first issue, I’ve been using IQrouter, which automatically adjusts for the minimum network latency between your home router and your ISP.

To boost in-home coverage, I tried out a new product from Linksys called Velop. It is a mesh-connected set of controllers, sold in packages of up to three different access points that can be easily assembled to distribute a wireless signal throughout your home, no matter how big or how many stories.
