Your device can seamlessly jump between Velop nodes when you move around the home so mobile switches to the strongest signal. When you use a range extender then the speed of the wifi network will be reduced.

When you connect many devices with a single extender then the network is divided into various parts and it will not provide a good speed of internet. Therefore the Linksys Velop is the best for the high-speed wifi.

If you want to check the speed of Velop then you can do it in two ways. The first method of checking speed is- open the website of Linksys and then fill your Linksys cloud account credentials and hit the sign-in button. Upon login, you will see the dashboard, and here you can click on the speed check.

The second method is the Linksys app. If you have this app on your mobile then you have to open the app and log in to your account. Tap on the main menu and here you can see the option of speed check. By using your mobile you can easily check the speed of the network.
