Equipped with eight Gigabit-Ethernet ports, the MX8400 supports wired connections up to 10x faster than standard Ethernet.

To create a mesh system, you will need at least two Velop nodes: one node is connected to your ISP provided equipment and acts as a router. Each additional node finds the best channel and path to wirelessly connect to the previous one, creating a seamless and reliable WiFi connection throughout your entire home. These nodes create a single wireless network with one SSID and password. Each Velop WiFi 6 Tri-Band Series node has identical functionalities, so it doesn’t matter which one you connect to the ISP equipment.
The Linksys MX8400 is compatible with WiFi-connected smart devices, such as smart lights, cameras, and smart TVs.
With the Linksys App, you can closely monitor and manage your home WiFi remotely, using a smartphone or tablet. Easy to use features include:
