Christmas-Proof Your Wireless Network With The New Linksys Atlas Pro Mesh System

Nov 25, 2021

Linksys It’s the time of year when we are all preparing for the busiest time of the year. Whether it be Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hannukah, soon children will be returning to the parental nest, back from college. Elderly parents and difficult in-laws will be coming to stay for the festive season. Soon your house is going to be burgeoning with loads of guests and they’ll all be bringing new smartphones, Black Friday bargains, plus their smartwatches, gaming consoles and iPads. Your poor old wireless network simply won’t be able to cope and will suffer a nervous breakdown. So, before the returning hordes descend upon you, do a bit of preparation and get yourself the latest Linksys Whole Home Mesh Tri-Band System, powered by Velop technology, to beef up your wireless network so that it can cope with the strain that’s going to be put on it when the family gets together again. The Velop Atlas Pro 6 is the fastest mesh system from Linksys that only takes a few minutes to set up to bathe a four to five-bedroom home with a wireless mesh network that can handle up to 90 separate devices. It uses the latest WiFi 6 technology and has the added advantage of using a 160MHz channel width on the 5GHz network to give faster peak data rates without reducing the overall bandwidth. The Velop-powered MX5500 series includes the Atlas Pro 6 product that consists of nodes that can be ... [+] built into a mesh network bringing wireless Internet to every corner of a home. Linksys I looked at the top-of-the-range option which has three Atlas Pro Nodes, sufficient for a large, detached house. If you need more, you can add extra nodes and extend the network further to a conservatory or a garden shed. The system is very scalable and easy to set up. The individual nodes are white and look a little like a tall, square vase for flowers. On the top of each unit is an LED status light to let you know what state the node is in. MORE FROMFORBES VETTED Linksys Setting up a network is simplicity itself. All you need to do is unpack the nodes, plug them into a power socket and download the Linksys smartphone app. The app walks you through the process once you’ve connected one of the nodes to your home router using an Ethernet cable. The setup involves looking for the nodes, identifying them and giving the new mesh network a name and a fresh password. It’s so easy, anyone can do it. The app will even tell you if some of the nodes are too far away or too close to each other. Once set up, you can turn off the wireless function on your home router as you’ll only really be using its modem function for accessing the Internet. Turning off the wireless is a good idea as it gives your Atlas Pro 6 nodes more wireless spectrum to play with. You can add extra nodes to extend the Linsys mesh network system around the home. Start with one, ... [+] two or three packs, then add extra nodes as needed. Linksys WiFi 6 means you get the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands lashed together to create what’s called the “fronthaul”. The wireless signal that your smartphone, laptop, security camera or whatever uses to connect with each node. The nodes communicate back to the main router using a “backhaul” signal to get data to and from the Internet. Each Linksys Atlas Pro 6 node has three Ethernet LAN ports and a WAN port for connecting to the ... [+] Internet via a VDSL router or a cable modem. Linksys The new WiFi 6 standard can send and receive multiple streams of data at the same time while providing four times more wireless capacity. This is super-strength technology that beats the pants off the old WiFi 5 standard. You do need WiFi 6 devices, such as smartphones or laptops, to get the best from the new standard, but the chances are your current smartphone may already support WiFi 6. Apple has certainly been including it in iPhones for the past couple of years and I think all new smartphones and laptops are WiFi 6 compatible. Once the network is set up and running, you don’t need to do anything. The Linksys Atlas Pro 6 is AX5400 which means it has a theoretical top speed of 5.4Gbps, which can more than handle the Internet speed delivered to your home. The extra speed is leveraged by coping with more data traveling between the three nodes. In practice, this means, no more buffering when streaming 4K movies, even if someone is streaming another 4K movie in another room. With the ability to handle up to 90 devices, there should be enough bandwidth to cover the busiest of homes, even including security cameras, wireless speakers, smart TVs, home computers, laptops, tablets and smartwatches. It’s surprising how much wireless technology we use in our homes. Go around your house and count all the gadgets that are connected to the network, everything from the washing machine to the heating thermostat. Our homes are getting smarter but they’re also requiring a lot more bandwidth. The Linksys Atlas Pro 6 establishes a mesh network throughout the entire home and will use just one network name. This means you can roam from room to room and your smartphone will always latch on to the fastest and strongest signal. You never need to switch wireless networks as it’s all handled automatically by the mesh. The top of each Linksys Atlas Pro 6 node has a status light so you know when it's online or offline. Linksys If you’re lucky enough to have a wired Ethernet network in your home, you can use that as the backhaul for your nodes as each node includes four gigabit Ethernet ports. One of the ports is for a WAN (wide area network) and that’s the one you plug your broadband router or cable modem into. The other three ports are for linking devices that don’t use wireless, such as older laser printers or maybe a network-attached storage device. The Ethernet ports are very handy if a part of your home is a long way from the main router. You can plug a node into a wired network or even create a wired network using something called a PowerLine adapter. This small device plugs into any power socket and turns the domestic electrical wiring circuit into an Ethernet network. By plugging in another PowerLine adapter into any power socket, you can create an Ethernet socket. This is a great way of adding a node to a summerhouse in the garden or maybe in the garage, especially if it’s a little way from the house. The speeds PowerLine offers are quite fast and it’s a great way of extending the network and keeping the mesh qualities and single name for your wireless network. Verdict: The new Linksys Velop Atlas Pro 6 Whole Home Mesh Network System is a dream to set up and it hardly took me any time at all to get going. The speeds on offer are very fast and the inclusion of 160MHz channel width helps reduce WiFi congestion. This must be one of the best and affordable whole-home dual-band mesh systems on the market. Tri-band would have been even nicer but would probably have pushed the price a little too high. The whole system is powered by a Qualcomm processor which ensures more stability and speed. If you’re looking for an easy and affordable way to beef up your wireless network at home, this easy-to-use package is an ideal solution and should be powerful enough for most families.
