How Can I Setup A Wired Linksys Velop System

The nodes of Velop system can easily be connected through Ethernet cables. As a matter of fact, wiring nodes with each other properly can boost up the speed and range of the Velop system to a greater extent and reduces the risk of wireless interference caused by third-party Bluetooth or WiFi devices.

Are The Nodes Essential For Linksys Velop System Setup Process

Yes, they are. Despite the fact, you are supposed to set up the additional nodes as well making use of a wireless connection.

After the Linksys Velop system setup, connect the nodes with each other using well-maintained Ethernet cables. As soon as you are done with it, the nodes will securely switch to a wired connection automatically.

Directions For Setup

Step 1

First of all, using an up-to-date Linksys application you are supposed to set up your primary node.

Step 2

After that, using the same application, consider adding a secondary node through wireless setup.

Step 3

  • Once the setup process is completed successfully, you have to move the secondary node to a location.

  • Next, connect it to a electric power source.

Step 4

  • Now, what you are going to do, making use of an Ethernet cable, connect the secondary and primary node with each other.

  • Both the nodes will switch to a secured wired connection automatically.

Step 5

In case, you have other nodes to add, then it is recommended to repeat the second and the third step.

As soon as the node is set up successfully in its intended location, then consider connecting it with through an Ethernet cable to upstream node.

Congratulations! You have successfully set up your wired Linksys Velop system.

Important Note

Make use either of CAT5e or higher-voltage cables only.


  • This type of cable is known as category 5 cables. In addition, CAT5e cable is known as twisted pair cables that is commonly used for carrying internet/ WiFi signals.

  • As a matter of fact, in today’s scenario, most people used CAT5e cable in structured cabling in the world of computer networks, for example, Ethernet.

  • In addition, it provides performance up to 100 megahertz (Mhz).

On the other hand, it is suitable also for:

  • 10Base-T.

  • 100Base-TX.

  • Gigabit 1000Base-T.

High-voltage cables

  • A cable HV (high-voltage) cable is a cable that is used for electric power transmission at a very high voltage.

  • Despite the fact, this type of cable includes a conductor and insulation as well.

  • Additionally, it has the capability of running underground or underwater without being damaged.

Some Important Points

  • The nodes supposed to be plugged properly in to an damaged-free electrical outlet.

  • They are not capable of providing power over the non-PoE device (Ethernet).

  • Conversely, they can use unmanaged or managed switches.

Important Questions And Their Answers

1. What Does The Term Upstream Means

  • Well, in computer networks, the term ‘upstream‘ refers to transmitting data from the client device or local computer/ laptop to the server.

  • Despite the fact, the ‘upstream’ transmissions might’s take several forms and the speed at which data is transferred.

  • ‘Upstream’ is converse or different from the term ‘downstream’.

2. What Does the Term non-PoE Means

A POE (power over internet) switch is a network switch, which has built-in ‘Power over Ethernet’.

As a matter of fact, ‘PoE’ is a technology for wired Ethernet LANs (local area networks). It allows the power (electrical current) important for the operation of each device that is to be carried by data cables not by power cords.

Doing so will minimize the number of wires that is physically strung to install a home network.

3. What Are Managed And Unmanaged Swtiches

  • A ‘managed switch’ is a switch that allows you have better control over your network and the traffic moving within it.

  • An ‘unmanaged switch’ is a switch that allows all the Ethernet devices to communicate with each other automatically through auto-negotiation.

4. What Is Auto-negotiation

It is a procedure and signaling mechanism that is used by Ethernet securely over twisted pair through which two connected devices (wired or wireless) choose transmission parameters commonly, like:

  • Flow control.

  • Speed.

  • Duplex mode.
