So everything is sort running fine right now aside from one minor issue I would like to fix. I currently have the Linksys Velop Tri-Band Router System installed in my house, but I am not able to run a wired connection between the nodes (satellites) units to get the best wifi signal possible. For some reason, as soon as one of the nodes detects it has been wired to the main, the Ethernet connection drops for the whole system. This normally isn’t a problem for web browsing, but if I want to game on a mobile (wired PC fine) I will randomly get a poor signal.
I tried contacting Linksys to fix the issue, but they gave up and just offered me a refund if I sent it back (they couldn’t replicate the issue and didn’t want to send an engineer or networking expert to record the data in person).
My network setup
1.Verizon FIOS fiber optic cable to outside Verizon FIOS box.
2. Verizon FIOS box outside to Verizon FIOS ONT box inside.
3. Verizon FIOS ONT wan ethernet port to Linksys Velop Main node.
4. Linksys Velop main node Wifi Router to all devices.
Possible Problem I suspect:
One of the testing engineer kept asking me if I had modem or router after the inside ONT box. I said no, but now I am wondering if I was actually supposed to use one for this velop mesh system instead of connecting it directly to the inside ONT box.
Any suggestions before I pay for an another router only to have it a bridgemode?
