not possible, have to use ur rt56 as main router, then connect to velop for your wifi. velop no VLAN support.

I have connected my velop to my Rt 56. And I'm using the wireless from my velop only..and some of devices ( mostly near my console ) are connected by lan..

Now strangly I cannot cast my YouTube to my Xbox one and my Lg smart t.v. as they are connected by lan..

However in my previous setup ..i could see all devices even my network were supported by 2 different routers..

Can anyone advise what I did wrong ?

I think it's not about size..placement also important.

Velop does double NAT. which means DHCP is also issued by the velop system itself. Devices connected via wifi/lan to velop will not be visible to the devices connected to the router, and vice versa.

To ensure your devices can all see each other, you need to set velop into bridge mode, which is not enabled on user interface but advanced interface. I do not recommend trying out the bridge mode as there are still bugs in it.

You can wait for the firmware update coming along soon, which enables velop to be operated as an AP mode. As such, all your devices can see each other..

thanks for your good advise.. my stop gap measure is to put all the devices on wifi mode now...

btw.. since I am running the rt 56 as the modem.. any bottle neck you see in my system??

I used to be using the maxstream ea 9500 as my main router before this velop..but felt that would be an overkill

N56u can support 1gbps well in wired lan. It should be fine serving velop and your WiFi devices..

How's the speedtest from the velop? Can share your speed test connecting to the 2nd node and first node. I assume you're on 1gbps and you're using wireless to link the nodes and not using wired backhaul.
