The MR7350 is a Mesh Wifi6 router which is designed to work with the Linksys Velop Mesh system as either a primary node (router) or as a secondary node in an existing Velop system.

A power cycle was required after initial setup especially when I configured it as a secondary node with the MR9600. The MR7350 connection to the MR9600 was unstable and the MR7350 LED would flash red when it repeatedly disconnected. After a power cycle the MR7350 was very stable and had a good connection to the MR9600.

I've only tested the MR7350 with the Velop MR9600 and the MX5300 Wifi6 systems but plan to test compatibility with an older Velop system.

The MR7350 has an Internet\WAN port, four 10/100/1000 Mbps LAN ports and a USB3.0 port.
