i just registered to give some suggestions and ideas regarding Bridge Mode:
First, I compared many Mesh system like Netgear Orbi, Ubiquiti UniFi, Amplifi AFi-R ., but only Linksys Velop was the best Deal.
I have a lancom VDSL VPN Router 1783VA. So i wanted a Wifi AP but also a simple Guest Wifi option.
All other solutions can build up different SSID and guest wifi, but mostly via Vlan.
But Vlan doens't mean simple. WithVelop bridge Mode > Easy Way to get Local Network wifi and guest access.
My Suggestions (Wishes) :
1. I want to see my Wifi connected Clients. This is a feature all AP Wifi devices have today.
2. See how is the connection speed between my nodes. How to optimize the positon.
3. Guest Wifi : > Why no WPS option for Guest Accounts?
4. Scheduler for my wifi.
Just these 4 Simple points and I'm 100% happy with my velop Nodes.

To add to this, support for remote administration (via smartwifi). As far as I can tell, smartwifi is pointless in bridge mode at the moment.
I disagree. I have remote velop nodes that are in a vacation home (150 miles away). Smartwifi is the only way I can manage the velop nodes. It has more functionality than the phone app.
