When I installed the Orbi system in my home, I turned off Wifi in my U-verse router to enable the Orbi to assume that role which it is intended to do using a mesh throughout the home. I then connected the main unit to my modem, changed the settings and then installed the 2 additional satellites. Prior to having the Orbi, my wifi was absolutely horrendous, I was constantly having to reboot. We had one bedroom which received no signals at all. With an abundance of cell phones, iPads, computers, playstation and TV's all competing for space in a multi-story home, the U-Verse system was overwhelmed and unable to handle more than 2 or three at a time. Since installing Orbi, I no longer have to reboot period! The system allows us to connect from anywhere within the home to include the garage using seemingly unlimited sources. The family is no longer frustrated and there are no restraints. What a fantastic improvement this has made for us.
Take the time in setting an Orbi system up and you should be rewarded handsomely.
