Orbi decides which frequency to use which may not be good if it forces you to use 2.4 when your device is 5 ghz capable especially with wi-fi networkcards and Alexa and Fire TV. Did not work in my case. But definitely removes bad spots in your home. It was a shame but I had to return my system which had the cable modem built in over 400.00 setup. Had to put my original router back in, definitely not for gamers and did not support phones. But I think other mesh network devices are a great idea like Velop from Linksys.
