    I spent a week researching mesh WiFi and reading every article I could find. Finally narrowed it down to the Orbi and the Google. I chose the Orbi for its dedicated tri-band. Installed it today and I’m very happy with the result. I had an Asus router that performed great until a month ago. Everything got super slow. But with this upgrade, I’ve got speed to burn. I’ve attached a photo and you can see where the install took place. From 25mbps to 180... Save yourself some time and head scratching and buy the Orbi

    For tv

    I purchased a new 4K UHD smart television from Best Buy and had it installed by the Geek Squad. My connection to the TV was to be solely by wifi. My Comcast router signal was less than 25 mbps at the television and thus unable to support the required data flow. The installers recommended I purchase an Orbi router to boost my connection speeds and I immediately went back to Best Buy and purchased an Orbi AC2200 3 pack. I admit that I am not technically savvy, but the installation instructions are terrible. I downloaded the app on my smart phone and repeatedly went through the installation process. Finally, after two hours, I thought it was successfully installed. The app attempted to do a firmware update, but it failed. Then the app asked me if I wanted to change my password and I did. Immediately, the entire Orbi router lost it's connection and I was unable to get it to respond to my attempts. I had to manually reset the router and then it would respond, but I could not get it installed. At this point, I had wasted about three hours and was ready to return the product to Best Buy. However, at that time, one of the installers phoned me looking for a tool he had lost. I explained my problem and he offered to come back the next morning to install the router (for an additional fee.) I agreed, and they came the next morning to install it. It took them a couple of hours to get everything running. My house is single story and just over 4000 square feet and I bought a router to support a 6000 square foot house. At one point, I moved the satellite across the room and then two hours later, there was no internet connection in the room where the new TV was located. I had plenty of data speed, over 46 mbps, but no internet and it was working in the rest of the house. I called the Geek Squad and they said to try moving the satellite, so I moved it back to the original position and internet service was restored to that room. I went to the Netgear website while I was trying to install and instructions said old wifi must be turned off. The installers said that was bogus and it would require Comcast reset my security system if I did that. Today, I have both the old and new routers running wifi successfully. All in all, while I'm not great with new technology, I am an educated adult and it should not have been such a torture to simply install a router. Additional problems with the Orbi AC2200 3 pack: 1) product is visually intrusive (main is 8"x7"x3.5" & satellites are 7"x6"x2.5") 2) wall plugs are oversized and require too much distance for furniture placement when in use 3) not sure the emitted light signal is accurate (since I had no light signal when I lost my internet connection) Pros for the Orbi AC2200 3 pack: 1) greatly improved wifi speed throughout my house (download speed of 80 mbps at furthest distance from router & others avg 170 mbps) I would not recommend this product.

    I consider myself a WIFI expert and usually opt for the biggest and most expensive routers until my friend Michael at our local Best Buy store told me about Orbi and that he had set it up in his house. It literally took me 20-30 minutes to completely install and I kept my WIFI ID and password the same so I didn't have to change or reconnect any of our devices. We live in a single level 3,800 sq ft house and we now have full bars of WIFI throughout the entire house. Our security cameras work better and we get WIFI about 200-ft outside of the house. I could not be more happy and one key is to download the Orbi application before install. This is sooooo much better than extenders or line extenders. We also had a PC desktop which we were going to have to buy a WIFI antenna for the MOB and then suffer the extender signal degradation but we were able to put one of the satellites in that room and hardwire it directly. After a speed test we are getting a solid 115Mbs which is awesome! This system also handles 5 iPhone's, 4 laptops, 10 WIFI security cameras, 2 Xbox's, and our old $450 dollar router barely handled it. Cannot recommend this enough and this truly has revolutionized WIFI in our home!!!!

    This Orbi combo kit is a pretty good performer. Excellent for streaming and fast download speeds. Great for gaming too. Being able to run a wire to your device from the satellite orbis is an excellent feature, as it really helps gaming performance! Only reason I gave it four stars is because you have to find a sweet spot for the satellite orbis or else they might have problems staying connected to the main router Orbi, and that may not be in a location that you prefer in that room. But find that sweet spot and it won't disappoint. Parental control, phone app, and guest network features are really great to have!

    we did not pick this... it was part of our in-home consultation set-up. it seemed to work fine with our ring doorbell for a while but soon our signal strength got weaker albeit still acceptable according to ring but one satellite was just on the other side of the wall :(. our issue was when there would be a power surge or outage, we had to disconnect all the units and resync the satellites which could be about 5 mins (i never timed it) but seemed liked forever. very frustrating. at another best buy store we were told that while the main modem is tri-band, the satellites were dual-band—no other agent would verify that. anyway, i can neither recommend nor not recommend as i am not a technical geek but we switched to the eero tri-band mesh.

    Dead spots

    Living in a large older brick house with metal lathe and plaster walls, good wifi coverage has been hard to achieve. We had a good enough system that we had put together with a router and a couple of access points, but there were still dead spots, and there were awkward "hand offs" from one access point to another that sometimes required us to log off of one and onto another. The Orbi AC2200 with two satellites has solved those problems for us. We have more even coverage throughout the house, and devices never seem to struggle with diminishing signal as we move from room to room. The signal strength outside the house is noticeably stronger. Set up was easy, and monitoring and adjusting the system through the iPhone app is simple too. We have six wifi users in our house and approximately thirty devices, and everyone is glad that we installed the Orbi.

    If you are looking to cover a large area with wifi and hold great speeds this is a great setup. I have a three story home and it blankets the entire house easily with good speeds. If you game this may not be the setup for you. Even hardwired from a satellite to my pc I experienced 60-70ms latency consistently. The transfer of info from the hub to the satellites is the cause. If you can put the hub close enough to the pc it will likely fix the issue. I ended up going with a dedicated gaming router and the problem is resolved

    Dead spots, For tv, Price

    Wow, have 3 electronics in the living room, each with a different reception of the Internet. 1 TV and 2 computers. My computer got 17MPS, the TV got about 15 and the other computer about 80MPS. All within 30 feet of each other. Put the Netgear ORBI together in minutes and got all three to re-test with Speedtest by OOkla. My computer went from 17 to over 100MPS. Our cable Internet company guarantees 50MPS so for both computers to hit 100MPS was astonishing. The TV, since we dropped cable, actually runs with no dead time. We are running ROKU and YouTubeTV with absolutely no problems. My only sob story is 2 weeks later, for Thanksgiving, the price came down 70 dollars. Going to add Firestick, tomorrow and I don't miss cable prices. We are also running one of the satellites on the 2nd floor and for the first time ever, we have the Internet throughout the entire house!

    I picked this up to go into a larger house that we were moving into. It was easy to set up, but as some other reviewers mentioned, it took a couple attempts to find the ideal locations. Once everything was connected and in range it works great and allows good wi-fi coverage throughout the entire house.

    Very happy with this purchase! WiFi issues are a fact of modern life these days. In our ever-more-connected homes, dependable WiFi is both critical and nearly impossible. It used to be that a wireless network had a couple of laptops and a printer, but now there are multiple TVs streaming 4K, smartphones, printers with their own hotspots, doorbells, smart thermostats, etc. And that doesn't count all the interference from devices in your neighbor's homes. In my case, that meant that despite having a 100mpbs internet connection I was seeing download speeds of 5-8 mbps in my upstairs home office - and lots of times where the connection was lost altogether. With Orbi, I don't just have one WiFi accesss point. Instead, there is a base station and two satellites, giving me three different ways to connect. Each unit is a router in its own right, and the satellites also provide for wired Ethernet access too. Best of all, they use their own 5Ghz backhaul frequency, while providing seamless 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz connections to my devices. My coverage is uniformly good throughout my home, and in the yard and out front too. Setup took just a short time, and while Orbi offers a smartphone app for configuration, you don't really need one. The Orbi units display their setup status with color-coded displays. For more advanced users, you can access the full suite of advanced router capabilities through a web interface. I have recommended this product to friends and co-workers many times. You will not be sorry!

    The mesh system covers our 4,000 sq. ft. home. The app allows us to label each devise and have a guest network with a separate name. We love the pause button which we use to turn off the WiFi when our kids need to get off. You can also use free services and link with Circle for more controls.

    This was setup for an office, but works equally as well for home use. I used a wired backhaul between the units to maximize speed, but the wireless backhaul seemed to work well, too when I tested it.

    We have plaster walls which significantly reduced our wifi's reach. We have had other boosters which have helped some, but we still had problems with dropped connections. Once we started using the Orbi we have consistently had great connections -a nd we can access wifi throughout our entire yard. Love it - worth every penny!

    Fantastic WiFi MESH system for large home!

    I originally purchased and installed an EERO system a few years ago. This system worked great for 3 years, but then suddenly stopped communicating with my 2.4Ghz devices (SkyBell, LIFX light bulbs). A few days later it stopped communicating with ANY device. After spending time with EERO support they determined that their devices were having issues choosing a 'clear channel' to broadcast on and - get this - recommended I visit each of my neighbors (condo complex) to see if they would limit their WiFi router signals. Needless to say, this did not happen. I then did a quick search of other MESH devices and found this ORBI system. I ran over to the local BB and purchased the ORBI set that included 1)Router and 2)full sized Satellites. I unplugged all the EERO devices (also 3 in total) and plugged in the new ORBI devices. I downloaded the ORBI app to my Android phone. I followed the instructions presented. Within a half hour all three ORBI devices were up and running, linked together, and on-line! All my WiFi devices (including my 2.4Ghx only ones - SkyBell, LIFX light bulbs, etc.) all connected and were working again! Just like magic! I have been using the ORBI WiFi system now for almost 2 weeks and have ZERO COMPLAINTS! Everything just works!

    I live in a three-floor house, with 7-8 people using up to 12 devices at the same time. Before I used the Orbi router and two satellites, my WiFi speed was 100MB/s near the modem and around 35MB/s in my room with a 2G Internet. Afterwards, it was 225MB/s bear the router and up to 200MB/s in my room. Then I upgraded to 5G Internet, and many of the devices have Internet WiFi speeds between 400MB/s and 500MB/s. Needless to say, it was a good choice for routers.

    Setup was a little complicated and unresponsive at times. But after resetting and starting over a few times the device performs amazing. Having the main router and lower level of home with one satellite wired through Ethernet. That is around 30 ft away and then another one that is out in the garage which is about another 30 feet away getting full download speeds and upload speeds of my ISP Max 200 Max per second. This device also allows you to connect to modem/ router as an access point only allowing the main modem/router to assign IP addresses. The orb app is a great necessity, you can name all devices to see what's connected and disconnected to what satellite also separating the type of connection such as wired 2.4G and 5G. You can also use the Netgear Genie app. Great product for the price customer service or customer support was probably one of the lacking items. Troubleshooting was mostly done by myself just really wanted to see what they would say and of course they said contact your ISP for that is the issue you were having unfortunate that was incorrect. But they pushed it as if that was the only solution. Eventually figured out the issue support never returned my call.
