I purchased this product to improve the range of our WiFi. After a bit of research I decided to install tri-band mesh WiFi technology selecting the Netgear Orbi.
The setup of the product was quick and easy requiring me to install the Orbi app then follow the bouncing ball. It took about 10 minutes and I did not experience any setup problems.
Once set up, the product delivered in spades providing uninterrupted WiFi throughout the house at super fast speeds (100 Mbps although this will depend on the plan and speeds you have selected with your ISP).
I thought the app is pretty cool too. It provides vision of who is using the network, has the ability to assign guest logins, allows for router setting adjustments plus more.
I bought this to replace an aging AirPort Extreme. I also needed to fill the coverage gaps for our unconventional footprint. The Orbi fitted the bill perfectly. It is simple to install, wifi coverage is excellent over a large area and the Ethernet ports on the both the main router and the satellite are most welcome. The kids mightn’t like it but the parental control tools are quite good. I had already decided the the Orbi was the way to go and it hasn’t disappointed. The fact that I got it for a bargain price made it a complete no-brainer.
Fantastic! I replaced an outdated Airport Express Network, that just wasn't meeting our needs. Once I did my research, I decided on the Orbi product and have to say, I am not disappointed. We live in a large double story brick and concrete house, and now I even have fantastic reception in our driveway. Speeds are what we pay for and no buffering when we are streaming! Oh and the App is extremely easy to navigate. No complaints here.
had issues of not getting good wifi coverage around the house and multiple areas of dead zones, but since switching to orbi i'm getting good constant wifi signals and speed throughout! only down side is that the satellite needs to be relatively close to work wirelessly but i got around it by using a wire connection to the satellite and manage to get good coverage that way. very satisfied with the product!
Fast and easy to setup.. the Orbi unit auto recognised my existing modem and configured itself. All I needed was the Orbi app to finish it.. amazing. Quite stable network connectivity and good range with the satellite unit. Apparently Orbi switches automatically and seamlessly between 5GHz & 2GHz network which is fantastic.
The wifi coverage and speeds are amazing from the mesh wifi system. It has improved the accessibility for all of my wifi devices (20+ in use) with the single wifi channel that picks the best speed based on the device type. The setup process was easy, and I can control everything via an app on my phone. I wish I had updated to this sooner. Highly recommended if looking in this space!
Good connectivity, and relatively easy step up. A little disappointed by the satellite performance - the diagram on the box shows it having connectivity across a floor of a two story building, whereas I can't get it to get reception on a single level building, with plaster walls, 15 metres away from the main device. Still a work in progress to see why this is happening. The main device has pretty good connectivity around the home anyway.
I had a serious signal coverage issue in my house after the new NBN connection point has been installed on one end corner of the house. I’ve tried several options (number of WiFi extenders), but didn’t work, until I found this Netgear Orbi Mesh system. It perfectly resolved our problem! Now, we can receive strong signal from every corner of our house! Very happy with it!
Orbi setup was a little confusing but eventually everything fell into place and the result is fantastic. We replaced an Apple Airport system and the Orbi performs perfectly with far superior coverage and better speed. Highly recommend!
Extremely easy setup with the app. I have a high-end router and powerline / extender setup and it was halfing my speed towards the end of the house. The price definitely was worth it on this one. I get full speeds on my NBN even at the very end of my house.
