Great wireless coverage but one drawback.

Replaced three access points and have strong wireless signal throughout even with some stone walls and concrete floors. Setup was easy and it is compatible with the existing Sonos system. Unfortunately, the option to connect the router and satellite with LAN cable is not possible - the Orbi is purely wireless. If you have ethernet cabling already in place - wired backhaul is possible at this time.

Get it

Moved to a really big house and my 10 yr old dlink couldn't cover it. Originally had went into the store with this in mind after researching it online. I was talked in to one on sale for 280 bucks, didn't work. Brought that back and was again talked into now the best, most expensive link sys router, didn't work. Brought that back and finally got this orbi one. 5000 sq foot home and full signal everywhere in the house. Won't even have to purchase any additional satellites which I was sure I was going to get. Don't waste your time on anything else. Get this system, you won't regret spending a little more.

not worth the money

I live in about 2000 square foot home and currently have apple AirPort Extreme it was working very well the only small issue I had in one of the bedrooms where my son sleeps he was complaining sometimes his Wi-Fi gets disconnected after doing a good amount of search I bought this device brought it home set it up at first I only connected one hub and put it exactly same spot where the apple one was always sitting I left both devices connected apple one and this one went on that bedroom outside backyard and around the home and I compared the Wi-Fi signal side by side and it was almost identical to the Apple One Then I go ahead and connected the other hub yes it boosted up the signal buy one bar on the backyard and solve the problem on that room but if you ask me if it is worthed to spend over six hundred dollars just for an extra one bar absolutely not do yourself a favor and keep the 600 in your account you will need them for something else

Strong signal, Great coverage, Reliable

Replaced single Linksys router on main level with Orbi router in basement next to cable modem. The Orbi satellite placed on main level. Coverage on upper level stronger and speeds faster in wood stud/drywall house. Each unit has 4 port Ethernet connections available. Set-up was pretty easy. I recommend that you go with the default SSID and network password for initial setup, then change the Orbi SSID and network password to your OLD values so that you don't have to redo the setup on all your devices . Use the Orbi App (I used Android version) for initial setup. Download the Netgear Genie App for fine tuning and control. For most configuration options, use the browser interface. After about a month, the product is reliable. Highly recommended.

Works better than expected

I'll keep it simple. If you have areas in your home that have dead spots, this is worth the investment. I have wasted money on expensive single point routers that still didn't cover my second floor. Where it did speeds were 15 or 20 Mbs. I have a Gig connection. Obviously not what I had hoped for. With the Orbi speeds on the 2nd floor were over 300Mbs. Setup was fast and easy. Worth every penny.

I can notice an improvement

It took a little bit of tech support with Shaw but after that it's been working well. The signal strength in the house appears to be very strong and loading pages on my phone and laptop seem much quicker.

Nothing else works quite like Orbi!

Great product - coverage around the house is like nothing we've had before.

Wow!

Just wow! Rogers built-in router: two bars reception and between 25-40 Mbps. Orbi: all five bars reception and 130 Mbps.

Performs as promised

I was very skeptical about spending this much for a router, but the Orbi really does deliver significantly better performance than my previous system (linksys 4300 router and multiple extenders). It was the easiest router I've ever set up and provides superior speeds in every room in my 4,000 sqft house while eliminating dead spots. Also, without the need for extenders, there is no longer the hassle of having to switch wifi sources when moving around the house.

Great product

I purchased Netgear Orbi set about a month ago. I was having difficulties in getting wifi signal in the font of my house with the ISP provided modem/router combo box. I tried few wifi extenders but they were all useless. Once I read about mesh network routers and very high praise about Orbi system. Luckily it is available in Canada so I picked it up from Bestbuy. The setup was very easy. I setup router on the main floor and satellite upstairs in the middle. It is an amazing product. Now I have signal everywhere in my house with one network ID. Download speed is equally strong upstairs. There is no degradation. It is bit expensive but still well worth your money. Highly recommended.

NETGEAR Orbi Wireless AC3000 Tri-Band Gigabit Wi-Fi System

I love my Orbi's!! I live in a 1965 bungalow with plaster and steel mesh. The issue is that the signal strength on 5g and 2g at the other end of the house is weak. An example, in my living room (close to the router) I get approx. 280g download speed. At the other end of the house I get 10-15g download speed. Before the Orbi, I tried the Asus repeater and Tp pro power line adaptors, and unfortunately had to return theses products as they only improved the signal slightly. The Orbi is simply amazing! My download speed is constant at approx. 240g in the basement and at the other side of my house. I absolutely love my Orbi!!

Excellent Router

"Wow" is the best word I can think of to describe this router. Yes, it is an expensive solution but boy does it work. Took less than 15 minutes to get the main router and satellite set up and working. Signal throughout my house and yard is exceptional. We have lots of concrete (floors and walls) and water (pool). About a 2,000sqft house + 3,000sqft yard and signal is everywhere. Highly recommend.

Best Wi-Fi!!

I have tried everything to get some stable, fast wi-fi and it has been a nightmare! Bought the Linksys EA9500 thinking it had to fix it and still had nothing but problems and unstable, dropping connection. Decided to give this a shot and had it setup in 10 mins and WOW!! I cannot believe I now have stable, fast, non-dropping wi-fi all over my house! Finally Wi-fi that works!
