Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn’t quite meet my expectations Bought the product due to internet provider having a weak router. I figured a mesh system would operate better. Purchased when it was $100 off. Overall it is better than the internet providers router but it doesn’t perform as well as I would like for $800. The Orbi app shows I am getting my speeds from the modem but then the WiFi speed is much slower. On top of that, I get buffering sometimes when only 1 device is streaming (and it’s right next to the router). Incredibly disappointing. I’ve tried other products and they don’t work quite as well. Still a little disappointing for spending $800 on a WiFi system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved my Wi-Fi issues! I previously had a system from another manufacturer installed in my business. The system worked great for many years but recently decided enough was enough and would constantly go down. I heard about the Orbi system through a fellow business owner and decided to purchase one for myself. I am beyond pleased to say it has solved all of our Wi-Fi issues and our network is running better than ever! This is crucial for my business where we have ~100 devices connected to the network at any time. The system has worked flawlessly so far and the app is extremely user-friendly. Thank you Netgear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mesh System Great mesh system so far. Doubled my download speed. Speed is now 360 Mbits down on Spectrum. Have all of my devices hooked up and running. Took lots of trial and error. Setting up this system is not for a novice! But once up and running, it is a great system. Had to set the wireless power level to 25% to get all of the devices solidly connecting. It is a very powerful system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coverage and Speed Included I updated my mesh router configuration with Orbi, and couldn't be more pleased. Honestly, it was a bit of work to get my 80 odd devices connected, but in the end well worth it. No longer am I getting drops, and speed and coverage are much better than my previous setup. This router also takes me back to the days that you could actually modify network settings that many consumer focused offerings don't allow. Well worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ORBI MESH WI-FI SYSTEM We lived in this house for 16 years that is cursed with Wi-fi and cell phone service. We purchased an ORBI system that worked great lasting many years. I then purchased a Decco system that are budget friendly and worked good but only lasted 23 months. I now replaced the Decco’s with the ORBI system that again work flawlessly with great speeds. I will only buy Netgear products in the future, I am very pleased with the performance and longevity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Netgear OrbI is the best and last wifi mesh system you’ll ever need to buy! I’ve tried several wifi mesh systems over the last year and OrbI is superior by far. The random signal dropping, loss of speed, and lack of multiple iot device are non existent with orbI. I highly recommend this setup for any home whom need fast reliable and secure wifi. Easy to setup and protected right out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spot on Orbi Satellite After a few hiccups with setup due to firmware updates, the customer service personnel from Netgear was able to help me resolve my issues and get going. Once all of the conneciton with the router was resolved its been working wonderfully. I can see all of my device connected to both the router and satellite and have full control of the access with no dropped device connection like my previous wifi router. The use of the Orbi Satellite has made connecting both wireless and wired devices essentially a breeze. I highly recommend the Orbi Mesh system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After Firmware Update, Smooth Sailling Installation of the device wasn't as simple as I would've liked. The firmware on my satellite product was last updated in 2020 which required a hardline connection to update the device's firmware and a call to customer service. Why 5 stars? Because my experience with customer service was pain-free and efficient. My internet speeds are in line with my expectations and much faster than my previous router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate performance This system lives up to the hype. Setting up the system was difficult and I believe it was because I followed instructions to replace router but plugged in 2 devices to ethernet ports on new Orbi router before starting app setup. Finally unplugged all devices and reset Orbi and finally got it up and running. OMG it is amazing. Great coverage everywhere... in house, near pool, farthest part of yard and still solid connection. Highly reccomend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Coverage and roaming I am pleased with the Orbi AX6000 as it provides good coverage for my 3,250 Sq.Ft. home which is a 2 story with a basement. The system was easy to setup and get running. iPhones and iPads roam and change devices quickly for best coverage (as they should on a Mesh system). I have ring cameras on the outside of the house so I needed extra coverage and this system is providing it. My Roku TVs and streaming sticks connect to the closest RBR850 or satellite RBS850. The router is connected to a 1 Gig fiber internet connection and getting all of it. The Orbi system replaced an Amplifi HD Mesh system that failed just short of 3 years. Orbi is superior.

I bought the Orbi AX6000 (RBR850) with two satellites, and an extra RBR750 satellite for exterior workshed. Everything connected seamlessly and I get 1 gig throughout my network, including my workshed. Completely setup hardware, network and security in less than 2 hours, if I did not have workshed it would have been about 45 minutes. I also highly recommend the Netgear Armor protection, it protects all of your devices on your network from all forms of threats. Highly recommend this system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only downside is the cost The Orbi WiFi 6 system has been amazing! My previous system started dropping the connection at least daily which was extremely frustrating. With kids doing schools at home, lots of smart home devices and multiple video streams from Netflix, Hulu, Disney , etc, I think it was just too much for the old system. Since setting up the Orbi WiFi 6 system the connection hasn’t dropped even 1 time. We have our max service speeds everywhere in the home. The Orbi WiFi 6 system was easy to set up without any problems or difficulties. Really, the only downside to this system is the cost. $699 is a tough price to pay for a router or even a mesh system with 1 satellite. If the price were more reasonable I’d easily give it 5 stars because the product itself has been excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good performance but issues with some devices Replaced existing Netgear router and extender, each had 5G and 2G SSIDs, some IOT devices were programmed to use the extender because of range issues and they would only work on 2G. Under the old router and extender this was not an issue because setup for those devices could choose the wireless network they saw, but with new ORBI this was not possible because there is now a single SSID for the router and satellite and apparently the satellite would only present as a 5G signal so the IOT devices that were out of range from the router could not be installed on the new system. It took a long call to technical support to get this resolved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, So good Had a little trouble setting up. Got thru it though. Better speed and better overall coverage inside my house over my older r7000 nighthawk. My house is only a 1400 sqf ranch with a poured concrete basement. Three bedroom. Dosen't reach as far outside as I expected. 40 ft perimeter around the house is reachable, then the signal deminishes fast. Hence the 4 stars ( 3 1/2 ). Not much further than the nighthawk. I wanted to use the orbi to control smart lighting outside. $600.00 for this system is way too much. Maybe I should have spent $200.00 more and got a three pack system. Then again, way too much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade from older Wifi 5 system I upgraded to the WIFI 6 model with Meshing from the older Asus GT-5300 wifi 5 system. Coverage was spotty in a larger house and even with extenders we'd have drop outs. The newer Orbi wifi 6 system with mesh and satellites has squashed our dead spots and improved the response of our smart home devices. The only reason I didnt give the unit 5 stars was because for the price you should receive all of the features. The system we retired had security features enabled for free for life. Netgear wants to upcharge you on a subscription service for advance protection and family filters.

Random packet losses and disconnections from the wifi (it happens to with all devices connected like phone, computer, playstation, TV and internet radio). You'd be in a video call, listening to music or playing a game and the wifi connection would just drop (it doesn't come from the modem or the internet provider, all cables connections never drop). Fun fact, this review is submitted via a direct cable connection, the wifi dropped twice meanwhile...

If I were you - I'd keep shopping or get a less expensive model. SKIP the Bit Defender security add on - it's TERRIBLE! It was flagging tons of webpages as security risks to the point where I eventually had to go in an disable that "feature" so I could actually get stuff done. I had Norton previously and will likely be going back to that package as Bit Defender stinks. It's so intrusive and there's not really any easy way to tell it to "quit blocking everything".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A neat solution for a messy problem The Netgear Orbi brought order and solid performance to my internet system. My old “pseudo mesh” system was an Xfinity Modem-router at the farthest end of my 1 story house connected to an Apple Extreme used as an Ethernet switch and access point which itself was wired via Ethernet cable to another Ethernet switch. Old 100 foot Cat 5 cables were threaded up into the attic crawl space and connected to first and second generation Apple Express boxes setup as access points. Excess cable was coiled and left exposed. Best speed was 20-35 Mbps. It was a mess. When I installed the Orbi, all the old Apple access points and cables were removed and replaced with one central router (next to the Xfinity modem) and one Satellitef in the center of the house. Now, I routinely get 300-500 Mbps speeds throughout the house. As an added bonus, I switched the Xfinity modem-router to bridge mode and was able to change my DNS addresses to a more preferable service. I am very happy with the Orbi.

I was concerned because of Xfinity X1 router,but the setup was easy (although a bit slow to add each satellite). I encountered a brief hiccup when renaming my wifi , but the issue seemingly resolved itself. Speed tests from different areas within the house and in the detached garage were fantastic! I'm actually getting 500+ Mbps on old mobile devices and ~974 Mbps via a switch connected to one of the Orbi's 4 Ethernet ports.

On my previous Orbi I had started to notice internet instability on Zoom calls; once this thing was up, that went away. Is it worth $700? Tough to say with the other cheaper options out there. However I prefer to stick with a proven solution and with all the devices in our home, we need the capabilities of tri-band. Definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good features, great idea, minor weak point I have an office in an adjacent but separate building from my house and the Orbi router/satellite combination fixes virtually all of my troubles (yes, I declined the cable company's offer to give me two modems at DOUBLE the price. My only issue is that the Orbi router doesn't always get the device name and type correct. No problem, just manually fix in in either the web interface to the router, or in the app on your phone, right? WRONG! The update can be made either way, but it won't stay that way. I opened a support case with Netgear, various reps walked me through stuff with the senior rep saying he'd never seen this before. Eventually Netgear replaced the router, but the replacement did the same thing! As an example, the attached screen clip shows how Orbi thinks a Ring Video Doorbell (a quite common and modern device) is a "network generic" device rather than a doorbell (which IS one of the choices when you try to change it). I finally gave up and accepted reality. Having worked in IT for over 15 years, I can completely understand how INITIALLY the Orbi router might read a device wrong, but once you tell the router that the device is a doorbell, how on earth does it not stay that way? Hopefully a future firmware upgrade will resolve this issue though it's hard to believe it hasn't come up in testing (or customer feedback) yet. Otherwise, I love this mesh system!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from buy Pro version I have been buying and using the Pro version, decided to try the WiFi6, never again. Forces you to use the app, can not go direct using browser, took about 18 hours with help of support to "sort of make it work", slower than Pro version and not friendly or worth the grief. Pro version sets up in less than 5 min using the browser. If others think it is great, they have not used the Pro version. I have deployed pro to many houses (WFH). The other thing, this unit wants you to sign up for a subscription. Do your self a favor, really compare this to the Pro, you will be happy you did. The Pro version is fantastic.

I was able to get everything in the house hooked up in seconds and there were no problems. The speed is amazing. I conference live via video daily and it is imperative that I have a strong and reliable signal. The signal has been great for the outdoor areas as well, which was one of our concerns as it is farther from the house and we have had no problems.

Then I have a detached shop that's another 30 feet beyond that. I couldn't be happier with the fact the satellites extend not only the router but each other so I am able to run them in a direct line and have solid internet in my shop to hook my security camera's up to. Connection is solid, full bars throughout my property (one of the external cameras is another 30' away from the satellite), and one network name and password for all. Truly worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good but Some Hiccups I bought the Netgear Orbi once it went on discount which I’d highly recommend. I went with the Wi-Fi 6 vs the 6E and the speeds have held up very well. Outside of not being future proofed, this seems to be the sweet spot. I did have issue with the software as I was installing and found that the only fix was to factory reset. This was the biggest downside, however after I rebooted it and made sure the ssid was the same everything reconnected without any issue. If it wasn’t for this the entire process would’ve been pretty painless. As Far as speeds I have a decent size house, and got 2 satellites but it feels like overkill. Everything is being able to be reached with 2. The back channel connection really shines and I have zero loss of speed throughout the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrible Quality and Customer Service The network jacks on the back of these Orbi units are made out with cheap brittle plastic and the gold tines are poorly supported. If your network cable hangs down out of one of these jacks it will fail over time. My WAN port failed in less than one year and no support from Netgear on an $1100 purchase. Netgear wants you to purchase a limited time warranty but even then the customer service is terrible. I have routers from 1996 that still have all network ports working even after multiple connections. Buyer be ware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coverage above and beyond expectations I purchased my system with hopes to cover my home, barns and workshop all with wifi from one system. We recently were able to switch to high speed internet. The set up of the system was extremely easy, my only question was around how far away I could place the satellites from the router, after research I found the satellites will blink a different color when out of range from the router. As I mentioned I am trying to cover a 3500sqft home, two barns and a workshop, one barn is over 100 feet away from the house as is the workshop. I found the ORBI app very helpful when setting up the satellites, especially the Network Map page. This page shows a diagram of how the satellites are connected, either both to the router or one extended from the other satellite. My first setup showed both satellites connected to the router, the coverage in the house was excellent as was the coverage in my closet barn. The coverage in the workshop and second barn was weak.. I managed to rearrange my satellites to have one satellite hooked up the the router and the second satellite was extended from the first satellite, this provided me excellent coverage everywhere. The router also comes with security software you can try for free, the software found a piece of malware on my wife’s computer which I was able to remove. Also my connection speed is faster than the plan I subscribed to.. all in all I am very happy with my purchase and recommend this system to anyone trying to coverage a large area with wifi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great router, Easy setup Love the coverage, speed and easy setup. I had originally purchased two Amplifi Alien routers for my home. Looked great but no setup instructions and setup on the mesh router was not working. I am not technically savvy, and just need something easy to set up that gives great coverage…found that in the Orbi. Step by step installation instructions worked great and my coverage is excellent and so is my speed. So hard to decipher all the reviews on line with the pros and cons but I would highly recommend this system to anyone who needs a great system and easy setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive My fibre point terminates in a kitchen cupboard! As you can imagine getting wifi signal throughout the apartment has proved difficult. I’ve tried powerline adapters, wifi extenders and even mesh networks with limited success in getting wifi to the end room. I wasn’t sure if Orbi Triband Wifi 6 would perform but wow.... just the base router and one extender was enough for the whole place with excellent signal strength and speed throughout. As more wifi 6 devices become available in the future, I only imagine my internal speeds will also improve. Although I lost some functionality from my previous router I was happy to find the web interface had a lot more functions that I could adjust that were not available on the app. It was easy to setup, its fast and powerful. Finally my network is a lot more stable with no drop offs anymore! Thank you!!!

The packaging of the devices was nicely laid out, the setup was incredibly easy to navigate and complete. The WiFi coverage for the mesh system has been a solid performer. Putting it to the test: I’m streaming 4K videos from multiple sources, three Xbox gaming systems at the same time and a PlayStation streaming a game, two gaming PCs and 15 smart home devices. I have not received any drops in performance or connectivity. The verdict: I had many products in the past and all I pushed and reached their limitations. The whole home mesh system has been my favorite so far, I have recommended this product to my coworkers and they all agreed, Netgear has out done themselves. Thank you to Netgear for providing top quality products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great but missing some features. Setup is easy and the router is fast and reliable. The Firmware/Software is missing some important features. Every Netgear router I have used prior to the Orbi had powerful QOS features, they are missing on the Orbi. The missing QOS is unfortunate and disappointing for a router at this price point. Also, missing are the more data rich network monitoring features. Although basic monitoring is available, like the QOS, it is too basic for a router at this price point. Hopefully, these will be added with future firmware updates. This would be a 5-star router with the missing features added.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST ROUTER EVER I was struggling with my internet provider’s modem/router combo. It couldn’t provide a stable connection with my devices and couldn’t provide a decent range. My smart home devices kept disconnecting and I was fed up. I found out I could use my own router and so I narrowed it down to this router or the new amplifi alien router. All the reviews said nothing compares to this mesh systems consistent speed and range. I went for it and I must say best router I have ever used. Setup was so simple via the orbi app. Literally took 5 minutes and the amount of range and speed surpassed my internet provider’s router and 2 extenders. It handles all 20 of my devices with ease. Not one network hiccup. I love this mesh system. Netgear really out did themselves with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Investing in the Future This has been a fantastic upgrade from my 3 year old Orbi system. It’s improvement is in the high speed feeds have shorter wait times when playing even in my home has multiple streams going at the same time. It been noticeable especially with our two Xboxes online. Before the WiFi 6 upgrade with the Orbi, I would have to rely on Ethernet connected to a satellite. Now with this 2 part system, I can replace and simplify my setup to just the router and one satellite. Before I would use a router and 2 satellites to accomplish the same. It’s worth the price if you want a real upgrade because you need something like this. I am impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flexible and Powerful The coverage in this mesh network is great, and I love that each satellite has four ports for hard-line connections. The forward-thinking inclusion of a 2.5 GB WAN port will give this system a lasting value in our home. The Orbi app makes setup easy, but for those more tech savvy folx, the browser interface makes more advanced options available.The built-in speed test and traffic meter add functionality I previously needed multiple apps to track. I even integrated my older Apple network hardware to keep Airplay capacity. I believe this system will stay with us through many device upgrades for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smokes the Competition I was loyal to another brand for well over 20 years. I tried their mesh system and it kept dropping offline. I spent over 10 hours a week on the phone with their tech support trying to get a warranty replacement and they refused. I bought this Orbi system to replace it and set it up the exact same way with nodes in the exact same places. It has NEVER dropped off line and I’m getting even faster speeds. I should’ve switched to NetGear a long time ago! The app is easy to manage my system. Speeds are impressive. It just plain works and it smokes the system I replaced from a competitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy setup, fastest Wi-Fi I bought the 3 pack with a 10% off coupon. I’d been fidgeting with Wi-Fi and previously running 3 airport extremes via a wired Ethernet backhaul on bridge mode (like an old mesh network). I was skeptical this would do much better but it has. The ping rates are less than 15 now, everything is blazing fast and the coverage is so much better. Now I don’t have the random device not working. 4K never glitches. The app is pretty darn simple. It’s a great setup and forget about it type of thing. Speeds are consistently 7-800mbs about 5-10 feet away with a Wi-Fi 6 device. 4-500 about 15-20 feet away. And 200 about 40 feet away from any given node. I still use a wired backhaul.

I’ve had Orbi’s now for about a year and I noticed that my Internet has improved. The reason why I did not give Orbi a five out of five is because I’ve noticed a lot of downtime with the Orby’s always recycling. I did have to call tech-support to figure out why this is happening and they were able to fix one of the issues. I still notice the issue but it’s not as bad as it was before. All in all I give Orbi’s a 4 to 5 I still think it’s a good product and my Internet is better than it was before. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Everywhere!! Switched from AirPort Extreme as it was reaching it’s end of life. Starting Day 1 I realized I was not using full potential of my gigabit connection. I have tried replacing Airport quite few times in the past with various top rated routers but ended returning them; although being brand new they couldn’t match up to my aging router. However AX6000 was a game changer. It not only pushed my WiFi coverage to longer range but also blazing speed everywhere and not just around the router. I have lot of devices that cannot use 5 GHz and they suffered in the past due to port network but with the additional satellites and smart allocation of applicable bandwidth everything works pretty smooth. Highly recommend if you looking for a complete home WiFi network and have lot of smart devices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Awesome, has some room to grow The benefits of AX WiFi are pretty clear right away, it’s very impressive. I’ve got a Ring Camera outside that has to be about 60 feet from the main Orbi Node, with MANY walls and a garage door in between, and it works perfectly with quick response to Live View. I went from 3 Velop Nodes to the new AX Orbi, with two Nodes, and the Two Orbis cover the same ground (4800 SQ Feet, three floors). The Active Roaming definitely works great too, that was a feature I’m glad to see work legitimately. The only bad is lack of customization. The app is very limited, anyone who really wants to mess with stuff has to use the browser version. I wish you could manually assign devices to a specific Orbi Node, I really want to see QoS, and it would be really cool to see the backhaul strength in the app. Overall though I’m very happy with the system. I upgraded from a Surfboard 3.0 with Gen 1 Velop (3 Pack) to the Netgear CM1000 Modem with AX Orbi (2 Pack). I noticed better Ping, slightly better Upload speeds (with Spectrum), but was really surprised to see higher Decibel Strength (signal strength) further away and even through walls vs anything I had before. 30 Feet Away and through 1 Wall Orbi has about -40 for me, where Velop in the same circumstance had around -60. Both are “good,” but -40 is much stronger. Very cool system!

The Orbi 6000 was the solution, after reading about and reviewing the different mesh systems we finally pulled the trigger a few weeks ago on an Orbi 6000 system. It did not disappoint, from multiple gaming systems, Tv’s, Smart Home devices, sound systems , etc- it keeps things moving at blazing speeds- definitely worth the money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, easy setup I updated from an earlier version of Orbi and this verison works great. Connecting at much higher speeds and with better coverage. My suggestion is to get the system with 2 satilites for most houses that are 2 stories for better coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the price My first look at this gave me sticker shock. But my router was not doing the job: dead spots, slow days, even cutting out during meetings. Gave in and bought the orbi system to try it and went from constant frustration with my old system to an easy installation and reliable fast internet. Very happy I made the switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Setup and features are a bit awkward. It took 2 calls into tech support to get my Orbi up and working properly. Now that it’s up and running it works great. However, most smart TV’s and legacy devices don’t like 5GHz bandwidth, they like 2.4GHz. Some legacy products acquired the 2.4GHz signal but others acquired the 5GHz. Netgears solution for you is to move the satellite or router further from the device so that it acquires the 2.4GHz signal. The orbi is great looking device, but do I really want to see it out like a piece of furniture. Not really. It would be so much easier if you bring back the ability to split and name the dual channels like in early versions of the Orbi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Orbi AX6000 Works Great Works great and purchased from best buy due to immediate availability instead of buying from Netgear directly. Other reviews about upload speeds are spot on. Via wifi download speed is fast. I have a 500 plan so I get close to that however on upload I rarely see anything above 60 mb. Now if I hardline, is a whole different story, as I get full speed as from my ISP provider and sometimes even around 630-650 up/down. The app was a breeze to use. I would highly recommend however, that you set up the router and the satellites in the same room , next to each other first, to make the set up quick and painless (it will find the satellites quick, after that feel free to find the best zones in your house and set up satellite to best provide coverage.

I had decided to pay the extra for the Orbi and I’m getting much faster speeds and a consistent connection for my wifi. All the other tests and comparisons are true. You will get better coverage and better speeds with the Orbi. If you can justify the price, purchase these and you won’t be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade from my Orbi RBK50 Works as well as my previous Orbi WiFi but with more speed and better WiFi capabilities. I also have a couple of devices that use the Ethernet ports which work great as well. It is especially nice being able to connect devices via an Ethernet port on the satellite. The main reasons I upgraded from my previous Orbi system was because I have some newer devices that can take advantage of the newer WiFi technologies this model provides and I was beginning to feel unsure about how up to date the security would remain for my older system (it did receive a recent firmware update so it does not seem forgotten). I did not like that I had to setup my system with an app instead of just plugging a device into a port and configuring via a web interface. After using the app for setup I was able to then use the web app for configuration like my previous system. Also I had to disable the Armor ability. It was causing a couple of my devices to drop connections. After disabling Armor everything worked great. I would recommend this system.

To my surprise I really love this product. Very easy to setup. I was concerned because I have zero networking skills, however, it was simple and quick to setup. Also since the install no dead spots. Increased performance. I reset my router and I loved that the satellite kicked in and none of my devices lost connectivity. Having this mesh system encouraged me to put other devices on the network that I had not previously done because I no it can handle it. Capable of having up to 100 clients on the network.

However, the Orbi router line has gotten SO pricey, I figured I'd give these 'renewed' products a try. They arrived in like-new condition, and since I'm experienced in setting up and maintaining an Orbi router, these were very easy to get online. I've noticed much quicker responses in some instances, which is why I bought them, and overall they are a speed improvement on the RBS20. I have gig service, and these have peaked at 940ish Mbps up/down in speed tests. I'm hoping for a little more performance, so I'll keep running the tests and tweaking settings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serious Upgrade I pay for a gigabit connection at my home and wasn’t getting at all what I was paying for with my old Linksys Velop AC2200 with 3 nodes. My coverage was good, as I have a 2600 sq ft home, but it just didn’t allow the right throughput. Now I only have these two Orbi’s and it is way faster than the 3 Velop nodes. I was barley getting ~150Mbps down on a good day, now I am getting actuals of 650~800 down amd up depending on where I am in the home. Outside of the house I can get between 250~500Mbps down/up. So overall its a drastic improvement over what I had before and even with just 2 nodes. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love... love! Just an amazing package all together, first of all I have tried many other routers and my walls being made out of brick (old house in Fl) it is not easy to get the signal to reach far and wide; this things covers my whole street basically xD I am not sure if this is a feature in many/all other routers; but, but everything connecting automatically one you name your network and set the password to the previously used ones has made me a very very happy person! Great routers! I do not use anything over gigabit, but this thing maxes out at higher than my ISP's advertised 500mbps! My only grips is, I would like the security to be free, as this package comes with a hefty price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Orbi 853/ Excellent coverage and speeds Coming from an older RBK50 with 4 satellites with too many connected devices was time to upgrade. Tried a couple of top competitors and they were a no go for my house with many rooms and 3600 sq ft. Ended up back with the Orbi. The 853 connected and picked up all my devices with no issues, wall to wall coverage and getting minimum 60% of my speed plan wifi anywhere in the house, plus outside perimeter. More money, yes but it gets the job done. As many comments point out, one thing is they should include is parental connection controls standard rather than an extra cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staying connected What a difference the Netgear Orbi made to my network. I have much better connectivity throughout the house. My speed to the Wan has improved across all wireless devices. This system is definitely a better solution for whole house coverage. I’ve been using Netgear routers for years and this is by far the best Wi-Fi solution today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great router, app needs work I recently ordered a new Orbi. I went to set it up, and the app wouldn’t configure the settings properly even after trying multiple times. I ended up using the web portal, which fixed it, but left the original network that came with the router visible. I had to reboot everything twice for that network name to go away, and then finally everything was working. The app works okay now, but it’s still pretty slow and takes multiple tries to get something to go through. Other than that, the Orbi is a great and fast router that takes advantage of your internet speeds to give you a fast experience online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mesh System I was looking to upgrade from my Google WiFi mesh system to something that supported WiFi 6 which provided both excellent coverage and fast speeds. Since I have >1Gbps speed from my ISP, I wanted to leverage WiFi on more devices since the wireless connection would then be faster than the gigabit Ethernet ports on many wired devices. I found that this model hit the mark. I’ve almost doubled devices running in the network and I’ve seen faster throughout and no network congestion. I highly recommend this specific model as it gives you a strong backhaul to handle all of your streaming and gaming devises simultaneously.

We had the nighthawk axe1100 and while it was good it still lacked the QOS feature and the total coverage that’s needed for our home. The Orbi router has a easy and quick setup, fast speed via the Wi-Fi 6 standard so that my gigbit service from my ISP can now be used to it’s fullest potential. Coverage is also not an issue to the satellite that can be place anywhere in the home. Netgear’s ARMOURY does work well securing my home network. So overall I would and do recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needs Refining I guess I had expected far more for the price than what I actually got. I have a single story house from 1940. The walls are plaster with either lathe or (in spots) plaster over chicken wire. A normal gaming router does a fair job, but between the tvs and smart bulbs, plugs, phones, etc. (there are around 52 items) and the walls, the signal does get muddled. So I figured mesh would be the way to go. I was not happy with the price, but the router seemed like it would be future proofed. Like other reviewers stated, set-up was not a breeze, I had major issues with the app and an iPhone 12pro max. I finally switched to an iPad and was able to connect the router, then the satellites. Of course it then had to update. I was then able to connect all of the smart devices. I thought everything was fine, nope.. devices would lose signal go off line and then come back on. Cameras were lagging. I gave it a couple days to try and settle down. It didn’t.. so I boxed it all up (which by the way the router and satellites are kind of bulky and stand out in any decor and not in a good way. ) and returned. I am not going to bash this product, but is simply didn’t work for me, and certainly not for the expensive price tag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawed Software Hampers Operation Be aware that Netgear software has omitted the capability to turn off the 2.4 and/or 5GHz radios in this unit thus making installation for some devices difficult or impossible. Clearly the people that design this unit do not actually use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Upgrade I went from a NightHawk to an Orbi ax4200 and finally the Orbi ax6000 (which can handle 100 devices. Our house has a LOT of smart-home tech. We have a Blink camera system, Nest thermostat, dozens of Alexa devices, dozens of smart lights, some wifi switch outlets, wifi-enabled garage doors, multiple gaming consoles, multiple smart TVs, VOIP phones, all of our household smart phones, smart watches, laptops, and tablets... the number of devices adds up quickly and we got to the point where we were overloading the ax4200 (which can handle 40 devices). It should be more than sufficient for most households, but we just have SO MANY devices. I see there is also an ax11000 that can handle over 200 devices! If we wind up with that many devices, I guess that will be my next upgrade. The Netgear Orbi mesh system is great for integrating my vast-but-growing smart home network. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid system I upgraded my modem as I was having intermittent drops in speed, turns out my old ubiquiti UniFi system wasn’t able to connect with the new modem so it left me looking for a new wifi system. After a few hours of research, the Orbi was consistently near the top of wifi 6 mesh networks. The set up took a little bit longer than I was expecting but it’s possible i was just rushing through. Now that it’s up and running it’s great. I purchased the 2 pack and was a little nervous about the coverage but so far it’s been wonderful. I have a 3k sqft house with no dead spots so far. I have a few outdoor wireless cameras and it seems to reach those devices with no problem. I would recommend this product for sure!

I have been looking at the Orbi Whole Home Mesh system for some time but was reluctant to purchase due to price. I finally took the leap and can honestly say it is worth every penny! Our home is a bit over 2,500 square feet and with the router and one satellite we have strong WiFi throughout, as well as outside. We have experienced no buffering and I am so happy with this product. Highly recommend!

So I moved up to an Orbi WiFi 6. Step son computer wired in pulling 960 mbps and my iPad pulling over 300 mbps. Finally!! Getting what I pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Orbi Changed Everything Like most households without thinking about it we were adding more and more wireless devices. I noticed when ti was taking forever for Plex on my 4 Rokus to load, I was unable to connect to my security cameras, when I VPNed into work the connection was painfully slow. I didd a speed test from my laptop and although I have FIOS GE service I was at just barely 100M up and 100M down. It was a choice, wire the house for Ethernet or go to WiFI 6, WiFi 6 was much cheaper and easier. From the time I unboxed Orbi it took about 15 minutes to be up and running and all my devices operating on Orbi. I ran a speed test from my laptop again, over 600Mb up and 600Mb down. I even tried it sitting on the patio with the same results. Security cameras are live again, we no longer get the spinning wheel of death on the Rokus and when VPNed in I get over 300Mb up and down. Best investment ever.

Set up was easy with the app just don’t have more than one device trying to use it during setup. System has delivered highest speeds we have seen from our gigabit isp. Coverage extends through whole house and reaches to external garage. Have moved over to streaming tv services and getting more out of our 4K tv’s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whole property goodness. I bought this to hook up in my new house I recently purchased. My goal was to update the house to a smart house so needed WiFi that could handle all the devices. In addition, it’s an acre lot with a barn/shed and a dock on the lake so I wanted a satellite in both of those locations to cover the whole property in wifi. I am fortunate enough to have gigabit internet and this system blanket ma the whole property with great speeds and connections. We have poor cell signal and the WiFi calling work great. Definitely recommend if you have the money for this kind of investment. Hopefully this stays operating strong and I’m set for the foreseeable future and won’t need to upgrade the system. The connection process is a breeze using the app, but it did take a while to discover the modem had internet. Other than that if you’ve read this far you are seriously interested and should pull the trigger.

I was also having low service levels in select areas of the house. After installing the Orbi mesh system and setting up just over 30 WiFi devices (5 tv’s, switches,plugs,Alexa,etc) my internet connection frustration fell from 100 to zero. I have never had this feeling of freedom knowing that anywhere within my home I’m connected to WiFi. My download speeds went from low 40’s back up to near 500, which is what I pay for with my internet provider. Awesome product ?? ?? ?? ?? ??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not ready for prime time NG Orbi 6, AX series products are not quite ready for prime time as there are two glaring problems compared to other products. I just purchased this at B.Buy and I’m very dissatisfied and will be looking to return it. Key reasons this system fails to perform; 1) Quality of Service is totally lacking. Netgear considers the new AX series to provide “auto sensing QOS“ as it automatically prioritizes high bandwidth traffic. For example when someone starts streaming Netflix or Online gaming, the Orbi prioritizes that devices traffic, but it does so at the expense of all other devices. So say you’re working from home on a video call and your child fires up the Xbox....well you can expect that your work call is over. Netgear needs to build into these devices a more sophisticated and user adjustable QOS process allowing users to give select devices priority over others. Short sited of NG to not realize that anyone investing in a sophisticated mesh system is trying to improve bandwidth for multiple simultaneous users. 2) Family/Children monitoring. Mesh systems at the entry level and even lower level Orbi products allow you to put a “virtual fence” around the various devices your children use and allow the parent/admin to set a schedule for when those devices can be online and when they cannot. The AX series Orbi 6 RBR850 that I purchased does not have this functionality. The only option is to manually disable/pause each devices connection. 3) Bandwidth consumption, while this unit does allow the user to monitor bandwidth usage, it is only for the aggregate of the whole network and does not monitor traffic device by device. I think it’s critically important to be able to get diagnostics that tell me which devices on my network are consuming the most bandwidth each week/month and this unit does not allow for that. Hoping this helps others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Satisfied The Orbi AX6000 is outstanding. Whole house coverage with little to no loss of speed. Streaming multiple TVs with no issues improving the video output on all 5 sets. Install was a breeze. Slight stumble on setting up the security part of the package but once corrected seems to work fine with mobile security as well as a secure VPN. Very happy with its performance. Pricey but worth it to just set it up and be done with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Orbi RBR850 I initially had troubles getting my satellite to work. Netgear sent me a new one that works and I have great full house coverage now. The Orbi app is a bit flaky and it indicates my router has the latest firmware but a google search indicates I don’t. Hopefully that resolves itself over time. Other than that, I am very happy with my 1gig/1gig full house WiFi speed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crapping out at 1.5 years down the road They worked good - although not nearly as good as advertised. However, now - a year and a half down the road - they're becoming VERY unreliable and something that I have to reset almost daily. I tried reaching out to Netgear and they're only covered by a 1 year warranty so there's not even a way to contact them. All they want you to do is go buy a new set - which ain't gonna happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage I purchased the Orbi AS6000 3-pack. I already have a Netgear Nighthawk R8000 but the WiFi coverage was weak with 4200 sq ft of house and outdoor coverage needed as well for cameras and garage coverage for irrigation system and garage door openers. I opted to keep the R8000 as my primary for all of my wired connections and shut off WiFi on it. Connected the Orbi base via Cat6 to my R8000, set my two Orbi remotes about 60 feet away for optimal coverage and used the simple app to complete setup and updates. I now have zero dead zones (including the garage, and am getting anywhere from above 1G WiFi link for close devices (15 ft) to 300Mb for devices well over a 100 ft away outdoors. I went slightly over recommendations going with the 3 node, but better than under engineering it. 3 weeks in and not a single issue for any devices (28 WiFi devices) and my wired connections remain as they were.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Desent but flaky AP Works fine as a router and access point - even if the feature set a bit weak for the price. But the firmware is pretty flaky. For instance it seems that the main router will easily brick on a power outage. An issue that appears to have existed on Orbi products for at least 2 years. And it still happens on the latest iteration.

This router has doubled the through put speeds and we have had no issues with dropped devices. Very easy to setup, took about 10 minutes and the whole system was ready to go. The hardest part was switching all the devices over to the new router. It would be interesting if Netgear could come up with a way to easily switch all devices to a new router when needed. Over all it is a great product and very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Fantastic! After setting up the NETGEAR Orbi Whole Home Mesh WiFi 6 System, I noticed a vast improvement in the speed and consistency of everything in the house that uses the internet. From phones to laptops and every service in between, speed increased and there were no glitches in the net. None. And the WiFi 6 just made everything better. Set up (by myself) was incredibly easy and quick (less than 10 minutes - start to finish). Additionally, the cost for the system I thought was fair for the services provided. If there is better out there, I have never seen or heard about it. Simply the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mostly satisfied I was excited to receive my new equipment, ready to transform my original Oribi set up into the WOW version Wifi 6. What should have been an easy plug and play install, was not. It did require a phone call to Netgear support, but in a few short minutes we were up and running. No I am not a novice, there was an issue that required a work around with manual installation not using the app. Over all, very happy with the new set up, it has maxed out what my ISP provides. Too bad I can’t get a better ISP in my area, that’s another review for another time. Highly recommend, if you have issues with the app, call Netgear and you should be up and going in no time.

Also using a network extender to cover the whole house. I made a huge mistake and changed the Network Name as suggested by the Installation process. Lost connection to everything in the house. I had to manually update all my smart home units. I really liked the fact that I didn't have to manually add each unit to a specific frequency. The Orbi knew where to put each unit that I cut over. Also liked that as each unit registered Orbi scanned for Virus and sent text message that new unit was virus free. I am very happy with the upgrade and would recommend this system to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the price Coming from a 5 year old Linksys Velop mesh system, it was time for an upgrade. Researched long and hard for a middle-to-top tier setup that would be somewhat future proof as well as improve my speeds and coverage. This Orbi system delivered in all areas. Setup was legit simple. Shockingly in fact. The 2 satellites are connected running the Ethernet backhaul and I'm getting the full 1gb download direct from the router (Cox gigablast). Seamless connections to all our devices, using the same SSID and password I had previously. What stands out for me, is the app. Tons of functions that I never could get to work on the Linksys (Immediately pause any device on your network map), and as a power user I appreciate the very advanced options using the web UI directly. Very happy with the purchase. Haven't had a single drop in a week, and our whole house is happily buzzing along with greater speeds and coverage. If you can snag this one on sale, it's absolutely a perfect pickup to refresh your mesh system.

Our Orbi hub and router are in a cabinet in the main house so I put the Orbi hub in the same cabinet. Initially the Orbi satellite in the room over garage was weak. I moved the Orbi hub out of the cabinet and onto a bookshelf thinking less obstructions would help. Immediately the strength in the room over garage got 2x better. It’s a trial and error on where to place your hub and satellites. The app set up was super easy and made the install simple and less than 15 mins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unstable It is too unstable, every week all devices are disconnected because for some strange reason there is no connection and the Wi-Fi network does not appear, when there is a power outage or the local internet goes down it never reconnects alone, I must turn off and disconnect everything for a time and turn on again. I had an apple air port router about 10 years ago and practically never disconnected. Now buy this new ORBI with AX or wifi6 technology and while it works it connects well and the connection is fast but something always happens and when I get home I see that the lights are blinking as there was no connection between the router and the satellite, I think it is a software update problem or something like that, I have many smart devices (25aprox) at home connected via Wi-Fi and many others connected via ethernet cable. Hopefully you can help me solve those problems ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly fast I was having issues with connectivity over my cable provided modem. So I connected a netgear cm1200 with the orbi mesh system and increased speeds from 500Mbps to 900 on the modem and normal speeds on my upstairs Wi-Fi is now around 700Mbps up from 200Mbps. Definitely one of the best purchases I have made when it comes to network equipment.

Does it or doesn't it? And if not will it work with an older Circle by Disney standalone 1st generation box? Thanks!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great range Setup was a little tricky. Just be aware if you have fiber internet, you might need to call your service provider to get it connected to the internet. After that, everything is a breeze. Range is awesome and speed is great. Love having a mesh system instead of the a router WiFi extender. No more buggy switching between WiFi connections!

I am no ow getting 300 to 600 Mbps depending on where I am in my approx 3500 sq ft house with 4 floors. If you have ATT fiber, you will need to keep your current modem/router, but you can passthrough to the Orbi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Missing Key Components Upgraded (I thought) from an Archer C5400 to the RBR 850. How does a $700 router not have Parental Controls - who filled out the 22 reviews to give an app (Smart Parental Control) that doesn't exist 3.7 rating? Been told for 4 months that it's a couple months away. Also the app dashboard states all these vulnerabilities but doesn't give a log or how to fix it. Might be best to go back to TP-Link and use their supplied Tether app so I can use Parental Controls during the summer until Netgear understands that being able to control who using your router is a standard these days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Fast! I have gigabit internet but was constantly experiencing streaming buffering, slow internet surfing, and weak connections with my two AC 1900 mesh routers. Got the Netgear AX6000 router with one satellite mesh and what a difference! I put the new Netgear router and satellite in the same locations in opposite ends of the house as the old AC1900 routers were placed. Setup was extremely fast and easy using the Orbi app. I had plugged an existing ethernet connection into the router and satellite before setup and was pleased to see it automatically chose the wired connection between the two for the backhaul without me having to specify it. Setup was successfully completed in 10 minutes. I was pleasantly surprised to find that using my old SSID and password all of my devices automatically connected to the new network hardware without me having to individually refresh them. Easy Peasy!! Performance is outstanding too! Remote locations of the house used to struggle to get 200Mbps. Now I get over 400 Mbps in those same locations. No more buffering, lightning fast surfing, and strong signal everywhere!

Speeds would fluctuate throughout the entire day sometimes dropping to below 100 mbps. Since switching to the AX6000 in every room we are seeing steady speeds of 475-495 mbps. Although the system is strong enough to cover my entire house ~2600 sq ft. We still put a satellite in my wife’s off. There is no drop off even with both of us having to VPN in on two laptops and two phones. I’m very surprised and happy with this significant improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not so easy Firstly the product seems to work well. However installing it required over two hours on the phone with a very helpful technician.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game Changer We use a lot of internet in our house. My wife and I both work from home, the kids even have remote learning days at their school once in a while and are on Zoom all day. Plus with all the WiFi connected smart devices in this house, our old router was struggling to keep up. There were dead spots upstairs that were so bad, I would have to take my phone off of WiFi just to load a web page. Our video door bell was so slow that by the time I was able to load the video feed the person at the door was usually gone. The Orbi has fixed all of our WiFi woes and is worth every penny! My wife’s work computer upstairs went from 3 Mbps to around 80 Mbps! Our video doorbell loads the feed almost immediately now. And the kids have stopped complaining about the internet being “down” or slow. I wish I would’ve pulled the trigger on this product much sooner. For our personal internet needs the Orbi is a game changer and I couldn’t recommend it enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive and poor software but stable and fast. The overall Orbi 850 system is too expensive for what it promises. It takes a while and a lot of frustration to set it up and the software is too basic. On top of all this, you are expected to pay for Armor and parental Control, which by the way don’t work well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast I recently purchased this mesh system to upgrade from a Google mesh. My previous system had reliable coverage and signal but throttled speeds around 100 Mbps. I have a fiber connection with regular speeds between 900-980 Mbps, so the service was being wasted. Once I put the new system in, my speeds immediately jumped to 225-500 Mbps around the house. I have done speed tests inside my home and all around our yard and the speed and signal strength remain fast and strong. Our streaming services run smoother, online multiplayer video games play with less or no lag, and the added security of this system makes it a great purchase. This system is fantastic for larger properties that have fiber speeds but may be overkill for slower internet and/or smaller properties. I highly recommend this mesh system, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't consider Security a priority!! I wasn't impressed with the speed difference from my old Netgear Nighthawk RAX80. There was about a 5% increase but not worth spending $700.00. As a cyber security professional, security is very important. That being said, Netgear doesn't have a baseline of free security applications/mechanisms incorporated in this device to provide some sort of protection for the consumer/family. They are mirroring Apple, nickel and dime a customer for everything that should be free standard security application within the product. I am sure a third party GUI interface could be replace with the current one but of course this may violate the warranty. Though the product may be pleasing to others but the purchaser should consider forcing Netgear to install basic security applications (Parental Controls,etc) as well as giving you more control to manage their devices. Their products are very expensive and the consumer shouldn't have to purchase a monthly subscription to protect their family. Netgear has given me a talking point at the next cyber security conference. For the lack of free basic security, I've returned the device and begun looking for a much better product that doesn't require a subscription.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fixed my problems I was using the ASUS RT-AX58U and also an older RT-AC68U in “Ai-Mesh” mode and my experience was terrible. My phone would periodically just stop downloading anything despite having a full set of wifi-bars. I decided to drop the AC68U and go solo on the AX58U. It worked better, but I still had to turn my phones wifi off at home in frustration and I had issues getting connection on devices at the other end of my house. I read reviews for the RBK852 and decided to bite the bullet. I have never been happier with a wifi system. Easy setup, full throughput from my Spectrum Gigabit more consistently than I got through the ASUS, and my phone achieves 400~600 mbps anywhere in the house and I still have a stable connection in my backyard and garage (where I have some wifi devices.

It's too bad not all newer Orbi models are compatible so I can use the older model satellites to connect to the new model. Fortunately, the AX6000 was compatible so I got a reliable mesh router and was able to use the older AX4200 satellites to increase the WIFI coverage in the house. The linking of the AX6000 was quick and smooth, but it took a while and several tries before the router recognized the AX4200 satellite. Now all is well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Three times a charm After using Asus Wifi router for several years, I purchased two new routers to create a mesh of a high speed hub and two nodes. This configuration proved to be very unreliable. Three months ago, I purchased the Google Next WiFi mesh consisting of a router and two access points. While I observed an improvement in reliability, the network still disconnected enough to cause issues with the work from home scenario and online video meetings. After talking with a neighbor who highly recommended the Orbi offerings, I purchased the Orbi 6 System with the router and two satellites. The performance and reliability have been outstanding. I could not be happier. While being expensive, the Orbi gear has been worth every penny since the work from home situation has greatly improved. I highly recommend this system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Grass is really Greener...and FASTER! After being told by Xfinity my equipment was too old (Apple Time Capsule & Motorola 3.0 modem (and surprisingly they didn't even try to sell me on their rented modem/router) due to issues I was having I came here to the Netgear website and chose the Orbi RBK852. All I can say is WOW! I read so many reviews about it and almost every review on the web was raving about the performance. Firstly, the Orbi is a real beauty. Great looks to fit in any decor. Just to be clear, I'm a techie freak so I'm pretty particular about my equipment. I upgraded my Xfinity plan to 1Gig and I also bought the Nighthawk CM2000 modem. Direct connection from Xfinity is 1200Mbps. My iPhone achieves wireless speeds as high 960Mbps when I'm close to the Orbi and 600-750Mbps anywhere else in the house. I have not experienced a single drop in performance or a dropped signal. I have 10+ wireless clients in my home and the Orbi has been 100% reliable. I did however check out the Nighthawk RAX200 since it had a couple of more features over the Orbi but the RAX200 was a buggy experience at best. Speeds fluctuated and were often 200Mbps slower than the Orbi. It bricked 3 times over a weekend setting from reboots leading me to do hard resets. Obviously not good firmware. I returned it. I would recommend the Orbi RBK852 to anyone. It's pricey but I got what I paid for which is reliability and speed. I can see why Netgear pushes the Orbi so much on their website. They put a lot of engineering into this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding speed and range I purchased the AX6000 to replace my Nighthawk R7000 which was fast at close range but had range, speed and stability issues in my house. The AX6000 was easy to install and the speed and range was outstanding. My internet service is 500 Mbps and I was getting 520+ Mbps wireless download speeds in the most remote corners of my house where previously I had dead zones. those speeds were with standard wifi devices too as we don't have any WI Fi 6 devices. I have yet to test stability over the course of time but for now my range and speed needs are met. Yes it's pricey but worth it. My only disappointment is that I wish it had a USB port with support for Ready Share printers and USB hard drives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reevaluating My Purchase I just got the WiFi 6 and the main router seems to be working fine although my “sync” button doesn’t have the “feedback” like on my satellite so I never know if I’m actually pressing it until I see the blue light start beating. Pretty sure it’s a manufacture error seeing as how the satellite sync button actually has a minor click when you press it. Besides that I can’t for whatever reason get my Satellite to sync at all no matter how many reboots/restarts every time it just says that 0 satellites found even though when I bring up the network in the app it shows my satellite just wont pair the two to allow me to cover my house. And it’s not a distance issue either as I put the two in the same room just to test it out heck I’ve literally tried syncing it in every room upstairs just to see even though I knew it wasn’t going to work I had to try just to say I did. I like the product and want to keep it but at the same time for how much money I have invested in this product I shouldn’t have gotten a defective satellite nor the minor paint flaws and a faulty sync button the quality of what I got is as if I got a refurbished product. As of right now I wouldn’t recommend this product wait until the company figures it out because as I can see I’m not the only one with issues. Like I said I do like the product and WiFi range but for what I spent and the quality of equipment, all the defects on a brand new out of the box product. I’m highly disappointed in my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speeds We upgraded to this mesh router from the previous Orbi 5 and it’s a huge improvement on range and speed. We have Hue, Alexa, Sonos, Ring products, TVs streaming, and gamers gaming. That congested the previous system. After upgrading to this orbi 6 mesh system, everything runs smoothly with high internet speeds. Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS IS AMAZING I had watched several YouTube videos and read numerous reports to upgrade my Wi-Fi. My goal was to reach 100plus feet to my gym that is in my garage. The Orbi 6 did that seamlessly. The set up was not difficult and the results were outstanding. NETGEAR is a trusted product with customer service that it knowledgeable and understanding. I would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Orbi WiFi6 Mesh AX6000 Works great but the setup was more difficult than the directions led me to believe. Took me about an hour. Had to do some manually. Much faster and more robust than my old router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We have a separate garage with an apartment above which is close to the main house, we could not get a wireless signal because of the concrete block construction. We got a quote of $4000 for all kinds of crazy equipment to run the signal through the telephone wires. I purchased the Orbi with 2 satellites and the problem in resolved. Now running YouTube TV in the apartment, this is a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance These routers do not seem to be bothered by the walls of my house and give me very close to 100% of the bandwidth provided by my cable company. They are easy to set up and manage for a beginner, but they allow more advanced options for those who have the knowledge and the need, such as configuring IPv6. They are on the expensive side, but I would say that they bring value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blazing fast We replaced Xfinity rented equipment with Netgear purchased from Amazon. After four hours of Xfinity service tech messing with it, we got it working. We are now getting speeds of 750 mbps while laying in the pool watching Netflix. It is heaven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable Wifi, Easy Setup, Exceptional Performance Got this about 4 months ago, replaced 5+ year old Apple Time Capsule wifi5 system with AirPort Extreme bridge - was ok, but dropped out a lot and was not stable in large home of 4000 sf with large outdoor area and full basement. Apple discontinued their router products and no hope of firmware upgrades, and wifi 6 is WAY better and more advanced than any other previous wifi generations. Orbi setup of 2 units covers entire house including 2 floors (both units on main floor of house), basement and massive outdoor area approx 150 ft radius around house - all at super fast speeds that are stable all the time. I've routinely had 3 separate, simultaneous web streaming video calls and no issues - pay for Xfiniti cable service at 180 down/25up. Getting all of this speed from every device no matter where in the house - and every device is wifi, no hard wires at all except for TC. Very impressed. Expensive, but support and firmware upgrades, app service, Armor options, and ease of setup and monitoring.... are all great! You get what you pay for! And for Apple fans who want to continue using Time Capsule as a backup for Mac's - just turn TC's wifi off, set to bridge-mode, and plug ethernet cable into Orbi LAN port and continue using it for backups - works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great but... The RBK852 is a great mesh system. I was able to set up the system with very few problems. The problem with it is the information of the connected devices is incorrect. Both the mobile app and the web app display incorrect information on what devices are connected and to which (base or satellite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Router Ever I have owned Asus non-mesh routers (poor coverage for my 2,600 s.f. house) and the previous Orbi RBK50 (excellent for the whole house), but the new RBK852 ax6000 is by far the best coverage and best speed with no connection looses at all. Could not be happier with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Wi-Fi Coverage I purchased the RBK852 based on many excellent reviews with the hope that it would resolve my home Wi-Fi issues (thick plaster walls, numerous IoT devices (45+, streaming on multiple 4K TVs). My FIOS GB router couldn't handle these challenges and was randomly rebooting 5-6 times a day; as a person who works from home this was not acceptable. The RBK852 has no issues with the plaster walls, nor the number of IoT devices, TVs, phones, laptops, etc. The ORBI system provides for amazingly fast Wi-Fi throughout my home and even into my detached garage (~500MB/sec on 5GHz and ~175MB/sec on 2.4GHz). I'm truly amazed at ORBI's performance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect So far my Orbi is close to perfect. We are just having one issue with getting our third satellite to connect to our router. For some reason we can not get the third satellite to go online. I have not really had time to mess with it but I will do so this afternoon because my son is getting his gaming computer this evening and he needs it to be hard wired. I specifically purchased the three satellite system so he could have one in his room and of course that is the one we are having trouble with. Hopefully talking to Netgear support will be simple and smooth. I am dreading it and I work in an internet and tech support field!!
