NETGEAR Orbi RBK23 mesh WiFi system

I purchased this a couple of weeks ago and ended up swapping it for the Orbi RBK50 system. The size and layout of my house proved to be problematic for the 3 station configuration. For a start I had to have the router in a fixed location and I also had to connect a number of devices that have no WiFi capability to the network via Lan cable which further limited my options.

I experienced a situation with the RBK23 setup where 2 stations had a similar strength signal in a high use area. In addition the signal strength on each access point fluctuated slightly. This resulted in the stronger signal alternating between 2 access points. This ...view more

a tricky product to install

I was one of the unlucky customers who had to resort to the Netgear help desk to get this product to fire up. Firstly under a high demand service with Covid 19 kicking off, You could not fault the service from Netgear. Those guys from India and the Philippines worked under difficult home circumstances. the Netgear help desk is second to none if you have difficulty connecting. Not everyone has had difficulty as I bought this product from the previous reviews listed. If you do have problems then get onto Netgear quickly. Secondly the product itself. Once fired up ( our house is 350 sq m) everyone went to the outer reaches of out house and...view more

Easy Set Up

Major improvement switching from sketchy 6 year old Huawei router from Vodafone to Fritz box from 2 Degrees, combined with the Orbi mesh system. Complete coverage throughout our 2 story brick 200m2 home. Base unit upstairs and 2 satellites downstairs covers 5 people’s gadgets no worries. Handy to have Guest wifi setup with their own password for when all the kids mates pile around. Orbi App seems quite intuitive with optional extra features, including extra security & more featured parental controls on subscription. Simple speed test is good to check now & then. PlayStation users find it a big improvement on what we had before. Very happy...view more

A shade pricey but well worth every cent!

I have had shocking experience with wireless repeaters in the past, so after moving into a new house and having fibre installed, I once again got that sinking feeling in my stomach when I realised I would have to do something similar to improve the reach and strength of my wifi. After doing a fair amount of research I discovered the 'mesh' technology solution. I was instore ready to buy the TP-link product when one of the instore team highly recommended the Orbi. After a bit more research myself, I bit the bullet and I'm glad I did. Setup at home using the app was SUPER simple, and my speeds and coverage are nothing short of incredible. We...view more

Exactly What I Was Looking For

Covered all dead spots in a double story house, outside and down the driveway. Works great, replaces your existing router and has a web interface for setup as well as App. Liked so much I bought another set for family.

Great coverage

Yes it was time to step up in the world and keep up with the latest. Netgear Orbi was the one and it lived up to expectations.
Works great, good coverage, good speed.
The only bad thing is with the product, you can not buy the mesh satellites separate, so future expansion was doubtful.
So you have to buy the 3 pack upfront.

Simple and effective

solved any networking issue I had with coverage or connecting smart devices around the house.
the speed around the whole house is now as good as being hardwired right into the modem.

Does what it does really well - eventually.

Connected to Vodafone modem which was connected to a fibre ONT.
Setup app is easy to use when everything goes to plan but gives you no help at all when things don't work. Orbi could connect to the Vodafone device and the Orbi satellites, but couldn't see the internet. The app eventually came back and said the Orbi IP was conflicting with the Vodafone router IP (192.168.1.1) so it automatically changed Orbi to10.0.0.1 but it still didn't work - I'm guessing the ONT IP was 10.0.0.1 as well. I changed the Vodafone device IP to 192.168.0.1 then reset the Orbi and tried again - Bingo!
Great coverage and speeds - one network name and one password...view more

Well worth the investment!

I bought these on preference over the Google Wi-Fi system due to the speed difference and the dedicated backhaul channel. Install was simple, though after starting up the satellite units did take some time to update. I used mine in Access Point (bridging) mode as I still need to use my ISPs router and operation so far has been flawless.
My only negative comment is that I would like an easy way to enter MAC addresses to associate with client names. Highly recommended.

Orbi RBK23

It was a bit difficult setting up this product, and I had to try a couple of different locations for the two satellites. But once I sorted that out, the product provides excellent WiFi coverage throughout our house, which is really helpful under the current (and coming) COVID-19 circumstances.

Orbi RBK23

Poor performance, great coverage of WiFi around the house but really bad connectivity. So you get good access to an unstable network.
Product de-stabilises access.

Good product

Easy setup and good bandwidth. Also good for back haul with tri-band. Supports 2 Netflix channels and gaming easily on fibre. Only single LAN port on base will be restrictive if you want to run NAS and printer but can get around this with a lan router.

A
While that should all be technically possible, unless there was a specific feature you needed out of the Spark router you would ideally want to drop that out of the system and have the Orbi act as the primary router, with either an AP added to one of the nodes, or an additional satellite added for greater coverage.
