Great WiFi AP, Terrible R

Been using the Orbi for 2 weeks now. Great WiFi, but terrible as a router.

The Orbi setup was absolutely a breeze, if all you want is good WiFi and a "working" Ethernet (a.k.a wired) connection. The setup was up and running in minutes.

The WiFi speed was up-to-snuff with full saturation of the available bandwidth no matter where I am in the house, unless I locked myself in a room that's as far away as possible from the router or satellite, even then the connection was stable with very usable speed. Very stable connection with no connection drops reported from my family.

The Ethernet connection however is a completely different story...view more

There are some issues ...

As another reviewer has said, check out the Netgear Orbi user community forum and go into this with eyes wide open. Orbi has almost twice the number of negative reviews on Amazon compared to other Mesh systems. Approx 1 in 5 users are unhappy. However the majority (80 are pleased with it.

The RBK50 Orbi stands out from other mesh products by having faster speeds, longer ranges and four Ethernet ports on every router and satellite. This is largely because it has a dedicated 5Ghz channel for WifI backhaul (connection between the router and Sats). It can also be wired for backhaul between the router and sats via Ethernet.

This is a great system. It seamlessly switches to the stronger WiFi signal (router or satellite) as we move about the house. Did a manual setup using WiFi (which was easy) for a couple of reasons. Printed the Spark login and other settings from old router and typed them in.

Don't get sucked in to coverage

Purchased the AC3000 RB50 twin pack, Awesome speed when close and not too bad to setup. But coverage in 220sqm house is shit.
Worse still I was told i could add a 3rd satellite. Try and buy a single satellite in NZ ....Now just pissed off.

Netgear should do better, very very very bad experience

For such high price, Netgear should do better. first , add a sticker in their box, clearly state USE WEB GUI to set up, do NOT use Apps, because if you're SPARK fiber customer, the Apps will never ever get it works. There's only one small paper/card in the retail box and tell you to use Apps to set up but it will NEER EVRE works. The product sell in NZ, Netgear is so so lazy. Is that hard to let the NZ customer know? So from now on I won't buy their product anymore. Charger customer high price then Netgear have to improve/fix their useless Apps for NZ consumer. Let the customer pay such high price and then customer have to Google how...view more

You can't buy any additional satellites for this product

Had this product for about two years. WiFi coverage is adequate for most purposes, but not video calls if you're further than about 3m away from the satellite. Tried to buy an additional satellite to boost coverage. Was told you could buy additional satellites if required when I made the original purchase, but it turns out you can't... anywhere in NZ. Beware of this trap.

Disappointment

I have never been as disappointed with a product.
I have been buying netgear products for years and finally invested in this RBK50 mesh system - what a disappointment .
Worse to extend the coverage - I realised I needed another satellite only to find that you cannot purchase just a separate/additional satellite in NZ. So I took the bullet and purchased another pair so I could have an additional satellite and use the spare router as an access point. So it is all set up and working but there are two issues.

I am using a skinny broadband VDSL service and we must use the skinny modem - may be that contributes. But frequently the Model and t...view more

If you thought Orbi was bad, just hold for NetGear Support

If you ever need support stay away from NetGear!

A google search shows there is a known issue with this product but their support team don't know anything about it. Google "Netgear Orbi" and the first result "is blocking websites" but NetGear don't have any information, knowledge or support for issues.

Support staff repeat questions and requests, sound uninformed and hang up on the caller if they don't have a solution they can resolve quickly. We've spent days over the last week trying to resolve the issue but the worst part was the service. We've just sent Orbi back.

The product doesn't work as intended. If you ever need service or ...view more

Came with problems

When it worked the coverage and speed were excellent, so the product can be a real winner.

But unfortunately the set i had came with issue, constant rebooting and other problems. firmware upgrades / downgrades didnt provide much change. Going though an exchange process and hope to report back that it was just a dud unit. like i said when it was working, it was excellent and as a mesh system worked seamless across the house..

Difficult Machine

The one thing they don't state is there is often a problem connecting this to your TV - once you go on line and look up fixes for this you find lots of people have this issue and there appears to be no easy fix. Other than that it is easy to set up - I find I have to crash it about once a month to reconnect it. All and all not a great product given the price

Orbi for gaming issues

Internet connectivity and range throughout our home was appalling before having the orbi!
We can now actually use our wifi in every room of the house!!!

The only thing I'm slightly disappointed in, is hubby has reported little to zero improvement in his gaming (PS4) - I believe this could be due to our modem as the internet on other devices is so much better than before!

Definitely recommend getting this if you're having trouble connecting to your wifi, if loading times are long, or if you're constantly only picking up 1 bar or wifi signal!
