NETGEAR Orbi AC3000 Home WiFi System Overview
The Orbi is a home WiFi system from Netgear. Similar to other mesh Wifi networks, or WiFi extenders, one router connects to your internet via ethernet cable and the other(s) are placed around the home or office. These combined units distribute your WiFi signal to transmit a greater WiFi signal throughout your home and help to eliminate dead spots. The maximum square footage covered will depend on how many Orbi Satellites you purchase. There are also 3 different types of Satellites that vary in how much coverage they each offer, but you can mix and match depending on your preference.
What we like about this system compared with some WIFI extenders in the past is that your network is combined into one single network, rather than each extender having its own network name. As a result, devices automatically connecting to the Satellite offering the best signal. The tri-band technology also ensures that more devices can connect at once without causing data bottlenecks. Through the companion App you can monitor the network and set parental controls, as well as set up a guest network so others can connect whilst your your home network remains secure.
Netgear are one of the largest networking companies in the world. As such, we think the Orbi is likely one of the best home wifi networks out there, which also makes it one of the pricier options around. If you want to invest in this system, we recommend waiting for the Netgear Orbi Black Friday & Cyber Monday deals to get a better price. Depending on the size of your home and how many people are on the network, it could be worth searching for other home WiFi system deals this Black Friday & Cyber Monday to see all your options.
