Netgear Orbi supports MU-MIMO which can penetrate thru thick wall and it supersede 2.4 and 5GHz signal in other words, there is no need to select either of the ac signal to login to the router. Thus orbi is ezy to use even for novice users

Smoke people also must smoke correctly.
What has MU-MIMO got to do with signal strength ?

Seems like Orbi is now a true Mesh WIFI with the latest update...


Announcing the availability for OrbiOS 2.0.
This release includes 2 community requested features that we're happy to deliver:

1) Daisy Chain - which allows Orbi Satellites to talk to each other. This extends the reach of the Orbi system, especially in long or tall floorplans.

2) Improvements to the Attached Device page, which will now show which Orbi each device is connected to, and over which frequency (2.4 or 5GHz). This page also shows how each Orbi Satellite's upstream Orbi is.

3) Due to field feedback, we've brought back the Radio Transmit Power control

4) Allows you to rename devices & your Orbi Satellites via orbilogin
It also has many bug fixes and incremental improvements

I didn't understand the meaning of MESH intially.. Now I do. Thanks.

I guess the further away, the more device it has to talk to before reaching the router. So if it's talking to the 3rd in line, the 3rd inline has to relay to 2nd and then 1st before reaching the router.

Could be quite slow if the place is huge, right ?

You always have the option of getting extra units. Latency will never be as fast as wired solutions.
