Depending on your local environment, Mesh may or may not suit you.

For me, Orbi works very well: https://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/1...36-post24.html.

I suggest you get the more expensive Orbi Pro because it allows you to set 3 different SSIDs. The Orbi can't do it except for the telnet workaround which, in turn, may bring other issues.

Netgear Orbi

Please don't buy this piece of Sh@t! I have the orbi rbk 50 (2 sets) , amazing speed, great coverage BUT frequent disconnects. This was what wifi is not meant to be. Imagine , you are streaming or playing a game online and.... wifi disconnected. FRUSTRATING!!!! Go check out the orbi forum and read about all those people complaining about Orbi. Even after numerous firmware updates, it is still SH@T! They basically shipped out a flawed product. I'm in the market for a new system. If you are brave and want to buy/test the orbi. I have 2 sets available, will release each at $250, one year left on the warranty, no receipt and box, buy as is. I highly recommend not buying it, even from myself. But if you brave... pls feel free to PM me.

Are you using the satellites with Ethernet backhaul or just simply the router alone? Did you setup telnet?

Latest beta looks ok

Unfortunately WiFi congestion is a real issue especially in appartments.

Hi, I am interested in getting the orbi rbk 50 to try out. Just wondering if you are still selling your units? Tks.

Sorry I can't send PM yet....
