Dead on arrival

The Orbi modem/router did not respond to power, step one of setting it up. The power switch was on, pushed in, and I tried it with the power cable from my current modem/router. The unit itself was the problem.

Unstable

I have owned this device for four months ago. I had issues with the device dropping internet. Not entirely. The wifi showed active but there was no way to manage the device when it went into this state. Spent time to get a new device. Same problem. Lived with it until randomly the WiFi dropped and came back. Just not a product I would recommend and I know its happened to others. Netgear needs to do the right thing with these and recall them.

Constant connection issues.

I have had this for about a year, it was a huge improvement over my very old equipment. Shortly after I got this my internet started to drop out every day to multiple times a day. I’ve searched forums for answers, contacted them and didn’t get any help. Firmware updates, restarting, resetting, changing advanced settings as recommended on the forums, reverting back to original, nothing has helped. Netgear knows about the problem, it’s a widespread issue and they have yet to resolve it. I recommend buying something else.

Not so impressed.

Compared to my Netgear R6300 this is not doing so well. Had issues setting it up despite the claim it would be easy with Xfinity. Had to call them and have them flip some switches and spent some time on support. Then like 3 days later had to reset the system to factory and redo it again as speeds and performance awful. Finally settled in and was doing good but I have and avg 1600sq ft cape home and cant even get signal to stay connected on my back deck. With my old R6300 I could go sit in my garden 50 ft from house and still watch youtube with no issues. This one...constantly buffers and says Not connected...back online.. Not connected... I pay for 350mbps service and a few times have gotten 350+ but usually 200 -250 wired. XboxOne though seems to get only 25 - 60 mbps WIRED. Handles enough devices but not stellar with speed or range for claimed 2000sq ft coverage. Software also not impressive and have had about a year now and never got a firmware update so far. No QoS settings either. Just links you to SpeedTest. Software also seems catered to mesh but using this as stand alone unit as advertised 2000sq ft coverage but not getting that at all. Also, I have ended up turning off 'Circle' as it caused issues with my sons ability to use Microsoft store despite permissions and just didnt have the level of fine tuning I expected. Personally I would have liked a newer version of the R6300 with some of todays modem features. I like that its a Modem and Router in one but still needs improving. For the high price tag - expected better. Family wants me to ditch it. Have rebooted it like 6 times in as many months trying to get better performance, range and stability but so far its not impressive.

Very very fast. No I mean really fast

So it’s been a year and I could not be happier. Leaving a home on a large lot and only the furthest parts of my yard have no wifi. My 16 devices are always ready to work. Anxious to see if my next home with 2 stories instead of 1 will still have the coverage I am in love with. You get what you pay for. This was an expensive option but since there are 2 of us working from home it gives great return on investment.

Not for Smart Home

its been a year now , happy with the router performance but this one is not designed for smart devices . The devices randomly stop working , i need to reboot and set up the devices again which is hit or miss. The smart devices will fail to connect with error messages " disable AP isolation" . This option does not even exist on the router to turn on/of .I need reboot the router multiple time to se up the smart devices .

Works!

I had problems with my cable modem WiFi router dropping and assigning duplicate IPs so I looked around and decided on this equipment. Easy setup with the app, so far no dropouts or other problems. We have over 25 WiFi devices and have had no problems so far. Good coverage throughout or 3800 sq ft home

Asked by: Hilary
This would replace the modem and router you would get from an internet provider. But you would still need an internet plan with a provider.
