The RBK852 Orbi AX6000 Wireless Tri-Band Gigabit Mesh Wi-Fi System from Netgear is engineered to deliver extremely fast and reliable network speeds with up to 5000 square feet of coverage. The system consists of a router and one satellite to let you expand Wi-Fi to more of your home. The system is capable of a total 6000 Mb/s of throughput via Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax). Clients have access to a 2.4 GHz signal for up to 1200 Mb/s or a 5 GHz signal for up to 2400 Mb/s.

Another 5 GHz signal delivers 2400 Mb/s to the router and satellite via a dedicated quad-stream backhaul. This is meant to allow for fast communication between the network without interfering with client network access. This speed is meant to help support stable 4K and 8K video streaming. To achieve this kind of speed and coverage, Netgear has incorporated 8 internal antennas with high-powered amplifiers, all powered by a 2.2 GHz quad-core processor.

Beamforming & MU-MIMO
This Wi-Fi system supports both beamforming and MU-MIMO technologies to help maximize speed and ensure a reliable connection. Beamforming actively directs the internal antennas to focus on the devices accessing the system via either band, while MU-MIMO gives multiple users multiple dedicated network connections.
Seamless Roaming
Both the router and satellite act as one system so you can roam between each device's coverage area without losing connection.
Voice Control with Alexa & Google
The Orbi supports both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant to allow you to manage the network via voice commands. Ask either digital assistant to pause Wi-Fi, turn on the guest network, and more.
Orbi App
Download the Orbi app for IOS and Android mobile devices for wireless network management via an intuitive graphical interface. Here's just some of what you can do with the Orbi app:

Manage network devices
Turn on guest Wi-Fi
Run internet speed tests
Additional Features
2.5 Gb/s WAN port for fast throughput on supported modems

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Orbi was easy to install and provides powerful wifi signal through my two story home including exterior patio and pool area.

Simple, elegant, fast, and reliable!

I purchased the Orbi system after significant issues with a different WiFi 6 router. The Orbi was setup in less than 10 minutes and the speeds throughout the house are very fast. A PS5 on a wired connection to the satellite unit that is 30ft away still registers 750Mb on a 1Gb pipe to the house!

Just a high quality product period

Simple to instal. Plug and play. Product itself is high quality. I upgraded from a previous version and I can’t say enough good things. Actually getting the speeds I’m paying for

Sleek appearance, great coverage

I purchased a refurbished item, which I had to do a ‘restore to factory settings’ upon receipt. However, it works just fine. The router requires a modem!! I bought a NetGear Nighthawk modem figuring they would be most compatible. I chatted with Spectrum, gave them my MAC address, and the modem was up and running. I connected the Orbi router as instructed, and it was easy to find in my WiFi list. Haven’t had an issue since, and my previous buffering issues with the Spectrum-issued combo substandard unit are gone. The Orbi is expensive but worth the investment.

Works great, more info about PW needed

The mesh wifi works great, but the information about replacing a old wifi router and how the PW works is not easy to follow.

I’m getting what I needed

So far I’m getting what I needed from the Orbi. I have range to my motorhome and art studio; All the way across my entire house too. Easy setup through the Orbi app.

Really easy setup

I bought this to replace a pair of Asus 86U WiFi routers that I run in meshed AP mode. The setup on the Orbi was really easy - plug in the main router, then the satellite, and they automatically mesh. In comparison, one needs to login to the Asus routers through the web browser interface and manually set them to mesh, designating one as the master and the other as the satellite. The Orbi smartphone app was easier to use than logging in to the Orbi router through a web browser and functioned beautifully, although it did not offer the option to switch from router (DHCP) mode into AP mode and use the Orbi solely as a WiFi radio without router functionality. Had to login through the web browser to do that. Range wise - I found the 5 Mhz band range a bit better than the Asus, and the 2.4 about the same. The Orbi system automatically switches to whichever band will provide the best signal, a nice feature. The system is pricey, but comes with a 1 year warranty and hopefully lasts awhile. Online support and "how tos" on the Netgear site are superior. I rate the system only 4 stars because of its price, and I had expected a bit more range from the radios. At a better price, it deserves 5 stars. I have a Netgear Nighthawk 7900 that has superior range over anything I have ever used, and given the Orbi price, expected something close. Orbi is very good, but not outstanding on that front.
