Netgear Orbi has three distinct frequencies on which it works, routers generate the signals of 2.4GHz, 5Ghz, and another 5GHz frequency.


Although the quality of service provided by Netgear Orbi is unbeatable, the same is the case of its price. The price tag of Netgear Orbi can surprise any person. Its two-pack kit that contains a router and a satellite costs $400 and it covers the area of 5,000 square feet. If you want to increase the area of coverage by 2,000 square feet you can simply buy another satellite that costs $250. In the market, no other brand costs this much for providing these services. However, according to Orbi, they provide greater per unit coverage.


Netgear Orbi comprises of two parts, one is the router while the other one is a satellite. Both of these devices are oval cross-sectional devices. Each device has 889g of weight. These two devices are in white with color-coded LEDs. The dimension of these two gadgets is 8.9×6.7×3.1 inches.

These LEDs are used to tell whether the connection is good or not. Amber color of lights indicates weak internet connection, magenta shows that the internet is gone while blue color shows that the connection is smooth.

The rear of Netgear Orbi Router contains a Sync button, one Ethernet WAN port for modem connection,  three Ethernet LAN ports used for connecting with other routers, a standard DC power port as well as a USB 2.0 port for network-attached storage. On the other hand, the satellite has all of these things but rather than a WAN port there is a fourth LAN port.

All the applications on the cell phones run very smoothly. E-Gaming runs very smoothly over the Netgear Orbi connection. We can watch movies on Netflix 4k resolution quality without buffering even in the basement.

The toughest part is reconnecting the router and satellite in case of accidental power loss. It takes a lot of time to reconnect it due to syncing of both the devices.
