Orbi is the World’s First Tri-Band Home WiFi System. From your front yard to your home office, to your pool, Orbi gives you reliable, secure, and crazy fast WiFi to every inch of your home.
No more dead zones upstairs, no dropped connections through walls, just WiFi everywhere. The Orbi Home WiFi System reaches up to 4,000 square feet through WiFi barriers like walls, stairs and doors using Tri-Band Mesh technology. Need more coverage? Just add an Orbi Satellite to instantly expand your WiFi System and reach.
Orbi is the only Home WiFi System using Tri-Band Mesh technology. Other mesh systems use dual band technology which can slow down your WiFi speed as you add more devices, or even more mesh units. Orbi provides a dedicated third band that provides the fastest possible speed between Orbi units letting you increase your range without limiting your speed.
No, other mesh systems and range extenders slow your speed as you add more devices or mesh units. Orbi creates a single high speed network that gives your entire home complete coverage. Orbi dynamically optimizes your connections for you without having to reconnect, giving you the fastest speed throughout your whole home.
Buffering shouldn’t be a part of family movie night. Orbi helps prevent buffering and lag by creating a high speed Internet superhighway for all of your devices. Orbi Tri-Band Mesh WiFi System works with your current ISP’s modem to maximize the speed you are paying for, to every inch of your home and beyond.
Control your NETGEAR WiFi network with simple voice commands by using Amazon Alexa™ and the NETGEAR Skill.
Unlike some Home WiFi Systems, Orbi works with your Internet service provider right out of the box without needing to change your current equipment. Orbi uses a single WiFi name (SSID) and with just a couple of clicks, your secure WiFi network will be ready in no time. NETGEAR does not require you to sign up for an account to use the Orbi Home WiFi System. Use the Orbi app to install & personalize your Orbi Home WiFi System.
