Netgear Orbi provides an easy setup and a powerful Wi-Fi signal.

About five years ago, I installed my first Orbi system in my home. Since the technology behind WiFi networks has changed pretty dramatically since then, we’ve ended upgraded our wireless routers a couple of times in the meantime. The newest Orbi AXE11000 is the latest addition to our network.


The Netgear Orbi AXE11000 is an industry-first quad-band Wi-Fi 6E system. In addition to the dedicated Wi-Fi connections, users also get a 10 gigabit wired Internet port for ultra-fast speeds and a huge device capacity (can stream on up to 16 screens at one time).
