We live in a TALL old house, getting a signal from the Modem to the third floor is problematic at best. Non-existant at worst. Tried Access Points, extenders, Mondo=Powerful Routers with not much success. Add in iPads, tablets, ROKU, laptops, phones and a crazy huge assortment of wireless devices, speed was an issue where we did get a good signal. So I bought the Orbi (Router and Satelite) home Starter Kit. Read the instructions (3 minutes) downloaded the app to my Galaxy phone and was up and running in less than ten minutes. Speed tests show triple previous speeds down, about the same up (we hit max the ISP allowed previously) Double the speed on the third floor (when we had little or no signal before). Regularly running two iPads, Android and iOS phones, 22 Computers, and ROKU, always a strong fast signal. and speed.

I was so excited to get this product, and it has a lot of great reviews, but my experience was awful. It was easy to set up, and worked okay for a few hours. Then, I started noticing my WiFi searching, and disconnecting more than 20 times a day. I couldn't use this WiFi for streaming or my TVs because it kept disconnecting. I tried all the options per Netgear Support page, and then began reading others' similar complaints online. My house is NOT that large. So disappointed. Returning it tomorrow.

I purchased the Orbi AC2200 (Router & Satellite-RBR-40/RBS-40) hoping to replace my gateway that kept dropping the wireless signal and have better success. I have only had the Orbi for a week but have not dropped the wireless one time! I have Comcast blast and I am consistently at 250 MBs as I test the speed on the Orbi app on my phone on a regular basis just to keep track of it. No weakness in signal anywhere in the house upstairs or downstairs which was not the case with the gateway. For this system to get maximum speed and performance I would recommend a Cat7 ethernet cable but no lower then cat6. Overall I am very satisfied with this product.

I bought this recently and it does what it says it does. Now I can stream live tv outside where my previous router couldn't reach.
