1. Be careful, this is not their top of the line RBK50/AC3000
2. Orbis are notoriously flawed units with multiples issues like wireless disconnects, internet drops etc and lack of QOS control. I experienced this first hand with my RBK50 3-piece system.

While one or two problems are fixed with firmware update, the latter usually breaks something that worked. Netgear is more busy chasing resellers off marketplaces than fixing their flawed firmware problem.

Sounds like you have experience with this one?????? From all the shade you throwing at it you must have had a bad experience when you bought this and set it up?

Yes, me and tons of others unfortunate to buy this POS. I've had it for 2.5 years (or actually it's more expensive cousin, RBK50/AC300) it was nothing more than the trouble. Especially with multiple smart home devices that rely on being able to connect to the cloud whenever they feel like.

I've installed 4 different models of Orbi for myself and a few friends, RBK53, RBK23, RBK33, and RBK30 without issue on any of these. We have to remember that these are electronics and a certain percentage will have issues.

I could easily say " yes me and tons of others have bought this product and had no issues" but it's an anecdote, and I wouldn't honestly say to anybody that they'd have the same experience.

There are plenty of people on this site who reviewed these units already and have no issues and some that do. Same goes for Eero, Velops, Google WiFi etc.
