Thoughts about Costco's RB53 for $300? I have a nighthawk R7800 and it's serving me well. I'd like more range though.

But I'm not sure the it's worth the "upgrade." Since AC 2600 vs AC3000.

I'm most likely going to wait for AX or WiFi6 to upgrade.
If you have no dieing need for it, which it sounds like you dont, I would wait for wave 2 AX gear.

I have 600Mbps speed tier with comcast. What is max wireless speed one would get on laptop using this mesh system?

The main difference is the RBK23 satellites have 2 Lan ports for wired connections. If you have no use for these, go with the RBK33.

This is correct, I have the RBK33 which have wall plug in satellites without ethernet ports. The satellites with this model has 2 ports and it appear to provide an additional 1000sq ft of coverage, according to the product description. I purchased back in Feb on a lightning deal plus $40 coupon for about $168 after tax. Ended up having to purchase a separate extender with ethernet ports to hardwire in my security system. Would recommend this over the 33 as you never know when you'd want/need those ports.

I was just trying to eliminate a dead zone in my house (kid's bedroom) and had good luck with the Tenda MW3 [amazon.com] for $50. Might be an option for those that don't mind dual band or Gigabit speeds.

It depends on your home. I have a 3000 sq/ft home. I NEEDED a wifi mesh system not to mention the various home automation devices I have through alexa as well. Though you could use zwave, but I tried it and frankly it's off putting compared to how easy alexa is (and cheap).

I have roughly 30-40 devices in my home. The nighthawk has a max of 45 devices. I'd imagine once you get close to 30 you may expereince a slow down whereas a mesh system does not .

Warning to those who have IOT devices that only run on 2.4ghz band. It is a pain in the ass to connect them to this mesh system. Orbi combines the 2.4ghz and 5ghz bands into a single ssid with no way to separate them.

Theoretically, 866 Mbps, but in reality 400-600 Mbps. I have 1 Gig service from Xfinity, and I just did a speed test on my phone showing 486 Mbps about 20 feet from the router..

I have 3 veelops (one tro band and two dual) from Walmart Black Friday combo last year that keeps dropping nodes - would this be an upgrade?
Have you updated firmware? My issues were fixed with the last update

You have to disable the 5ghz band until you finish connecting all your devices and then re-enable it. So far its worked but Ive only had the setup for 1 day. No idea if there is a power outage or if your router has to reboot, the setting will stick. I will likely end up attaching an access point that I will use for all my 2.4ghz IOT devices to save myself the headache.

I use the biz version of this and the regular, home version. Both products work great. Orbis got off to a rocky start, but subsequent firmware updates have made the brand reliable imo

I used the wall plug version in the past and ended up returning. They just didn't work well.
