At the end of 2020, I reviewed the 4G Netgear Orbi LBR20, we were in some form of tiered lockdown, and both myself and my partner were working from home. During this review, our Virgin fibre went down for a full day, and the 4G failover of the LBR20 saved the day. Netgear has now…

The Netgear Orbi RBKE960 WiFi 6E mesh system was announced back in October and was the first mesh system on the market to implement a quad bands radio. The benefit of this is that you have one dedicated 5Ghz band for backhaul, then 2.4Ghz, 5Ghz and the new 6Ghz band used by WiFi 6E for…

Netgear has gone all out for their latest mesh WiFi 6 system. Featuring the new WiFi 6E standard, the mesh system utilizes three different frequencies, 2.4Ghz, 5Ghz and 6Ghz.

Netgear Orbi Pro Mini SXR30 Review – Affordable business WiFi 6 Dual-Band AX1800 mesh system

I previously reviewed the superb but extremely expensive Netgear Orbi Pro SXK80, which basically took the flagship consumer Orbi RBK852 hardware and upgraded it with Netgear Insight cloud management.

Netgear Orbi WiFi6 AX6000 Review – Is a mesh Wi-Fi 6 system worth £700? (RBK852)

With most flagship phones and new laptops using Wi-Fi 6, there is a growing demand for routers and mesh systems that can serve them. As seen on my router reviews, Wi-Fi 6 comes with a high early adopter tax, so then when you double up and get a mesh system, you end with the crazy-expensive…

Netgear Orbi Outdoor Satellite Review (RBS50Y)

One of the great things about Netgear Orbi (and other mesh wi-fi systems too) is the ability to expand the system to broaden the range. Unlike old Wi-Fi extenders you don’t suffer the same level of performance degradation with a Mesh network, so it is possible to expand the system to be as big as…
