NetGear’s Orbi RBK50 For Fast Home WiFi “Everywhere”

0

If you’re online at home a lot — you either work from home or your family is all connected at the same time — the useful Orbi RBK50 device from NetGear provides really fast WiFi everywhere.

Acting as a single WiFi network for your home, you can use your laptop or other smart device from your back garden, front patio or in the basement. Tired of dead zones and slow load times? Orbi RBK50 helps you get the boost you need.

The Orbi RBK50

Not only is it fast and performs well, but it has a beautiful elegant design,  a great selling point, at least for me. So many tech gadgets seem to be designed by men for men, and aren’t the most elegant looking things on the planet. In other words, who wants to put a square black box in their home.

The Orbi WifiNetwork is both stylish and productive. The set up is fairly easy and you can label your network with one single WiFi name, avoiding confusion and helps keep things streamlined.

Given it’s reach, this handy device is also useful for small businesses. The RBK50 covers up to 5,000 square feet with high performance AC3000 WiFi.

It is noted to be the first out there with Tri-band WiFi, which means fast connectivity even with additional devices on the network. Again, ideal for a small business, family or if there are many of you living in one building or home.

NetGear’s Orbi WiFi System comes with an Orbi WiFi Router and Satellite and replaces your home router and extenders. The other nice thing about it is that it also works with existing Service Provider equipment, making it easy and seamless to set up out of the box.

NetGear Orbi App

They also have an app with an intuitive dashboard, which you can use to install & personalize your Orbi Home WiFi System. They offer a fingerprint login for iOS devices for added security and it’s available both on the App Store and Google Play.  

Here, you can manage WiFi settings, share network credentials, review the list of connected devices to the network (geeks will love this), pause device access to the Internet (great for small businesses), and even performs a speed test so you can see the performance in real time. You can also set up separate Internet access for guests if you wish to further enhance your security.

Ethernet Ports

Worried about EMF stress or simply want the added power, performance and stability of a wired connection, then simply connect to your Orbi WiFi system using the 4 Ethernet ports on the Orbi desktopSatellite, which we think is an important and quite frankly, a necessary feature.

Voice Commands

The Orbi unit also works with Amazon Echo/Alexa so you can control your home network using voice commands. You simply enable remote access on your router with NETGEAR Genie and then enable NetGear kill on the Alexa app and you’re ready to start controlling your router using voice commands.

You can even ask NetGear to turn on the guest wifi if you wish. How cool is that?
