Introducing two new feature-rich 10 Gig Routers: Orbi RBR860S Router with WiFi 6 and the Orbi RBRE960 Router with WiFi 6E

New Multi-Gig Routers

While we continue to live and work in a hybrid-remote world, the need for the best WiFi technology at home is more imperative than ever. As Internet Service Providers enable faster multi-gig internet speeds of up to 10Gbps, consumers who want to take advantage of new networking capabilities and harness the next generation of WiFi need a powerful multi-gig router. To meet these needs, we are now offering two new standalone Orbi routers that join NETGEAR’s flagship line of Orbi mesh systems: Orbi RBR860S and RBRE960.

Powerful Routers for Apartments and Small Homes or Upgrade to Mesh

Orbi routers are ideal for those living in smaller homes or apartments who want the superior WiFi performance of Orbi as well as the flexibility to easily expand to a mesh system as their needs change. Satellites can be added to these routers at the click of a button to spread the network outside, to a new addition, to a newly converted attic office or even to a new, larger home. For those immediately seeking a mesh system, both 10Gb routers are also available as part of Orbi’s 800 series (RBK863S) and 900 series (RBKE963) mesh systems, which each include one router and two satellites.
