Satellite Considerations

Having the right number of satellites is essential for getting great coverage across your entire property. Here are a few things to consider.

Is coverage just for the home, or does it need to extend to outdoor areas and detached buildings? Placing Orbi near doors or windows can improve outdoor coverage.
What does your home look like from a birds-eye view? An L or U-shaped home may need additional satellites to extend WiFi around corners to every part of the home.
Ensure router and satellites are placed within range of one another so units can talk to each other. The Orbi App will help you ensure all satellites are within range.
Orbi routers and satellites have multiple ethernet ports, giving you wired connections in places where you need them, like in home offices and media rooms.
Thicker materials like brick and concrete can weaken WiFi signals. Consider additional satellites or alternative placement options for the strongest WiFi coverage.

Never sacrifice speed

NETGEAR-invented Tri-band technology with a Dedicated Backhaul “express lane” for WiFi to travel directly between router and satellites means you get maximum, unimpeded whole-home WiFi speed that stays fast even with 100 devices connected at the same time.

Bigger means better coverage
