Personalizing Home WiFi Performance
With mesh networks, the main access point router and satellite routers act as one synchronized unit. You can even use the same password for the entire WiFi network system to keep things simple as you move from one zone to another. More satellites mean better coverage, and NETGEAR Orbi allows you to add additional satellites to meet your WiFi needs, whether you live in a small apartment or a sprawling mansion. The NETGEAR Orbi 970 Series WiFi 7 Mesh system and Orbi 960 Series Quad-Band WiFi 6E Mesh System are great examples worth considering for larger homes. Compare Orbi Systems.
When setting up your mesh network, take a little time to experiment with satellite positioning to ensure you achieve the best possible network performance. Once you have established a mesh layout that works for your household, you can permanently position the satellite nodes using your Orbi wall mount holder kits. This will free up space on tables and shelves, and help you avoid knocking or damaging the satellites. Wall-mounted Orbi mesh nodes are an attractive way to showcase your personal style.
Why Add More Satellites To The Network?
If you live solo in a small studio apartment and only connect to the internet with one laptop and a cell phone, a single high-performance router will be enough to satisfy your needs. However, if yours is a growing household where everyone needs their own space for work, school, and entertainment, a whole-home mesh WiFi system will be required at some point. Here are some immediate advantages of whole home mesh WiFi.
Improved Network Coverage: With more mesh satellites, you can cover greater distances to connect to devices without the need to run cables. Each additional Orbi satellite can cover one or two rooms, so everyone under your roof can have their own space for conferencing, streaming, gaming, education, or creative pursuits. By strategic satellite placement, you can eliminate WiFi dead spots caused by brick walls and complex home layouts and even enjoy WiFi outdoors by the pool.
More Available Ethernet Ports: Another great reason to have additional Orbi satellite nodes permanently installed is to have more Ethernet adapter ports available for dedicated device connections. The latest Orbi satellites include dedicated Ethernet ports for plugging in your favorite devices. The powerful satellite antennas are then free to connect additional devices and smart home WiFi-enabled applications such as security cameras, garage doors, Amazon Alexa sound systems, and a whole lot more.
Avoid Using WiFi Repeaters or Extenders: NETGEAR Orbi mesh systems are an attractive and tidy way to provide whole-home WiFi, without the need to run cables in the ceiling, under the floor, or along the walls of your home. There is no need for additional WiFi repeaters or extenders when using Orbi mesh. The future is now with Orbi mesh systems designed for contemporary homes and modern lifestyles.
