It’s likely that you have a lot of tech around the home, and that can be frustrating for a lot of people. In particular, this is a huge problem when your home networking has not been set up correctly, or you don’t have the gear to properly fill those WiFi dead zones.
Netgear has today announced a new product that will allow you to revive those WiFi dead zones and do so in an easy to use and easy to set up manner.
This WiFi system has been named Orbi, which can cover up to 4,000 square feet according to Netgear, and by using a tri-band mesh system, it dedicates one channel to extending the internet from the router to the satellite routers in order to make sure those dead zones are properly filled.
This is whilst keeping two other bands for your devices.
But that’s not all, the Orbi system has also been designed to be easy to set up through a browser-based installation program that can be accessed through your phone or computer. The routers will show you the best possible set up for extending your internet, showing different colours as according to the best range.
Orbi will also support 802.11ac WiFi for speeds of up to 3GBps, with each router and satellite featuring a total of four Gigabit Ethernet ports and a USB 2.0 port.
The entire set up will also support parental controls and a range of other advanced features that have been borrowed from Netgear’s Nighthawk range.
The Orbi will be released inOctober from major retailers for around £349.99 in the UK.
