The Netgear Orbi AC2200 Tri-Band RBK30 system gives you consistent speeds of up to 100 Mbps across an area of 3,500 square feet - the perfect range for smaller two-story homes and single-story homes who are struggling with poor connection speeds. The satellite device in this set simply plugs into an electrical outlet - there's no need for additional network cables. A special feature is the dedicated channel (tri-band) used to communicate between the router and wall plug. This allows you to get similarly quick connection speeds on both your router and satellite devices, giving you top connection speeds throughout your entire home.

All the advantages of the Orbi AC2200 - Tri-Band Wi-Fi System (RBK30) at a glance:

  • Dual-band connection (2.4 GHz + 5 GHz)
  • Convenient plug in Wi-Fi repeater
  • Advanced parental controls
  • Single Wi-Fi system name
  • Alexa and Google Assistant compatible
  • No account creation required
  • Web & mobile app available

We at tink were blown away by the amount of groundbreaking technology that the Netgear Orbi AC2200 has been equipped with. A dedicated backhaul connection gives you top connection speeds on both your router and wall-plug device, while four-high performance internal antennas gives you up to 1500 sq. ft. of range on each network component. While conventional Wi-Fi systems are only capable of communicating with a single device (i.e. your smartphone) at any given time, MU-MIMO capability allows the Orbi system to communicate with all devices on your network simultaneously. You can thus get a quick connection on all devices.

Product Information

  • The Orbi mobile app: While most internet routers can only be operated and adjusted using a web interface, the Orbi system comes with a mobile app. Here you can manage Wi-Fi settings, see a list of connected devices, set up a guest network and more.
  • Single network name: Some repeater systems require you to set up a separate network, which can cause the connection to drop suddenly when you move throughout your home. The Orbi system gives you a single network name, both more convenient and practical.
  • Google and Alexa compatible: For that extra bit of future feel, the Orbi satellite system can be used with both the Google and Amazon Alexa voice assistants. You can ask them to reset your Wi-Fi system in the event of an outage, or have them activate your guest network when you have friends over.
  • Doesn't get in the way: Netgear has designed the wall plug to be as unobtrusive as possible, with the general shape of the satellite device being scaled so as not to block other wall outlets around it.
  • Disney Circle: Netgear has collaborated with Disney to create advanced parental controls for your home Wi-Fi network. The default version lets you create individual profiles for your kids and filter specific websites for particular users. A subscription package unlocks more advanced features like scheduling a bedtime for each user.

The Netgear Orbi AC2200 - Tri-Band Wi-Fi System (RBK30) in action



How exactly are the Orbi systems different from traditional Wi-Fi systems?

Although Orbi's Wi-Fi systems function on the same principle as classic router-expander systems, they have a few key features which set them apart:

  • A traditional router simply directs traffic between your device and the website it's trying to access (doing so primarily on two bands, 2.4 GHz, and 5 GHz). Orbi's systems make use of a third dedicated backhaul channel (known as tri-band). This channel is only used to communicate between router and satellite device (extender), ensuring that data is transferred speedily between both devices. This means that when you try to access the internet through your repeater device, this request is sent quickly to your router.
  • Orbi's systems have a single network name, while traditional repeater systems usually require that you set up a second network in your home (under a separate name). A single network name means you won't be switching between networks as you move throughout your home, which can lead to buffering and long load times.
  • You can place the Satellite device between 30 and 60 feet away from the router device and still expect a strong connection. With traditional repeater devices, you usually have to place the second satellite device within visual distance of your router.


Which Orbi system is right for my home

Don't feel that the RBK30 is right for your home? We have multiple Orbi systems for you to choose from. Read below to see which one is the best for you:

  • The AC3000 (RBK50) is most advanced Wi-Fi system available, with a tri-band channel with double the power of the AC2200 series. This gives you even quicker connection speeds on your satellite device. It comes with a router and a satellite device, covering a total area of up to 5000 square feet. It's ideal for mid-sized houses with 2 stories or more.
  • The AC2200 (RBK40) is the bigger brother of the RBK30 device, covering a total of 4000 square feet in your home with quick Wi-Fi coverage. Its satellite device comes with additional Ethernet ports, allowing you to connect devices directly into the satellite for quicker connection speeds.
  • The AC2200 (RBK43) has the same features as the RBK40 system but comes with an additional satellite device. This expands the total range of your Orbi system up to 6000 square feet, making it ideal for homes with three stories or with adjacent buildings like garages and guesthouses.

FAQs

What should I do if my Orbi router can't find my Orbi satellite?

If the LED on your Satellite is lighting up magenta, this means that your satellite is unable to connect to the router. To resolve this, try the following: The first thing you should try is to simply move the router closer to the satellite. This should fix this problem in the vast majority of cases. If you're still having this problem, try syncing the devices with each other. To do so, simply press the 'Sync' buttons on the back of both satellite and router.

Can I simply use an Orbi satellite device with my existing router?

In order for the Orbi system to function properly, you must use the router and satellite device together.

How far should I place my Orbi satellite from my Orbi router?

It's recommended that you place the satellite a minimum of 30 feet and a maximum of 70 feet away from the router.
