In this Netgear Orbi review video Paul sets up and tests the Netgear Orbi Whole Home WiFi mesh system (RBK53) using a wired ethernet backhaul. It’s a great system for eliminating WiFi deadspots in your house and making sure you have good, strong and super-fast WiFi signal everywhere in your house.

The Orbi is a tri-band system meaning there’s a dedicated 5GHz wireless backhaul connection between router and satellite(s), but you can also connect Orbi satellite with ethernet – which is what we do in this video.

Don’t forget to enter the giveaway to win a Netgear Orbi! Details below…

— Netgear Orbi Setup —
We set up the RBK53 kit, which contains the AC3000 units (AC2200 also available), with a hardwired ethernet backhaul in a house with three floors.

— Netgear Orbi Review —
We saw a huge WiFi speed improvement throughout the house – up to 523% faster in our tests and by our maths!
