Netgear Orbi Home WiFi System: AC2200 Tri-Band Home Network with Router & Satellite Extender for up to 4,000sqft of WiFi coverage (RBK40) Works with Amazon Alexa, save $ 120, now only $ 229.99 in a deal of the day promotion at Amazon.com. If you are looking to upgrade your wi-fi network, the Orbi system from Netgear is a winner! I have been using Orbi for awhile and it performs extremely well– fast with great coverage all through the house.
If you’re willing to spend $ 330, or even $ 4×0 for the R9000 at amazon for this router, I can assume you know what you’re looking at. Also, don’t buy it for the WiFI alone – it is just another AC2600, or ven less than that, but it is a flagship router with fancy but useless 802.11ad 😀
This router appears to be a feature-limited R9000 exclusively for Costco like the Netgear AC1450 was. The only obvious change from the R9000 to this R8900 is the lack of non-standard 256-QAM support for 2.4GHz 802.11n which reduces the maximum theoretical speed from 800Mbps to 600 Mbps.
Quill.com has the brand new Netgear Nighthawk X6S for only 254.99. I also got a 20 dollar coupon offer from them since I was a new customer. This router has been getting amazing reviews and is a pretty nice upgrade from the X6 which was a solid router.
