ORBI RBK 753 Purchase


ORBI RBK 753 Purchase

My existing installation is Virgin Router operating as Modem only into a Nighthawk R7000 Router.   I have additional ICU's or WAC,


I have made the Ordbi purchase to replave the Nighthawk Router.


Should I disconnect the Nighthawk completely before I install the ORBI system.


I feel the installation from Orbi App is puching me to install alongdie to learn about other devices?


Confused and need help please?

I would disconnect the nighthawk entirely for setup. 

Its much higher performing than the R7000 and there's nothing like a fresh setup/rebuild of the network. 🙂 


You could always connect the r7000 back later (in access point mode) if you wanted it for backup or for using for IoT devices.
