Considering purchasing the Orbi wifi system

Hi All,

 

I am looking at purchasing the NETGEAR Orbi High-Performance AC3000 Tri-Band Add-On Satellite (RBS50-100NAS). I would like to know more about the security features and ability to block ip adresses/websites.

 

Any other pros/cons are also welcome.

 

best regards,

You can refer to the manual here: http://www.downloads.netgear.com/files/GDC/RBK50/Orbi_UM_EN.pdf

 

I don't think you can block indivudal IP address at all--only domains.

Hey there,


I have RBK50 (1 router and 2 satellites), I recommend it. To be completely honest, install didn't go perfect the first time, system would show multiple wifi networks instead of 1, or 1 had to sync a satellite twice to get it hooked up but overall it's working great.

 

Some people seem to experience disconnections but I never had one.

 

I control my Orbi through the app on my iphone, you get the list of any device connected to your network and you can shut them off one by one if you want, pretty convenient.
