Costco Orbi

Costco has a few Orbis. Besides the range is the speed going to be the same?

Re: Costco Orbi

There are some differences in the wireless backhaul speeds between the models:

Re: Costco Orbi

It might be worth searching for "Costco" around here.

 

Some people have found that they owned customised Orbi devices that they could not control or update. These came from an ISP, but I would not want to risk being stranded.

Just another user.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V

Re: Costco Orbi

Most of the routers sold at Costco are just retail units and are controllable and upgradable. The ones the do some from ISPs though, those are some to review first before you consider buying from them. Espeically Verizon.
