Netgear Orbi Voice Smart Speaker

Will/Can the Netgear Orbi Voice Smart Speaker work with my Orbi RBK 750 (WIFi 6) router?

Please post about this over in the Orbi AX forum:

https://community.netgear.com/t5/Orbi-AX/bd-p/en-home-orbi-ax

 

FYI, Orbi AC satellites are not currently wirelessly compatible with Orbi AX. You can ethernet connect them to the Orbi AX system in that configuration at this time. 

 

Good Luck. 

My Setup (Cable 1Gbps/50Mbps)>CAX80 v2.1.2.1(LAG Disabled)>RBK853 v4.6.3.16(AP) & RBK752 v4.6.5.14

Re: Netgear Orbi Voice Smart Speaker

The Netgear product page for the RBS40V "Orbi Smart Speaker" claims there are two models:

one works "only with Orbi" and the other "works with any router".

https://www.netgear.com/orbi/rbs40v.aspx 

 

@FURRYe38is correct that people who have already purchased and installed the AX product are more likely to have personal experience to report.  There is also a community forum specifically for the Orbi Voice product:

https://community.netgear.com/t5/Orbi-Voice-WiFi-Meets-HiFI/bd-p/en-home-orbi-voice 

 

The Product Data Sheet for the "Orbi" version is (typically) unhelpful.  On page 3, "What do I need for Orbi to work?", the answer is "Orbi wireless router."  No mention of original Orbi, Orbi Pro, or "AX".

I love my Orbi.
