Orbi dropouts caused me to return the product to Best Buy!
I've never, ever been so upset with a product in my entire life! I am an IT guy and know the networking ins & outs - and KNEW basically the Orbi was equivalent to a router with built-in range extenders. I've used Netgear switches and routers in the past and knew to go with them for this type of product to replace an Apple Airport Extreme -> cable modem...with 2 ethernet wired Airport Extremes in other parts of the house set in AP mode and wired back to the main Airport Extreme/cable modem set as DHCP/Router.
How can it be that the Orbi is worse than a seven year old Airport Extreme? I don't know...but it is! Dropouts (internet - not wifi) ... I could still access local shares, bonjour, etc... but anything that required the internet...nope! got so bad it was happening every morning!
Sorry, Netgear! Not ready for prime-time! Back to Best Buy for you!
