Orbi setup with Verizon


Orbi setup with Verizon

I just cut the cord with verizon and am using them for internet only. I went twith Youtube TV, Netflix and a Roku stick on all 5 of our TV sets. I have a verizon quantum gateway router and hooked up my Orbi RBR50 to it in a/p mode per the directions on the netgear community site. Currents speed is 75/75 Mbps. Verizon is willing to upgrade me for same price to 200 Mbps. I am told the quantum router can handle the speed and want to be sure the Orbi AC3000 tri band router system can as well. Apparently I have to use an ethernet cable from the verizon ONT box to hook into the verizon router in order to get the upgraded speed. I am told it can't be done through the coax cable. Before I go through all this trouble and expense (Verizon is charging $150 for ethernet hookup) I want to be sure I will still be able to run my wifi through the Orbi mesh tri band system. I am told I may  have to upgrade to the verizon fios g3100 router if my verizon quantum gateway doesn't work and again want to be sure that my orbi is compatible with it. Any help greatly appreciated. My house its 5500 square feet and i am hoping this will help my wifi to be seemless throughout the house.TV

Re: Orbi setup with Verizon

The Orbi RBR50 router will handle 200mb easily. Mine does. People report concerrns about getting their "full gigabit feed" through the Orbi, but 200mb is no strain at all.

Verizon should know if the quantum gateway will handle 200mb.


In essence, changing the Verizon feed that comes into the quantum router has no impact on the Orbi WiFi at all.

I love my Orbi.
