Plastic sleeve that comes installed on new Orbi units

About the only thing that plastic sleeve is good for, is so when you pick up the unit, the sleeve slips off and the unit goes crashing to the floor.

And you didn't remove the sleeve after you un-boxed it?

And why would I remove it?  Later maybe, but not until I had dropped each unit a couple of times, and figured out how dumb that sleeve was

I'm pretty sure that sleeve was for shipping only...

The only purpose it serves is so they could same a dime by using the same housing for all their units, without having to screen print which was the router and which was the satellite.  It's just like why they don't have an 800 trouble number..

And one could pick up the units by the lower portion of the device or on the side too....

This thread is funny and it made me laugh.

 

With all the frustration and seriousness on here, it's nice to know we all have something important to complain about!  ;-)
