RBK23 vs. RBK53

Hi there!

As Black friday is here, I wonder about buying RBK23 ac2200 or RBK53 AC3000.
Have a house with 2 floors.
Total of 150 square meters.
The house is all concrete built.

Just think which model is best for me?
I preffer to add money for better antennas but don't know if it gonna matter.
Model: RBK22| Orbi AC2200 Tri-band WiFi System, RBK53| Orbi Router + 2 Satellites Orbi WiFi System

For 150 square meters and two floors the RBK23 should be more than enough.

Though, I would go for RBK 50 (one router and only one satellite) instead if I will choose. I think that the 50 range has more poerful antennas and thus has better coverage and a backhaul that feels more stable.

Re: RBK23 vs. RBK53

I ended up ordering the RBK50 just in case, then I see your reply. 

Thank you Smiley Happy 

 

I have 1GB FTTH, would router mode makes the most of my data? 

The one sat will be wirelessly synced to the router unit. 

Do you know which speed would I get in 1GB connection, wired and wireless? 

 

Had a TP Link Deco M5 that was so big in the terms of wired speedtest. 600-800MBps max in router mode, in AP mode was better.

The idea is to get rid of ISPs router for better routing and performance. 

 

An estimation obviously. 

 

Thanks once again Smiley Happy

Ideally you should get close to 900 Mbps on wired devices, but there are many factors that could impact this.

For wireless devices you should expect something in the range of 500 Mbps. Orbi has 2x2 wifi fronthaul with a maximum link rate of 867 Mbps (in the 5GHz band). Due to the wifi link overhead net throughput will typically be 50% - 65% of the maximum link rate, so I think you will be good if you can get 500-570 Mbps

I guess this was a wired link, right?

Re: RBK23 vs. RBK53

First, if it would be as close to 940M, I would be the happiest.
Get that now with my current oldy ASUS.

About wifi, 500-570 is a BLAST for me.

About Deco, the link was wireless.
Actually, that is the reason why I turned to Mesh, because no normal way to get CAT6/7 to my second floor, and wanted something that would work in wireless link best way possible.
So I sold my DECO and bought RBK50 that sounds like a blast and your testimony here justified rumors.

Thanks Smiley Happy
