If I have a strong password on my Orbi wifi network, 20 random characters, does a hacker have to get though that to get to my computers? Or is there a way around that?

Strong WiFi password is the first line of defense to prevent hacker from gaining access to your internal network.  The second line of defense is your computer password/firewall/encryption.  The last line of defense is you!  Hacker can gain access to your computer by means of fishing emails, click-bait, etc.,

Yeah - If possible, use auto-generated password by a browser/iPhone or some other security tool, which is far more complex and secured normal pass phrase.
