Differences between Orbi routers

Would anyone be a ble to tell me the exact differences between the Orbi router model RBR40 and model RBR20? I'm trying to decide about the Orbi WiFi System (RBK20W) AC2200 and model Orbi WiFi System (RBK30) AC2200 and the only difference that I can notice between both is the router model that comes with each. For what I read, there are only differences in the RAM of the devices, but I want to be sure.

 

Thanks!

You can see the differences here:

One difference is that the RBR20 only has one LAN port.

I'm also interested and confused about the differences.  The WikiDevi pages linked do not contain any data.  On the spec page, it appears the RBR20 has multiple backhauls, or is that just a repeat of the main antennas?

Check specs here:

All Home Orbi systems support wired back haul for ethernet connected satellites.

Recommend using non managed switches with Orbi systems if needed.

Hi PaPaTheGMan, 

 

Please click this link https://www.netgear.com/orbi/ and look for the "Find your Orbi" section. It will help you find the system that suits your need (distance, number of devices and speed).
