The NETGEAR Orbi WiFi 6 Mesh Router system is ideal for homes 2,500 sq. ft. or larger. The AX4200 series comes in different packages, consisting of 1 to 3 RBS750 mesh extenders, and 1 RBR750 WiFi router. The bigger the package, the more you save.
This Orbi series features the latest in-home WiFi, WiFi-6 (a.k.a. 802.11AX or Wireless AX). With a max wireless speed of 4,200 Mbps, this is the perfect solution for homes that have multiple users or devices.
Below, we break down the different packages and what you can expect to pay per each. Before we do though, you should also know that this system can be used with any cable modem, fiber, or DSL modem.
NETGEAR Orbi WiFi 6 Mesh Router RBR750
The Orbi RBR750 router alone is capable of covering up to 2,500 sq. ft. and up to 40 devices. On the back panel, there are three Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports which are ideal for data-intense devices like game consoles. The RBR750 has a super powerful quad-core 1.4GHz processor, in layman’s terms, it is super fast at processing data, both wirelessly and through wired connections. The RBR750 alone is only available on eBay. However, see below for a package deal with the RBR750 and a satellite extender. For the router only you can expect to pay $180 – $200.
NETGEAR Orbi RBK752 (RBR750 + RBS750) 2 Pack
Now we are on to review the Orbi RBK752 combination. This package contains (1) RBR750 WiFi router introduced earlier and (1) RBS750 satellite extender. Together, these two Orbi devices will cover up to 5,000 sq. ft. Setting the satellite extender opposite of the router within the house, ensure absolute coverage between devices. Buying the two together really saves you money if you can use the extender. Purchasing separately, the combined cost is approximately $470. Buy them together and the RBK752 cost is only $350.
NETGEAR Orbi RBK753 / RBK753S Mesh System – 3 Pack
If you have been following, you probably guessed it, the RBK753 is just simply the Orbi AX4200 router with 2 satellite extenders. Therefore, with this package, you will get (1) RBR750 router and (2) RBS750 satellites. Again, placing them apart to create an even bigger blanket of WiFi and coverage up to 7,500 sq. ft.
The RBK753, which has been the biggest selling package, is now also available with 1 year of NETGEAR Armor powered by Bitdefender. This covers all devices connected to your network against threats and viruses. This combination has a NETGEAR part # of RBK753S.
The RBK753 with two satellites all purchased alone has an estimated cost of $760. All together under the deal as part number RBK753, the cost is about $445.
NETGEAR Orbi RBK754 Mesh Routers
As simple as that, we come to the RBK754. This package contains (1) a router and (3) satellite extenders. All together this package comes to a total of coverage of 10,000 sq. ft. The RBK754 ensures not even one dead zone. If bought individually, the router & satellites would be around $1050. And we found an extraordinary deal on NETGEAR. The RBK754 is currently on sale for $649.99 + free shipping + get 10% off when you first sign up for a coupon in exchange for your email address. That brings the total cost to $585, just $35 over the cost of the RBK753.
NETGEAR CBR750 / CBK752 Cable Modem + Router
Also in the Orbi AX4200 mesh router series is the CBR750. This particular model has a built-in DOCSIS 3.1 cable modem that supports multi-gig cable internet services.
