You’ll love how far the Orbi router can perform in your home. It’s also a breeze to install thanks to the setup app. Thanks to its tri-band power and six internal antennas, you’ll get powerful connectivity wherever you are. 


  • Fast throughput speed
  • Quality build
  • MU-MIMO capable
  • Choose app or browser set-up
  • Consistent firmware updates to continue the improvement process

This is an outstanding router choice, as it can perform higher on its own than other systems with multiple nodes. It’s stylish enough to blend into your home and won’t break the bank, making it our top choice for a wireless modem in 2020.
