Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. If you’re still stuck with a WiFi router that doesn’t cover the whole household…or maybe even the patio in the yard….there are some better choices on the market these days. Netgear’s Orbi line of WiFi systems…is among those using what is called mesh networking. Multiple devices in different areas of the home that work together to give you the coverage you need. And Netgear uses a dedicated wireless channel for that communication. Why? Product manager Amit Rele…
“Essentially what it’s doing is having three different radios. And one of those bands is dedicated to bringing the really fast speeds to where you need it to be.”
So you can get full speed upstairs or downstairs when you’re watching those streaming videos. Does it really work? In a word, yes. A two unit pack is priced at about 350 dollars.
