With the 2-in-1 Orbi Tri-Band WiFi Cable Modem System replacing your existing cable modem and router, you will step up to an experience of ultra-fast mesh WiFi coverage for homes up to 4,000 square feet. For larger properties, adding Orbi Satellites to your system will expand coverage by an additional 2,000 square feet per satellite.
The Orbi Tri-Band WiFi Cable Modem System will work out of the box with Xfinity from Comcast XFINITY, Spectrum, Cox and others. Netgear expects the new modem router to pay for itself with the money you save by eliminating equipment leasing fees.
“We’re excited to be the first retail offering to combine the benefits of Orbi whole-home WiFi mesh networking with an embedded cable modem in a single, space-saving device,” said David Henry, senior vice president of Connected Home Products for NETGEAR. “With the Orbi Tri-Band WiFi Cable Modem System, you’ll benefit from incredibly fast cable downloads and blazing-fast WiFi for an uninterrupted data flow to more connected devices, everywhere in your home, plus tons of great Orbi features like voice commands and smart parental controls, which will be added to the offering soon.”
Key Features and Benefits
The Orbi Tri-Band WiFi Cable Modem System combines performance with style in a sleek, modern design. The four high-gain internal antennas in each Orbi router and satellite increase wireless range in hard-to-reach areas of your home.

Its Smart Connect Technology-intelligently chooses the best WiFi band for your devices to avoid interference and optimize network performance, while Beamforming+ improves speed and range for both 2.4 and 5GHz devices. You’ll enjoy Orbi features like guest WiFi network and four (4) Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports for connecting wired devices for even faster file transfers and reliable connections.
