Netgear is a recognized brand globally, especially in PC world. The attractive and lucrative features of Netgear Kit are really accredited worldwide. It consists of wide range of technological expertise starting from the part of development to manufacturing since its emergence in San Jose, California, in the United States since 1996. Like throughout the whole world, Netgear has become much popular in Bangladesh too.
It is quite since long that Computer City Technologies Limited has been engaged as authorized distributor of Dell in Bangladesh along with the product line of Netgear products. Computer City eagerly offers the most updated models of Netgear products in the local market throughout Bangladesh to provide the people over here an opportunity to get introduced to this world class brand. From this perspective, Computer City has recently launched a model of Orbi RBK40 WiFi Mesh Networking Kit in our local market. The product is featured with the most upgraded technology offered with the excellence and stylish looks. Consumers’ expense will be rationalized with the features and technical capabilities that the product is possessed. You can have the details mentioned below:
Netgear Orbi RBK40 WiFi Mesh Networking Kit
The advanced features in the device are quite outstanding. The quality belongs to a standard grade without any doubt. There are many so called and less up to the mark routers in market. But, the Orbi RBK40 Wi-Fi system is the stripped down and more affordable version of the original Orbi RBK50 that came out last year. Its dedicated backhaul Wi-Fi band -- one that wirelessly links its two hardware units together -- has just half the speed of its older brother's.
This means the new system has slower Wi-Fi speed compared to the previous model or less coverage, depending on how you want to use it. However, since the RBK50 can be overkill for many homes, the new system actually strikes a balance for those living in a home of 4000 square feet or less, wanting to bring fast broadband speed to every corner. The RBK40 can still be a slightly better choice for those with a fast broadband connection.
Stripped-Down Dedicated Backhaul Band
Like all Orbi Wi-Fi systems, the RBK40 includes two hardware units. One of them is a router (model RBR40) that you connect to your broadband modem. The other is a satellite unit (model RBS40) to be placed some 40 feet away to wirelessly extend the Wi-Fi coverage. They're also all tri-band systems, meaning they have two 5GHz bands and one 2.4Ghz band.
Easy Setup, Full Feature, Sluggish Web Interface
Setting up the RBK40 is basically the same as that of the RBK50 since the two share the exact same process. You can either use the web interface or the Netgear Orbi mobile app, and both have a setup wizard that walks you through a few short steps. It takes just about 15 minutes to get the system up and running, including unboxing it.
Note that by default you don't need to register an account with Netgear nor does the system stay connected to Netgear. However, if you want to easily manage your home network even when you're out and about, you can opt for an optional Netgear account and use a different app called Netgear Genie. In this case, the system connects to Netgear at all time. Netgear says it's in the process of consolidating the apps but for now you'll need use multiple apps with the system. If you're comfortable with its web interface though, you can skip the apps completely.
The system's web interface is the same as that of most Netgear routers and offers the same set of features and settings. This means if you want to deep customize your home network -- something not possible with most other Wi-Fi systems -- you can with the Orbi. However, the Orbi doesn't have a built-in protection feature against online threats which is an increasingly popular feature that other systems, like the Amped Wireless Ally or the TP-Link Deco M5, have incorporated.
Also, the system's web interface is far from perfect, taking a long time - tens of seconds -- to transition from one section to another. Though this doesn't affect the initial setup process, it can be a pain if you want to change a lot of settings and features. Netgear told me it would improve this in the near future via firmware updates.
As expected, the RBK40's performance is excellent nonetheless. The device consists of a sustained Wi-FI speed of up to more than 410 Mbps when connected directly to the router unit and up to some 290 Mbps when connected to the satellite unit, which is placed 45 feet away. This means the system indeed doesn't have signal loss, just some signal degradation caused by the the distance between the two units.
In term of coverage, the system could easily cover some 4000 square feet with a sustained Wi-Fi speed of more than 100Mbps. You can always increase the distance between the two units to have a larger coverage but then the Wi-Fi speed will be reduced. Keep in mind that the system already has been tested in an environment with a lot of other Wi-Fi networks which adversely affected the Orbi's performance. Generally with Wi-Fi, your mileage varies depending on where you are.
