Netgear's plan to solve awful Wi-Fi is a second router
For as long as there have been Wi-Fi routers, setting up Wi-Fi has been pretty much the same. You buy a router at the store, plug it into your modem, and that's it. Wi-Fi may even be built into your modem in the first place. That's Netgear, which is introducing a multi-unit router called Orbi. Netgear likes to call Orbi a "Wi-Fi system," rather than a router, because it's technically a combination of router, range extender, and some software that makes it all work seamlessly together. Whatever you call it, the end result is a single Wi-Fi network that's supposed to be capable of blanketing 4,000 square feet of space and providing a strong and fast Wi-Fi signal to every corner of it.
