Just purchased an orbi mesh system and looking to setting it up using the orbi itself as the router and doing away with the spark supplied one.
Is there info someone could direct me to in order to setup the orbi router up for spark UFB?
Or alternatively has anyone done similar and can tell me how?
Thanks

Thanks for the link, that shows the settings but how do I access those settings on the router itself?

Loismustdye: Thanks for the link, that shows the settings but how do I access those settings on the router itself?

 

Once connected to wifi via the Orbi - Open a browser and browse to orbilogin.com or orbilogin.net.
Log in with credentials and that should provide you with the same screens as the original link i provided. 

 

If those URL's don't work see - https://kb.netgear.com/31142/Why-can-t-I-access-orbilogin-com-or-orbilogin-net

Yep. Set up 2 Orbi units today.
Use those instructions and should go swimmingly.

Are you on 1Gbps? I could never get our Orbi to hit the 900+Mbps speeds, typically 700Mbps max. 

 

I've reverted to using the Orbi in AP mode and its great at that. I haven't tried with the latest firmware, but no indication that it sorts the throughput issue.
