Update: Newegg has dropped the price on NETGEAR’s Orbi Wi-Fi 6 Router System to $549.99 shipped with code 3FNMDS36 at checkout. That saves you an extra $50 and marks a new low.
Amazon is currently offering the NETGEAR Orbi Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi 6 System (RBK852) for $599.99 shipped. Normally selling for $700, like you’ll currently find at Best Buy, today’s offer is good for a $100 discount and matches our previous mention for the lowest we’ve seen in months and second-best to date. One of the cornerstones of working from home is a capable Wi-Fi network, and NETGEAR’s latest Orbi system delivers that and then some. Pairing the perks of Wi-Fi 6 and mesh connectivity, this router 2-pack can dish out up to 5000-square feet of coverage thanks to the included router and satellite. You’re looking at upwards of 6Gb/s throughput, which works nicely with the router’s support for up to 60 devices. Rated 4.3/5 stars from over 7,000 customers and you can get a closer look at the feature set in our announcement coverage.
Update 3/20 @ 4:4 PM: Walmart is offering the TP-Link 802.11ac 4000Mbps Tri-band Wi-Fi Router for $79.99 shipped. Normally $200 at Best Buy, this is among the lowest pricing that we’ve tracked and is the best available. Rated 4.1/5 stars.
Complete your network upgrade by picking up some Ethernet cables to get your new networking gear setup. Monoprice’s Slimrun Cat6A cable is one of our favorite options, with a 5-pack starting under $9. I’ve wired most of my network setup together with these cables, and have found them to be quite reliable and easy to work with.
If you can live without Wi-Fi 6, we’re also still seeing a series of discounts on Google’s Nest Wifi routers with prices starting at $194. Or for something even more affordable, score TP-Link’s Deco M4 Mesh 802.11ac System at $139.
