Description

Toned Down Version Of Netgears RBK852
The Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 RBK852 may be one of the fastest home WiFi Mesh systems in existence but they weren't exactly flying off the shelves because of the $600 price tag. Netgear recognized this and removed some of the excess overkill from its flagship model and toned things down a bit with the RBK752. The RBK752 has slightly less power than it's big brother but it's still extremely fast and offers great range. It has more than enough power to cover a 5,000 sq. ft. home.

NETGEAR Orbi Whole Home Tri-Band Mesh WiFi 6 System (RBK752) – Router with 1 Satellite Extender | Coverage up to 5,000 sq. ft. and 40+ Devices | Mesh AX4200 WiFi 6 (Up to 4.2Gbps)

The Netgear Orbi RBK752 is a powerful mesh router that is perfect for large homes or multi-floor residences. With its ability to connect up to 64 devices, this router is perfect for families that need to stay connected. Additionally, the Orbi RBK752 has a Gigabit Ethernet port and an 802.11ac Wi-Fi connection, which makes it ideal for streaming content and gaming.

Like the RBK852 the RBK752 is an AX router. This means it supports both 802.11AC and 802.11AX. 802.11AX is a much faster protocol and in time may replace 802.11AC in much the same way 802.11AC replaced 802.11N.

Features

The Netgear Orbi RBK752 pumps out 600Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 1200Mbps on the 1st 5GHz band. The third band is the “backhaul” band and is dedicated to communication between the nodes. It has twice as many radios (4) and puts out 2400Mbps. This “backhaul band” is used to free up bandwidth to be used for communication with devices on the other 2 bands.

The mobile app provides an easy-to-understand map of all your network devices and their settings. You can easily change basic settings like your network name and password and change channels on both bands. More advanced features like port forwarding are also easily accessible. Netgear Armor by Bitdefender is also available on a subscription basis.

The Netgear Orbi also supports Ethernet Backhaul. This means you can use an Ethernet connection to replace the 3rd band’s WiFi connection between the router and satellite. This frees up even more bandwidth (2400Mbps) for your devices.

Netgear Orbi RBK752 Performance

Even with fewer antennas, the Orbi RBK752 close proximity tests and 30-foot distance tests were only slightly slower than the RBK852. The main drawback is not so much speed and range but the number of devices you can connect before experiencing lag. This means the choice between these two Orbi WiFi 6 systems isn’t so much about the size of your home as much as the number of devices you own.

Installation

As with most Mesh Systems, the Netgear Orbi RBK752’s setup routine is simple and straightforward. It’s simple as plugging the router and satellite units in, downloading the Orbi mobile app, scanning the QR code found at the base of the device, and following the wizard that follows. The wizard will also walk you through updating the existing firmware. This ensures you’re getting all the latest features and fixes for your new system The entire setup can be completed by anyone with a minor understanding of technology in under 15 minutes.

For some simple is too simple. The mobile phone app gets you up and running but for more advanced options the Orbi does offer a web interface to configure things like your DHCP range and reservations and port forwarding. Sorry no QOS or Parental Controls.

Conclusion

While the Netgear Orbi RBK752 offers uncommon speed, range, and ease of use some of the most common features people expect to find in such highly-priced systems such as QoS and Parental controls are curiously missing. Maybe Netgears thinking is when you’re pushing this much power QoS isn’t needed. Parental controls would be nice though.
