Step 1: download the app to your phone

Step 2: Join the base station to the radio
Restart your provider’s modem. This can be done by removing the connector from the socket for 30 seconds. The last step is to plug the power cord into the Orbi base station and the adapter into the socket.
Step 3: Put the other satellites into place
There are 2 or 3 stations in the Multi-room WiFi systems. The app can help figure out where these stations should be put. You shouldn’t put them more than two rooms apart, if possible. This way, you can make sure that your connection to the other stations stays strong. Put the plug into the socket to turn on the Orbi satellites. Then you need to press the black button on the back.
Step 4: Link your Orbi system up
To finish setting up your Orbi, connect to its WiFi network. On the back of the base station, you can find the name and the password. Find out how to connect to a WiFi network by reading the device’s manual. Made a connection? The app will move on to the next step on its own.
Step 5: Make sure your Orbi is hooked up
Now, the Orbi checks its connection to the internet on its own. The base station then contains the connections with the satellites you’ve set up. The Orbi Satellite blue light that flashes on top of the base stations shows this. After that, does the light stay blue? All of the stations are set up right. Will it always be purple? The connection between the base station and your satellite is too weak in that case. Fixing this is as easy as moving the satellite closer to the base station.
Step 6: Use the app to set up the base station
Give the app a user name and a password. You use these to sign in and change how your Orbi router setup works. Choose a strong password so no one else can get to these settings. Then, use the app to give your new WiFi network a name that isn’t used by anyone else. You should also give your wireless network a password that is safe but easy to remember. Click “Next,” then connect to the network you just made.
Step 7: Connect your Orbi system to your Netgear account
Your Netgear account will now be asked when you open the Orbi app. If you don’t already have an account, you can now make one through the app. So, your Orbi’s settings are saved, and you can always get them back if you need to. You can also use this method to manage your Multi-room WiFi system from afar. This is helpful if your child complains that the WiFi doesn’t work when you’re not at home.
