NETGEAR expands Wi-Fi 7 lineup with Orbi 770 Tri-band Mesh System and Nighthawk RS300 Router

NETGEAR is stepping up its home networking game with the launch of the Orbi 770 Tri-band Mesh System and Nighthawk RS300 Router, expanding its Wi-Fi 7 lineup. These new additions promise top-notch performance and security without breaking the bank.

Wi-Fi 7 is here to shake things up, offering speeds that are 2.4 times faster than Wi-Fi 6. This means you get low latency and better handling of interference, perfect for 4K/8K streaming, video calls, and gaming. With more AR/VR headsets and AI platforms like CoPilot+ popping up, the demand for faster and more reliable internet is higher than ever.

David Henry, president and GM of Connected Home Products and Services at NETGEAR, says, “Our newest Wi-Fi 7 additions, Orbi 770 and Nighthawk RS300, deliver connectivity benefits to a wider audience, helping them experience unprecedented speed and performance with the strongest possible security available today.”

The Orbi 770 Series offers blazing speeds up to 11Gbps and can handle up to 100 devices across 8,000 square feet with a 3-pack system. It uses Multi-Link Operation to combine the 5GHz and 6GHz bands, making your network more reliable and reducing latency. Plus, the 2.5 Gig internet port lets you fully enjoy today’s multi-gig internet speeds.

The Orbi router and satellites are designed to look good and perform even better, with four high-performance internal antennas ensuring 360-degree coverage. It also uses preamble puncturing to block interference and keep your connection stable.

The Nighthawk RS300 is perfect for those who want high performance on a budget. It offers speeds up to 9.3Gbps and covers up to 2,500 square feet, supporting up to 100 devices. It features a 2.5 Gig internet port and extra LAN ports for fast wired connections.

NETGEAR’s routers come with top-notch security features like automatic firmware updates, VPN support, and WPA3 security. The Orbi 770 series also introduces Advanced Router Protection, developed with Bitdefender, which adds an extra layer of security against known and unknown threats.

Both Orbi 770 and Nighthawk RS300 come with a 30-day trial of NETGEAR Armor, which provides security for all your connected devices and added privacy with VPN. NETGEAR Smart Parental Controls are also included to help manage kids’ online time and promote good habits.
