Hi, I have a fibre connection at home, with a Tp-link Archer C7 modem/router, how do i connect up a Orbi RBK50 2pc set to it? Do i have to disable the 2 and 5 ghz wireless connection on the C7? Thanks.

If you gave Fibre to the premises NBN, that has an Ethernet port in the house. So it’s Easiest to replace the Archer C7 with the Orbi Router, otherwise the two wifi setups will fight and you will have two routers back to back.

2. Best reception
3. High speed
4. Can connect with Galaxy 9 & Xbox & Microsoft laptop & iPhone.
5. Telstra internet
I'm really lost and need your advice. Thanks

I have modem supplied by Exetel ZTE brand. Should I upgrade this modem with Netgear AC2300 D7000 Modem+Router($224) or just buy one orbi unit and switch off existing modem wifi. I don't have issue with coverage and don't have big house, just wifi speed is slow. Not sure speed will increase with orbi + existing basic modem.

Since this is only a router and not a modem, which modem do you all use/recommend? Where did you buy/obtain your modem to use with the netgear orbi router?

NBN already has modem installed in the wall. Router plugs in and it's good to go.

I just use a Telstra Modem - Thompson TG799 but have also used the older model TG797
I disable the wifi on the modem
But any ADSL modem will do


Thanks! I just moved from the US, where we're quite behind on fibre internet so this'll be my first try with it. I read a couple articles that said the same, but it's nice to get your confirmation CLM and John.
Kind regards,
