Netgear Orbi setup using the web interface

Here are the steps you need to take to connect your Orbi system to your modem through a web interface:

Router setup

There is no other component to a mesh network as important as the Orbi router. It is responsible for distributing data from the primary modem to the other devices in the LAN. To configure your Orbi router do as follows

Connect it to the modem

Step one is to use an ethernet cable to connect the Orbi router to the primary modem. Connect your modem to the router’s yellow LAN using an ethernet cable.

Power it on

Turn on your router after you have connected to the modem. To turn on the power LED, simply plug the power cord into the DC port. Try turning it on if it’s dark. There will be green power LED on the router once it has been turned on completely.

Reboot the modem

The router may fail to connect to the modem after booting up. In this case, turning off and back on the modem should help restore the connection

Join the Orbi

You can now connect your device to the router, either wirelessly or via an ethernet cable. The router has the WiFi information for wireless connection.

Open the setup page

Launch a browser once your gadget is linked to the router’s network. Put www orbilogin com into your browser’s address bar, a website for configuring Orbi products by default

Get it online

To locate a working internet connection, the installation process will first check the mode. Restart the modem if it still can’t connect to the internet after that. You can proceed with the installation by clicking “Next” once your internet connection has been recognized.

Create a login account

An administration account must be created after an internet connection has been made. You’ll need this account to log in to the Orbi admin interface and exercise full control over your network. This means you’ll need to enter the password, confirm the password, and pick and answer a series of security questions.

Set up WiFi

Once the administrator account has been created, the Orbi WiFi system can be set up. In a rare occurrence, the Orbi router has a pre-set WiFi name and password. Set the WIFi name and password, or skip this step if you’re happy with the default settings. The WiFi network requires a password separate from the admin login


After a short while, the Orbi signup form will be accessible. When registering your Orbi here, you will be asked to log in with your existing Netgear account or create a new one.

Satellite setup

Here are the steps to connect an Orbi satellite to an Orbi router:

Place the satellite

During initial configuration, the Orbi satellite should remain near the router. After you’ve paired it with the Orbi router, you can move it wherever you like.

Power it on

The Orbi satellite’s power LED will turn green once you plug in the AC adapter. Now, stay put until the Orbi satellite’s front or ring LED lights up bright white.

Press sync

When it’s completely white, you can sync the satellite by pressing the button on the back. Also, please activate the router’s sync button within the next 120 seconds.

Allow the satellite link to the router

Allow up to 8 minutes for the satellite to connect to the router. Indicative of a successful link, the satellite’s lights will do one of the followings:

  • Colored “blue” means that the connection is active and functioning properly.
  • We have a stable connection, and its status is “amber”. The satellite should probably be placed near the router.
  • If you see a “magenta” light, it means your satellite’s connection was unsuccessful and you should move closer to the router.

Enjoy the WiFI

Once you’ve set up the satellite, you can move it to where you like. Determine the status of the connection based on the behavior of the LEDs
