Take the internet outdoors
Do you have a hard time getting solid Wi-Fi coverage in the yard, by the pool, or in outbuildings? This NETGEAR Orbi Outdoor Satellite is weather-resistant and wall-mountable, and it works with any router, not just Orbi. It adds up to 2,500 square feet of coverage, so you can play music, stream videos, and place wireless security cameras farther from your house.
Strong, fast Wi-Fi
The satellite offers tri-band Wi-Fi, with plenty of bandwidth to connect multiple devices and a 5GHz band dedicated to maintaining a strong connection to your existing indoor network. MU-MIMO (multiple-user, multiple-input, multiple-output) allows simultaneous data streaming to multiple devices. And beamforming boosts the speed, reliability and range of your connection.
The free Orbi app offers handy setup and control options. When you have a gathering, you can use it to set up a secure guest network so everyone can enjoy access. It offers robust parental controls, including the ability to pause Wi-Fi for specific devices to reduce distractions during homework, dinner, or bedtimes. You can use the app to monitor connected devices and do a speed test to make sure you're getting what your service provider promised.

Orbi Outdoor WiFi Range Extender: The Orbi outdoor WiFi range extender (RBS50Y-200NAS) extends your existing WiFi network outdoors to your porch, deck, patio, pool, or detached garage (up to 2,500 sq/ft). The Orbi outdoor WiFi range extender can be used with many NETGEAR Orbi Mesh WiFi Systems (not the newest WiFi 6 models) in Orbi Mode, and with any existing WiFi router in Extender Mode.
- Weather Resistance (IP66): The Orbi outdoor WiFi range extender is weather resistant and engineered to withstand the rain, snow, and sun. Now you can stay connected outdoors, rain or shine, with the Orbi outdoor WiFi range extender. Enjoy uninterrupted video streaming on your mobile devices or blast away music to the speakers in your backyard. Its IP66 rating means it is protected from total dust ingress and protected from high pressure water jets from any direction (limited ingress protection).
- 4x4 Backhaul: The Orbi outdoor WiFi range extender's dedicated 4x4 backhaul (1.7Gbps) provides much stronger connection to punch through exterior walls, as compared to indoor mesh WiFi access points, so your WiFi speeds will be much faster to your detached structures such as the garage, shed, pool house, or the in-law quarters. Play music, stream videos without buffering or place your WiFi video cameras farther from your house.
- One Network Name: The Orbi outdoor WiFi range extender (RBS50Y-200NAS) creates a dedicated WiFi connection with the convenience of a single WiFi name for your whole home or office - indoors and outdoors.
