Don from San Clemente, CA

Episode 1391 (45:39)

Netgear Orbi

Don's has a large, 1,000 square foot lot and he installed Google's On Hub Wi-Fi Mesh router. Leo says that Google's On Hub isn't his favorite at all. He prefers the NetGear Orbi because it's the most powerful. It comes with a base unit and a satellite unit and it'll easily cover a few hundred feet.

How can he determine the amount of buffer bloat in his router? Leo says that Netalyzer is what he'll want, or he can run the speed test at DSLReports.com. Leo says it's really an overblown thing that he doesn't need to worry about. Netalyzer requires Java to run, so he should be aware.
