Connect the router

  • The very first step, power on the Orbi router and connect it to your home modem.
  • Unplug the modem from the power source and if there is any battery in it – take it out. Let the modem only be connected to the wall jack for internet service.
  • Time to shoot power again in your modem; if it runs on battery, insert the battery again.
  • Use an Ethernet cable to establish a connection between your home modem and the Orbi router.
  • Plug in the power adapter to a power socket and then to the router.
  • The LED indicator of power on the router will blaze. If it does not, then make sure that the adapter is in the socket or power outlet properly.

  • Place the Orbi Satellite within the range of the Orbi router’s Wi-Fi networks. This will help in syncing devices properly. Please keep them in a closed periphery.
  • Time to give some power to the satellite. Connect it to a power socket.
  • The LED indicator of the satellite will go pulsing or blinking white. The Orbi satellite will automatically look for the router’s signal to sync both devices.
  • Make sure the colour of the indicator on the back goes blue, not amber. If it is amber then, bring the satellite closer to the Orbi router.
  • Check for the LED indicator light again. If the indicator turns magenta then, bring the satellite closer to the router. In case the light turns off or does not turn blue, amber, or magenta, then my dear friend press the sync button on the back of the router.
  • Within two minutes, press the sync button of the satellite too.
  • For the last step, wait till the LED indicator turns blue or amber.
