Have you connected your home router with more than one satellite? And do you also use a central unit? Then it becomes Orbi’s fastest roaming system. Your mobile devices and tablets will automatically connect to the nearby satellite devices. And they will begin functioning very well. If you move from one room to another, the device will automatically disconnect from the farthest satellite. And it will get hooked to another nearby satellite. Netgear Orbi has brought this technique to improve the overall efficiency of your wifi networks. You have the option to accept or reject this feature. If there is a lot of shifting from your side, you can disable this Orbi’s fast roaming mode.

- Solid Blue LED:It means a good connection between the Orbi router and the satellite.
- Solid Magenta LED: This means the satellite is not at all connected to the router. Move the satellite closer to the Orbi router.
