Overview[edit]

866Mbps - 2-stream 802.11ac backhaul (433Mbps per stream),
866Mbps - 2-stream 802.11ac device (433Mbps per stream),
400Mbps - QAM-256 2.4GHz channel = 2200 Mbps class

802.11ac Two-Stream Wave2 WiFi plus Dedicated Two-Stream Wireless Backhaul

  • Netgear Orbi Kit (RBK40): Orbi Router (RBR40) + Orbi Satellite (RBS40)
  • Netgear Orbi Kit (RBK43): Orbi Router (RBR40) + 2x Orbi Satellite (RBS40)

"2976551502" is silkscreened on the board in the FCC photos.

DFS was added with a FCC Class II Permissive Change request on 12/22/2017. This Orbi Satellite acts as a DFS master at frequencies from 5250 MHz to 5350 MHz and as a DFS slave from 5470 MHz to 5725 MHz.

A new FCC entry (PY317400404) dated 02/27/2018 removes bluetooth support.
