That's due in large part to ill-advised marketing strategies and questionable 5G "launches" by the four major wireless carriers.

Orbi Voice takes what the series already does very well and adds an Amazon Alexa-capable speaker to the mix. To ensure the best sound possible, Netgear partnered with premium audio brand Harman Kardon, which has also announced a range of new products here at IFA. Read More
It's getting easier to set up your own internet-connected home surveillance system, but that usually still means running cables to power all your fancy HD cameras. Arlo, which recently spun off from Netgear, offers an alternative. Its Arlo Pro line of cameras can keep tabs on your home without wires, and they last for months on a charge.
