Orbi uses a simplified setup menu seen above. The dashboard gives you a glance at the number of devices connected along with the Wi-Fi SSID and password.

Going through the menus, we have the internet menu first that allows you to configure the router with your ISP settings.

Wireless for the Orbi uses band steering to choose channels for your devices.
