Wifi technology

These three products are designed to work on different network segments, and these three products are simultaneous three-band mesh wifi systems. Both Orbi rbk750 and Asus rt-ax92U are designed with 8-streams of data, while Linksys Velop mx5 is designed with 12 streams, the highest number of streams compared to both Orbi and Asus products. All the three products support MU-MIMO, ideal in connecting to any compliant MU-MIMO devices such as Desktop computers with Archer tx3000e adapter installed for multiple streams of data to couples of MU-MIMO devices concurrently at a time.

Communication between mesh router and its satellites uses a wifi link backhaul and also the wired backhaul option using an Ethernet port connection s also supported.

See that Orbi rbk750 series uses dedicated backhaul link using radio band @5GHz with speed of 2,400Mbps, all the other two radio bands with total aggregated bandwidth of up to 1,800Mbps (600Mbps @2.4Ghz + 1,200Mbps @5GHz) are used for connected clients.

Asus rt-ax92u is also designed with dedicated backhaul link @5GHz band 4,800Mbps shared with other wifi-6 clients, while the other @5GHz and @2.4GHz radio bands are used for wireless ac and wireless-n  clients.

Linksys Velop mx5 uses different approach in connecting link between router and satellite by using both radio bands @5 GHz bands with dynamic backhaul link concept and shared with connected clients too.

Ethernet & USB ports

Unlike the Linksys Velop mx5 and Asus rt-ax92u which both routers and satellites each has 4x Gigabit LAN ports and 1x Gigabit WAN port with auto sensing either working as a mesh router or satellite node, Orbi differentiates between router and satellite and the mesh router is equipped with 1x Gigabit WAN port and 3x Gigabit LAN ports, while on satellite node there are only 2x Gigabit LAN ports.
