Netgear Orbi’s settings can be accessed by logging into its admin panel. To log in, you can use either the web URL orbilogin.net or the default gateway IP 192.168.1.1. The IP address is put to use to gain access to the web interface of the Orbi device. However, you can also use the Orbi app on your smartphone.
To log in you ought to be connected to the local network. We shall talk about that in the upcoming sections while discussing the login process.
