If you set up your computer to use a static IP address, change the settings so that it uses Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Wired connection You can connect your computer to the router using an Ethernet cable and join the router’s local area network (LAN). To connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable: 1. Make sure that the router is receiving power (its Power LED is lit). 2. Connect an Ethernet cable to an Ethernet port on your computer. 3. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to one of the router’s Ethernet ports. Your computer connects to the local area network (LAN). A message might display on your computer screen to notify you that an Ethernet cable is connected. WiFi connection If you're installing your Orbi router for the first time, you can connect to the router's WiFi network by scanning the QR code on your router with the camera app on your mobile device. To scan the QR code with your camera app, your mobile device must have iOS version 11 or later or Android version 10 or later. You can also manually find and select the Orbi router's WiFi network from your WiFi-enabled computer or mobile device. To find and select the WiFi network: 1. Make sure that the router or satellite is receiving power (its Power LED is lit). 2. On your WiFi-enabled computer or mobile device, find and select the WiFi network. The WiFi network name is on the router label. The WiFi network name is the same for the router and the satellite in the Orbi WiFi System. Note: If you bought the router and the satellite separately, their default WiFi network names are different. 3. Join the WiFi network and enter the WiFi password. The password is on the router label. Your WiFi-enabled computer or mobile device connects to the WiFi network. Connect to the Orbi Pro WiFi 6 22 User Manual Network and Access the Router Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Router SXR80 and Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Satellite SXR80 WiFi connection using WPS You can connect to the router’s WiFi network with Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) or you can find and select the WiFi network.

It is important that you understand the difference so that you know which login to use when. Types of logins: • Internet service login. The login that your Internet service provider (ISP) gave you logs you in to your Internet service. Your service provider gave you this login information in a letter or some other way. If you cannot find this login information, contact your service provider. • WiFi network key or password. Your router and satellite are preset with the same WiFi network name (SSID) and password for WiFi access. This information is on the router label and the satellite label. • Router login. This logs you in to the router interface from a web browser as admin. Use a web browser to access the router When you connect to the network (either with WiFi or with an Ethernet cable), you can use a web browser to access the router to view or change its settings. The first time you access the router, the NETGEAR installation assistant automatically checks to see if your router can connect to your Internet service. Connect to the Orbi Pro WiFi 6 23 User Manual Network and Access the Router Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Router SXR80 and Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Satellite SXR80 Use the automatic Internet setup option You can set up your router automatically, or you can use a web browser to access the router and set up your router manually. Before you start the setup process, get your ISP information and make sure that the computers and devices in the network use the settings described here. When your Internet service starts, your Internet service provider (ISP) typically gives you all the information needed to connect to the Internet. For DSL service, you might need the following information to set up your router: • The ISP configuration information for your DSL account • ISP login name and password • Fixed or static IP address settings (special deployment by ISP; this setting is rare) If you cannot locate this information, ask your ISP to provide it. When your Internet connection is working, you no longer need to launch the ISP login program on your computer to access the Internet. When you start an Internet application, your router automatically logs you in. Installation and basic setup takes about 15 minutes to complete. To automatically set up your router: 1. Power on your router. 2. Make sure that your WiFi-enabled computer or mobile device is connected to the router with an Ethernet cable (wired) or wirelessly with the preset security settings listed on the label. Note: If you want to change the router’s WiFi settings, use a wired connection to avoid being disconnected when the new WiFi settings take effect. 3. Launch a web browser. The page that displays depends on whether you accessed the router before: • The first time that you set up the Internet connection for your router, the browser goes to orbilogin.com, and the Orbi login page displays. • If you already set up the Internet connection, enter orbilogin.com in the address field for your browser to start the installation process. 4.

When one network device communicates across the Internet with another, the data packets travel through many devices along the way. If a device in the data path uses a lower MTU setting than the other devices, the data packets must be split or “fragmented” to accommodate the device with the smallest MTU. The best MTU setting for NETGEAR equipment is often the default value. In some situations, changing the value fixes one problem but causes another. Leave the MTU unchanged unless one of these situations occurs: • You experience problems connecting to your ISP or other Internet service, and the technical support of either the ISP or NETGEAR recommends changing the MTU setting. These web-based applications might require an MTU change: - A secure website that does not open, or displays only part of a web page - Yahoo email - MSN portal • You use VPN and experience severe performance problems. • You used a program to optimize MTU for performance reasons, and now you are experiencing connectivity or performance problems. Note: An incorrect MTU setting can cause Internet communication problems. For example, you might not be able to access certain websites, frames within websites, secure login pages, or FTP or POP servers. To change the MTU size: 1. Launch a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to your Orbi network. 2. Enter orbilogin.com. A login window opens. 3. Enter the admin user name and password.

Specify Your Internet Settings 45 User Manual 4 Control Access to the Internet The router comes with a built-in firewall that helps protect your home network from unwanted intrusions from the Internet. This chapter includes the following sections: • Manage MAC access control lists for WiFi networks and the LAN • Manage the Orbi network access control list • Use keywords to block Internet sites • Delete keywords that are used to block Internet sites • Avoid blocking on a trusted computer • Block services from the Internet • Schedule when to block Internet sites and services • Set up security event email notifications 46 Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Router SXR80 and Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Satellite SXR80 Manage MAC access control lists for WiFi networks and the LAN A MAC access control list (ACL) for a WiFi network (that is, an SSID) or the wired network (that is, the LAN) allows or denies a device access to the network based only on the MAC address of the device. If you block a device for one WiFi network or for the wired network, the device is blocked only for that WiFi network or for the wired network. You can set up an independent MAC ACL for each WiFi network and for the wired network. (The router supports a total of five MAC ACLs.) With a MAC ACL, you can allow or deny access to a device on a specific WiFi network or the wired network. Note: A MAC ACL differs from the network access control list (see Manage the Orbi network access control list on page 52). The network access control list is not specific to a particular WiFi network or to the wired network but is based on both WiFi and wired devices that the router detects on the entire Orbi network. To allow or deny access to a device on a specific WiFi network or the wired network, use a MAC ACL. MAC ACLs and the network access control list are mutually exclusive. Use either MAC ACLs or the network access control list. If you set up a MAC ACL with a policy that allows access to a specific network, devices on the MAC ACL are an exception to the default policy: • A device for which you place the MAC address on the MAC ACL is denied access to that network. • All other devices are allowed access to that network. If you set up a MAC ACL with a policy that denies access to a specific network, devices on the MAC ACL are an exception to the default policy: • A device for which you place the MAC address on the MAC ACL is allowed access to that work. • All other devices are denied access to that network. A blocked device can still get an IP address from the router but cannot communicate with other devices on the network or connect to the Internet. Note: Each network device owns a MAC address, which is a unique 12-character physical address, containing the hexadecimal characters 0–9, a–f, or A–F (uppercase orlowercase) only, and separated by colons (for example, 00:09:AB:CD:EF:01). Typically, the MAC address is on the label of a device. If you cannot see the label, you can display the MAC address using the network configuration utilities of a computer. You might also find the MAC addresses on Attached Devices page of the router(see View satellites, WiFi devices, and wired devices connected to the Orbi network on page 127). Control Access to the Internet 47 User Manual Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Router SXR80 and Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Satellite SXR80 Enable a MAC ACL for a specific network When you enable a MAC ACL for a specific network, you must specify the default policy for that network. The default policy determines whether devices that you add to the MAC ACL are allowed or denied access to that specific network. You can set up an independent MAC ACL for each of the four WiFi networks and for the wired network. That is, the router supports a total of five MAC ACLs. To enable a MAC ACL for a specific network: 1. Launch a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to your Orbi network. 2. Enter orbilogin.com. A login window opens. 3. Enter the router admin user name and password. The user name is admin. The password is the one that you specified the first time that you logged in. The user name and password are case-sensitive. The BASIC Home page displays. 4. Select ADVANCED > Security > MAC ACL. The MAC ACL page displays. 5. Go to the section for the network for which you want to set up a MAC ACL. The first section is for the admin WiFi network, the second for the employee WiFi network, the third for the IoT WiFi network, the fourth for the guest WiFi network, and the fifth for the wired network. 6. For the specific network, click the Enable MAC Access Control Disabled button. The button changes to the green Enabled button. Note: If you enabled the network access control list (see Enable the network access control list and specify the access rule on page 53), you cannot enable any MAC ACLs. The network access control list and MAC ACLs are mutually exclusive. Use either the network access control list or MAC ACLs. 7. From the Default Policy menu, select one of the following options: • Allow. The policy is to allow all devices access except for the devices that you add to the MAC ACL. Devices on the MAC ACL are denied access to the specific network. • Deny. The policy is to deny all devices access except for the devices that you add to the MAC ACL. Devices on the MAC ACL are allowed access to the specific network. Control Access to the Internet 48 User Manual Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Router SXR80 and Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Satellite SXR80 You can now add and manage devices on the MAC ACL. For more information, see the following sections: • Add automatically detected devices to a MAC ACL on page 49 • Manually add, remove, or change the information for a device on a MAC ACL on page 50 Add automatically detected devices to a MAC ACL After you set up a MAC ACL for a network and specify the default policy for the MAC ACL, the router automatically detects devices that are connected or were connected to the network for which you set up the MAC ACL. You can select one or multiple devices from the detected list and add them to the MAC ACL. To add automatically detected devices to a MAC ACL: 1.

Manage the Orbi network access control list You can use the network access control list (ACL) to block or allow access to the entire Orbi network. An ACL functions with the MAC addresses of WiFi and wired devices that the router detects on the Orbi network and that you can either allow access to your network or deny access to your network. That is, the router can detect the MAC addresses of devices that are or were connected to the Orbi network and list the MAC addresses of these devices. Note: The network access control list differs from a MAC ACL (see Manage MAC access control lists for WiFi networks and the LAN on page 47). A MAC ACL is specific to a particular WiFi network or to the wired network but is not based on devices that the router detects on the entire Orbi network. With a MAC ACL, you can allow or deny access to a device on a specific WiFi network or the wired network. The network access control list and MAC ACLs are mutually exclusive. Use either the network access control list or MAC ACLs. If you set up a network ACL with an access rule that allows access to the Orbi network, devices on the network ACL are an exception to the access rule: • A device for which you place the MAC address on the network ACL is denied access to the Orbi network. • All other devices are allowed access to the Orbi network. If you set up a network ACL with an access rule that denies access to the Orbi network, devices on the network ACL are an exception to the access rule: • A device for which you place the MAC address on the network ACL is allowed access to the Orbi network. • All other devices are denied access to the Orbi network.

Your settings are saved. Manage Dynamic DNS Internet service providers (ISPs) assign numbers called IP addresses to identify each Internet account. Most ISPs use dynamically assigned IP addresses. This means that the IP address can change at any time. You can use the IP address to access your network remotely, but most people don’t know what their IP addresses are or when this number changes. To make it easier to connect, you can get a free account with a Dynamic DNS service that lets you use a domain name to access your home network. To use this account, you must set up the router to use Dynamic DNS. Then the router notifies the Dynamic DNS service provider whenever its IP address changes. When you access your Dynamic DNS account, the service finds the current IP address of your home network and automatically connects you. If yourISP assigns a private WAN IP address (such as 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x), the Dynamic DNS service does not work because private addresses are not routed on the Internet. Set up a new Dynamic DNS account To set up Dynamic DNS and register for a free NETGEAR account: 1. Launch a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to your Orbi network. 2.

Set up a default DMZ server The default DMZ server feature is helpful when you are using some online games and videoconferencing applications that are incompatible with Network Address Translation (NAT). The router is programmed to recognize some of these applications and to work correctly with them, but other applications might not function well. In some cases, one local computer can run the application correctly if the IP address for that computer is entered as the default DMZ server. Specify Network Settings 69 User Manual Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Router SXR80 and Orbi Pro WiFi 6 Satellite SXR80 DMZ servers pose a security risk. A computer designated as the default DMZ server loses much of the protection of the firewall and is exposed to exploits from the Internet. If compromised, the DMZ server computer can be used to attack other computers on your network. The router usually detects and discards incoming traffic from the Internet that is not a response to one of your local computers or a service that you configured in the Port Forwarding/Port Triggering page. Instead of discarding this traffic, you can specify that the router forwards the traffic to one computer on your network. This computer is called the default DMZ server. To set up a default DMZ server: 1. Launch a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to your Orbi network. 2. Enter orbilogin.com. A login window opens. 3.
