Re: which netgear wifi for replacement of airport extreme base station

I live in a single family house, 1400 square feet and only one level. Which netgear orbi or nighthawk? Most importantly is the compatibility with my Motorola modem, spectrum internet service (used to be time warner) and arlo base station. https://www.amazon.com/NETGEAR-Orbi-Whole-Home-System/dp/B07...
