Help using nighthawk cax80 with orbi rbr850 and 2 satellites

Not sure if there are detailed steps in another post, but i'm doing something wrong.  Started by downloading the orbi app.  Went through the steps, but mobile device wouldn't connect to "orbi 50" address.  Looked at additional information that stated I need to disable to router portion of the cax80.  I don't see that option in the Nighthawk app and the webpage is taking me in loops. 

 

At this point, my laptop finds my wifi name but cant connect to wifi.  I'm connecting using a hotspot.

 

Can anyone help?

First, do you have the CAX80 up and running/working? 

What I'd recommend then is to run the orbi in access point mode. 

Just make sure to have the orbi on a different wirless channel and with a different ssid than the CAX. 

That prevents interference. 

It allows you to still use the CAX's wifi but have the coverage of the orbi. 

 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
