WiFi connection

I live in a rural area with no WiFi service. Can I use a Smart Bro portable WiFi with Ethernet out to connect to the Orbi router?

Potentially yes. Not sure what specific smart bro device you're using but if it has an integrated router (more than likely) you'll probably need to put the orbi in AP mode or you'll have a double nat issue.
there's a bunch of results on connecting a smart bro hotspot to a router and they look to be successful.
Current Setup: CM2000-> SXK30-> GS716v2-> RAXE500->
