SNMP on RBR50v2 and RBS50v2
I had posted this as a question on the Orbi forum (https://community.netgear.com/t5/Orbi/SNMP-on-RBR50v2-and-RBS50v2/td-p/1768958), but it seems it might be better suited here as a suggestion with reasoning, or at least as another heartfelt supportive vote for the few previous idea posts that also suggested SNMP on Orbi:
"I searched the forum for "SNMP", yet most "can't do" answers are left from 2017, and since then there have been many NOs that turned into YESes by hardware/software updates. So, I'll refresh the question...
The online PDF manual for RBRxx & RBSxx says, on the many pages under the title "default settings" that "SNMP: Disabled". That seems to mildly indicate that there might be a way, now or in the future, to enable it. I have just bought RBK50v2, all set up, works, happy, etc. It is a large house (I bought TWO RBK50v2!), so I am also replacing my misc ~15 year old unmanaged Netgear switches with Netgear's "Smart Managed Pro" 8/16/24-port switches. These are switches that implement the "SNMP v1/v2c and v3" for discovery & management by tools like LanTopoLog (https://www.lantopolog.com/) as well as more professional LAN mapping software (like, SolarWinds etc). So, I was wondering if the Orbi routers and sattelites will be visible in these topology maps when I am all done wiring up the stuff. I have looked at ORBI's router admin pages for settings, but nothing screamed as SNMP; maybe it is labeled as something different.
I know that orbilogin.com shows a list of the devices on the network, and I appreciate that VERY much; I already spent hours properly assigning friendly names to all the devices on my network. But a list is not a topology, and the iPhone app just showing which Orbi is connected to which other Orbi via wired or wireless is also not LAN topology. I want to see what device is connected to which switch/router/satelite either wirelessly or wired, and which port, if wired.
Upfront thanks for any insight about the current and future state of SNMP on Orbi.
