Using another Orbi Router as a Satellite
Few things i know others have brought up but I will also.
1. Add Orbi Routers the ability to also connect as a satellite. For example many of us because both on the home and business version needed extra satellites but they were not available yet so we purchased extra sets with routers. The routers are doing nothing but stored, total waste of money. Yes we can make them AP but need to be hardwired, this was purchased for a wireless solution, not wired solution. If the next firmware can upgrade the routers to also go into satellite mode would be great or give us a firmware to upload to turn the routers into a satellite. We already spent to the money think it would be the right thing to do. Since both router and satellite are the same hardware.
2. Because of the limit satellites for the orbi pro it would be nice if the satellites from the orbi home were compatible.
I think this has been the greatest stress and also the limit on how many satellites a router can support. This is a great platform but great limitations for my business I have Orbi Router 2 satellites and have the 2 ex8000 6xs connected to cover our warehouse and office and have 2 extra routers i cant do anything with other than hard wire. Still have dead space but at the point as a business i really dont want to waste more money just to buy combo orbi pros because of this limitation. I think if this can be worked up this will switch alot of business to use this great product. Also since both Nighthawk 6xs and 4xs are the same hardware as orbi can future firmware allow them to show up satellites?
