Nighthawk Mesh WiFi 6 system cannot add satellite on wireless network

I bought a NETGEAR - Nighthawk MK63 AX1800 Wi-Fi 6 Mesh Router with Two Satellite Extenders. I am trying to add another satelite but cannot add wireless but only using a cable to the router. If I synch using wiresless it gets stuck on the red light.

Re: Nighthawk Mesh WiFi 6 system cannot add satellite on wireless network

@plemans seems the fix is to use the synch button using the router app "Add Netgear Satelite" feature and then press the synch button on the satelite harware, at the same time, the satelite then connects and the light turns blue, eventutaly. The only issue is if you unplug the satelite you have to setup the synching again, it wont reconnect automatically.

Try powering off the other 2 satellites that have already been synced. then when the new one syncs, power the others back on. 

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

@plemans same result, will only connect when the satelite is wired. I get a red light when I try synching the satelite.

eitherway, glad to hear you got it working!

If you mark your answer as solved, it might help the next person with that issue (since there's so few on here helping)
