How many satellites can be added to the WiFi 6, MK63?

Re: MK63

It is probably a generic thing. Nothing special about the MK63.

 

These might offer some guidance:

 

How many clients can you connect wirelessly to a NETGEAR router? | Answer | NETGEAR Support

 

How many devices can my Orbi system support? | Answer | NETGEAR Support

 

If you visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

you can feed in your model number and find the documentation for your hardware.

Re: MK63

Hello - You didn't answer my question.  It was related to MK63 satellites and not the number of clients.    I have a MK63 system with 1 router and 2 satellites.    Can I add another 1 or 3 or how many?   I would like to extend my network further into my house.

thanks!

Yup.

 

Did you try your own search?

 

Search - NETGEAR Communities – How many satellites

 

Always a good place to start, along with the support pages for your device (see above).

Re: MK63

I have three satellites now, all hard wired back(haul) to the MK60 router. Bought the MK63 set, then addded an additional satellite. So far so good, but it has only been a few days dince I added the third satellite. Not sure if there is an actual limit of satellites, but my guess is that it is possible to set up a few extras if you need to.

Re: MK63

hey, i see you backhauled the sats to the router, but the router only has one port, did you add a switch or are you using a different router than what comes with the 63 setup? im thinking or running homeruns to backhaul as well since the house is 3 stories and wifi dips from time to time. thanks

Re: MK63

I added a small Gb switch which is only used for this wifi mesh network. And my MK60 router's WAN is connected to my primary router's LAN. Probably not a supported config and not optimal (speed wise) but it works great for what I need.
