Help with Netgear MR60

Afternoon,

I have a Mesh MR60 & MS60 satellite, but due to adding security cameras I had to re-position my satellite which means no signal in daughter's room. I have just bought a EX7700 cheap & hoping this will seamlessly connect to the MR60 ? ....and if so, is it an easy task ?

Many thanks

Re: Help with Netgear MR60

How many MS are deployed? 
What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and 📡 satellite(s)? 30 feet or more is recommended in between MR📡 and MS🛰️ to begin with depending upon building materials when wired or wirelessly connected.

Should connect ok with the EX7700. 30 feet distance is recommended as well.️

I currently have 1 satellite connected . Square footage of home is 432ft Sq.
Approximately 12ft between router & satellite (wirelessly).
Was thinking of positioning the EX7700 upstairs .

Hope that helps ?

What is the building materials of this home? 

432ft? Small home? 

12 feet to TOO close between the MR and the MS. You need 30 feet to start here in between them.

Outside walls are brick & block. Inner walls are plasterboard. Small house compared to US house maybe. MR & MS have worked absolutely fine for years . I just need more signal upstairs. Had to move MS from upstairs to downstairs. Both MR & MS have never been 30ft apart.

May need to add on another MS possibly. 12 feet is too close between the MR and MS.
