R9000 Router Will the Orbi RBS40V work?

Hello I have a R9000 Router but I have some areas that I"m not getting the speed I'd like.

 

I saw the Orbi RBS40V that appears to be on sale now.   I was wanting to know will it properly work with the R9000 Router? & will it work on the RBS40V

No, the orbi satellites will only work with an orbi router. You will want to look into our Mesh extenders that would work with your R9000.

Yes it will work. Disregard what @DarrenM said.  The RBS40V has mesh extender mode that you can use.

Simplex or duplex? Not sure what you're referring to with that. 

the RBS40V will act as a tri-band mesh extender. It dedicates one of its 5ghz bands to communication with the router.
