Any update for Orbi AX work with Orbi RBS50 satellites wireless connection ?

I wish to have faster connection speed on my satelites, therefore I buy this new Orbi AX6000 set

 

Here is my problem, my old setting is Orbi Router(AP) -> 1F Satelites -> B1F& 2F Satelites (2 unit) all done in wireless

it works fine but mid-slow internet speed.

I'm tring replace Orbi AX as my old Orbi router and 1F Satelites, but it didn't work wireless with other old satelites (RBS50)

 

Is there any firmware to fix this wireless connection issue

 

Thank you so much

as of right now, RBS-50s only work with the RBR850 if they are hardwired.

 

Netgear is reportedly working on making them wirelessly compatible, but for the time being, wireless backhaul does not work between an RBS50 and an RBR850

My Equipment: Cox Cable (350Mb/35Mb), Orbi AX6000 (RBR850, RBS850), w/2 x RBS50) (Wired backhaul), NG GS116PP Gigabit Smart Switch, Synology DS1019+ NAS

NG won't announce when they will make the RBS50 compatible. You'll just have to keep checking the release notes for each FW update.
