Sure does! Only problem is that costco doesn’t sell it yet 😞 and the only version they sell is the slower one RBK 842 smh 🤦‍♂️ (Router + Satellite )

Re: RBK 853 IS OUT!!!!!!

I was also looking at the Costco 2 pack and am disappointed they don’t have the rbk853.

What did you mean by slower rbk842? How is the rbk842 different from the rbk852? (I thought it might just be the number reserved for big box stores but didn’t think to see if it was actually inferior)

Any word on individual satellites for sale???

Re: RBK 853 IS OUT!!!!!!

I think the differences being the max connection rates on the 2.4Ghz radios are slower on the 40 series AX. 

 

You can look at the spec sheets between the 50 and 40 series to see what they are. I think the 5Ghz wireless backhaul speeds are the same thought.

Re: RBK 853 IS OUT!!!!!!

Ah yes you’re right. Looks like 2.4ghz only goes to 900 megabits/sec versus 1200 on the rbk852.

Are the individual satellites (the 84x or 85x) up for sale anywhere? Only seeing the three pack kit

Re: RBK 853 IS OUT!!!!!!

Can the RBK85x satellites be added to the RBK84x router?  My concern in buying the costco 2-pack of RBK852 is that I'll only fins RB84x satellites because those are the ubiquitous ones likely for individual sale.

Re: RBK 853 IS OUT!!!!!!

Probably yes....they would just work at the lower 2.4Ghz connection rate is all. Wireless back haul should be the same.
