Can my orbi physically locate its satellite

I can't find the satellite which the router information says is connected.  Can the Orbi physically locate the satellite for me? Is there any other method of locating it or do I have to buy a new one?

Re: Can my orbi physically locate its satellite

I'm confused. You have a satellite connected but you can't find it? 

Does it say if its connected wired/wireless? 

You could always try using a wireless scanner and walk around and test locations. The signal strengths will at least give you a general idea.

I would try using either a laptops or a phone and download a decent wireless scanner. 

You can use the rssi strength to get to its general vicinity. then it should just be a matter of checking outlets or if there's POE ports.
