Orbi Pro missing Daisy Chain topology

Orbi Pro missing Daisy Chain topology is missing Daisy Chain topology in V1.12.1.28 firmware. 

It's illogical that a "Pro" version of a product misses one important feature of the least expensive model. 

Also, several vendors state that this product creates a "wireless mesh network", but in practice satellites only connect to routers, so for now this is a false statement.

 

Any workaround for this?

 

Surely Netgear can make this right in the near future.

The option seems to be unavailable.

Re: Orbi Pro missing Daisy Chain topology

Hmmm, I just found that on the debug page. Anyone know why it might be there AND disabled?

Re: Orbi Pro missing Daisy Chain topology

Found a solution thanks to @Boomerang3.

 

First I installed the V1.12.1.38_BETA firmware (sent to me by a Netgear support representative) on my Orbi Pro router and both of the Orbi Pro Satellites.

 

Then, I tried enabling daisy chain feautre through the [ip]/debug.htm of one of the satellites, but the feature was disabled and locked.

 

The solution was to enable the daisy chain feature through the [ip]/debug.htm of the router, which allowed the change.

 

After this, and waiting a couple of minutes, both the satellites had the daisy chain feature enabled and a working connection between the two of my satellites. 

 

Greetings,

 

Simon

Re: Orbi Pro missing Daisy Chain topology

Are Orbi Pro Beta Firmware updates recommended? Everything is running well now, and I don't want to introduce any issues. Has anyone else upadated to the .38 Beta Hotfix?

With the new update, the Enable Daisy Chain has appeared in the Wireless Settings.
