SXR80 with Wifi5 Orbi Pro Satellites

From a support article I found, it appears that the Wifi6 Orbi Pro Router (SXR80) is not compatible with the Wifi5 satellites (SRS60 and SRC60).  Does that apply to Ethernet backhaul as well, or only Wifi backhaul.  I would like to replace a damaged SRR60 with an SXR80, and 100% of my backhaul links are Ethernet.

@ranale,

 

Welcome to the community! 🙂 

 

 Does that apply to Ethernet backhaul as well, or only Wifi backhaul.  I would like to replace a damaged SRR60 with an SXR80, and 100% of my backhaul links are Ethernet.

It applies on both Ethernet backhaul and WiFi backhaul.  The Orbi Pro WiFi 6 devices cannot be paired and therefore, incompatible to work with Orbi Pro WiFi 5 devices.
