re: Number of satellites

Hi, i read somewhere maximum of  6 satellites SXR80 can be attached to AX600 router, is this correct? - if so what other system do you recommend to have more satellites?  We would like to add more than 6,

 

thank you,

Tell us a little bit more what is the idea driving this direction please?

 

Mode Bandwidth?

Additional coverage?

More wireless clients?

Any network cabling available in the buildings?

Other?

Re: re: Number of satellites

The formal answer would be adding an additional Orbi Pro WiFi 6 system in AP (Access Point) mode.

 

This would require a wired connection from the existing SXR80 router LAN port to the additional SXR80 serving as the dedicated base station. Needless to say, this needs to be in a place central to the newly added SXS80, ideally in a different area of your building, on a different floor along with the new satellites.

 

Honestly, is most deployments, this isn't possible. I would look into possibilities to implement a -real- network, with some PoE switch(es), forming a reliable wired backhaul, and install wireless access points. Yes, this requires a lot of network wiring. 

 

Tell us more about your building, so you might convince me there is no other way 8-)
