Adding RBS 750 Satellite to existing network of 2 satellites will not connect.

How many satellites will network support? Do all of the satellites in the network need to be able to connect with each other or can they relay one to another? I have one of the existing satellites in a separate nearby building and the two existing satellites connect but the one I am adding may not be able to connect to the satelitte in the nearby building.

Yes, Orbi satellite can connect directly to the router, or to one of the existing satellites:

Netgear recommends up to four satellites on your system:

It would be a good idea to first connect the additional satellite while in the same room as the router.

This will establish whether it "works".
