Compatibility of RBK853 wifi 6 system with RBS20 satellite

Hi there,

Is it possible to use an RBS20 satellite with the RBK853 wifi 6 system? I could either wire the RBS20 satellite to the RBR853 router or have it wireless, however I do not want to disable AX wifi-6 mode on the RBR853 router.

 

Any help is appreciated!

 

Cheers.

Model: RBK53|Orbi AC3000 Tri-band WiFi System, RBS40|Orbi AC2200 Tri-band WiFi Add-on Satellite

You could wired the RBS to the RBR. Currently RBS AC series units are not wirelessly compatible with Orbi AX.

Hi Furrye38,

 

Thanks for the response. Can I just confirm that I would not need to disable AX mode for the RBK850 system, it will only be the RBS20 satellite that will use AC technology?

 

Cheers!

You can leave AX mode enabled. The RBS20 will be acting like a wired AP is all.

Thanks again for the response.

Just to be sure I've understood, if I add an RBS20 satellite with a wired connection to the RBR853, the AC satellite will join the mesh network alongside the RBS850 satellites, the only difference will be that it's not capable of AX connections? 

 

Cheers!

Yes, it should. I tested a RBS50 wired to the RBR850 and it was working.
