Just bought a RBK852, couple of questions

Hi all,

 

just installed my new RBK852 without major issues, do have a coupel of questions:

 

  1. I can not find the "Fast Roaming" checkbox in the Orbi Settings page (Advanced --> Advanced --> Wireless Settings)?
  2. What channels should I choose for 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz?
  3. Any other recommendations for settings e.g. should I tune down Power COntrol as my Sattelite is not too far?

Thanks!

  2. What channels should I choose for 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz? Try setting manual channel 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4Ghz and any unused channel on 5Ghz.
  3. Any other recommendations for settings e.g. should I tune down Power COntrol as my Sattelite is not too far? What is the distance between the router and satellite(s)? 30 feet is recommended in between RBR and RBS to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected. https://kb.netgear.com/000036466/How-far-should-I-place-my-Orbi-satellite-from-my-Orbi-router
